As shown, public facilities that serve vulnerable populations utilize x-ray technologies as part of a comprehensive safety & security plan. People entering are screened Read More

As an example, handheld metal detectors far and away outnumber walk-through metal detectors because there are many more applications they are used for.

Tailgating Detection and Prevention: Enforce One Person Rule
