Walk-Through Metal Detectors

Share This Post:

Walk-through metal detectors, like those seen at airports, provide a mission-critical function of detecting weapons within our Safety Entrances®. Though very large in our universe, “walk-throughs” represent only a portion of the types of metal detectors used for a variety of applications. As an example, handheld metal detectors far and away outnumber walk-through metal detectors because there are many more applications they are used for. Think of that guy on the beach in search of lost watches & such.

Walk-through metal detectors are significantly more sophisticated than the ones you see treasure hunters using on the beach. They are also more discriminating than the handheld metal detectors used by security personnel at rock concerts.  Walk-through metal detectors are not only looking for metal; they’re looking for types of metal mass signatures that have similar profiles as guns and knives.

Today’s metal detectors also incorporate cameras and detection sensors for contraband, precious metals, and even radioactive materials.

In high-sensitivity applications, metal detectors can detect small metallic objects such as a single razor blade, while still providing optimal immunity to environmental interference.

If you been through airport security, you’ve most likely been screened by Ceia’s O2PN20  metal detector.  The O2PN20 is the preferred model and brand of choice for U.S. Airports and federal facilities. We also recommend Ceia’s products for detecting weapons in our Safety Entrances®.

For high flow-rate applications, CEIA also offers Walk-Through Metal Detectors with extremely high discrimination of personal metal objects to minimize the incidence of nuisance alarms.

The highest quality Metal Detectors fully comply with the requirements of the NIJ0601.02 Standard for all Security Levels. Compliance translates to applications in situations that vary from the inspection of visitors to that of inmates in top-security checkpoints, even in areas with strong electrical and mechanical interferences.

In high-sensitivity applications, NIJ compliant weapons detectors can detect small metallic objects, such as a single razor blade while still providing optimal immunity to environmental interference. This performance capability is a must for federal and municipal penal institutions, courthouses, and law enforcement agencies.

As long as there as there are people to be protected and assets to be safeguarded, there will be a need for weapons detection. With so much at stake, it only makes sense to use the best of the best when there is a zero risk tolerance.
