What is a good metal detector?

Most of our clients trust us to not only provide great security officers but also to bring to the table knowledge around the industry leading products and how to most effectively use them. One piece of equipment that stands above the rest and is currently used by all of our clients looking to utilize a walkthrough metal detector, is the Garrett PD 6500i Security Metal Detector.

We feel this metal detector leads the industry by using superior pinpoint technology and unmatched discrimination features. Designed to be able to scan a large group of people without compromising security, the PD 6500i is the walk-through of choice for our clients and security teams.

Types of Clients

We use this security metal detector for a variety of our clients.

Warehouse Facility: We provide security for large scale manufacturing and production facilities that run their businesses out of warehouse environments. Getting employees, visitors and other managers in and out as quickly and accurately as possibly is our top priority. Delays in this process, cost our clients money by reducing the work the effectiveness of their workforce. This is one of the main reason we use the PD 6500i. It also us to pinpoint the area in question and allows for our team to effectively asses and disable any threat without holding up the line. Our clients look to us for both creating a safe and secure work environment while also minimize all losses through loss prevention.

Events: Whether attending a private of public event, no one attending looks forward to standing in long security lines. However more importantly no one attending wants to be confronted with a dangerous or violent outcome due to a lack or reduces quality of security. Because the PD 6500i resets each reading rather quickly, we are able to scan large amounts of people in a rather short amount of time. The detachable base with wheels also allows for this unit to be easily moved and setup by just one individual.

Offices: For the our commercial clients that use the PD6500i, they find it a non-obtrusive way to scan individuals coming and going. The clean grey finish, blends in well with most office environments and the way that the power cords are concealed  makes for a very professional setting.

In addition to the Garrett PD 6500i, our guards also utilize handheld metal detectors to be able to descover and isolate all threats without holding up the flow of people.
