Multizone walkthrough detectors

July 2003 Access Control & Identity Management

Ranger - represented locally by Emergency Reaction Services (ERS) - has developed a range of high-speed security weapon detectors that are used around the world by airports, government agencies and some of the largest corporations in the world.

The state-of-the-art Ranger multizone walkthrough detectors indicate the exact location of hidden weapons or metal contraband and eliminate the need for long lines while people 'strip' down before passing through the detector.

The Ranger detectors can recognise that normal quantities of coins or keys are not weapons and are a suitable solution for airports, large sports events, conferences or exhibitions where speed and convenience are as important as the high security required. The Ranger technology also reduces the number of staff required to monitor the detector as strip searches, generated by false alarms, are reduced to a minimum.

Many metal detectors are accumulative detectors, ie, they take into account all the metal on the person, including nails in shoes, pens, eye glass frames, belt buckles and watches, and then activate the alarm. This leads to constant hand body searches that not only irritate many clients but are also very time consuming. These problems can be overcome with Ranger's multizone detectors.

Furthermore, ERS now offer both short and long term rentals. This includes both walk through and handheld detectors.
