There is no doubt that properly monitored gun-free areas are less susceptible to violent crime. In the past, the major hassle using weapon detectors was the slow traffic through the detectors caused by bad discrimination, ie false alarms.
Ranger's modern technology reduces the risk for both staff and clients. Ranger's multizone technology, with 18 zones, scans the different areas of one's body independently, ignoring small harmless objects. "The days of old technology units, that keep alarming for the smallest belt buckle or watch are over," states Morris Maram, MD of Emergency Reaction Services. "The built-in display on the detector even displays the location of a contraband item or items on the person being scanned. Faster traffic flows are possible with the minimum of staff required to monitor the unit."
The new addition of side panel indicators as well as on the built-in display, take the weapon location system one step further. Shift supervisors and management staff watching on CCTV systems can now see at a glance the status of the detector.
Many metal detectors are accumulative detectors, taking into account all the metal on the person, including nails in shoes, pens, spectacle frames, belt buckles, watches etc, and then activate the alarm. This leads to body searches that not only irritate many clients but are also time-consuming.
The Ranger Security Detectors protect institutions that require the most secure and error-free detection. This ranges from a group of multiple detectors placed side by side protecting Andrews Air Force Base to monitoring very high traffic flows at Disneyland. A sample of other Ranger users include Universal Studios, New York State Prisons, United Parcel Service, Dell Computers, IBM, Compaq and Circuit City. In southern Africa users of Ranger detectors include the Botswana Reserve Bank, the Airports Company, NIA, SAPS, DTI, SANDF, Telkom, Vodacom, Kutama-Sinthumule Maximum Security Prison, Nelson Mandela Metropolitan Council, mining houses, refineries and the new building extensions to parliament in Cape Town.
Ranger Security Detectors are distributed by Emergency Reaction Services.
