Top 5 Security Metal Detectors

Like if this guide is helpful
When historians write the story of the early 21st century, one of the most used words is 'security'. Public safety is a part of daily life: just entering government buildings, public and private schools, entertainment venues, and airports, exposes the public to multiple types of surveillance and security checks. The most common checks are passing through a walk-through metal detector or sweeping with a handheld metal detecting wand. Whether a security specialist, working to keep the public safe, or a concerned citizen wanting to bolster a home or small business security plan, metal detectors need to be a consideration. To help consumers find the right metal detector at the right price, eBay offers a selection of detectors and other necessary security items.

The Securitex handheld metal detector model, SHMDS-1/ESH-10, is a lightweight (220 g), compact (7.7 cm by 2.6 cm by 37.5 cm), and easy-to-use handheld detector. Designed to detect even the smallest ferrous or non-ferrous metal object carried on an individual, regardless of clothing, this device is operational between -15 to 45 degrees C and scans a large area quickly, emitting an audible or vibration alert on positive identification.

The Titan handheld high-security metal detector and scanner looks quite different than most handheld detectors; taking a design cue from surveying metal detectors, the Titan high-security detector has a round detector head mounted to a shaft (envision a circle on a stick). This design expands the detector's area of sensitivity, while remaining compact at 35 cm by 14 cm by 4 cm. This device is operational between 0 to 40 degrees C and indicates a positive identification of ferrous and non-ferrous metal objects with an audible alert and LED indicators.

The detector also has a sensitive detector tip to offer the security person the ability to keep out of arm's reach of the person receiving the scan. A compact detector, the Garrett Superwand measures 8.3 cm by 3.2 cm by 48.3 cm and weighs 527 g, and has a wide operating temperature range from -37 degrees C to 70 degrees C.

Handheld Metal Detectors

Handheld metal detectors allow security personnel to check individuals quickly at transit centres, public buildings, financial institutions, and other locations in controlling traffic flow and maintaining safety. They are also useful as additional tools to use when an individual triggers an alarm on a walk-through metal detector, to pinpoint metal objects. Handheld detectors are lightweight, reasonably compact, and require little training to operate effectively.
