Hand-Held Security Metal Detector Wand

Hand-held security metal detectors are used by companies and organisations across the UK to secure their premises and ensure their events are safe. This metal detector is suitable for a range of locations including nightclubs and pubs, indoor and outdoor events, transport hubs, hospitals, courts and more.

One of the major benefits of a hand-held metal detector wand is that it is easy to carry and store, ensuring it can be easily transported to different locations or stored out of sight when not needed.

Features of Quality Hand Held Security Metal Detectors

This superior hand-held security metal detector wand comes with increased sensitivity to better than 0.1. grams detection mass, allowing users to catch more suspicious metals on guests or workers than ever before. This model incorporates a simultaneous audio/visual alarm facility, generating both audio and visual cues if the device detects something suspicious. This has the benefit of alerting nearby colleagues to what’s going on and it can be useful in volatile situations where assistance may be needed immediately.

Alternatively, the audio alert can be disabled by the user to offer a visual alarm indication alone. This offers a more discreet alert, which can be useful for situations where the operator is working alone and needs to call for assistance or when causing a panic would be counterproductive. By combining both modes into one model, this hand-held metal detector wand combines the best of both worlds.

Where to Use the Hand-Held Security Metal Detector Wand

Security personnel in numerous environments will benefit from being provided with quality hand-held security metal detectors. Something as simple as scanning cinemagoers for weapons or recording devices can be undertaken quickly and without the need for invasive searches.

Most people will be happy to have a security metal detector wand used to check their person while many would feel violated if more invasive body-searching was used, even if searches were designed to protect their safety. Hand-held security metal detectors, therefore, enable organisations to meet their security requirements without upsetting customers or guests.
