Garrett Electronics Security Metal Detection Products

Garrett Metal Detectors is a key player in the research, development and manufacture of security-related metal detection products.

The company’s security division manufactures walk-through, handheld and ground-search metal detectors for security, law enforcement, and countermine / explosive remnants of war (ERW) applications worldwide.

Founded in 1964 by Charles Garrett, the company has furnished security checkpoint screening solutions for many types of public domain, including prisons, government buildings, schools and universities, airports, mass transit terminals, hospitals, sports facilities, and other entertainment venues.

Security-related metal detection manufacture and training

The company provides complete instruction of its security detection products’ applications through the Garrett Academy, which offers one of the world’s most comprehensive courses for checkpoint screening. Garrett Metal Detectors is an international standards organization (ISO) 9001 certified manufacturer, and has provided security for several Olympic Games.

These events are often scattered throughout different regions of the host country, but Garrett’s security team is well experienced in coordinating the local logistics for the Olympics and other global international contests, such as the World Cup and Pan-American Games. Experience with such large scale events translates to better procedures and better features for other security applications.

Multi-Zone walk-through metal detector

The Garrett PD 6500i walk-through metal detector, available in grey and beige color schemes, is designed for maximum patron throughput, and has been approved by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA). This detector features 33 distinct zones to precisely identify multiple target locations. With transmitters and receivers in each panel, the detector scans from both sides, providing superior detection, uniformity and performance. Easy to assemble, the detector meets TSA, European Airports and other international security requirements.

Portable and economical walk-through metal detector

The Garrett CS 5000 walk-through metal detector is economical and highly popular. It features a digital signal processor (DSP) designed to automatically suppress or eliminate electrical interference associated with X-ray devices, video monitors and communications equipment, helping to reduce the likelihood of nuisance alarms and improve traffic throughput. The CS 5000 is portable and can be operated by a remote console or battery pack as required.

Hand-held one-touch metal detector

The Garrett SuperWand features a one-touch button and three-color LED display to provide 360° detection of all ferrous and non-ferrous metallic objects. Users can choose between a clear audible or silent vibrate / LED alarm signal.

Hand-held metal detector for manual pat downs

Designed as an alternative for manual pat downs during weapons screenings, the Super Scanner V includes both audible and vibrating alarm options, as well as extended battery life. Rebar sensitivity is reduced while scanning at ankle level, thanks to the addition of a reduction switch.

Tactical hand-held metal detector

Used for quick, easy and reliable hidden weapons searches, the Garrett Tactical Hand-held Detector (THD) is designed to detect all ferrous, non-ferrous and stainless-steel weapons, as well as contraband and other metallic objects. It features a 360°, 3.5in detection area for unrestricted scanning angles when conducting hands-free body searches.
