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.
