GATESCAN-P Portable Metal Detector

Introducing the Gatescan-P

Probably the world’s most versatile walkthrough metal detector as it can be deployed and transported to virtually any location and be up and running within five minutes by a single operator

Often referred to as a knife arch, the Gatescan-P portable metal detector arch provides the ideal solution, when you need to scan large volumes of people (in a temporary location), quickly and efficiently for concealed weapons, or other hidden metal objects. 

It operates from rechargeable sealed batteries, has zone specific detection and is designed for use in demanding environments. Because of its modular construction it is the only multi-zone metal detector small enough to fit in the boot of a large car.



The unit is ideal for sporting events, conferences, schools, VIP security or for any event or location requiring high discrimination metal detection combined with ease of use and total portability.

It is fast and easy to set up and very simple to calibrate and use.

Due the simplicity of this unit, little operator training is required making it the ideal unit to use where there could be multiple users at any time.

I have found the Gate Scan to be very easy to use, and was really affective at our Winter Arts Market over the weekend. Adjusted the settings to detect exactly what we wanted it to, which prevented any unnecessary queueing due to false detections. The Gate Scan is extremely mobile and fits in any doorway, which helps when using various entrances for events. Would recommend this product to other Cathedrals
