Protecting the UK’s major events

As the photos show the Scan-X Security rental division have been especially busy protecting the UK this summer.

Our team have provided security screening equipment (x-ray machines, metal detection archways and related equipment) to several large sporting events such as tennis and golf. We have also supported a series of open air concerts in both Hyde Park and Victoria Park.

Scan-X have also provided similar security for the recent visit of one of the world’s most high profile political leaders in Turnberry, the annual Muslim conference and a major religious event held at the Excel Centre in London.

So far this year, we’ve deployed 65 x-ray machines, 156 archway metal detectors, 580 hand held wands and 12 trace detectors.

We can help with any event from 1 day VIP protection to longer duration events, with an extensive range of equipment and the ability to provide onsite support engineers if needed.

Checkpoint Security for a Major UK Sporting Event

Building on an impressive portfolio of UK clients Scan-X have again been chosen to provide the physical security for one of the UK’s household name sports events. Our experienced team set up the 16 x-ray machines shown for baggage screening at the venue entrance. The machines were supplied by Nuctech and have gained excellent feedback from other sports events, particularly regarding the crystal clear images that are provided. Complementing these x-ray machines were 50 airport quality metal detection wands from the manufacturer Ceia. Scan-X engineers were on site to support the equipment provided and ensure fast responses.

317-min (1)
Scan-X Security helped to secure the AGM for a household name UK bank by providing 2 x-ray bag scanners and 3 archway metal detectors. The archway metal detectors were of the type normally used in UK airports, having excellent discrimination capabilities. The x-ray machines were from Nuctech, who have gained excellent feedback on the clarity of the images generated from one of the UK’s most major sporting events. Scan-X also provided an onsite engineer to supervise the equipment which is something we offer as an option to all of our clients if they would like it.
We quite possibly have the largest rental fleet of 45 X-ray machines and 55 Archway metal detectors in the UK. We are well placed to help with any rental needs from 1 day upwards at short notice.

Protecting a visiting past president

Obama 1Scan-X Security were selected to provide the physical security screening for a past president visiting Edinburgh. Our expertise in protecting high profile events and the quality of our equipment were key reasons behind the decision to use us to protect him and his guests at the May 2017 event. All visitors were protected by airport grade metal detectors and high quality x-ray machines. This equipment was provided by the Scan-X rental division who have the flexibility to support anything from a 1 day VIP event through to large scale sporting events over several weeks. We can provide just the equipment by itself or on site staff to manage it also, as required by our clients. If we can help you, just let our team know anytime.

We will be exhibiting!

Visit Stand F35 to meet with Scan-X Security & Ensco as they launch the new Microsearch G4.0 System to the UK market.

This new system detects and deters clandestines and helps to enhance security. It is faster, quicker and more precise than visual inspections. This system tracks, analyses and retrieves to prove that the industry standards are met.

It detects heartbeats in vehicles. It is attached by two sensors to either end of the vehicles that detects the heartbeats. The system allows you to see which sensor is generating more activity making it easier to detect the person inside. It allows the operator to easily determine if the system is actively working in the situation and helps to identify locations where vibrations may be present and determine if wind or other vibrations are present.

It can provide real-time feedback on wind speed and direction. It can capture and image of the vehicle under the test which may include the license plate. It then allows those images to be added to database for future reference.

Whilst at the expo, why not visit another of our suppliers Nuctech.

We look forward to seeing you on Stand F35 at UK Security Expo!

Service & Support

If your company uses security x-ray and Archway metal detection technology you will be aware that such technology requires regular servicing and support. Since they contain a source of radiation, by law security x-ray machines must have at least one critical examination and one radiation survey as a minimum. Containing moving parts also, it makes sense to have regular services and inspections conducted.
