The Security Screening Experts

A track record of providing physical security screening to the highest profile sites in the country lead to Scan-X being chosen to partner with a government agency. Our company has been selected to help provide evidence and statistics related to the freight screening process and provided a large x-ray system similar to the one shown to assist in this. This work will help the government understand the best processes and methods for finding weapons and threat items and thus to help prevent terrorism. Our experience in securing high profile sites was a significant reason for our selection. We are proud that our expertise and high quality equipment will help the processes that are designed to make our country a safer place to live and work.


Supporting the UK’s Cargo Screening

With a heightened security environment in general and imported goods screening in particular coming into increasing focus the UK continues to rely on Scan-X Security’s expertise. Our expert engineers maintain five very large mobile vehicle x-ray systems and one fixed system. These are x-ray systems at select locations within the UK capable of screening an entire lorry at a time to find contraband within the containers.

Providing both proactive and reactive maintenance services, our team make sure that these important systems have a high level of uptime. These skills are transferrable to our other clients so whatever industry you are in – airports and airfreight, logistics, private industry and events & venues – we can ensure your physical security screening has the highest level of operational availability. Our engineers are supported by a real time GPS tracking system so we can always assign the nearest engineer to a task. This makes for efficient and quick responses. They also carry a wide range of much needed parts to hand for the greatest chance of a first time fix. Surprisingly, this is not a standard process in our industry.

If you would like to know how we can help you with supporting and servicing physical security screening equipment (x-ray machines, metal detection archways and explosives and narcotics detection) or providing new equipment then contact our team anytime on 01922 455 222.

Our Wide Experience in Event Protection











Helping protect high profile sites is at the heart of what we do here at Scan-X Security. If you have an event or VIP visit and need security equipment – x-ray machines, metal detection archways and handhelds – its likely that we can help you. Even if you just need equipment for one day and at short notice. In addition to the high quality of our equipment our clients benefit from our wide ranging experience in protecting very different events and scenarios. This means that we are well placed to advise clients on how to screen their guests. Making sure the process is safe and efficient and done with the least intrusion possible.
As an example of our breadth of experience in different environments two of the many venues we’ve recently protected include a high profile court in London and an outdoor festival in Liverpool. The court is a very high profile site in our capital city. We provided them with an x-ray machine which was a high quality unit of the type we also provide to one of the UK’s major annual sporting events. This was accompanied by a highly sensitive metal detection archway and handheld units.
Our client in Liverpool run an annual outdoor music festival and use physical security screening in a marquee at the gateway to the event. Multiple channels are employed for fast guest throughput as the event is well attended. As for all of our clients we made life easy by also providing associated items which may be of use for event security, for example search trays (for keys and coins and so on).
We believe all events involving either large numbers of visitors or VIPs should strongly consider security screening. Especially in todays high threat environment. If you think we can help you then please contact our expert event team anytime on 01922 455 222 or 07794 213 960.





Freight Screening Experts

Scan-X recently installed the first of many 320KV Dual view machines in the UK at a Heathrow based Freight forwarder.
This was a special moment for us. We have installed many dual view machines before, but this unit is a huge step forward in power and penetration.
The Nuctech CX180180DH is the jewel in our crown for freight screening. This machine has a tunnel size of 1.8m x 1.8m, 320kv generators giving up to 70 mm penetration. It includes stainless steel drive rollers. We also supply roller guards to provide protection from fork lift trucks.jic

Protecting Jalsa Salana

Jalsa Salana is the formal annual gathering of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community in the UK. Scan-X help protect this event with airport standard metal detection archways, handheld wands and security x-ray machines. These provide a very visible security screening prescence at the checkpoint to the event and a welcome reassurance factor for all the quests attending. Our equipment is provided on a short term rental basis by the Scan-X rental team. They can help with any requirement from 1 day VIP protection up to a several week major sporting event.IMG_0892

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.

Protecting British Summertime

With a heightened threat environment its more important than ever to make sure that events involving crowds have an appropriate level of security screening. In addition to security such equipment provides a reassurance factor that visitors to well attended events increasingly expect to see. The experts in event checkpoint security, Scan-X Security, were again chosen to provide physical security screening for the open air British summer time festival taking place in Hyde Park London. This consisted of 20 archway metal detectors and 50 wands. The client was therefore assured of a high level of screening against metallic threats together with the powerful physical deterrent provided by channeling visitors through metal detection archways. Combining the archways with wands enables flexible screening and for suspect individuals to be given an additional closer inspection if needed. Scan-X Security engineers were on hand to ensure fast responses, which is something we are able to offer to all of our clients should they want it.BST

Major Tennis Event

Scan-X are now in our fourth year of providing physical security screening for a major sporting event. Our rental division provide this prestigious client with 27 security x-ray machines and 26 metal detection archways. We continue to get great feedback on the clear images provided by our Nuctech x-ray machines. This has lead to them being installed at a number of other high profile UK venues. The archways we provide are from the manufacturer Ceia. They are widely acknowledged to provide the highest quality metal detection archways in the UK being the type that you would most commonly see in a UK airport.

Protecting the AGM for a large UK Bank

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.
