Finding Clandestines
Scan-X Security are the sole UK partner of human prescence detection provider MicroSearch. This clever technology allows the location of clandestines, or people hiding covertly, normally in vehicles. The use of 4 sensors which compare the level of background vibration to that in a vehicle allows the location of people hiding covertly through the vibration that is caused by a human heartbeat. This makes it impossible for anyone hiding to avoid detection. Scan-X can provide this technology by both sale and leasing options. We’ve built on a long track record with MicroSearch by providing 2 systems to correctional facilities in the UK. Operators of the system can be trained to use it quickly. Once sensors are attached results are normally available in a matter of seconds.
With the increase in human trafficking and refugee flows cause by an unstable world such technology is increasingly relevant to transport and cargo companies who are legally liable for clandestines entering the UK via their vehicles. So if you’re in this sector its important to ensure compliance with all required legislation.

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.

Scan-X at Passenger Expo

PTXScan-X at Passenger Expo
Passenger Terminal Expo 2017 is the world’s main airport conference allowing leaders in the aviation sector the chance to share knowledge and network face to face. Scan-X has been an exclusive agent to Nuctech in Non-Aviation for some time, but were appointed the exclusive agent for all of the UK and have since sold several Dual View machines including 320KV CX180180DH units into airfreight.

Scan-X Security is now capable of supplying and servicing standard 3 security x-ray equipment (the latest standard for aviation providing 3 dimensional images using CT or computed tomography technology).
The Nuctech range of equipment is complemented by explosives and narcotics trace detection kit – capable of finding minute traces of either – and liquid inspection technology capable of rapidly analysing the liquid in bottles. This exciting development builds on our existing partnership with Ceia the world’s leading archway metal detection supplier enabling Scan-X to provide the full range of equipment that’s needed in the UK.

Aviation Protection

Physical security leaders Scan-X Security have recently been selected to provide and support security screening equipment at one of the UK’s newest fixed based operators. With a business that provides support services to private fliers – many of whom are household names – security screening from a trusted vendor is paramount.

Scan-X were selected to provide dual view security x-ray machines to screen baggage. Required by recent legislation dual view x-ray imaging allows operators to see inside baggage from 2 angles. Enabling greater clarity and therefore security. Trace detection technology was also provided to screen for explosives and narcotics, and is capable of finding minute quantities of either.

Scan-X also installed archways from leading archway metal detection provider Ceia. Noted for their high quality and sensitivity, these are the brand of archways you would see in 90% of UK airports and Scan-X are working closely with Ceia.

A further reason for Scan-X’s selection in addition to the quality of the equipment was the quality of the support and speed of response offered by the Scan-X team. With more than 80% of Scan-X business consisting of repeat orders, particularly in the form of service contracts, our client can be confident that we will be here for them for the long term.

The Dual View Experts

Scan-X continue to supply dual view x-ray machines to key sites in the country. Recent client wins include sites at key air hubs – Stanstead, London City and Heathrow. The nature of these sites means that the maximum uptime is required from security screening equipment. 2 factors are therefore key. Firstly the quality of the machines themselves is of course vital. Secondly the ability of the Scan-X team to support the equipment supplied with both pre-emptive and reactive maintenance. In both of these criteria Scan-X checked all of the boxes with flying colours leading to our selection.

In addition to x-ray machines Scan-X provided a number of TR2000 DB-A trace detectors, providing screening for a wide range of explosives and narcotics simultaneously in a highly convenient desktop form factor.

If you would like to see a demonstration of the above equipment – or know more about us in general – please call or email us any time.

The Sports Supporters

Scan-X Security have been confirmed once again as the physical security screening supplier to two of the UK’s largest sporting tournaments. The high quality of the images provided by the x-ray machines and airport standard archways played a key role in our repeat selection for this year following successful delivery in 2016. A further factor in our selection being the experience and professionalism of the Scan-X engineering team which was an important consideration for these household name events.

In 2017 Scan-X will supply 52 x-ray machines and 25 archway metal detectors from our large inventory to these 2 high profile events.
