Recently celebrating 25 years of providing quality service and instruction in securing facilities throughout the U.S., Point Security, Inc. is now set up to vend and service Smiths Detection B-Scan units. The new units help to reduce the smuggling of illicit substances, weapons, cell phones, and other contraband concealed internally or externally on the body. B-Scan systems are used throughout the world to keep airports and prisons safe, and in preventing the movement of drugs across borders.
"Smiths Detection B-Scan technology relies on the latest developments and advances in the use of x-rays in scanning and detection, and we are excited to now be able to offer it to our clients,” says Brian Holland, President of Point Security, Inc. “We understand the important role that low-dose rates plays in ensuring transportation, port and border security, as well as keeping first responders, military personnel and those being scanned safe.”
B-Scan units use fixed components, which help to reliably maintain a system and keep lifetime operation costs low. Currently, there are more than 250 such units in place throughout the world, in applications as varied as correctional facilities, airports and border checkpoints, as well as in mines and refineries, helping to cut down on diamond, gem and precious metal theft by employees.
Some of the additional key features of the B-Scan unit include: high “throughput”, or a scan time of less than seven seconds; complete head-to-toe inspection with or without shoes being worn; and very low radiation dose rates. Smiths Detection is one of the world’s leaders in securing against chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and explosive (CBRNE) threats.
Point Security’s team of professionals is highly capable of providing routine maintenance and emergency repairs on many brands of security equipment. The company’s extensive inventory counts among it the latest technology available for short and long-term rental, non-destructive testing and long-term leases.
