, Ltd., a premier provider of security screening equipment, today announced the availability of OPENGATE™
, the new generation of weapons detection system characterized by an open structure that quickly provides automatic and unprecedented screening of people with purses, backpacks and luggage for mass casualty shooting weapons detection. Weighing only 25 pounds, its lightweight, portable design installs in less than 1 minute with simple turn on and go operation. This fast, easy setup requires no setting and assembly of mechanical and electrical parts, including no mechanical or electrical connection in its passageway, therefore there are no cords or obstacles between its two pillars to step or trip over.
Game Day at Record Speed
With over 50 years in metal detection and electromagnetics experience and billions of people screened every year, CEIA
is constantly evolving and innovating security screening solutions. OPENGATE™
provides a near-zero low nuisance alarm rate on personal, non-threat items compared with any other detection system available today. Overall, OPENGATE™
is a detection device that prevents the access of mass casualty shooting weapons in protected areas with minimum or no impact on the checkpoint transit flow and throughout. This very high transit rate and extreme threat item discrimination allows the inspection of people, along with their personal items and carry-on bags with zero or minimum waiting time and secondary screening costs. With OPENGATE™
, individuals can go ahead and keep their bags on them since there is no need for the divestiture of non-threat items such as cell phones, tablets, metal water/beverage/sunscreen bottles, cases, tobacco tins, and more.
Keep Them Safe While You Keep Them MovingOPENGATE™
’s extreme portability allows fast relocation of the gate, offering the most suitable solution for places where the checkpoint must be moved from obstructions after use.
