About Metal Detectors
Metal detectors simply are security systems which responsible for scanning and find the different kinds of metals and these security systems are designed and manufactured by electromagnetic fields. There are different types of metal detectors like handheld metal detectors, mobile metal detectors, or standing installed metal detectors (walking through metal detectors) that can scan and find the hidden items and components that may threaten the people’s security.
Walking through metal detectors an be found in sensitive places that need to be protected and secured like airports, public schools, courts, etc, and they should located in the entrance of the facility to guarantee avoiding any kind of suspicious and harmful items to be passed or crossed inside the facility which cause any kind of danger to the innocent people.
Metal detectors are differs from baggage X-Ray scanner because baggage X-Ray scanner is drawing the prohibited items on a screen, while metal detectors scan and find metal elements through sensors (sensitive units) installed in the security system and producing alarm sound in addition to small lights turning on and off in case of finding any kind of metal and this description is designed exactly in walking through metal detectors.
Metal detectors are playing a very necessary role in protecting the people and they are helping to reduce the rates of violence and crimes. So as we explained before that these systems are helping to scan and find out the dangerous thing like knives or guns or etc.

Do we have to be worried about our health if we walked through metal detector?
People thought that walking through metal detectors have dangerous and side effects on our health; so other types of metal detectors have been manufactured like handheld metal detector to make the scanning process easier to the people if they some doubts about the walking through metal detector. But in general all these types of metal detectors specially walking through metal detector are designed and manufactured to be secured and safe on the humans’ health even for pregnant women.
What are the benefits of using metal detectors?
Protecting people and saving their lives became the first priority in our life. So, protecting people’s lives became necessary to avoid and reduces the terrorism and criminal attacks, and to fail the criminals from causing any dangerous ways that might be harmful to innocent people. Now it is important and urgent for metal detectors to be installed in public facilities and sensitive places that can be easy targets for criminals and terrorists like: airports, schools, libraries, and etc.
The types of metal detectors:
- Handheld Metal Detector
The handheld metal detector is easy to be carried and it can be use for pointing and identifying the specific locations which include metal items.
