Sales & Service

ESCO Security Consulting offers the full line of CEIA metal detection equipment and the Meridian Hostile Vehicle Barriers (Archer 1200).

OPENGATE Weapons Detection System

 The OPENGATE Weapons Detection System provides an extremely high throughput with near-zero nuisance alarms and provides screening of non-divested people.  OPENGATE is a state-of-the-art wire free, screening portal consisting of two independent and self-powered pillars.  Each pillar weighs less than 25 pounds and can be used for indoor or outdoor operations.  Acoustic and optical signals, located at the top of the pillars, provide simultaneous status and alarm indications.

The OPENGATE system does not require patrons to remove personal objects prior to entering the metal detector.

  • Cell phones, watches, coins, keys, and jewelry can remain on the guest. 
  • Time saving technology speeds up the entry process, requiring less equipment and personnel.
  • The battery operated OPENGATE is water resistant, installs in less than three minutes and is easy to relocate.

PMD2 Walk-Through Metal Detectors

Through its research and development laboratories, CEIA is continuously investing in the design of equipment that provides the best compliance with the security requirements of public events. The results are metal detectors that have extremely high immunity to outside interference and high discrimination of personal objects. This allows for a higher flow rate and improved processing times.

  • Instruction of facilities department staff on deployment of equipment
  • Training of security team members for event day operation of equipment
  • Equipment Inspection Plan for CEIA-brand metal detectors (Free first annual review)
  • Equipment Loaner Program -- ESCO can loan a walk-through metal detector to client when an existing unit will be out of service for a long-term repair. Using one of our units will allow you to always be at full capability, especially if you have an upcoming major event.

Meridian Hostile Vehicle Barriers

The Archer 1200 barrier is both mobile and modular to satisfy the widest range of deployment requirements. These barriers can:

  • Limit damages from errant and dangerous drivers without impeding vital public safety and support vehicular access.
  • Temporarily shut off public roads to traffic for activities such as festivals, farmers markets, and parades;
  • Protect pedestrians at entrances to public buildings, parks, and other facilities; and,
  • Shield stores, warehouses, and loading docks from “Crash and Grab” robberies.

ESCO offers an inspection program for venues and facilities with existing CEIA walk-through metal detectors. This review can be scheduled prior to the start of your sporting and entertainment seasons to ensure each metal detector is functioning properly and meeting your required operating standards.

Our CEIA-trained and -certified technicians will assess, service, repair, clean, disinfect, and calibrate your walk-through metal detectors on-site at your venue. If a metal detector needs parts or replacement, we can place the order and schedule a time to repair/install the equipment. ESCO staff will certify each unit is set correctly and in proper working condition. A detailed summary of equipment updates and repairs for each metal detector will be provided.
