Screening inbound mail against postal IEDs and other personal harm devices such as razor blades that can be easily delivered through the postal system is standard practice in organisations committed to protecting their people and their property. Some organisations may also find that mailroom security measures are becoming part of their standard insurance requirements.
Scanmail 10k is the world’s most popular compact desk-top electronic mailscreener for security checking letters and small packages for the presence of harmful devices. It is mobile and can work off battery meaning you can transport it to wherever suspicious mail needs to be checked – ie to an office on a different floor, another office or to a hotel or residence where a VIP may need protection whilst travelling.
Auto detection of suspect packages.
Scanmail is not operator dependent like an x-ray machine so it will automatically find highly explosive letterbombs/postal IEDS. It does not rely on finding explosive material and instead looks for the individual bomb making components such as detonators, batteries and circuitry. It will also find other common mail delivered hazards such as razor blade letters and cutting devices whilst reliably ignoring office clutter such as paperclips and staples.
Over 10,000 Scanmail units are used to protect staff in Government, Embassy, UN, Police and Military locations as well as in Corporate Mailrooms.
Scanmail 10K is used throughout the world in high security locations as well as in private residences, for Lawyers, Celebrities, MPs and for Royalty Protection. Scanmail 10K was also the machine that saved the life of one of the Unabomber’s intended victims by successfully intercepting one of his postal devices.
High Discrimination and Reliability
Unlike other cheap metal detector imitations, Scanmail is not simply a metal detector, it is an intelligent device with advanced discrimination that allows you to reliably find a small battery while discriminating against paperclips and staples.
No other unit in the world can reliably do this and Scanmail has a 20 year pedigree and has proven itself time and time again by finding real live postal bombs that would have injured and maimed their targets had they not been intercepted. At the same time, unlike other mailscreening devices, has been scientifically proven that it gives off no damaging RF that could accidentally trigger a postal device
Scanmail 10K can be used alone or alongside an x-ray machine as the first line of defence against postal bombs.
Training and Maintenance
Scanmail is easy to use, works straight out of its box with no set up or calibration required. The unit is independent of operator detection skiils so special training is required. Because it has no moving parts and emits no radiation there is no expensive regular maintenance, recalibration or radiation checks are required.
In the rare event that the equipment malfunctions, Scanmail has a backup circuit that can be switched into with a single button selection to maintain the ability to carry out mailscreening.
