Improvements in vehicle and venue search kits

Allen Vanguard : 11 June, 2007  (New Product)
Side viewing endoscope and bright tip illumination in visual search kit improves security and drug search capabilities for port authorities and law enforcement bodies.
Allen-Vanguard has enhanced its visual search kit (SKM) to assist security, drug and contraband search teams.

The portable SKM, already in use with crime teams, was developed in conjunction with UK police and military personnel to provide equipment for the rapid searching of venues, vehicles, aircraft or ships of any size.

The kit includes a side-viewing endoscope for searching remote areas through a 10mm gap, with a 10W halogen lamp in its tip providing bright illumination that aids inspection over distances of up to 1.5 metres. Power for the endoscope is supplied from a secondary socket in the fluorescent hand lamp included with the kit.

The search mirrors include a long telescopic model that extends to 1.4 metres for inspecting otherwise inaccessible areas - in and above transport containers, for example - and a short fixed length model which is ideal for room to room searches.

Both can be fitted with the range of interchangeable mirror heads which are supplied with the kit. Also included is a fluorescent hand lamp to provide a wide area working light and two right angle torches with belt clips.

A selection of miniature mirrors, light probes and illuminated magnifiers are part of the SKM, all assisting in the internal inspection of suspect packages with minimal disturbance. Mirror sizes range from 4.5mm in diameter.

The visual search kit is supplied in a protective foam-lined carrying case complete with batteries and replacement lamps.

Glyn Buckler, sales director at Allen-Vanguard, explains: "In today's heightened state of alert, search teams need to be on constant guard for even the smallest of threats. At Allen-Vanguard, we provide a range of pre-emptive security search equipment that combine with individually tailored training scenarios to create a package that is aligned with the end-user's exact requirements."
