Bright, easy-to-interpret LED pinpoint lights on the walkthrough security detector's exit side, together with green and red patron pacing lights on the walkthrough security detector's entrance side help improve overall traffic throughput.

Garrett Quick QAdvanced Security Scanning Technology

Garrett is the industry leader with superior pinpoint detection technology and unmatched discrimination features. The Quick-Q technology sets the standard for today’s need to provide quicker venue access into stadiums, arenas, outdoor events, convention centers, and concert halls. This technology has the effectiveness of moving high volumes of patrons through events by reducing line queues and large crowds outside the venue.

When used with Garrett’s enhanced walk-through metal detectors, the Quick-Q technology does not require the divestment of cell phones or other small metallic items. This should reduce the number of items divested as fans are screened and improve ingress through-put rates.


  • Our dual-panel scanning technology offers more accurate detection and discrimination, left-center-right, head-to-toe
  • Quick-Q technology means we quickly speed you through the scanning process and alleviate line queues
  • Crowd reduction outside of each venue
  • Fewer false alarms
  • Faster lines
  • Industry-leading technology
  • This software package does not impact Safety Act certifications or submissions
