More than the sum of its parts.

The Garrett Paragon possesses the best attributes of its predecessors, but also introduces never-before seen setup and operation features, as well as a distinct and pleasing new aesthetic. Modern, mission-critical security systems require a detector that is connectable, adaptable, and reliable. Paragon is all of that and more.

A model of excellence.

Paragon sets the bar for the future of high-security detection with its user-empowering features and high-performance detection capabilities. Catch the ferrous and non-ferrous metallic contraband you want to find with more program options than ever and improved sensitivity and interference immunity.

Diverse applications.

From stadiums to courthouses and theme parks to schools, Paragon has the flexibility to serve the needs of your moment. Respond in real-time with easily adjustable settings and superior mobility, ensuring that surprise traffic changes or unexpected VIPs never leave your security system scrambling.

One Paragon. Two Simultaneous Sensitivities



With Ambiscan, one detector does the work of two. This Paragon feature allows supervisors to set two distinct sensitivities based on the direction of traffic. Catch weapons coming in. Catch company property going out.

  • Halves the size of your security checkpoint.
  • Eliminate user error from excess detectors or repeated settings changes.
  • Reduce operator fatigue by only alarming on the targets you want to catch.
Double the Detection

Paragon has dual transmit and receive capability in both panels, a Garrett industry exclusive.

This means:

  • Evenly distributed detection across the walkthrough portal. Single-sided detectors experience falloff as the transmit strength varies from left to right. Paragon eliminates this weakness
  • Simplified multi-unit setup. Paragon’s doubled perspective improves its ability to account for and eliminate the interference caused by other walkthroughs in close proximity.
  • Superior target analysis. Paragon’s bilateral screening is the electromagnetic equivalent of binocular vision, enhancing the ability of the detector to precisely identify and distinguish objects within the portal.
Catch Threats Quickly

Emphasize high risk zones with Zone Boost. All 22 of Paragon’s horizontal bands are independently adjustable for maximum finesse in addressing the detection needs of your facility.
