“We see combining technology and design as a rewarding challenge.”

INTOS combines technology and design
Security equipment manufacturers often focus exclusively on the technology. Technology is an important aspect, but for airports user-friendly design is essential as well. The design determines the passenger experience and encourages them to use the security equipment.
Specific security issues
Upon the customer’s request, INTOS develops innovative products for specific security issues with an architect or designer. With a keen eye for design, INTOS creates solutions that, above all, meet the expectations of the customer perfectly.
Space-saving search cabin
In 2010, INTOS developed the space-saving search cabin. Because search cabins are only used a couple of times a day, they are often considered a waste of space. INTOS developed a solution that offers optimum functionality and saves space.
Shoescanner on UV light
Together with Stage Gate 11 (SG11), a start-up in technological product development for the security industry, INTOS developed the Delta R Shoescanner. The Shoescanner is a detection unit that uses UV light for scanning passengers shoes. More accurately and rapidly than before, airports can now pick out passengers who have hidden unsafe and undesirable substances, like explosives or narcotics, in their shoes. INTOS advised SG11 about the design, material, sustainability and possibilities for maintenance. With the knowledge of the requirements from all the stakeholders like airports, passengers and security officers, INTOS has created a functional product. The resulting stand-alone column that now is the Shoescanner, is manufactured entirely in-house.
Security scanner housing
INTOS collaborated on the development of the housing for the security scanner. The design housing transforms the security scanner from a machine into an attractive interior component. This fits perfectly into the current aspiration for improving the passenger travel experience.
INTOS realised serveral security projects for e.g.:
- Abu Dhabi International Airport
- Kristiansand Airport Norway
- Aéroport Toulouse Blagnac (France)
- Amsterdam Airport Schiphol
- Warschau Frédéric Chopin Airport (Poland)
- Aéroport Marseille Provence (France)
- Royal Hangar (Muscat, Oman)
