Under Vehicle Security Inspection Systems - FAQ
Why do I need uplighting for vehicle inspections?
Checkpoints, embassies, border stations, military bases, and secure facilities face increased threats and require advanced security measures. Vehicle inspection light fixtures use a simple yet reliable design to enhance inspection conditions to help prevent incidents. Our security uplights deliver exceptional illumination of vehicle undercarriages and assist security personnel with identifying contraband during vehicle inspections.
How many fixtures are required for the UVSS?
We recommend selecting fixtures based on the length of the inspection area. Different vehicles will have different undercarriage lengths. Typically fixtures are spaced 3 feet apart. We recommend a 25’ layout for vans – which requires 20 fixtures. For layouts that accommodate buses, we recommend the 46’ layout using 34 fixtures. For semi-trucks or big rigs, we recommend a 70’ inspection area with 50 fixtures.
What components are included in the UVSS?
Basic packages may be customized and expanded to fit your needs. Each basic UVSS package – or under vehicle inspection system – includes fixtures, base cans, connectors, hand-held inspection mirror. Some systems also include an optional system controller.
What makes the TSC inspection system better?
We use a sophisticated and simple design. Fewer moving parts mean an unparalleled design in terms of reliability and durability. TSC vehicle inspection systems are easy to install and require virtually no maintenance.
How do I install an under vehicle inspection system?
We recommend selecting an installer with experience installing airfield lighting equipment. Installation methods can depend on a few factors, but common methods include trench and fill, or saw cut and core drill. Be sure to ask your installer for more information.
How do I select the right fixture for my application?
We offer two fixture options to address the requirements of your situation. The TS-300 and the TS-350 are both anodized aluminum fixtures that allow for halogen bulb or LED light sources. Select the TS-300 if you need a low profile model and the TS-350 if you have personnel performing inspections and need a fully flush design that eliminates any tripping hazard.
How do I decide on the system configuration I need?
Systems can be configured to meet the requirements of your particular situation. If you know the length of the inspection area, or the type of vehicles to be inspected, those are both good places to start. The number of fixtures required is usually determined from those two factors. You can select from one of our pre-built packages, or call for help with a custom configuration.
