Used in conjunction with other sensors and inspections by security personnel, the scales have been installed in multiple lanes and entrances.

The WTC complex was the site of the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001.

“The scales are part of the campus-wide security perimeter and help to identify vehicles that may be carrying dangerous materials,” the company says in a statement. 

Screening of cars, buses and delivery vehicles includes weighing with Intercomp’s solution to identify anything “irregular or overweight”.
