Now your security system can make a statement and blend seamlessly with your library’s décor. Designed for use with 3M™ Tattle-Tape™ Security Strips, the 3M™ Detection System Select Series offers you the performance you need and security you can count on to protect your library items from loss. Along with a built-in red LED alarm light and a low frequency signal to minimize separation needed between the detection system and nearby metal objects, it also features an audible alarm and is completely safe for all magnetic media. With over 30 different color and design options available and a variety of mounting options and corridor configurations, this unit provides the flexibility to keep up with the changing look of your library without replacing your security system.
