Delta's affordable, commercial crash-tested portable barrier protects against terrorists & errant drivers

The MP5000 was built for US Federal government security specialists wanting a system that could be rapidly deployed and operated as a regular security gate or barrier system. Demonstrated in a full-scale crash test, the barrier stopped and disabled a 15,000lb G.V.W. (66.7kN) vehicle moving at 40mph (64kph). Following the certification test, the system was fully functional and sustained only minor distortion of the barrier ramp (approximately .75 inches). Quick deployment for secure roadways Once positioned, the Delta mobile barricade is separated from its transporter and lowered into position by means of a Battery-Operated Hydraulic Power System, which is then used to raise or lower the barrier for normal or emergency tasks. The controls to run the barrier can be located on the barrier, at a fixed secure post, or from a hand-held push button controller. The guard need not go to the barrier to raise or lower it from its guard position. 15-minute installation Within 15 minutes of being sited, the Delta mobile crash barrier lowers itself into position with built-in hydraulic jacks. There is no hand cranking. Wheels are restored at the sides and then the vehicle ramps are folded out, completing the deployment. To move the barrier, the procedures are simply reversed. Both the operation of the barrier as well as deployment and retrieval are push-button controlled. A standard system includes a battery-operated power unit, replenished from either a solar array or multiple local low voltage sources. Optionally, a Delta Hydraulic Power Unit operated on a locally supplied power or full manual system, or combination, is available. Both the locally powered and battery powered hydraulic pumping unit can be sized to provide pass-through rates suitable for most inspection and identification station requirements. The barricade operates at rates between 10–15 seconds for a full up-down cycle. Sustained rates of 40 cycles per hour can be maintained indefinitely, depending on the available recharging methods employed. DSC1000 commercial barrier The DSC1000 is the commercial extension of the MP5000. Many municipalities, event organisers and others that stage temporary events, ranging from farmers’ markets to concerts and sporting events, have requested a commercial barrier that can be towed into place and protect attendees from errant drivers. Using Delta’s Soft Stop technology, the DSC1000 stops such drivers from inflicting harm. With no foundation or electrical hook-up needed, two people can set up and take down the DSC1000 barrier in minutes. The barricade’s self-contained power system provides all the power necessary to raise and lower the unit onto its trailer and open and close the barrier. This battery-powered system re-charges with a solar panel or external means. Controls can be locked or operated at the barricade or remotely. In many cases, the tragedies that the DSC1000 will negate are accidents. Authorities want the vehicle stopped but they also want to avoid injury to the driver as much as possible. Therefore, contrary to the “hard stop” created with anti-terrorist crash-tested barricades, testing of the new DSC1000 demonstrates that the collision did not distort the passenger compartment of the vehicle. Instead, Soft Stop technology decelerates and stops the vehicle over a short distance, technically referred to as “occupant ride down” acceleration. MP5000 battery-powered hydraulic barricade operator Filling the gap between low-duty cycle manually-operated and high-duty cycle systems, the MP5000 incorporates a heavy-duty rechargeable internal battery, charger, solar panel and rechargeable, portable booster battery pack. It provides up to 200 cycles per day of powered operation, up to 40 cycles in a one-hour period on direct battery. On trickle charge, it handles 1,000 cycles a day; perfect for rapidly upgrading manually operated systems. Recharging options for most duty and operating rates are available.

Delta’s new electrically controlled barrier receives P1 rating at ASTM M50 test level
Delta’s new electrically controlled barrier receives P1 rating at ASTM M50 test level

Delta Scientific’s latest HD 300 barrier, is available with either a fully electric or hydraulic control unit, and will stop a 15,000 pound (66.7 Km) vehicle travelling 50 mph (80 kpm). Upon impact, the barrier remains in its foundation and the opening stays blocked, providing a multiple hit capability. In its M50 crash test, the HD300 completely disabled the test vehicle, causing severe damage to the occupant department and power train. The maximum penetration recorded was an outstanding -1.8 m on the passenger’s side. The P1 penetration rating was given because the penetration beyond the protected side of the barrier was less than 1.0 m at the lower leading edge of the test vehicle’s cargo bed. “The HD300 provides many of the flexibilities that security professionals want in a vehicle access barrier,” explains Greg Hamm, Delta Scientific vice president, marketing and sales. “Besides being easy to install and providing a fast emergency fast operation, low maintenance and multiple hit capabilities, customers can select either our new all electric control unit or Delta’s lauded hydraulic control unit.”With its 24-inch (61 cm) shallow foundation and aesthetic design, the HD300 obviates the concerns of interference with buried pipes, power lines and fibre optic communication lines. The shallow foundation also reduces installation complexity, time, materials and corresponding costs. The HD300 is perfect for high water table locations and areas with corrosive soils. It provides low maintenance as all components are accessible from the sides or top of the barrier.For increased security, the HD300 leverages Delta’s propriety counter-balanced technology to provide a 1.5 second emergency fast operation (EFO), responding to attacks very quickly. The electric actuator provides IP67 protection, meaning that the unit is totally protected against dust and as well as the effect of immersion between 15 cm and 1 m.

Delta Scientific HD200 vehicle barrier for high traffic locations
Delta Scientific HD200 vehicle barrier for high traffic locations

The fastest operating standard vehicle barrier in the market, the HD200 features a crash rating of ASTM M30/P1, bringing to a full stop a 7.5 ton (6803.9 kg) medium duty truck traveling 30 mph (48.3 kph) in less than 3.3 feet (1 m). Truck rebound is 11.5 feet (3.5 m).Final denial applications Built for high traffic, heavily populated locations requiring rapid emergency fast operation (EFO) rates and open/close cycles, in high traffic locations, the barrier is open much of the time, letting vehicles through. Therefore, when the location is heavily populated, the barrier must open and close frequently. More importantly, the barrier must be able to close quickly. To negate vehicles being used as weapons, the HD200 barrier will stop and destroy a vehicle moving at 30 mph (48.3 kph). This allows users to install this barrier in final denial applications with as little as 50 feet (15.2m) of stand-off distance and still stop vehicles moving up to 44 feet (13.4 m) per second. Increased safety against terrorists using vehicles as weaponsAs the tragedy in Nice, France, has warned, security professionals need to be aware of vehicle attacks on people. For heavy traffic in densely populated locations, not only must the vehicle barrier be fast but it must be rugged and easy to install.The HD200 provides the features needed in a vehicle access barrier. Besides being easy to install and providing a quick emergency fast operation and low maintenance, customers can select either Delta's new all electric control unit or Delta’s lauded hydraulic control unit. With either, the HD200 barrier will stop a 7.5 ton (6803.9 kg) medium duty truck travelling 30 mph (48.3 kph) in less than 3.3 feet (1 m).With a 24-inch (61 cm) shallow foundation and fully enclosed, flush mount design, the HD200 obviates the concerns of interference with buried pipes, power lines and fibre optic communication lines in urban applications. The shallow foundation also reduces installation complexity, time, materials and corresponding costs. The HD200 is perfect for high water table locations and areas with corrosive soils. It provides low maintenance as its totally enclosed face is easily removed for access. Remotely controlled EFOLeveraging the latest technologies, the HD200’s breakthrough EFO can be remotely controlled via fibre optics, touch screen control panels, NEMA rated control button panels and simple key switches.The HD200 barrier also features a full range of diagnostic indicators for early detection of any difficulties.As with most other Delta barricades and barriers that are properly maintained, projected life expectancy of the HD200 is 20+ years.

Delta’s newest EM-controlled anti-terrorist crash barrier provides less than zero penetration

Delta Scientific, the leading manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, recently announced that its new HD2055 electromechanically controlled anti-terrorist barricade decisively stopped the 15,000 pound (6,803 kg) test vehicle traveling at 51 (82 kph) in a recent crash test conducted by an independent testing laboratory. Less than zero penetration of crash barrier The HD2055 barricades not only stopped the vehicle but contained the test load representing the bombs strapped to the truck bed. The crash test result showed a less than zero penetration. “Significantly, the operating mechanism and cams were all intact and reusable after the dramatic crash test,” emphasises David Dickinson, Senior Vice President of Delta Scientific. “This level of survival is normally only seen with hydraulic barricade systems.” Easy-to-install shallow foundation The new HD2055 barricade features an easy-to-install shallow foundation with an environmentally-friendly electromechanical actuator which utilises a sophisticated cam design that accelerates and de-accelerates the barrier road plate during raising and lowering. This reduces the lifting and closing force down to zero at the end of each stroke, dramatically increasing the life of the lifting mechanism. The shallow foundation also obviates the concerns of interference with buried pipes, power lines and fibre optic communication lines. The HD2055 is perfect for high water table locations and areas with corrosive soils. It provides low maintenance as all components are accessible from the sides or top of the barrier. As with its hydraulic designs, the electromechanical HD2055 can be deployed as a single barricade in a narrow lane application or in extended arrays which cover wide roadways. Each HD2055 barricade can be open or closed individually or as a group to allow the passage of both small or large vehicles. Like other Delta Scientific products, the HD2055 can be remotely controlled via fibre optics, touch screen control panels, NEMA rated control button panels and simple key switches.
