Petrochemicals

Companies such as Chevron, ExxonMobile, Conoco, BP, Shell and others employ Delta barricades, bollards and crash gates to protect their petrochemical and hydrocarbon refineries, facilities, distribution centres and storage areas. Vehicles not authorised can't get through.

These barriers will stop and destroy a truck weighing up to 30,000 pounds and traveling at 50 mph. They can be raised or lowered at will to stop traffic or let it through. In an emergency, the thick steel plates pop out of the ground within 1.5 seconds. When integrated properly into a total system, including fences, lights, alarms, gates, and other security components, vehicle barriers are a key measure in preventing threats to sensitive resources.

Protecting your perimeters is no small responsibility. Knowing you've got the right equipment in place to secure the facility and to prevent human tragedy brings a peace of mind that no amount of money can buy. Carefully researching available options and consulting with experts will ultimately lead to the right solution.

Public water supply and controls - delta

Public water supply and controls

Leading public water supply and control districts, including the Federal Bureau of Reclamation, the Tennessee Valley Authority and major utilities, employ Delta barricades, bollards and crash gates to protect dams, canals, treatment plants and other infrastructure facilities. Vehicles not authorized just can’t get through.

A favoured barricade for water district properties, because of their many remote locations, is the Delta DSC501RL (Remote Locations) Very High Security Shallow Foundation Barrier that incorporates a special locking system that prevents terrorists from disabling or dismantling it. The harder a terrorist works at attempting to immobilise this barrier to get a vehicle through, the tighter the unit actually locks up. In such locations, it is kept in the “up” position.

 
Transportation Hubs - delta

Transportation hubs

Leading transportation hubs, including Los Angeles and San Francisco International Airports among many other airports, the Union Pacific Railroad and many other transportation centres employ Delta barricades, bollards and crash gates to protect passengers, employees, property and other transportation infrastructure facilities. Vehicles not authorised just can’t get through.

At transportation hubs, multiple Delta products are deployed in a variety of manners. To protect rental automobiles at lots adjoining Dallas/Fort Worth Airport, 50 Delta vehicle access control systems, including motorised traffic controllers, warning signs and traffic and surface mounted controllers, are used. Delta bullet resistant level 4 booths are installed for California’s Ontario Airport. At sister LAX, crash gates protect the tarmac.

To host 3 million cars per year, the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport has 18 Delta parking/cashier booths handling its parking capacity of 13,000 spaces. To architecturally complement the parking structure, the Delta booths feature rounded corners and custom paint design. To guard against the Minnesota winters, each booth features two heaters and double insulation. Glass is tinted to eliminate sun glare.

When integrated properly into a total system, including fences, lights, alarms, gates, and other security components, Delta vehicle control equipment, including anti-terrorist barriers, are a key measure in preventing threats.

Protecting your perimeters is no small responsibility. Knowing you've got the right equipment in place to secure the facility and to prevent human tragedy brings a peace of mind that no amount of money can buy. Carefully researching available options and consulting with experts will ultimately lead to the right solution.

Ports - delta

Ports

Leading public water supply and control districts, including the Port of Sydney Harbour, Pearl Harbor and others, employ Delta barricades, bollards and crash gates to protect passengers, employees, cargo and infrastructure facilities. Vehicles not authorised just can’t get through.

The Port of Sydney Harbour installed Delta’s K54 DCS501 anti-terrorist barriers to protect their international cruise ship terminal. The barriers prevent speeding vehicles from getting past the guard post at the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay, where about 90 vessels dock during the busy summer months. Nearly 160,000 passengers come through the Port, representing a major facet of Australia's tourism industry.

Delta’s automated, linear gates protect vulnerable piers at Naval Station Pearl Harbor in Hawaii. The automated gates at the Navy piers create a protective barrier between terrorists and in-port assets. According to Andrew Luvale, Anti-terrorism Director, Navy Region Hawaii, "Product support is vital because these piers are the lifelines to the ships." "Delta always resolves issues in a timely manner. We know that if we call their product support director any time of the day or night, we're going to get the help we need. That's a proven track record that is rarely found nowadays."

When integrated properly into a total system, including fences, lights, alarms, gates, and other security components, vehicle barriers are a key measure in preventing threats to sensitive resources.

Protecting your perimeters is no small responsibility. Knowing you've got the right equipment in place to secure the facility and to prevent human tragedy brings a peace of mind that no amount of money can buy.

2017 security trends: Lone wolf terror encourages vehicle access control system installations

With the changing “lone wolf” style of terrorism, there will be a trend toward many more installations of vehicle access control systems and smaller numbers of units. Where a university, military base or airport might have 20-plus systems scattered among its grounds, there will be a growing number of smaller applications needing one, two or three systems. These will include customers such as primary and secondary education facilities; pedestrian locations such as shopping centres,...
