Delta Scientific Corporation

Delta Scientific, the manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, announced that, on March 7, over 70 leading security specialists met at Delta Scientific headquarters to discuss the state of the vehicle access control market in North America.

These security specialists came together to view anti-terrorism portable systems, barriers, bollards, crash-rated gates and other solutions and how each product fits in a comprehensive vehicle access system.

 SAFETY Act minimises insurance risks

The vehicle access control budget is actually being buttressed by the new certification of the SAFETY Act of 2002""Budgets remain high for vehicle access," relates Greg Hamm, Delta vice president of sales and marketing. "The Defense Department continues to fund large scale vehicle access projects. Although border wall projects may impact spending at the Department of Homeland Security, its vehicle access control budget is actually being buttressed by the new certification of the Support Anti-terrorism by Fostering Effective Technology (SAFETY Act) of 2002."

This certification minimises insurance risks for organisations that deploy authorised Delta vehicle access control products to protect against terrorists and errant drivers. All products certified are covered retroactively back to 1984 and are now authorised to carry the SAFETY Act Designated mark.

 Backing of the DHS

"By minimising insurance risks to deploying authorised Delta vehicle access systems, this certification lets customers feel comfortable knowing that they have the full faith and backing of the Department of Homeland Security," emphasizes Hamm.

Delta Scientific secures over 110 Federal buildings, including the Pentagon, U.S. Supreme Court, Federal courthouses and FBI locations

"As the only manufacturer having such certification for wedge barriers, beam barriers and crash gates, this announcement is encouraging commercial organisations to more fully explore using such life-saving products in their anti-terrorist and safety vehicle access solutions."

Attendees were also able to analyse the security options of Delta's full line of portable, towable bollards plus wedge, swing arm and newly introduced beam barricades.

Securing government buildings worldwide 

In the United States alone, Delta Scientific secures over 110 Federal buildings, including the Pentagon, U.S. Supreme Court, Federal courthouses and FBI locations. Delta also provides vehicle access control for over 200 U.S. embassies and consulates in 130-plus countries, including State Department headquarters, as well as those of the United Kingdom and other nations.

In addition, Delta Scientific vehicle access control equipment protects high profile corporate headquarters, logistic sites that store and ship vital materials, transportation hubs and even the private residences of powerful, influential people.
