Delta HD300 barrier

HD300 leverages Delta’s proprietary counter-balanced technology to provide a 1.5 second EFO

Delta Scientific, the leading manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, recently announced that its new HD300 barrier, available with either a fully electric or hydraulic control unit, will stop a 15,000 pound (66.7 Km) vehicle traveling 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 quick 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 proprietary 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 as well as the effect of immersion between 15 cm and 1 m.

The new HD300 is available for order now. Attendees at the ISC West Exposition in Las Vegas will be able to stop in at Delta’s Booth # 17133 to learn more.

What is the role of manufacturers in providing after sales support?

Traditionally, dealer-installers and/or integrators provide the front line of support to end user customers after a sale.

However, manufacturers may be better equipped to deal with specific problems after a sale and also to provide a variety of resources to end-users. It’s a delic...
