Delta Scientific, the leading manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, recently announced the successful full scale crash test and product release of Delta’s new DSC207s Embassy vehicle barricade system. The new Embassy barricade is a fully enclosed, shallow foundation wedge barricade with covered front and sides. In a full scale crash test conducted by an independent test lab, the DSC207s met the criteria for an M50/K12 rating. A 15,000 pound (6800 kg) truck impacting at 50 mph (80 km/h) was stopped dead in its tracks with zero penetration and no foundation damage. It features a small footprint, a new programmable drive system and is extremely serviceable.

Created to U.S. Department of State specifications, the new DSC207 Embassy barricade combines the best aspects of our original crash-certified barricade developed for embassies, the TT207s, and Delta’s flagship product, the DSC501,” explains Greg Hamm, Delta Scientific vice president of sales and marketing. “These barricades are used in hundreds of embassies and consulates of the United States, the United Kingdom and other nations. With the new DSC207s, they and other organisations can now have a crash-certified barricade that is very undemanding to service.”

The new Embassy barricade provides foundation space in which maintenance personnel can easily work. There is space for heaters and sump pumps. Access is available from either the top plate or front. The barricade can also be galvanised. Its small footprint increases the numbers of locations in which it can be used.

Available with Delta’s new programmable drive system (PDS), the barricade can be electronically powered with an internal limit switch and multiple voltage input. The motor speed control can be programmed to control the barricade so that it operates quickly at first but, at the end of the stroke, slows down so that it does not slam, eliminating wear and noise. Guard operation is with touch screen control via hardwire, networked or fiber optics.

Following the crash test the truck was removed along with the front face and the barricade was powered up and found to be fully operational. No foundation damage, slight bend in the top plate, all ready for the next attack.
