Delta Scientific, a manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, has announced that its new patent pending crash rated TB100 portable bollard system will let law enforcement and other security providers promptly block access to temporary venues where vehicles can be used as weapons against large numbers of pedestrians.

Individual portable bollards provide vehicle barricades in applications such as heavily travelled narrow walkways and roadways or any area that a vehicle can get through. They can also be used as substitutes until permanent bollard systems get installed.

TB100 portable bollards

Up to five TB100 portable bollards can be linked together with a cable system and be placed on a road's surface to create immediate protection for a span of 20 feet (6 m). No other installation procedures, excavations or sub-surface preparations are required.

Certified testing demonstrates that a TB100 portable bollard system will stop and disable a 15,000 pound (6,804 kg) vehicle traveling at 30 mph (48.3 kph), resulting in an ASTM M30, P3 rating. A single TB100 bollard absorbs 400,000 foot pounds of kinetic energy.

The barriers can protect people at public events
such as parades, festivals
and sporting weekends

"This is a remarkable result for a light-weight portable bollard system that requires no excavation or attachment to the roadway," emphasises David Dickinson, senior vice president of Delta Scientific. "It can be placed on any stable surface such as concrete, asphalt, compacted soil or vegetation to quickly protect people and property against aggravated automobile or truck assault."

Public event safety

According to Dickinson, the TB100 temporary bollards can be used to close off streets, entrances or wide expanses such as access to pedestrian areas or even airport runways.

They can be installed in conjunction with Delta's popular MP5000 portable barricade to fill in any gaps to protect people and critical infrastructures at public events such as parades, festivals, sporting weekends and any place that vehicles could attack transitory events. The combination of the portable barriers with the new portable bollards provides fast controlled vehicle access without the time and labour of installation.

"From a purchasing standpoint, it can be easier to buy portable bollards and barricades than permanent solutions," adds Dickinson. "The latter are oftentimes placed into an organisation's real assets budget because they are permanently installed into the ground, becoming part of the property. Such budgets can often create complex purchasing scenarios for law enforcement or public safety departments. However, purchasing portable bollards and barricades is no different than buying protective vests for personnel or new sets of wrenches for the maintenance department."
