Delta Scientific Corporation

Delta Scientific, a manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, announced that government officials and security professionals in the Birmingham, Alabama, area can see demonstrations of Delta's wide line of anti-terrorism vehicle barriers, bollards, crash-rated gates and other equipment, including new products, on November 2 from 10 am to 4 pm at Regions Field Stadium in Birmingham.

Multiple security vendors will be showcasing live demonstrations and new technologies.

HD2000 barrier

"Whenever we have hosted such security equipment demonstrations, integrators and contractors have come together and visited an average of three to four hours," relates Keith Bobrosky, Delta Scientific Vice President of Sales. "At our most recent exhibition, we had over 150 attendees. We expect an even larger crowd at the Birmingham event."

Among the products on display
will be the new HD200 barrier
which was built for high traffic
locations requiring rapid
emergency fast operation

Among the products on display will be the new HD200 barrier which was built for high traffic locations requiring rapid emergency fast operation (EFO) rates and open/close cycles. With a 0.63 second EFO and a 2-5 second normal operation rate, the HD200 is the fastest operating standard vehicle barrier in the market. In addition, it features a crash rating of ASTM M30/P1. That means it will bring to a full stop a 7.5-ton medium duty truck travelling 30 mph in less than 3.3 feet.

New products

New products include high strength coating by Line-X, touch-screen controls and the recently introduced HD2050 electric finger wedge barrier which decisively stopped a 15,000-pound (6,803 kg) test vehicle traveling at 51 mph (82 kph) in a recent crash test conducted by an independent testing laboratory. The HD2055 barricades not only stopped the vehicle but contained the test load representing the bombs strapped to the truck bed. The crash test result showed a less than zero penetration.

Delta Scientific recently made the news when it was publicised that Delta MP5000 mobile deployable vehicle crash barriers helped police and security personnel protect delegates to both the Republican and Democratic National Conventions.

"We've already received commitments from general contractors, security integrators and government decision makers to attend the Birmingham Demonstrations so great networking opportunities will be available," adds Bobrosky.
