The HD2055 barricades not only stopped the vehicle but contained the test load representing the bombs strapped to the truck bed
The new HD2055 anti-terrorist barricade was able to stop a 15,000 pound (6,803 kg) test vehicle traveling at 51 mph

Delta Scientific, the leading manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, recently announced that its new HD2055 electromechanically controlled anti-terrorist barricade 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. 

Hydraulic design

"Significantly, the operating mechanism and cams were all intact and reusable after the dramatic crash test," emphasises David Dickinson, Senior Vice President of Delta Scientific. "This level of survival is normally only seen with hydraulic barricade systems."

The new HD2055 barricade features an easy-to-install shallow foundation with an environmentally-friendly electromechanical actuator which utilises a sophisticated cam design that accelerates and de-accelerates the barrier road plate during raising and lowering. This reduces the lifting and closing force down to zero at the end of each stroke, dramatically increasing the life of the lifting mechanism.

The shallow foundation also obviates the concerns of interference with buried pipes, power lines and fiber optic communication lines. The HD2055 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.

Features

As with its hydraulic designs, the electromechanical HD2055 can be deployed as a single barricade in a narrow lane application or in extended arrays which cover wide roadways. Each HD2055 barricade can be open or closed individually or as a group to allow the passage of both small or large vehicles.

Like other Delta Scientific products, the HD2055 can be remotely controlled via fibre optics, touch screen control panels, NEMA rated control button panels and simple key switches.

The new HD2055 is available for order now. Attendees at the ISC West Exposition in Las Vegas will be able to stop in at Delta's Booth # 21134 to learn more.

The threats of vehicular violence are still present even though collisions have become less frequent and traffic, in general, is at a significant low. Preparing for such instances remains a high priority, and institutions are seeking to take a preemptive stance to prevent major incidents before the...

Delta's new Open Frame Vehicle Barrier

The DSC550 was tested to the new ASTM F2656-20 standard which measures the penetration level from the foremost edge of the barrier versus the back-side of the barrier like the previous standard. This can provide a difference of (1.52 m.) and makes the negative penetration level even more impressive. Design and features The DSC550 open frame barrier features a shallow foundation of only 24 inches (61 cm). The open-frame design additionally provides a unique counter-balance design with no spring...
