Delta Scientific Corporation

Delta Scientific, a manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, announced that its newest vehicle access control barrier, the breakthrough HD200, 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 (6803.9 kg) medium duty truck travelling 30 mph (48.3 kph) in less than 3.3 feet (1 meter). In fact, the truck rebound after impacting the barrier was an incredible 11.5 feet.

High speed open/close rate

"The HD200 is truly a breakthrough vehicle barrier," explains Greg Hamm, Delta Scientific Vice President, Marketing and Sales. "A vehicle moving at 30 mph will travel 44 feet per second. With a 0.63 second EFO speed, if triggered within 50 feet of the barrier, it will still stop and destroy the attacking vehicle. As the tragedy in Nice has warned so many security professionals, we need to be aware of vehicle attacks. Especially in high traffic locations, we need high speed open/close rates to get the many vehicles in and out.  Likewise, in densely occupied locations, we need very fast closing rates to protect the people. In high volume locations, the barrier is open much of the time. Therefore, when the location is heavily populated as well, we need the barrier to open and close frequently but, as importantly, close quickly."

Shallow foundation

“When the location is heavily populated, we need the barrier to open and close frequently but, as importantly, close quickly”

With a 24-inch (61 cm) shallow foundation and fully enclosed, flush mount design, the HD200 obviates the concerns of interference with buried pipes, power lines, and fibre optic communication lines in urban applications. The shallow foundation also reduces installation complexity, time, materials, and corresponding costs. The HD200 is perfect for high water table locations and areas with corrosive soils. It provides low maintenance as its totally enclosed face is easily removed for access.

Remote control

Leveraging the latest technologies, the HD200's breakthrough EFO can be remotely controlled via fibre optics, touch screen control panels, NEMA rated control button panels, and simple key switches. The HD200 barrier also features a full range of diagnostic indicators for early detection of any difficulties.

As with most other Delta barricades and barriers that are properly maintained, projected life expectancy of the HD200 is 20 plus years.
