Delta Scientific, global manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, has announced that traffic access control professionals can now set up MP5000 portable barriers on concrete, asphalt, compacted soils or vegetation in 15 minutes or less to provide certified M50 stopping power against unauthorised vehicle access.

Original models provide M40 protection while the new MP5000 models stop 15,000 pound (6804 kg) medium-duty trucks traveling at a speed of 50 mph (80.4 kph). 

M50 rated portable barrier system

"Significantly, we are releasing the first M50 rated portable barrier system to the world at a time when military grade portable protection is imperative," emphasises Keith Bobrosky, Delta Scientific senior vice president.

He adds, "With over 2,000 working units in the field over the past decade, this portable barrier has proven its capabilities to clients throughout the world. Especially important to our government customers and select commercial clients, high security professional can now protect assets that have traditionally required an M50 rating with a portable product."

Deployed for international events and military facilities security

The MP5000 is available in 12-, 16- and 20-foot openings. It is easily towed behind a truck or other vehicle to its location where it sets up in less than fifteen minutes. Once it has performed its duty, it is quickly packed up and towed to its next project.

The MP5000 is self-contained and battery powered. It has been seen at G20 meetings, presidential inaugurations, papal parades, international embassies, municipal parades, Mardi Gras, stadiums and other civilian locales from the United States to Australia and is especially popular at forward operating military bases from Afghanistan through the rest of the world.
