Many customers are concerned whether their vehicle access equipment is up to the latest standards
Delta experts will also review any Delta products to find out if they are in need of parts or servicing

Delta Scientific, a manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, has announced that, from June 1st until September 30th, 2016, it will provide "Free Barrier Compliance Analysis" to users of any Delta bollard, barrier, barricade or crash gate, no matter when installed. Recently, Delta has noted that, after years of use providing access to thousands of authorised cars entering restricted areas, many customers are concerned whether their vehicle access equipment is up to the latest standards. Delta can provide a comprehensive compliance analysis at the request of the customer.

Spare parts and servicing

"In addition, the expert will also review any Delta products to find out if they are in need of parts or servicing," assures Greg Hamm, Delta Scientific vice president of sales and marketing. "As many customers know, we provide spare parts and servicing directly from Delta in an effort to assure that Delta products have the most current access control technology and safety features and continue to meet the crash rating certification for which they were bought. Only in that way can we assure that the device meets the compliance today that it met on the day it was installed."

New safety features

Greg adds that there are many reasons that such an audit makes sense. In many cases, systems that have been neglected due to lack of maintenance funding should be evaluated. With some units in the ground as many as 30+ years, it is simply prudent to have the equipment inspected. In other cases, the Military Sequence of Events requirement has changed. For instance, the Air Force upgrade for programmable logic controllers (PLCs) calls for new safety features. Many sites are looking to upgrade controls to touch screen technology.

"Customers can and should call for tech support even if their systems are out of warranty," Hamm adds.
