Delta Scientific Corporation

Delta Scientific, the manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, announced that its new patented crash rated TB150 portable bollard system lets law enforcement and other security providers promptly block access to temporary venues where vehicles can be used as weapons against large numbers of pedestrians.

Individual portable bollards provide vehicle barricades in applications such as heavily travelled walkways and roadways or any area that a vehicle can get through. They can also be used as substitutes until permanent bollard systems get installed.

Capable of stopping 15,000 pound vehicle

Certified testing demonstrates that a TB150 portable bollard will stop and disable a 15,000 pound vehicle travelling at 50 mphTen TB150 portable bollards can be linked together with a cable system and placed on a road's surface to create immediate protection for a span of 40 feet (12.2 m). No other installation procedures, excavations or sub-surface preparations are required. Certified testing demonstrates that a TB150 portable bollard will stop and disable a 15,000 pound (6,804 kg) vehicle travelling at 50 mph (80.4 kph), resulting in an ASTM M50, P3 rating.

"Being able to stop a massive, high speed attack vehicle is imperative to protecting crowds enjoying venues such as malls, theme parks and public fairs," emphasises David Dickinson, president of Delta Scientific.

"The TB150 marks a new standard in crowd protection containing and stopping 1.2 million foot pounds of attacking truck. The portable bollard array requires no foundation or site preparation and can be used for permanent or temporary vehicle control. The bollards can be set up on any stable surface such as concrete, asphalt, compacted soil or vegetation."

Protecting people and critical infrastructures

The combination of the portable barriers with the new portable bollards provides fast controlled vehicle accessAccording to Dickinson, the TB150 temporary bollards can be used to close off streets, entrances or wide expanses such as access to pedestrian areas or even airport runways. They can be installed in conjunction with Delta's popular MP5000 portable barricade to fill in any gaps to protect people and critical infrastructures at public events such as parades, festivals, sporting weekends and any place that vehicles could attack transitory events. The combination of the portable barriers with the new portable bollards provides fast controlled vehicle access without the time and labour of installation.

"From a purchasing standpoint, it can be easier to buy portable bollards and barricades than permanent solutions," adds Dickinson. "The latter are oftentimes placed into an organisation's real assets budget because they are permanently installed into the ground, becoming a part of the property. Such budgets can often create complex purchasing scenarios for law enforcement or public safety departments. However, purchasing portable bollards and barricades is no different than buying protective vests for personnel or new sets of wrenches for the maintenance department."

What is the role of manufacturers in providing after sales support?

However, manufacturers may be better equipped to deal with specific problems after a sale and also to provide a variety of resources to end-users. It’s a delic...
