Delta Scientific DSC501 barricade meets UK’s BSI Standard PAS:68 2007 crash test

Product Profile

Delta DSC 501 is a major breakthrough in high duty, anti-terrorist barricades. The only K54-certified vehicle barricade in the world, the Delta DSC501 will survive and operate after a 5.4 million foot pound impact, equivalent to a 29,484 kg (65,000-pound) truck hitting it at 80 kph (50 mph). Stopping the truck dead in its tracks, the DSC501 protects against a “second hit” risk from a second vehicle. It obviates the concerns of interference with buried pipes, power lines and fibre optic communication lines. The shallow foundation also reduces installation complexity, time, materials and corresponding costs. The DSC501 is suitable for high water table locations and areas with corrosive soils. Front face warning lights warn drivers that the barricade is in the “up” position. There is also an open area on the front for signage. Diagonal yellow and white stripes are standard and optional colours and graphics are available. The open channel construction even lets you specify hot dip galvanising. This barricade was designed for the U.S. Navy and has also been selected for use at U.S. Embassies.

Additional info DSC501 is an advanced counter-terrorism wedge barrier system for sub-surface conditions that negate extensive excavations. With its shallow foundation and aesthetic design, it is a major breakthrough in high duty, anti-terrorist barricades. It obviates the concerns of interference with buried pipes, power lines and fibre optic communication lines. This barricade was designed for the U.S. Navy and has also been selected for use at U.S. Embassies. Set in a foundation only 18 inches (46 cm) deep, the Delta DSC501 is able to survive and operate after a 1.2 million foot pound impact. Upon extracting the truck after its crash test, the barricade was fully functional and performed a resounding 27,000 cycles with no wear. In the United Kingdom, the DSC501 high security barricade has also been tested to stop a 7,500 kg (16,500 pound) vehicle traveling 80 kph (50 mph), meeting the BSI standard PAS:68 2007.
