CALIF. - July 21, 2009 - Delta Scientific, the leading manufacturer of counter-terrorist
vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, today
announced a less costly, counter balanced electromechanical version of its highly
successful DSC2000 crash-rated, anti-terrorist vehicle control barricade system
to help protect soft targets, such as hotels, throughout the world. The new
DSC2000EM3 provides an extremely fast 1.5-second emergency fast time and normal
operating speed of five to 12 seconds. Each module is individually counter balanced
and can be raised manually with one hand. The barricade's power unit simply
plugs into a standard 120v/15A wall socket. One, two, three or four modules
can be powered with a single self contained motor drive.
well-received presentation at the Overseas Advisory Council of the U.S. State
Department, which included representatives from major hotel chains, the DSC2000EM3
was proposed as a vehicle control solution for soft targets throughout the world
that can be susceptible to car and truck bombings," reports David Dickinson,
Delta Scientific senior vice president. "These locales need the protection
of a barricade like our highly popular DSC2000 but without the cost of its more
complex hydraulic and pneumatic operation. Hotels and other soft targets can
now use the electro-mechanical DSC2000EM3 and still be assured that their barricade
will pop up to protect them in an unusually fast 1.5 seconds."
high speed, high security, very shallow foundation barricade is Delta's fastest,
smallest and shallowest foundation barricade and was created especially for
high speed applications and ease of installation. It is K12 crash certified
with no penetration, meaning it will stop a 15,000 pound (66.7 kN) vehicle traveling
50 mph (80 kph) dead in its tracks. Set in a foundation only ten inches (25
cm) deep versus the standard 18 inches (45 cm) on most shallow foundation barriers,
the Delta DSC2000 survived and operated after a crash test with a 1.5 million
foot pound impact, exceeding Department of State and Department of Defense test
standards. The DSC 2000 has also been tested to the United Kingdom BSI Standard
PAS:68 2007 crash test with a 7.5 Tonne EU truck at 80 kph.
module weighs only 1100 pounds (500 kg) and is easy to install, the DSC2000
barricade is perfect for remote locations and developing country installations.
For ease of shipping, the complete barricade system, including the hydraulic
power unit, control circuits and controls, fits on two 4 ft. x 6 ft. pallets
that can be easily handled by a lightweight yard fork lift or pallet jack. It
fits in a small shipping package or air cargo container for convenient air transport.
Modules can even be carried in the back of a pick-up truck. The barricade modules
can be manhandled into place and installed without the use of power equipment.
can be deployed in configurations to guard wide roadways to narrow driveways.
Designed for heavy use, the DSC2000 produces more than 100,000 cycles per month
with axle loading greater than 22,000 pounds. With the hydraulic option, the
operator can hit the emergency fast button and an array of three or more DSC
2000 barricades will pop up in less than 0.4 seconds. These barricades can be
operated as a single barricade in a narrow road or an array of 10 or more.
barricade with the electro-mechanical option (DSC2000EM3) is now available.
