that not only can their popular crash gates withstand impacts as high as a 15,000
lb (66.7 kN) vehicle striking at 50 MPH (80 KPH) and suffer no significant damage,
but they can look good too. Now, architects and contractors can choose from

provide other looks beyond slats and bars," reports David Dickinson, Delta
Scientific senior vice president. "Now, safety engineers can meet their
security and aesthetic requirements with gates that have been tested in the
field and trials for more than 25 years. In addition to 14 different decors,
Delta gates are available with a variety of options to suit each installation."
The crash rated gates are
powered by either electro-mechanical or hydraulic systems. Typical drive speeds
are 60 ft (18.3 m) per minute, depending on electrical supply and gate length.
Supplied Delta controls meet all requirements for control and safety. Standard
gate measurements are 108 inches (2.74m) from the road surface to the top of
the gate frame and 144 inches (3.65m) in length. Clear openings of up to 30
feet (10 m) can be specified.
All Delta gates are available
in the Designer Series including the highest security TT280 slide gate, high
security TT300 rolling pedestrian gate, SGC1000 manual crash rated swing gate
