PALMDALE, CALIF. – January 19, 2016 – Delta Scientific, the leading manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, today announced that government officials and security professionals in the Washington, DC and Dallas areas can see demonstrations of Delta’s wide line of anti-terrorism vehicle barriers, bollards, crash-rated gates and other equipment, including new products, on May 5 from 9 am to 4 pm at Delta's Product Support Division at 125 Wyatt Lane in Fredericksburg, Va. and on May 18 from 8:00 am to 4 pm at Texas Motor Speedway at 3545 Lone Star Circle in Fort Worth. Maintenance training and live reliability testing will also take place on-site during the free admission Delta Equipment Demonstrations Events.
"Last year, over 100 security professionals, integrators and contractors came together at our Palmdale, Calif. home office and manufacturing plant for our Delta Equipment Demonstrations and visited an average of three to four hours apiece," relates Keith Bobrosky, Delta Scientific sales manager. "Since we'll be exhibiting at ISC West in Las Vegas in early April, it made sense to bring the Equipment Demonstrations to the Washington and Dallas areas this year. When we held it in the DC area previously, we had over 150 attendees. We expect a similar sized crowd at the inaugural Texas event."
Among the products on display will be the HD300 barrier available with either a fully electric or hydraulic control unit, that will stop a 15,000 pound (66.7 Km) vehicle traveling 50 mph (80 kpm) and recently met the criteria of the United States Department of State for continuous operations of 1 million cycles. Upon impact, the barrier remains in its foundation and the opening stays blocked, providing a multiple hit capability.
New products include high strength coating by Line-X, touch-screen controls and the recently introduced HD2050 electric finger wedge barrier which decisively stopped a 15,000 pound (6,803 kg) test vehicle traveling at 51 mph (82 kph) in a recent crash test conducted by an independent testing laboratory. The HD2055 barricades not only stopped the vehicle but contained the test load representing the bombs strapped to the truck bed. The crash test result showed a less than zero penetration.
Delta Scientific recently made the news when it was publicized that 18 Delta MP5000 mobile deployable vehicle crash barriers helped police and security personnel protect Pope Francis from vehicle bomb attack and errant drivers as he traveled to various venues in Washington, D.C., Philadelphia and New York on his trip to the United States last year.
“We’ve already received commitments from general contractors, security integrators and government decision makers to attend the May Equipment Demonstrations so great networking opportunities will be available,” adds Bobrosky.Admission to both events is free and both will be catered. To attend either of the Delta Trade Show Equipment Demonstrations, security administrators and officials should RSVP Delta Scientific at 661-575-1100 or contact their Delta Scientific representative. Those going to the DC demonstration can also email firstname.lastname@example.org while Texas attendees should email email@example.com.
