Vehicle Barricade - Delta Scientific - Facility Management Product Release


Vehicle Barricade: Delta Scientific

Delta Scientific
website | Company information


Delta Scientific’s DSC 1000 is a self-contained barricade that is stored and towed on its own trailer.

The portable barrier passed an ASTM crash test in which it stopped a 5,000-pound vehicle going 50 mph, providing it with an ASTM rating of P50. The device requires no foundation or electrical hook-up. Two people can set up and take down the barrier in minutes. The barricade's self-contained power system provides all the power necessary to raise and lower the unit onto its trailer and open and close the barrier. This battery-powered system re-charges with a solar panel or external means. Controls can be locked or operated at the barricade or remotely.

Contrary to the "hard stop" wanted with anti-terrorist crash-tested barricades, testing of the DSC 1000 demonstrated that the collision did not distort the passenger compartment of the vehicle. Instead the company’s technology decelerates and stops the vehicle over a short distance.
