DSC650 FIXED BOLLARD MODULES
DSC650 Fixed Bollard Modules Rated PU50/P2
Lift-Out Bollards that can be locked into place.
Delta Scientific’s DSC650 Shallow Foundation Bollard arrays are a downscaled version of the DSC600 arrays. The DSC650 fixed bollard modules will stop a 5000-pound (2300 kg) vehicle going 50 mph (80 kph) while the DSC600 array stops a 15,000-pound (6900 kg) vehicle going the same speed.
The DSC650 module functions as a standalone module or part of an extended array on shallow substrates, including those that are not level or have turns. Two modules are available. The first model provides a choice of having either one or two of the bollards being removable, to let vehicles through, and lockable so they cannot be removed by unauthorized people. The second is a corner module of 90 degrees featuring three bollards. Both versions are available with Delta standard or custom decorative cast aluminum or fiberglass coverings.
For easy installation, their foundation is only 12 inches (30.4 cm) deep. The DSC650 is also supplied with steel reinforcing mesh welded in place so that no additional rebar is needed.
The new DSC650 bollard modules were tested in accordance with ASTM Designation F 2656-07 Standard Test Method for Vehicle Crash Testing of Perimeter Barriers – August 1, 2007 with a rating of PU50/P1 with a 5,070 pound (2300 kg) truck traveling 50 mph (80 kph). The certified dynamic and final penetrations were less than 1 meter. As a result, the DSC650 successfully meets the U.S. Department of State Specification, Revision A that requires the bed of the attacking truck to go less than 39 inches (1 m) beyond the point of impact.
The DSC650 Shallow Foundation Bollards are also perfect for high water table locations and areas with corrosive soils. The shallow foundation obviates the concerns of interference with buried water, gas and fuel pipes, storm drains, power lines and fiber optic communication lines. This foundation also reduces installation complexity, time, materials and corresponding costs.
