Portable Barriers for Vehicle Security Control
Begin installation in the morning, have protection by lunch.
First used successfully to protect NATO troops in Kosovo and elsewhere, Delta Scientific’s quick deployment, modular portable barrier solutions can be rapidly set up on existing concrete or asphalt roads, level compacted soils and other hard surfaces. No excavation or sub-surface preparation is required.
Delta’s portable barriers are used around the world. The Social Security Administration temporarily used them to secure its headquarters while permanent Delta stainless steel bollards were being installed. The U.S. Department of State uses them to protect embassies in locations where permanent barricades are not feasible.
Very easy to implement
Since the unfilled buttresses, or pods, weigh less than 700 pounds (318 kg), they and the other modular sections are easily moved with a small forklift, pallet jack or handcart. Forklift slots facilitate moving and positioning of the pods. Assembled and interlocked with quick lock-unlock pins in only two hours, the buttresses are then filled with concrete.
These hydraulic units operate manually or with locally supplied power or batteries. These portable barriers can be controlled automatically or via remote control using hardwired or RF links, card readers, key switches, local guard pushbutton stations or any combination. They can be sized to provide pass-through rates suitable for most inspection and identification station requirements.
Towable barricades answer the need of Delta clients that require a temporary barricade system to address a specific threat or secure a facility during special events.
Built at the request of U.S. Federal Government Force Protection Specialists for initial fast deployment use in Iraq and elsewhere, the totally self-contained MP5000 is towed into position and controls vehicle access within 15 minutes. Once positioned, the mobile barricade unpacks itself by using hydraulics to raise and lower itself off its wheels. The MP5000 is a K4 rated barricade.
The first commercial version of the MP5000, the DSC1000, uses the company’s “Soft Stop” technology. Light enough to be towed by a golf cart and set up in only 10 minutes, the new DSC1000 portable barrier has already passed an ASTM crash test in which it stopped a 5,000-pound (2300 kg) vehicle going 40 mph (64kph), providing it with an ASTM rating of P50. With no foundation or electrical hook-up needed, two people can set up and take down the DSC1000 in ten minutes.
