Able to be deployed or relocated for full manual or automatic operation within two hours, Delta Scientific’s quick deployment Series IP500 Barrier will stop and destroy a 15,000 pound (6,800 kg) truck traveling at 30 mph (48 km/h) in less than 20 feet (6 m). It secures an entrance roadway 8 to15 feet in width from vehicle attack. Hydraulic and manual versions are available. It is filled with cement once it is in place. The barricade is movable and reusable.
“We have a great need for easy to install, temporary, drop-arm beam barriers to block entrances to embassies or roads to embassies where we don’t have setbacks,” emphasized Dusty Rhodes who is part of the certification team from the U. S. State Department. He continued, “With this type of barrier, we don’t need to dig up streets.”
According to Jerry Edwards, U.S. Army R & D Deputy Product Manager, Physical Security Equipment “This type of barrier provides a new element in force protection both in the U.S. and overseas. It’s especially relevant for threat conditions in the military, such as in Kosovo, where there are a series of force protection issues. Having an increased level of security, when moving from locale to locale, is a big advantage.”
