Delta’s New “Angry” Traffic Controller Has Scary Teeth


VALENCIA, CALIF.—July 9, 2001—Delta Scientific’s new HTTC 45 high threat traffic controller is a hybrid between the Company’s traffic control product line and vehicle barricade systems. When installed, the top plate lies flush with the road surface to allow authorized vehicles to pass. When raised, the barricade presents an aggressive, formidable barrier to halt vehicle access.

“The HTTC 45 is very popular in the Middle East,” reports Delta Scientific Senior Vice President David Dickinson. “It was created for the Kuwaiti Coast Guard facilities and several locations in the United Arab Emirates. Multiple units are used to control main entrances to sensitive facilities. With its success there, we’ve decided to introduce it to the rest of the world.”

In use, the wedge tooth assembly of the HTTC 45 barrier raises above the grade by 450 mm (18 inches). The barriers open in approximately one second when in “emergency fast” mode. Units are available in three and six meter lengths.

The Delta HTTC 45 barriers also use proven Delta hydraulic power systems and controls to raise or lower the barricade to permit passage of authorized vehicles. As with all Delta barricade systems, the HTTC 45 barriers can be operated by means of Delta control panels, card readers, and keypads or radio controls and are readily interfaced with standard access control equipment.
