Delta’s New Designer Bollards Protect Residential Properties and their Aesthetics

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

VALENCIA, CALIF. — November 30, 2001 — Within days of being introduced, residential security consultants and architects began ordering Delta Scientific’s new architecturally-enhanced bollard systems. They are already protecting the private homes of celebrities and influential people in Beverly Hills and other upscale communities.

“Now, with these decorative bollards, the first line of security will accent and enhance the look of the property,” emphasizes David Dickinson, Delta Scientific senior vice president. “Architects and security consultants can create any look they want, from fluted and tapered to various colors to adding rings and ripples. The bollards will blend with the rest of the architecture and façade of their private residence.”

Architects, consultants and homeowners can specify having ornamental steel trim attached directly to the 35-inch (89cm) bollard or select decorative cast sleeves in a variety of castings or their own designs made of aluminum, iron or bronze. These sleeves slip right over the crash tube. Using the cast sleeve, project architects are virtually unlimited in styles and aesthetics. If damaged, the old sleeve is simply slipped off and a new sleeve slipped on. Bollards can be galvanized for corrosion resistance or filled with an internal warning light for increased visibility.

The three levels of Delta designer bollards are based on U.S. State Department certifications for providing crash protection of 15,000 pound (66.7 kN) vehicles traveling at 30, 40 or 50 mph (52 ,70 or 80 kph).

As with other Delta barrier systems, the new decorative designer bollards use proven Delta hydraulic power systems and controls to raise or lower the bollards to permit passage of authorized vehicles. The bollard system can be operated by means of Delta control panels, card readers, and keypads or radio controls.

The new architecturally-enhanced bollard systems are available now.
