Delta Scientific Barriers Meet New U.S. Army Standardss
4 Army Bases Order Standardized Barriers
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
VALENCIA, CALIF. – September 8, 2005 – Delta Scientific, the leading manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, today announced that its barriers meet the new U.S. Army Standard for Access Control Points (ACP). This standard is mandatory for operations and maintenance projects commencing in 2006 and beyond and for all projects starting in 2008 and beyond.
As a result, Delta has already obtained orders from Ft. Drum, Ft. Dietrich, Ft. Belvoir and the Aberdeen Proving Ground.
The military has always been a key customer of Delta Scientific. Delta has previously had its bollards and barriers installed in the great majority of U.S. Navy bases abroad and domestically. The U.S. Air Force has ordered over 540 Delta DSC501 barriers. With its estimated $25 million order, the largest contract for barricades ever, the U.S. Air Force is deploying very high security barriers at its facilities around the globe.
One of the most important aspects of the Standard is “active vehicle barriers are an essential element in preventing unauthorized motorists from entering Army Installations. However, an active vehicle barrier capable of stopping large, moving vehicles can cause significant damage to vehicles and can cause injury or even death to vehicle occupants. Through Army policy and design criteria, ACP designs must include adequate safety features to ensure the safety of motorists entering and exiting the ACP.”
