Delta Creates Special State Seal Art for Tops of California Capitol Bollards
Highly Decorative Delta Bollards Will Stop and Destroy Truck Bomber Driving 15,000+ Pound Truck Going 50+ MPH
4 Different Seals Created – State Seal plus One for Each Branch
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PALMDALE, CALIF. – August 8, 2007 – United States and internationally, today announced that it has completed the installation of four highly customized seals that have been added to the tops of Delta’s DSC720 bollards that protect California’s state capitol facilities in Sacramento from truck bomb attacks. The four seals include the Great Seal of the State of California, the Governor’s Seal, the Assembly Seal and the Senate Seal.
“These four intricate seals and the DSC720 bollards they enhance are proof-positive of the architectural integrity that decorative bollards can provide to a security application,” emphasized Delta Scientific Senior Vice President David Dickinson. “Not only do they protect State Capitol employees, visitors and tourists from the threat of truck bombers but they absolutely add to the beauty of the State Capitol grounds.”
The seals were custom made by Delta for the State of California using a combination of laser stereo lithography in tandem with rapid prototyping resin molds and hand-sculpted clay to enhance their elaborate detail. They were then placed on top of Delta decorative DSC720 bollards that were already installed at the entrances to Capitol facilities.
The DSC720 is Delta’s highest crash rated bollard tested with a 15,000 lb vehicle at 50 mph. This K12 bollard will stop and destroy much larger vehicles than those tested at very high velocities. It can be a hydraulic, pneumatic, manual operation or fixed post bollard. Besides the California State Capitol, applications include Federal and DOD facilities, embassies and other high profile, high-risk locations. The DSC720 bollard’s height is 35 inches and its diameter is 12.75 to 13.25 inches. Its speed of operation can be adjusted from 3 to 10 seconds. Bollard arrays of 1 to 6 or more can be packaged.
Delta builds seven broad classes of counter terrorist vehicle barricade systems, including beam barricades, wedge barricades, bollards, sliding gates, shallow foundation high security barricades, surface mounted barricades and portable barricades.
