FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PALMDALE, CALIF. – May 30, 2008 – Delta Scientific, the leading manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, today announced that its DSC7500 swing beam barricade, designed to close off one or two lanes of a roadway and provide counter terrorist level protection against vehicle attack, has been tested in the United Kingdom to stop a 7,500 kg (16,500 pound) 2-axle European truck traveling 80 kph (50 mph), meeting the BSI standard PAS:68 2007, which tests barricades to a standard most similar to the U.S. State Department’s K12 rating.
“The DSC7500 uses its latest in crash beam technology,” relates Delta Scientific Senior Vice President David Dickinson. “This swing beam barrier has been tested and certified in both the United Kingdom and the United States to stop truck bomb attackers dead in their tracks right at the barricade. The DSC7500 is being used worldwide, primarily at locations where roadways need to be secured from attacking vehicles.”
The DSC7500 is supplied as an easy to use manual gate or powered with full automation features. Other versions of the DSC7500 Series include a full swing gate with anti-climb features that can replace existing non-rated swing gates.
