Delta’s DSC501 Stops Unauthorized Vehicle at FBI Building

DSC501 Wedge Barrier FBI Crash Protection  Delta Scientific Corporation


PALMDALE, CALIF. – April 2, 2024Delta Scientific, the leading manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used globally, today announced that on Monday, April 1st, a DSC501 High Security Barricade stopped an unauthorized vehicle from entering an FBI field facility in Atlanta, Georgia. According to officials, the orange Buick Encore tried to follow an FBI employee’s car into the facility before being stopped by the Delta DSC501 barrier.  The driver was then apprehended by special agents that were in the immediate area.

“Delta has a long history of thwarting attempts by unauthorized vehicles trying to enter facilities where they could potentially cause serious harm to civilians and structures”, states Greg Hamm, Delta Vice President of Sales and Marketing.  “We are extremely proud to celebrate our 50th anniversary this year protecting the world’s most important institutions.  The strength and reliability of Delta barriers is unrivaled”.

The DSC501’s protecting the FBI field office are the strongest in the world.  On June 27th, 2006, the DSC501 was tested to the most extreme parameters on record.  A 65,120-pound dump truck hit the DSC501 at 50mph and was stopped at the barrier.  At the time of the test, this would have roughly equated to a K54 rating with the crash energy equaling 54,000,000 foot-pounds.  How impressive is this?  The current highest ASTM M50 testing level requires 12,500,000 foot-pounds of energy when impacting the barrier.  This is factor of over 4x which is extremely impressive considering the magnitude of the current M50 test.

Contact Delta Scientific today if you want to make sure your facility has the strongest, most reliable barriers on the market.  We are celebrating 50 years in business in 2024.
