It has been certified by the U.S. Department of State to stop a 15,000 pound vehicle in less than 20 feet. Actual penetration is 5 feet. Both hydraulic and manual versions are available. Patents are pending.
The DSC7000 K12crash rated beam barricade is used worldwide at locations where wide roadways need to be secured from attacking vehicles. It provides protection between 12- to 20-foot wide with options to 30 feet (3.7 to 9.2 m). The 725-pound beam of the vertical lift barricade stops a 15,000-pound (66.7 kN) vehicle traveling 50 mph (80 kph) dead in its tracks, equivalent to 1.2-million foot-pounds of kinetic energy.
The TT212 Beam Barricade is used at government facilities, embassies and automotive sales facilities. When CarMax, the Auto Superstore® and the nation’s leading specialty retailer of used cars, needed a low maintenance system that would deter theft from their lots and integrate with their present security system, they chose Delta Scientific’s beam barricades.
