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.
Raising in only five seconds and lowering in merely two seconds yields a fast cycle rate of over 100 vehicles in and out per hour, making the DSC7090 ideal for higher traffic and population locations. The DSC7090 is used when wide roadways need to be secured from attacking vehicles and in larger parking areas where security systems are needed to deter theft.
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.
