The DSC7500 swing beam barricade is designed to close off one or two lanes of a roadway and provide counter terrorist level protection against vehicle attack. The barricade stops a 15,000-pound (66.7 kN) vehicle traveling 50 mph (80 kph) with zero penetration, equivalent to 1.2-million foot-pounds of kinetic energy.
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 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.
