Certification Level: Passed K-12 Bollard test
Gross Vehicle Weight: 15,000 pounds/66.7 kN
Crash Speed: 50 mph/80 kph

Delta Scientific’s DSC600 Shallow Foundation Bollards protect approaches to buildings, drop-off and passenger loading areas at transportation hubs, storefronts, sports arenas, office buildings and other presently unprotected locations where vehicle bombers and errant drivers have no obstacles.

With the DSC600 crash rated bollard modules, those facilities surrounded by streets, abutting sidewalks and set back on lawns, such as many state capitals, other government structures, stadiums, theaters, and commercial buildings, can now be effectively protected.

With a foundation only 14 inches (35.5 cm) deep versus the four feet (1.2 m) typically required, Delta’s DSC600 Shallow Foundation High Security Bollards can be installed within sidewalks, on top of concrete deck truss bridges, or in planters. They can also conform to varying inclines and turns of a locale. The new 2-bollard modules, which can be arrayed in whatever length is required, will stop and destroy a 15,000-pound (66.7 kN) truck traveling 50 miles per hour (80 kph).

DSC600 Fixed Bollard Crash Test

The DSC600 is the first Shallow Foundation Bollard to successfully meet the U.S. Department of State Specification, Revision A that requires the bed of the attacking truck to go less than 39 inches (1 m) beyond the point of impact.

In its K-12 bollard certified crash test on July 31, 2007, the penetration of the truck was only 15 inches (38.1 cm), with only minor damage to the DSC600 bollards, meeting both the US and United Kingdom 1-meter requirements. Both bollards in the module were structurally sound and the foundation pad was intact. The system stood ready to accept a subsequent hit, a tactic employed by terrorists.
