Wedge Barricade DSC2000

DSC2000 Wedge Barricade – K-12 Crash Rated Barrier

K-12 Crash Rated Barricade DSC2000 EM

Vehicle Stopping Systems
Installation Design: Shallow Foundation Barrier
Model #: DSC2000

The new DSC2000 high speed, high security, very shallow foundation barrier is Delta’s fastest, smallest and shallowest foundation barricade, created especially for high speed actuation and simple installation.

Delta has developed a counter balanced electromechanical version of the highly successful DSC2000 K-12 barricade system. Each module is individually counter balanced and can be raised manually with one hand. With a coupled electromechanical drive one, two, three or four modules can be powered with a single self contained motor drive.

Those applications where electromechanical drives are desired. The DSC2000 has two speeds, normal and emergency fast. The DSC2000 also accommodates locations that have crowned or sloped roadways and driveways. Please contact Delta for details.

Product Highlights

Certified by: U.S. Department of State

Certification Level: K12 (SD-SDT-02.01 Revision A dated March 2003)

Gross Vehicle Weight: 15,000 pounds/66.7 kN

Crash Speed: 50 mph/80kph

United Kingdom Crash Test

The DSC2000 has been tested to the United Kingdom BSI Standard PAS:68 2007 Crash Test. 7.5 Tonne EU truck at 80 kph. Two Meter penetration and partially functional after the vehicle was removed. The two outer barricades were operational. Second attack readiness demonstrated.

K12 crash-certified by the U.S. Dept. of State (SD-SDT-02.01 Revision A dated March 2003) with no penetration, it stops a 15,000 pound (66.7 kN) vehicle traveling 50 mph (80 kph) dead in its tracks. When danger is imminent, the barricade rises in less than one-half second (0.5 seconds)!

The DSC2000 barricade is designed to go places.

Because each module weighs only 1100 pounds (500 kg) and is easy to install, the DSC2000 barricade is perfect for remote locations and developing country installations. It fits in a small shipping package or air cargo container for convenient air transport. Modules can even be carried in the back of a pick-up truck.

For ease of shipping, the complete barricade system, including the hydraulic power unit, control circuits and controls, all fit on two 4 ft. x 6 ft. pallets that can easily be handled by a lightweight yard fork lift or pallet jack.

The barricade modules can be manhandled into place and installed without the use of power equipment. This barricade can be set up, sited and cast in place without removing the top plate.

Multiple modules can be deployed in configurations to guard wide roadways to narrow driveways. Designed for heavy use, the DSC2000 produces more than 100,000 cycles per month with axle loading greater than 22,000 pounds.

With its extremely shallow foundation and aesthetic design, the DSC2000 is a major breakthrough in high duty, anti-terrorist barricades. It obviates the concerns of interference with buried pipes, power lines and fiber optic communication lines. The DSC2000 is perfect for high water table locations and areas with corrosive soils. The ten-inch shallow foundation also reduces installation complexity, time, materials and corresponding costs.

Delta’s fastest, smallest and shallowest foundation barricade was created especially for high speed applications and ease of installation. It is K12 crash certified with no penetration, meaning it will stop a 15,000 pound (66.7 kN) vehicle traveling 50 mph (80 kph) dead in its tracks.

Representatives from the U.S. Department of State, Army Corps of Engineers and Bureau of Reclamation who witnessed the July 2005 crash tests for the DSC2000 were very impressed.

Set in a foundation only ten inches (25 cm) deep versus the standard 18 inches on most shallow foundation barriers, the Delta DSC2000 survived and operated after a crash test with a 1.5 million foot pound impact, exceeding Department of State and Department of Defense test standards.

Wedge Barricade HD2055

Wedge Barricade HD2055

The HD2055 electromechanically controlled anti-terrorist barricade decisively stops 15,000 pound (6,803 kg) vehicles traveling at 51 (82 kph) in a recent crash test conducted by an independent testing laboratory. The HD2055 barricades not only stopped the vehicle but contained the test load representing the bombs strapped to the truck bed. The crash test result showed a less than zero penetration.

Wedge Barricade TT207SFM

The TT207sFM is a K12 rated barricade 15,000 pound truck at 50 mph. It comes in two versions, surface mounted for parking ramps and with the standard 18 inch foundation. This high security barricade is also available with a debris screen. When the K-12 barricade is in the up position, the hydraulics are protected by the heavy metal ramp plate. Widths available: 12 foot to 24 foot clear opening.
Wedge Barricade DSC501

Wedge Barricade DSC501

Advanced counter-terrorism wedge barrier system for sub-surface conditions that negate extensive excavations. K54 testing exceeds government levels… The DSC501 not only stopped and destroyed a 65,000-pound (5.4 million foot-pounds) dump truck but the barricade continued to stand, preventing a potential second attack. The foundation was undamaged.
