At Delta Scientific, we know that you need to rely on our products to perform correctly and predictably in emergency situations. When a vehicle is barreling toward your facility, the difference between a catastrophe and a crisis averted can be a matter of seconds. For this reason, we put our products through multiple crash test scenarios to determine a crash rating, i.e., how effective each barrier is under a particular set of circumstances. We then submit to various certifying agencies to confirm and validate the results.
The highest crash-rated bollard that we offer at Delta Scientific is the DSC720. With a crash rating of K-12, its height of 35 inches is sufficient to stop most large vehicles. However, in Europe and the Middle East, truck cabs are taller than in the United States. Because these taller models can be top-heavy, they may tumble over standard bollards and cause damage even after bringing the vehicle to a halt.
Delta Scientific’s high-security barricades meet or exceed standards for the industry as evidenced by our crash ratings. However, unless you understand what the ratings mean, you cannot really appreciate how effective our barriers are. For this reason, we feel that it may be helpful to explain the crash ratings behind our products and what they mean.
The stopping capabilities of beam barricades are set forth in several crash rating standards. These classifications can guide the selection of the right high security beam barrier for any location. Delta Scientific will assist you to determine the best beam barricade solution.
