The ABCs of Security in Private Enterprises

The need for security measures in public places, such as government buildings and military installations, is obvious. If it wasn’t obvious before, it should be after the assault on our national capital early this year. Private enterprises’ need for security is not always as obvious but is just as pressing, This is especially true of buildings and complexes that see a great deal of traffic on a daily basis. If it is a mix of both foot and motor vehicle traffic, the need is even greater. Here is a summary of security issues at various points in the private sector, as well as solutions that we offer at Delta Scientific.

Lessons Learned From Capitol Insurrection

In October 2020, the United States Department of Homeland Security identified domestic terrorism and violent extremism as one of the most significant threats facing the nation. The FBI warns that it is the foremost terrorism threat of 2021. On January 6th, we all watched in horror as violent domestic extremists stormed the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., while both houses of Congress were in session.

SAFETY Act Certification and Why It Matters to You

Active and passive barriers from Delta Scientific provide protection from high-speed vehicle attack. Because the protection they offer is so consistent, 16 of our products, including bollards, barricades, and crash gates, have received SAFETY Act Certification from the Department of Homeland Security. Essentially, this means that our products not only provide you physical security but legal protection as well.

Spotlight on Our New DSC550 Shallow Foundation Barricade

At Delta Scientific, we understand the challenges of implementing an adequate security barricade in the presence of such obstacles. That’s why we have offered portable and shallow foundation barricades for some time. We are excited to introduce our newest shallow foundation barricade, the DSC550. It has a number of qualities that make it a viable security solution for your facility.

Gates Can Be the Weak Link in Security

A chain is only as strong as its weakest link. When that chain is part of perimeter fencing, the most vulnerable point may not be where you think. Gates act as more than security equipment, they represent structural safety meant to stop even the largest of threats. While bollards and recessed rising barricades are effective, they just don’t project the outward strength that is immediately captured by a well-constructed and manned gate. Even so, that image can be shattered in short order when a determined assailant decides to take action against private or secured property.

Your company needs the right equipment in place to ensure the safety and security of equipment and to prevent tragedies.
