Delta’s DSC635 Achieves M50 Rating
Delta Scientific has announced the successful testing of its Model DSC635, a single shallow foundation bollard design that stopped and destroyed a 15,000 pound test truck with less than two feet of static penetration and 6.14 feet of dynamic. The simulated bomb load remained intact on contained on the truck bed. The test vehicle weighed 15,000 pounds and was traveling over 50 miles per hour. The fronts wheels were pushed back behind the cab and the engine ended up on the passenger side of the seat. The truck was stopped and completely disabled.
“Delta is proud of our long history of innovation and full scale crash testing,” states David Dickinson, CEO of Delta Scientific.
The DSC635 bollard has a height of 44 inches and a diameter of 15.75 inches with a cover. Delta’s bollards can be furnished with an array of decorative covers to enhance the look and match the aesthetic of the surrounding structures. These covers include stainless steel, powder coated aluminum, and fiberglass with custom styling and painting also available. Lights, beacons and audible devices can also be added to the bollards for additional safety protocols.
Delta has been manufacturing shallow foundation bollards and barricades (24 inches or less) for decades. Shallow foundation bollards are the perfect solution for sidewalks, campuses, parking structures and government/ corporate facility perimeters where underground utilities and space limitations pose a problem for traditional deep foundation bollards. Delta’s shallow foundation bollards are often used to protect building perimeters and sports stadiums as static arrays and used in conjunction with the Delta’s active bollards and vehicle barricades at entrances and exits.
