Single bollard stops and destroys simulated bomb truck

Issue 2 2021 Access Control & Identity Management

Delta Scientific announced the successful testing of its Model DSC635, a single shallow foundation bollard design that stops and destroys a 6804 kg test truck with less than 0.6 m of static penetration and 1.87 m of dynamic penetration. The simulated bomb load remained intact and contained on the truck bed. The test vehicle was traveling over 80 kph. The front 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 111 cm and a diameter of 40 cm 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 aluminium and fibreglass 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 60.96 cm or less for decades. Shallow foundation bollards are the perfect solution for pavements, 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.
