Helping to shape the future of fire safety

December 2000 Fire & Safety

Delta Scientific's IP500 Portable Barrier systems have been chosen to protect entrances from unauthorised vehicles at the United States Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan.

"Since 9-11, the need for easy to install, temporary, drop-arm beam barriers to quickly block entrances to embassies or roads to embassies is a critical programme of the United States Department of State," explains David Dickinson, Delta Scientific senior vice president. "With this barrier, they can protect embassy personnel and visitors within the day."

No excavation or foundation is required for the portable barrier's two support buttresses. The portable system can be operated using any Delta hydraulic, pneumatic or manual system including fully automatic access or remote control by hardwire or RF links.
