Delta Scientific has announced that its new DSC 1200 surface mounted barricade provides an easy to install high security vehicle access control system for banks, city and federal government offices, museums, corporate buildings, factories, oil refineries, railway, airport and other transportation hubs as well as other facilities threatened by truck bomb attack, errant drivers or car-crashing thieves. Installers can simply epoxy and bolt the new DSC 1200 barricade to an already-existing concrete slab.

“There continues to be great demand for certified crash-resistant
barricades that can be installed quickly and inexpensively,” explains
David Dickinson, Delta Scientific senior vice-president. “From smashing
a vehicle into a museum to stealing art to stopping terrorists at
government facilities, the DSC 1200 provides a plug-and-play temporary
or permanent security alternative that can be operational within

Ready to operate, the DSC 1200 high security barricade features
a self-contained motor drive in one buttress and operates on
single-phase household voltages. Stop-and-go signal lights and access
control logic are also built-in. To manage the barricade, operators use
touch screen control panels, which simply plug into the barricade’s
control circuits.

The DSC 1200 high-security barricade will stop and destroy a 15,000-pound (66.7 kN) truck travelling 30
miles per hour (48 kph). The DSC 1200 high security barricades are also
perfect for high water table locations and areas with corrosive soils.
Needing no foundation except a cement slab obviates the concerns of
interference with subsurface water, gas and fuel pipes, storm drains,
power lines and fiber optic communication lines. Simply epoxying and
bolting the barricades to a slab instead of having to dig a trench also
reduces installation complexity, time, materials and corresponding
