Delta Scientific announced that a truck crashed into a DSC600 bollard protecting the Old Capitol ground June 13, 2019, in Tallahassee. The vehicle went no further than the bollard itself, stuck on top so well that it took two other trucks to remove it. The driver survived.
With a foundation only 14 inches (35.5 cm) deep versus the four feet (1.2 m) typically required, Delta’s DSC600 Shallow Foundation High Security Bollards can be installed within sidewalks, on top of concrete deck truss bridges or in planters. They can also conform to varying inclines and turns of a locale.
The new 2-bollard modules, which can be arrayed in whatever length is required, will stop and destroy a 15,000-pound (66.7 kN) truck traveling 50 miles per hour (80 kph).
“DSC600 bollards protect the Capitol grounds and their aesthetics with K-12 defense that meets or exceeds U.S. Department of State and Department of Defense certifications,” affirms Greg Hamm, Delta Scientific vice president of marketing and sales.
“With the DSC600 crash rated bollard modules, facilities surrounded by streets, abutting sidewalks and set back on lawns, such as many state capitals, other government structures, stadiums, theaters and commercial buildings, can now be effectively protected.”
Delta Scientific has been engineering and manufacturing vehicle access control equipment since 1974 and sells its products worldwide.
