Delta Scientific announced the new shallow foundation M50/P1 DSC550 Open Frame vehicle barrier. The DSC550 was tested to the new ASTM F2656-20 standard which measures the penetration level from the leading edge of the barrier versus the back-side of the barrier like the previous standard. This can provide a difference of up to five additional feet (1.52 m.) and makes the negative penetration level even more impressive.
Delta Scientific announced that they have reached a milestone in achieving job number 10,000. That translates to over 9,800 wedge barricades, 1,100 gates, 5,300 beam barriers, 23,000 bollards and thousands of traffic spikes and gate arms. The first order was entered into the system in 1974 for what is now the Sabre Tooth Traffic Control with Tire Spikes that enforces “One Way” traffic flow for parking facilities or other single direction vehicle lanes.
While many things have changed due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, some things still remain the same. The threats of vehicular violence are still present even though collisions have become less frequent and traffic, in general, is at a significant low.

Half of the battle against aggressors perpetrating a vehicle attack is pre-planning.
