Delta Single Shallow Foundation Bollard Earns M30 Rating
The single shallow foundation bollard design stopped and destroyed a 15,000-pound test truck during a simulated rating test.
PALMDALE, Calif. — Delta Scientific announces the successful testing of its ASTM F2656-20 M30/P1-certified Model DSC633, a single shallow foundation bollard design that stops and destroys a 15,000-pound test truck with -8.82 feet of static penetration and -3.63 feet of dynamic penetration.
The simulated bomb load remained intact and contained on the truck bed, according to the announcement. The test vehicle weighed 15,000 pounds and was traveling more than 30 miles per hour. The truck was stopped and completely disabled, the announcement states.
“The negative penetration levels recorded on this test continue to prove the stopping power of Delta’s barriers,” says David Dickinson, CEO of Delta Scientific.
The DSC633 has a height of 44 inches and a diameter of 13.75 inches with a cover. Delta’s bollards can be furnished with an array of decorative covers to enhance the look and match the aesthetics of the surrounding structures.
The covers include stainless steel, powder-coated aluminum and fiberglass 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 24 inches or less for decades. Shallow foundation bollards are billed as the perfect solution for sidewalks, 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 company’s active bollards and vehicle barricades at entrances and exits.
