Delta’s Portable Barrier and Bollard Systems

Protect Sydney’s Annual City2Surf Run

Rented Vehicle Access Control Solutions Help Manage Key Roadway

to Protect 85,000 Participants

PALMDALE, CALIF. – 20 August, 2019 – Delta Scientific, the leading manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, today announced that Delta’s innovative DSC1000 portable barrier and TB100 portable bollard systems were rented from Australian-based Knight Brothers to help protect the 85,000 entrants in the world’s largest run on 11 August. Both a fun run and a competitive contest, the City2Surf Run covers a 14 kilometer (8.7 mile) course that begins in Sydney’s Central Business District (CBD) and culminates at scenic Bondi Beach.
“This annual event needs a vehicle access and control system that can be deployed temporarily and quickly to secure vehicle check points into the main event area for the mobilization, execution and demobilization phases,” explains Matthew Knight, director of Knight Brothers Pty Ltd, Australian partner of Delta Scientific. “At the same time, they did not want to purchase units that would only be used once a year.For such applications, a lease plan has been created where organizations can simply lease the portable barriers and bollards, use them, pack them up and return them.”
Knight adds, “Pre-packed in a 20 foot container, the DSC1000 barrier and TB100 bollard array package was delivered to site and deployed within an hour to provide effective perimeter protection whilst maintaining the required pedestrian and vehicle thoroughfares into the event grounds.”
The DSC1000 is a self-contained unit that is stored and towed on its own trailer.Light enough to be pulled by a golf cart and set up in only 10 minutes, the DSC1000 portable barrier’s crash test stopped a 2300 kg vehicle going 64 km/p, providing it with an ASTM rating of P40. With no foundation or electrical hook-up needed, two people can set up and take down the DSC1000 special event barrier.
The patent pending crash rated TB100 portable bollard system lets security providers promptly block access to temporary venues. Individual portable bollards provide vehicle safety in applications such as heavily traveled narrow walkways and roadways or any area that a vehicle can get through. Certified testing demonstrates that a TB100 portable bollard system will stop and disable a 6,804 kg vehicle traveling at 48 kph, resulting in an ASTM M30, P3 rating. A single TB100 bollard absorbs 400,000 foot pounds of kinetic energy.
