Delta Scientific, the leading manufacturer of counter-terrorist vehicle control systems used in the United States and internationally, today announced that Windsor Castle, home of the English and British monarchy since the time of Henry I (1110) and the longest occupied palace in Europe, is being protected from terrorist vehicle attacks with Delta's DSC800 decorative bollards.
Virtually unlimited in styles and aesthetics, safety consultants can specify having ornamental steel trim attached directly to the bollard or select cast aluminum, iron or bronze to slip over the crash tube. If damaged, one simply slides off the old sleeve and slips on a new one. The designer bollards are available in stainless steel, cast stone, ceramics and epoxy based stones. They can be fitted with an internal warning light for increased visibility and engineered to suit high traffic volumes.
"These decorative bollards come in six different series - traditional, silhouette, sculptured, omni, lineas and architect," explains Greg Hamm, Delta Scientific vice president, sales and marketing. "Protection levels all meet or exceed U.S. Department of Defense and Department of State certifications. They hold the highest ratings ever given to bollard systems."
The DSC800 is certified at K4, L2, and able to stop a 15,000 pound (6,800 kg) vehicle at 30 mph (50 kph).
