Delta Scientific has announced that Bradley Air National Guard Base has installed a Delta Scientific HD300EM shallow mount wedge barricade system at the 103rd Airlift Wing, the third-oldest Air National Guard unit in the country. Installed by American Barrier and Controls LLC, the ‘Stop Control Safety’ access control point provides security at this constrained location with a relatively low traffic volume of less than 800 vehicles per hour per lane.
With a 24-inch foundation and a fully electric control unit, the HD300EM barrier stops a 15,000 lb truck impacting at 50mph dead in its tracks with zero penetration. Upon impact, the barrier remains in its foundation and the opening stays blocked, providing a multiple hit capability. The barrier is independently test lab certified to 1 million cycles.
