DELTA SCIENTIFIC INSTALLS ROAD BARRIERS IN SYDNEY.

Byline: Daily News

PALMDALE - Delta Scientific announced it has installed anti-terrorist vehicle barriers at the international cruise ship terminal at Sydney Harbour in Australia.

Delta's DSC501 barriers lie flat in the road until activated, at which point they spring up at a 45-degree angle.

``We are pleased that the Port of Sydney Harbour chose Delta Scientific barriers to protect this critical passenger terminal,'' Delta Scientific Senior Vice President David Dickinson said in a statement. ``The DSC501 was designed for the U.S. Navy, and has also been selected for use at U.S. embassies around the globe. We have installed over 1,000 of these high security barriers throughout the world.''

The DSC501 barricade is designed to stop and destroy a 15,000-pound vehicle traveling 50 mph. It is set in a foundation only 18 inches deep.

At Sydney Harbour, the barriers prevent speeding vehicles from getting past the guard post at the Overseas Passenger Terminal at Circular Quay, where about 90 vessels are expected to dock during the busy summer months.

Nearly 160,000 passengers are expected to come through the port, representing a major part of Australia's tourism industry.

The anti-terrorist barriers were installed as part of an effort to upgrade security at ports in the state of New South Wales. Other heightened security measures include closed-circuit TV cameras, exclusion zones and security patrols.

Delta Scientific has more than 250,000 square feet of production facilities in Valencia and Palmdale. It builds high-security vehicle-barricade systems, parking-control equipment and guard booths.

Corporate headquarters, equipment sales, systems engineering and technical service are in Valencia.
