The shallow foundation M50/P1 DSC550 open frame vehicle barrier was tested to the new ASTM F2656-20 standard, which measures the penetration level from the leading edge of the barrier versus the back side of the barrier like the previous standard. This can provide a difference of up to five additional feet and makes the negative penetration level even more impressive. The barrier features a shallow foundation of only 24 in. The open frame design additionally provides a counter-balance design with no springs that need extra maintenance. The DSC550 alleviates the concerns of interference with buried pipes, power lines and fiber optic communication lines in urban applications. The shallow foundation also reduces installation complexity, time, materials and corresponding costs. It is perfect for high water table locations and areas with corrosive soils and provides an emergency fast operation of 1.5 seconds for electro-mechanical and 0.75 seconds for hydraulic operations. It also features intuitive touchscreen controls with data-logging and custom programming.
