An effective noise control measure for firing ranges is ballistic rubber. Unlike steel and plywood ranges, ranges with ballistic rubber nearly eliminate bullet impact noise. In addition, rubber products with protruded exterior reduces reverberation as well. Noise is absorbed as the channels disrupt sound wave patterns so they quickly dissipate resulting in a noise reduction.
When used as a component of a ballistic containment system, rubber panels will capture and encapsulate bullets and fragments, prevent ricochet from trajectory angles as shallow as 12 degrees from the rubber surface, and reduce airborne lead particles.
Quick to install, sound dampening STS ballistic rubber is a special type of noise reduction material designed to reduce reverberation and absorb sound waves at almost all frequencies. If you’re in areas governed by fire regulations due to extreme heat concerns, STS has rubber panels presenting powerful sound absorbing qualities without the need for extra construction.
Noise-absorbing materials like acoustic foam also work great to minimize unwanted noise and echoing in gun ranges.
Gun ranges are constructed of bare walls and hard floors. While built for safety, these hard, reflective surfaces create excessive echoes and noise reverberation. The impact of gunshot sounds is increased.
A gunshot registers in the high decibel levels. It’s even higher when indoors. Although your members wear ear protection, the sounds of gunshots can cause hearing damage. For your employees or regular members, the risk of hearing damage is even greater.
Another common problem with poor gun range soundproofing is sound leaking out of the building, causing complaints. Nearby businesses and homes are often bothered by the gunshot sounds at a neighboring gun range.
Gun range owners and associations come to Soundproof Cow because they want to offer a more protective environment for their employees and members. They also want to reduce the sound that leaks out of the building. We have the gun range soundproofing materials needed to treat the range area and outer walls, greatly reducing the noise of gunshots.
People new to gun ranges often don’t realize just how loud the sound of gunfire can be. It’s possible for some to be quite shaken when they hear multiple gunshot reports up close. Proper indoor firing range soundproofing can help you prevent startling new potential customers.
What can Gun Range Sound insulation do for you?
• Improve the safety of your gun range by decreasing the noise of gunshots; your members and employees are further protected from hearing loss
• Reduce echo and reverberation, resulting in overall improved sound quality
• Stop the sounds of gunshots from leaking out of the building and bothering nearby businesses or homes…which means ending complaints from neighbors
• Help prevent any new potential customers from being startled, overwhelmed or uncomfortable the first time they come to your indoor gun range and hear loud gunshot reports.
• Create a generally more pleasant environment for all of your members to hone their shooting range skills.
