saudi turf team Soundproofing An Indoor Shooting Range

saudi turf team ballistic rubber Soundproofing  Indoor Shooting Range

Generally a rubber shooting rooms in saudi arabia range is constructed of hard concrete walls or cinder block filled with concrete. These ranges are soundproofed to the outdoors, but on the inside, the noise from muzzle blasts can be unbearable to the shooters even with ear protection.

The problem is that the noise from the firing weapons is confined and has no where to go within this space.

There are ways to reduce this noise by up to 15 dB, which doesn't sound like a much, but it would actually make the BALSTIC RUBBER range much more tolerable and would keep the muffle the noise and prevent it from reflecting endlessly off of the walls, ceiling and the floor of the range.

There is a panels that is called Silent panel that is a propylene bead board panel that is extremely effective and reducting the reverb and reflective noise from the interior of the RUBBER GUN RANGE range.

Obviously the more area you cover the better the reduction would be The method for reducing the reflective noise is relatively easy. On the rubber shooting rooms concrete walls as well as the ceiling you would attach 1" furring strips attached with masonry screws. The furring strips would be placed 2 ft apart to allow for a bonded acoustical cottom backing to be fitted between these strips. The bonded acoustical cotton helps to absorb the reflective noise in conjunction with the Silent panels

Once the rubber surfaces in shooting rooms walls and the ceiling are fitted with the 1"furring strips you would then glue in sections of the 1 " bonded acoustical cotton strips. The acoustical cotton material is called Echoless Roll matand it comes in  rubber shooting rolls that are 4' wide by 50' long (200 sq ft per roll) These rolls would need to be cut in half down the middle so they would fit tightly between the 1" furring strips. it is best to glue the Echoless material drectly to the concrete walls between the furring strips. Once you have the Echoless roll material adhered to the walls between the furring strip you come to the last step in this process.

As stated before, the more area you cover with the rubber system the better the noise reduction will be.

These materials are relatively inexpensive and can make a remarkable difference in the internal acoustics of your firing range.

this system has a two fold purpose and is able to absorb the noise from both sides. The bonded cotton is one of the most absorbent materials on the market today and in conjunction with the Silent panels which block and diffuse the sound, you would have a very effective sound reduction system and your rubber shooting rooms range would be much more appealing to your shooting customers.
