Safety Baffles

U.S. Patent # 5822936

Action Target Safety Baffles used in LAOne of the most critical safety concerns on any indoor range is making sure bullets can’t escape to the outside. In addition to keeping fired bullets from exiting the range, Action Target Safety Baffles offer protection for overhead lights, pipes, ventilation ducts, and other structures. Action Target also offers Wall Baffle Systems to keep the walls of your shooting range from being damaged by errant bullets which could compromise the integrity of the structure over time.

Action Target Indoor Safety BafflesUsing an innovative combination of steel, wood, and acoustical tile, Action Target Baffles provide ballistic protection, sound abatement, and a polished, professional appearance. Unlike other baffles and protective ceilings, the Action Target system links all protective components together into a continuous baffle, thus eliminating gaps where a round might get through and cause damage or injury.

Four Levels of Protection

To ensure you get exactly what you need for your specific range requirements, Action Target Safety Baffles come in four levels of protection:

  • The Level 1 baffle is made of 10 gauge steel and will deflect and contain most standard handgun rounds fired at an angle of at least 45 degrees from perpendicular. Some damage to the steel plate may occur. Repeated rounds impacting the same area may breach the baffle.
  • The Level 2 baffle is made of 1/4″ mild steel, and will deflect and contain standard handgun rounds fired at an angle of at least 45 degrees from perpendicular with little or no damage to the steel plate. This baffle will also deflect and contain standard handgun rounds fired at a perpendicular angle with some potential damage to the steel plate.
  • The Level 3 baffle is made of 1/4″ AR steel and will deflect and contain standard handgun rounds fired at a perpendicular angle with no damage to the steel plate. This baffle will also deflect and contain high-power rounds (.223 and .308) fired at an angle of at least 45 degrees from perpendicular. Some damage to the steel plate may occur.
  • The Level 4 baffle is made of 3/8″ AR steel and will deflect and contain standard handgun rounds fired at a perpendicular angle with no damage to the steel plate. This baffle will also deflect and contain high-power rounds (.223 and .308) fired at a perpendicular angle. High-power rounds fired at a perpendicular angle will cause damage to the steel plate. Repeated high-power rounds fired at a perpendicular angle impacting in the same area may breach the baffle.
