Action Target has designed an innovative combination of steel, wood, and acoustical tile to create our safety baffles— one of the most critical safety concerns in any indoor range. These safety baffles ensure errant bullets can’t escape to the outside, providing ballistic protection to lights, pipes, ventilation ducts, and other structures, while also delivering sound abatement, and a polished, professional appearance to the range.
The Action Target baffle system is a crucial component of the range. It is specifically engineered and designed to not allow any rounds to leave a range. Instead, every round fired is directed safely towards the trap. Baffles in close proximity to shooters on both fixed firing line ranges and tactical ranges are specifically designed to contain splatter and ricoochet of a bullet. This reduces the risk of injury to a shooter in the case of an accidental discharge into the ceiling.
Two classes of baffles are available—ATI Class 1 and ATI Class 2. ATI Class 1 baffles are designed for use on pistol ranges, while the ATI Class 2 baffles are designed for use on rifle ranges. For more information on baffle ratings, please reference the Ballistic Class chart.
