Rubber Berm Trap™

The hassle-free design of Action Target’s Rubber Berm Trap™ (RBT) takes advantage of the practical and beneficial properties of rubber, while eliminating the weaknesses and unnecessary elements of other designs. The performance of the RBT can be impressive under certain shooting situations, but perhaps the greatest feature is its price. Because value and customer satisfaction are the sources of Action Target’s strength, we ensure that our high quality rubber berm trap functions as well as any other design out there and that it is offered at a reasonable price.

Class A ASTM E108-11 compliant treatment is the best fire resistant rating on the market.


Design of trap allows for close-range and cross-lane tactical training.


Trap is installed in sections and easily retrofits sand and dirt berms.

When you shoot into a dirt berm, the friction of passing through the dirt is what ultimately stops the bullet. A Rubber Berm Trap works exactly the same way, with the obvious difference being the use of chopped rubber instead of dirt or sand. Because the rubber is a softer collection medium, ricochet and lead dust can be significantly reduced in some applications. Cross-range firing is safer as is firing at extremely close distances. Such benefits make this trap an excellent choice for certain indoor ranges and other low-volume ranges where lead dust is of paramount concern.

RBT Fin Retainers 01If left unchecked, the rubber has a tendency to “flow” toward the bottom of the trap. This can cause areas of hazardous decreased density near the top which may allow rounds to escape. To decrease these problems, our support structure is mounted with special fins that run horizontally along the trap.

Our steel support structure is modular so we can build a trap to fit any size range. Because all the components can easily fit through a normal sized door, installation is simple and efficient—even on older existing facilities. If one of the components is damaged, it can be easily removed and repaired without disassembling the entire trap. Because no hoppers, doors, or access panels are required on the top or the back of the trap, we can build it flush against the walls to save you as much precious range space as possible.

RBT Fire Treat Detail 01Flame Lock™ is a latex-based adhesive coating that covers rubber granules in the rubber berm trap. Adding Flame Lock can give range masters and owners piece of mind as it inhibits the spread of fire in rubber berm traps. Different from gels and other expanding polymers, Flame Lock does not require frequent watering and rehydration in order to be effective. It uses intumescent properties, that when flame is applied, expand and grow to cover and further protect the rubber media, quenching flame and protecting structures. Action Target partnered with industry-leading laboratories to develop a product that eliminates the frequent maintenance and deficiencies found in other products.  Flame Lock is applied in layers to new and existing traps, and only reapplied when necessary as rubber media is replaced. It does not require coverage on every granule to be effective. Flame Lock has been tested for its flame retardant properties on rubber media at leading third-party national laboratories and has received an ASTM E-108-11 Class A rating, the highest performance rating available. Flame Lock can also be used on Sure Stop™ rubber blocks and panels, where it has been awarded an ASTM E-84 Class A fire rating.

.50 BMG Considerations
The ATI Class 2 (Rifle) rated version can handle .50 BMG rounds; however, due to the powerful nature of this round certain factors need to be considered related to the life expectancy and maintenance of the Rubber Berm Trap. To learn more, follow this link: Learn More>
