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.
• 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.
The best way to approach indoor firing range soundproofing is to use Quiet Barrier® Class A Specialty Composite products from Soundproof Cow. This soundproofing barrier is specially designed for minimizing loud and harsh sounds like engines, machinery and even explosions. The four-layer composite includes multiple layers of foam and soundproof barriers to maximize isolation and deadening of both airborne sound and impact sound.
While it’s a good idea to soundproof as much of your gun range as you possibly can, including walls, floor and ceiling, it is often not feasible to cover your entire establishment with soundproofing material. Therefore, you should start by soundproofing the areas closest to the point of the gun report. When adding additional soundproofing, work your way out from the starting point.
Quiet Barrier™ Specialty Composite comes with easy peel-and-stick backing, so it’s no problem to install it wherever you need it. You may also want to get feedback from your customers on the level of noise control. If they love how your soundproofing is working — great! However, they may also be able to clue you in about areas of your facility where additional soundproofing efforts are needed.
