SUWANEE, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The NRA Range Development and Operations Conference on March 4-7, 2017 in Indianapolis, Indiana will provide a forum for Meggitt Training Systems’ representatives to meet current and prospective range owners. Topics include the future of range planning, design, installation, equipment, proper ventilation and opportunities for greater facility sharing with local, state and federal authorities.
“With over 90 years of experience, 24/7 on-call customer support and the industry’s leading products, Meggitt Training Systems understands all facets of shooting range design, construction and installation,” said Jon Read, director of live-fire systems. “The solutions we’re emphasizing at the NRA’s spring event are part of Meggitt’s comprehensive portfolio for range owners worldwide.”
Meggitt’s new solutions for range owners include:
- SafeZone™ shooting stalls offer the customization to create clear or solid stalls, or a mixture of both. Completely reconfigurable and backward compatible, new shooting stalls can be set up in the same location as existing ones. SafeZone stalls are L3 pistol and/or L8 rifle rated and are available with a black frame, solid black dividing panel, and a brass shield to prevent spent casings from going into adjacent lanes. A swing down shooter’s shelf features a resilient surface, raised edges to prevent accidental drop off, and a recessed tray area containing all weapons, ammunition and other range equipment within the confines of the stall. The acoustical blast shield extends to further shelter adjacent shooters, while a site light illuminates the stall interior.
- Aiphone® communication systems enable a range operator and shooters to communicate easily with each other, allowing the operator to monitor changing safety conditions in real time. The digital video remote system lets the range operator call, listen and converse with an individual shooter, a select group or all shooters in unison by simply pressing the selector button on the master station. Or the operator can view the shooter via a video feed, allowing real-time feedback and response time for calls to master control. Plastic or stainless-steel remote audio communication systems provide a similar level of functionality to the digital video remote, minus the video feed.
