In addition to its environmental advantages, Reclining GranTrap™ allows more efficient reclamation of spent projectiles. Rear access doors in the support structure are conveniently located behind the target region to allow for easy access to the primary collection area. A secondary benefit realized by Reclining GranTrap™ is the elimination of noise associated with bullet impact and deceleration on steel bullet traps. This is particularly important when the range shares a common wall with other occupants of the building.
Reclining GranTrap™ was specifically designed with several important safety features. This primary collection area, or target region, contains a larger volume of GranTex™ to absorb the rounds and greatly extend the service time interval. To maintain a consistent depth of GranTex™ across the trap, a supply bin provides a continuous replenishment. In addition, a supplemental bin, also known as the “safety bin”, is located behind the primary supply bin and maintains ballistic integrity of the trap.
When a significant amount of shooting will be conducted from walk-up distances, Model LE7500-OTR Reclining GranTrap™ provides added coverage. An armour plate upper slope sheet extends from the rear-side of the trap across the entire width of the trap to protect the ceiling, exhaust ducts, and other protrusions that may be venerable to being hit.
