Firing Range

Safer, Healthier, and More Productive Firing Ranges

Indoor Firing Range

Safety standards to avoid lead poisoning have improved over the years but for certain industries the risks will always be high.  Firing ranges are among this list of industries for concern. Most firing ranges have multiple areas that need different degrees of air filtration.  No matter where the location, safety and lead concentration concerns should be top of mind.

Symptoms of lead poisoning could include:    

  • Headaches
  • Irritability
  • Reduced sensations
  • Aggressive behavior
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Abdominal pain
  • Poor appetite
  • Constipation
  • Anemia

Filtration areas to focus on:

Shooters Station – the highest potential for lead in the air since this is where the gun is fired

Down Range – waste dust can contaminate this area, protective gear required per OSHA guidelines

Target Area - the highest exposure of airborne particles due to bullet fragmentation, protective gear required per OSHA guidelines

Innovative Filtration Solutions for Indoor Firing Ranges

OSHA (Occupational Health and Safety Administration) requires stringent air quality standards for Indoor Firing Range facilities. Lead oxide is the bi-product of discharging a firearm. There is an increased level respiratory hazard within an enclosed building, and breathing contaminated exhaust can cause lead poisoning. 

Read how Filtration Group-HVAC air filters are engineered to exceed OSHA efficiency standards and secure indoor air quality for recreational shooters and facility occupants.
