The best way to minimize rounds being fired over the top of shoot house walls and leaving the structure is to ensure proper facility design, target and shooter placement, and have other administrative controls in place.  Ceilings or roofs can be of value when the shoot house is required for year-round use in areas with severe weather conditions or when the shoot house is not in an approved surface danger zone (SDZ).

A roof or canopy doesn’t provide a SDZ but it will minimize outside light influences, offers protection from the weather, and provides a super-structure for installing lighting, ventilation fans, or other systems.

A fully enclosed shoot house with a ballistic ceiling provides a 360-degree surface danger zone (SDZ) but will require lighting and must have adequate ventilation to control airborne lead contaminants.

Regardless of your needs, Range Systems can design the proper ceiling or roofs to suit your requirements.
