CONTAINMENT FOR FIRING RANGES


Ballistic and fire testing has demonstrated that the Octagon Defence BDS -1 Defence Block is a highly effective and fire safe ballistic containment system for indoor and outdoor range applications up to .50 calibre, including tracer and Chinese A/P rounds.

The BDS-1 blocks are made with a unique polymer binder. The finished block has an elasticity which will decelerate and trap all small arms projectiles without flaking or chipping.  Made from a non-biodegradable (but recycleable) material, these self-healing blocks will far outlast any other ballistic defence structure on the market today.

The patented Octagon Defence self-interlocking modular system requires no plastic links, clamps, fill materials, or flammable adhesives and seals, and can be constructed as vertical or flemish courses interlocking lengthwise and vertically for excellent strength

and practically seamless fit. The BDS-1 can be constructed upright or sloped at an angle without loss of containment performance.  Because of this simplicity of construction, changes to configuration, disassembly, and self-replacement becomes possible by range operatives, with minimal manpower and resources.

The modular system and ease of reconfiguration means the BDS-1 defence blocks can be reversed or repositioned periodically, to even out wear and tear, without full refurbishment - thus significantly increasing longevity. Containment walls can also be easily be assembled and disassembled for use at displays, shooting competitions and sporting events such as the modern pentathlon. Walls can be double or even triple-skinned for special requirements such as ballistic testing facilities.

The BDS-1 mobile range stand allows blocks to be used as a mobile bullet trap for temporary outdoor, mobile and containerised firing ranges, singly or side-by-side.

As well as the standard 'tyre black' finish, the BDS-1 Ballistic Defence Block can be produced in many flat colours and disruptive patterns to suit specific range needs.

The BDS-1 is manufactured to ISO:9000 compliance from 100% recycled vehicle tyres and when spent, blocks can be recovered and the spent blocks recycled by the same process - making this a very environmentally-friendly option.

Production is led by a team of experienced engineers and innovators who work closely together to ensure the very finest quality product for your project. Our process is flexible, allowing a fast response to custom requirrments for military, civil, sporting, and private ranges, as well as many other ballistic containment needs (shown below).
