Specialised facilities for shooting or firing practice can be an annoyance for those who live within hearing range. Either indoors or outdoors, these shooting ranges accommodate a range of firing weapons, from handguns to rifles to shotguns.
Indoor facilities have to follow certain construction and safety guidelines to protect users and the general public. Apart from the noise levels, other factors have to be carefully assessed, such as the levels of ventilations. Lead poisoning from cartridges is a major concern, as is lead dust from bullets.
Again, meticulous care has to be employed for outdoor shooting ranges. Noise is a big concern especially if the range is sited near a residential area.
Clay pigeon shooting is a popular pastime but one that can cause major irritation to neighbouring environments. Similarly MoD testing sites can be a problem when shooting is involved.
Any site, indoor or outdoor which is used for the purpose of firing weapons, must meet strict criteria in terms of noise and emission pollution. If you feel that noise levels from shooting ranges are affecting you adversely, simply contact The Environmental Testing Company and let us check it out for you.
