By installing a number of grilles at a shooting range, Gilberts have created a clean and still atmosphere, perfect for the pastime.
Gilberts Technical Director Roy Jones and his team devised a solution whereby a floor to ceiling wall of grilles was constructed in front of the entrance and observation gallery, to provide a laminar flow down the length of the shooting range, with all of the air travelling in one direction, away from clients.
“It was quite a challenge, to ensure the guests and potential purchasers enjoyed a safe, comfortable atmosphere, with appropriate levels of fresh air, and air quality, against anything which could disturb the flow and accuracy of the bullets as weapons were discharged,” said Roy.
“The airflow pattern was essential to avoid any disturbance of the bullet’s travel through the air,” added Roy.
“Typically we would vent a space from the ceiling down,
which obviously would impact on the flight path, and potentially create turbulence, which needed to be avoided at all costs!”
An even wall of air at the shooting line was the desired objective; however, that potentially created ‘dead zones’ where the doors and viewing windows did not allow air entry.
