A.L.M. Consulting Engineers has the technical expertise and experience to provide mechanical engineering designs that will meet your client’s needs along with health and environmental requirements for indoor shooting ranges.  Indoor shooting ranges provide unique mechanical engineering challenges that differ from most other projects.  The mechanical engineer needs to design a ventilating system that will remove the lead (from the discharge of the weapon) away from the shooter/occupants breathing zone as quickly as possible, maintain a comfortable temperature in the range and exhaust the contaminated air into the atmosphere to meet the requirements of the environmental protection agency (EPA).  There are indoor shooting range studies written by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) that provide guidelines that should be adhered to.
