Problematic outdoor soil berms can prove to be a persistent headache for range users and range owners, causing shorter cycles between lead mining events, accelerated erosion, and even the potentially dangerous occurrences of bullets skipping over the berms. An incorrectly designed berm can not only pose safety risks and operational disruptions to range users/owners, but may also negatively impact neighbors and subject range owners/operators to non-compliance challenges with Local, State, and Federal regulations.
MT2 Firing Range Experts’ primary objective is to address shooting berm issues comprehensively by delivering a customized solution tailored specifically to your site and unique requirements.
Our approach centers on optimizing the customer’s berm, resulting in minimized maintenance requirements with maximized berm performance and lifespan. By partnering with MT2 Firing Range Experts, clients can expect a comprehensive resolution to their berm-related challenges, allowing them to focus on their core operations with confidence and peace of mind.
Optiberm™ places a strong emphasis on four key aspects to effectively enhance the customer’s berm:
1. Berm Dimensions and Geometry: By meticulously analyzing the dimensions and geometry of the berm, Optiberm™ aims to optimize these factors to minimize the need for frequent maintenance. Our team ensures that the berm is designed in a manner that maximizes its performance and lifespan.
2. Berm Soil Composition: Optiberm™ recognizes the critical role played by soil composition in berm stability. Through careful evaluation and tailored recommendations, we address any issues related to soil composition, ultimately enhancing the overall performance and longevity of the berm.
3. Lead Leachability: The potential leaching of lead from berms can have detrimental effects, both environmentally and operationally. Optiberm™ prioritizes the mitigation of lead leachability, implementing strategies to minimize its occurrence and impact. This proactive approach safeguards the environment and maintains the integrity of the berm.
4. Vegetation or Artificial Erosion Inhibitors: Erosion presents a significant challenge for berms, leading to accelerated deterioration. Optiberm™ utilizes advanced techniques, whether through vegetation or artificial erosion inhibitors, to ensure effective erosion control. By implementing these measures, we can significantly reduce, if not eliminate erosion-related issues and safeguard the stability of the berm.
