Shooting ranges and public order facilities
ECC design and build ranges and shoot houses CQB to encompass a variety of customer needs. The necessity for cleaner, environmentally friendly ranges is addressed by way of the reclining Grantrap. The Grantrap is constructed with a steel chassis which is overlaid with a rubber composite known as GranTex. The key advantage of using GranTex is that the majority of bullets are captured intact, therefore minimising lead pollution often associated with ranges. Regular re-cycling of the GranTex ensures there is very little contaminated material produced thus eliminating the requirement for landfill disposal.
The ECC Grantrap can be installed as a direct replacement for a sand trap and as it is manufactured with a galvanised chassis, will offer many years of trouble free service.

Ballistic forensic facilities
The National Ballistics Intelligence Services is the first of several forensic examination facilities to be designed and built by the ECC team. The facility combines state of the art forensic laboratories and offices with ballistic recovery equipment manufactured and supplied by ourselves. The external appearance of the building has been sympathetically designed so as not to cause a negative impact on its surroundings.
