CRS Ballistic Rubber Meets or Exceeds Specifications

Cumberland Rubber Supply High-Density ballistic products are designed to meet or exceed the spec. Our products are designed with the desired qualities of strength, elasticity, and durability to provide longevity in the field.

Over the years, we have seen many bids that call for ballistic rubber. Many military and police installations have switched over to CRS Ballistic rubber to save time and money. Many facilities just have not had the chance to test out CRS Ballistic Rubber, and we welcome the opportunity. The majority of our customers have tested our products and made the switch.

We implore head to head competition with our competitors. Side by side tests is the best way to prove CRS Product superiority.

Here is an example range spec, and here is how CRS products meet or exceed the specification.

Example Rubber Portion of RFP Spec:

Each panel will take approximately 2000 rounds before replacement is required, depending on bullet type, concentration of shots, distribution of wear, and substrate used for backing. Panel Ballistic Rubber System as manufactured. • Must show product is successfully installed in a minimum of ten (10) existing military installations or law enforcement agencies as the main bullet stopping/ absorbing wall system. • Study showing no penetration with specific use of 7.62mm (M80 Ball) and 5.56mm (M855 Ball). • Study showing minimal ricochet at limited incidence of angle with specific use of 7.62mm (M80 Ball), 5.56mm (M855 Ball, M193 Ball) from M14 rifle, M16A2 and M16A1 rifle and the M4A1 Carbine. • Study showing bullet stopping power to 2,300 fps muzzle velocity on a 300 grain bullet striking with 3,700 foot-pounds of energy. • Encapsulates standard handgun, rifle, and frangible rounds when used with ballistic steel backing. • Panel is cold-pressed ballistic rubber product and is not vulcanized or heat treated. • Actual dimensions and weight may vary by panel. • No air gap significantly reduces airborne lead particulates and being directly attached to steel or concrete without the need for wood backing to increase durability. Reduces airborne lead particles by 99% over conventional steel plate guards. • Panel ballistic rubber surface facing can be replaced. • Ballistic Rubber passes the environmental durability freeze-thaw test in accordance with Section 8 of ASTM:C67. The ballistic rubber performs better than block concrete and equal to poured concrete. Results for weight loss were less than 0.5% breakage where product didn’t separate in two or more significant pieces, and cracking where the product didn’t develop cracks during freezing and thawing that exceeds in length the minimum dimensions of the product. • Paint will bond to Panel surface. • Product is tested and approved through the Research and Development unit • Contains UV inhibitor for outdoor use. • Testing for outdoor levels of lead dust and fume are less than OSHA PEL’s and the ACGIH TLV’s.

Lets break down the above spec:

SpecCRS Standard
Each panel will take approximately 2000 rounds before replacement is required, depending on bullet type, concentration of shots, distribution of wear, and substrate used for backing.Product meets or exceeds this spec. CRS Ballistic Rubber will outlast this by 2 to 3 times.
Must show product is successfully installed in a minimum of ten (10) existing military installations or law enforcement agencies as the main bullet stopping/ absorbing wall system.Product meets or exceeds this spec. CRS Ballistic Rubber found military and police facilities all over United States and the world.
Study showing no penetration with specific use of 7.62mm (M80 Ball) and 5.56mm (M855 Ball).Product meets or exceeds this spec.
Study showing minimal ricochet at limited incidence of angle with specific use of 7.62mm (M80 Ball), 5.56mm (M855 Ball, M193 Ball) from
M14 rifle, M16A2 and M16A1 rifle and the M4A1 Carbine.
Product meets or exceeds this spec. CRS Ballistic Rubber rate of breakdown is less than other products in the market.
Study showing bullet stopping power
to 2,300 fps muzzle velocity on a 300 grain bullet striking with 3,700 foot-pounds of energy.
Product meets or exceeds this spec.
Encapsulates standard handgun, rifle, and frangible rounds when used with ballistic steel backing.Product meets or exceeds this spec.
Panel is cold-pressed ballistic rubber product and is not vulcanized or heat treated.Product meets or exceeds this spec. CRS ballistic rubber is built using a proprietary process. Our process can be done in heat press or cold press. Our process provides extra strength to the product.
Actual dimensions and weight may vary by panel.Product meets or exceeds this spec.
CRS Ballistic products can be produced at a more reliable size and weight due to the purity of the material.
Panel ballistic rubber surface facing can be replaced.Product meets or exceeds this spec.
However, CRS Ballistic products last longer, meaning you will need to replace the parts less often.
Ballistic Rubber passes the environmental durability freeze-thaw test in accordance with Section 8 of ASTM:C67. The ballistic rubber performs better than block concrete and equal to poured concrete. Results for weight loss were less than 0.5% breakage where product didn’t separate in two or more significant pieces, and cracking where the product didn’t develop cracks during freezing and thawing that exceeds in length the minimum dimensions of the product.Product meets or exceeds this spec. CRS Ballistic products are made to handle extreme temperatures. CRS products exceed the spec.
Paint will bond to Panel surface.Product meets or exceeds this spec. Most of our competitors need to apply a flame-resistant paint to their products.
No air gap significantly reduces airborne lead particulates and being directly attached to steel or concrete without the need for wood backing to increase durability. Reduces airborne lead particles by 99% over conventional steel plate guards.Product meets or exceeds this spec. CRS Ballistic Rubber can be installed to any specification. The product reduces airborne lead particles by 99% over conventional steel plate guards.
Product is tested and approved through the Research and Development unit.Product meets or exceeds this spec.
Contains UV inhibitor for
outdoor use.
Product meets or exceeds this spec.
Testing for outdoor levels of lead dust and fume are less than OSHA PEL’s and the ACGIH TLV’s.Product meets or exceeds this spec.

Cumberland Rubber Supply ballistic panels are ideal for a wide range of benefits. These ballistic range panels and tiles are designed to provide a safe live fire environment by controlling bullets on contact, stopping ricochet, and self-healing after impact. The vulcanized rubber panels are designed for military, law enforcement, and private range use.
