We are following the guidance of British Shooting organisatiion who recommend it for .177 we are not giving any advice on the use of the curtains ourselves and the material is not officially tested for any calibre of gun specifically. We are aware people do use the curtains with .22 weapons but if you choose to do so it is your responsibility to test and ensure the safety of your range.

We offer no certified performance for this material for this end use.

A 10m wide curtain weighs approx. 8kg. We would advise curtains to be under 15m in length due to the handling and weight of the material.

All curtains are made to order, we don’t hold stock. We aim to manufacture and dispatch your curtain within 4 weeks from receipt of full order details and subject to payment being received.

The fabric has a coating that looks blue in colour. The whiter/paler side is the fabric face that should be shot at, facing inside the range.

No – we only supply by the full metre, all with a drop of 2.35m.

No – DC only manufacture finished curtains as standard design with eyelet header and hemmed by the full metre width.

We do not send out free samples, however, we can send you 1m width of fabric but there is a charge for this. It costs £30 which includes shipping and VAT.

The lifespan of the curtain is dependent on the amount of wear and tear from the user. When the curtain is showing signs of damage a replacement should be considered.

Each curtain is supplied in a carry / storage bag. We recommend you store in a cool dry place in the bag when not in use.

DC do not sell any other rifle range equipment. We only sell the backstop curtains. There is some information on equipment supplies on the British Shooting website found here:

We would not recommend the use of other weaponry with the backstop curtain. The use of any other weaponry is at the users own risk.

Yes, of course. If you would like to collect from our factory please inform us of this when placing our order and we won’t charge you the delivery charge on the invoice. Once your order is ready we will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection.

Yes, we do. Please contact us with your full delivery address and we can arrange a shipping quote for using DHL.

No, sorry, we don’t accept returns.


Defence Composites Review
DC-R200 Backstop Safety Curtains
5/ 5
I just wanted to write and thank you for all the help Defence Composites have given Hamble Sea Scouts in the manufacturing of our outdoor ballistic curtains. The curtains are perfect and make the outdoor area safe for shooting. We have had many comments saying how good they are and we are able to set up the outdoor range in just 10 minutes. Again, thank you to everyone at Defence Composites who helped this happen. You have been instrumental in helping us to get our young people back meeting outdoors again in a safe and secure way.

We purchased two rifle backdrop curtains, which we have now used several times. I am always pleased at how easy it is to set up and put way. The whole process from making the first enquiry to receiving the finished items was excellent. Was really pleased with Lucy’s follow up and timely response.
