“Powered” Targets: Thermal Silhouettes from IR.Tools


These are the new powered thermal targets from IR.Tools. They’re built with a decade and a half of IR-related construction and research experience, and they’re now available to the general public.

The lightweight thermal targets are heated with a proprietary technology called Fabroc. IR.Tools say Fabroc is nearly indestructible. Each target is constructed with a rubber-like material with no wires to cut or tear, and thus no worry for a short circuit caused by bullet penetration. 

Each is powered on a 12 or 24-volt battery. According to the manufacturer each will heat-efficient target will remain intact for 500 or more rounds, with a consistent thermal image and no flaring.

What makes the target so unique, IR.Tools says, is its durability. They advise that ranges at Ft. Bragg, NC have been using the same Fabroc target for nearly a decade, and quote an unnamed Range Manager there who reportedly said, 

“The unmatched number of shots it takes while maintaining a clear, realistic image to shoot is incredible.” 

Not only are these powered thermal targets an excellent option for training, but they are easy to use. Their longevity means they are cost-effective. Now you can have a safe powered thermal target that lasts during some of the more complex training options, such as shoot, no-shoot scenarios.
