FlexTact™

Having designed FlexTact™ within a project in Fort Wayne, Indiana previouly, the Schenkel Shultz design team again chose FlexTact for the new Wake Tech Community College Public Safety Training Academy. The facility is the only community college in North Carolina to hold the CALEA® accreditation. This accreditation strengthens the academy’s accountability through a continuum of standards that clearly define authority, performance, and responsibilities. The law enforcement program can enhance their active shooter and force-on-force training programs by using the flexible spaces created fast and efficiently with FlexTact.

The 40’ x 52’ overhead grid allows the walls to be reconfigured into an almost endless number of room scenarios. The Wake Tech facility included many enhancements to the FlexTact system. The designers chose to install a dark, marbled high pressure laminate on the walls that helps to diffuse the backgrounds during exercises. In addition, the system is equipped with overhead cameras that record training sessions for playback with trainees. Immediate feedback and review helps to demonstrate corrective actions for trainees.

High liability entries are almost always performed in loud conditions.As such, WTCC installed overhead lighting and audio systems to replicate true environmental simulations that increase the realism of the training sessions.  In additon, WTCC installed a series of Nottaline foam furnishings.
