Default Indoor range back stop wall help needed.

Looking for ideas on making a large arrow stop wall for the back of an indoor range, somewhere around 10' by 25'.
I have seen the home made bags and stuff, but this is for an entire wall, the thinner the better. What is normally used in a range?
Any links, suggestions or speculation would be appreciated.
Thanks!
David

If it is for a shop and you want to increase arrow sales then a 1/4" plate steel will stop any arrow

I see some type of kevlar material on e-bay for back stops from time to time

Our shop has a CMU back wall.....and the owner just LOVES it when we get to shooting tough shots on the range.

Ther is a indoor range around my house that uses celotex sub siding. They split the sheet in half and stack them flat to about 8' tall. the wall is compressd by 2X12'sand all thread pusshing down from the ceiling joists.
The wall is 24" thick then and stops all arrows but has one draw back, carbon arrows are difficult to remove. You need to soap up the arrows or use woody's arrow lube or something similar
