Ionising Radiation Shielding

 


The use of ionising radiation in industrial and medical applications is a well established and essential part of the industrial, medical and veterinary world, however, protection is required for the safety of its operators and patients alike.

The shielding we undertake involves the use of lead or other high density material to shield against neutrons and ionising radiation within areas such as Fluoroscopy. This involves constructing walls, floors, service penetrations and doors with lead lining. Windows and static or movable viewing screens get fitted with a special lead oxide glass. Additional requirements, such as fire and acoustic ratings, can be included. We are also able to supply individual components such as radiation shielded doors and windows for installation by third parties.

European EMC Products also offer a total, consolidated service relating to the shielding and monitoring requirements associated with a variety of facilities such as Linear Accelerator (Linac) Bunkers and Proton Therapy rooms. This work includes undertaking conceptual studies, reviewing health physics issues, as well as installation and commissioning.

 

Another area we specialise in is Positron Emission Tomography (PET) / Computerised Tomography (CT) Protection - a nuclear medical imaging technique which produces a three-dimensional image or map of functional processes in the body. Our PET Shielding and CT Shielding solutions meet the requirements of the PET suite operated by the Nuclear Medicine Department.

We pride ourselves on our extensive knowledge of the design and installation of Ionising Radiation Shielding and provide a comprehensive package relating to all shielding needs.
