Designing Radiation Shielding for NDT and Other Industries

Our lives are impacted by industrial x-ray and Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) as they play a crucial role in ensuring safety and reliability of everything from aircraft parts, to bridges and power stations.

However, this also puts equipment operators and sensitive components at risk of being exposed to harmful radiation. MarShield designs and manufactures custom modular radiation shielding rooms, protecting all stakeholders by maintaining a safe work-place environment.

Key Features in Design and Construction

Our modular shielded rooms meet all mandated ALARA (As Low as Reasonably Achievable) goals. They can be custom designed to meet your required needs. The panels can be extended from the floor to 84”, 96”, or higher, ensuring effective protection. Clients can choose their lead shielding thickness, up to 0.125” lead. Our solid panels come lead lined and faced with beige ABS.

Additional NDT Room Features

  • The units are fitted with sliding doors with additional hardware pre-installed.
  • Windows can be installed in door or wall panels when necessary.
  • Shatter-resistant lead safety class (meeting requirements of ANSI Z97.1-1984 & 16 CFR 1201 cat. !!) can be added to the structure.
  • Shielded electrical ports can be added as per your specifications.

Benefits of Radiation Shielded Rooms

MarShield creates a fully customized radiation room as per the client’s architectural specifications. We work with you to design a custom solution in a virtual CAD environment. Our rooms are completely adaptable to accommodate future modifications.

Additional Room Benefits Include:

• Panel walls come prefabricated for easy installation.
• No demolition or original construction is required for room installation.
• Attractive natural décor with clean construction lines.
• Professional engineering services available.

Additional Products Available:

Lead Curtains

Our lead curtains are tailored to meet client specifications. They offer an economical solution, providing protection in areas where low-level radiation is present, and a permanent wall is not practical. The curtains are available in a variety of lead equivalencies, colours, sizes, and configurations.

Non-Lead Alternatives

We also offer non-lead alternative shielding solutions in the form of T-Flex shielding which uses Tungsten, Bismuth and Iron-based material, and Nanotek technology which is non-toxic and eco-friendly.
