These units are usually made of lead sandwiched between steel panels over a “Uni-strut” frame. They can be made with a simple single door which is manually operated, or air and motor operated, multiple doors for production use. Size is generally dictated by the size of the part and target to film distance.
HIGH DENSITY CONCRETE
High density concrete and concrete blocks are a relatively new entry into the radiation shielding product line. The poured concrete and interlocking blocks can offer a cost effective material when compared to lead for linear accelerator vaults and other applications requiring heavy lead thickness.
