Shielding diagram


Health Physics Northwest works with facilities, architects and contractors to maintain regulatory compliance in the design and building of radiation rooms. Quick, accurate and comprehensive shielding recommendations are completed by experienced physicists and satisfy all regulatory requirements.

Construction surveys are offered to verify that shielding material is installed in the recommended amounts and locations and in accordance with standard application methods. Post-construction radiation surveys are done to verify correct installation of shielding materials and to verify that radiation exposure in adjacent areas is in compliance with regulatory dose limits and in agreement with radiation shielding recommendations.

Radiation shielding application details are available and provide detailed construction guidelines.

Choose the appropriate radiation shielding questionnaire for your application; fill it out on line and send to HPNW for a quick and complete evaluation.
