To maintain staff and the public dose to radiation as low as reasonably achievable (ALARA) it may be necessary to install shielding to reduce radiation levels.
DTC staff can assist you or your architect with a shielding design before you renovate existing spaces, or build new facilities. We can also test the shielding after it is installed to assure you of a proper installation.

timing assure that our projects are done on
time and right the first time. They take the
time to understand the issues and don’t over
