Shielding Design & Integrity

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 was 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

easy. When we need a shielding design,

DTC is who we call.”
