Description

ETS-Lindgren’s Copper RF Shielding uses both a superior RF attenuator and the durability of bolted, light weight modular panels to ensure reliable performance.

Description

This modular frame construction is wrapped with electroplated copper which can conform to any design criteria. The engineered and bolted system enhances RF integrity with wide 4.4 cm (1 3/4″) seams that are highly compressed, offering a seamless shield surface. Interior fasteners do not have to penetrate the shield surface by design, which enhances the long term life of the shield.

Features

The MR-Cu Shield utilizes pure electrically deposited copper as the RF attenuator. This copper system offers superior electrical and metallurgical properties. The light weight panels further enhance constructability in any architectural design. This shielding system provides RF attenuation levels greater than 100 dB up to MR frequencies of 400 MHz (9.4 Tesla).

The free standing RF walls are an important consideration with regard to acoustic and seismic concerns. Because the walls are structurally independent from the parent walls of the MRI suite, there is an inherent acoustic envelope surrounding the room. Structurally independent walls also provide a unique seismic component and are not subjected to the same seismic forces as the parent structure.

The light weight ceiling panels (1.1 kg/sq. ft or 2.4 lbs/sq. ft.) reduce the gravity and dead loads that would be applied to the overhead structures. Additionally, overhead spanning beams can be employed without the use of heavy structural members.

Factory engineered and fabricated RF shield panels offer enormous flexibility in architectural design. Contractor friendly interiors allow for the addition of interior finishes and all utilities without penetration of the RF shield surface, assuring long term high performance.

Applications

Any diagnostic MRI suite RF Floors and Windows

The MR-Cu Shield is available with two types of RF flooring systems. The modular design of the shield adapts to both a standard modular panel floor and a patented monolithic epoxy/grout RF floor. The wood core, modular panel floor is ubiquitous within the MR shielding industry. The patented monolithic floor offers the additional enhancements of water resistance, low vertical profile, and a machinery grout surface for the installation of all types of floor finishes.

Utilizing our ClearShield™ line of window systems, the MR-Cu Shield is easily adapted to large interior or exterior window assemblies. Magnet entry panels are a standard feature and provide for easy removal and reinstallation to the inherent bolted design of the modular wall and ceiling panels.
