Annual inspections can extend the life of RF doors

Envirotect’s RF doors are designed to provide a reliable, low maintenance service for use in the most demanding MRI facilities.  To minimise interruptions to services that can be caused by issues with an RF door and to extend its life, Envirotect offers annual inspections, services and repairs.

Annual inspections consist of a full examination of the whole door system including the general condition of the frame and door face, door seal, latch system, hinges, door closers and contact fingers. 

“Finger and gasket type doors require regular professional cleaning and lubrication to ensure maximum service life and correct operation,” says Envirotect.  “Periodically the RF fingers or the gasket will require replacing to maintain the best shielding performance and we can replace these parts on a range of doors.”

Inspections can be scheduled around busy periods to avoid disruption and after the inspection the company will submit a report including any recommendations to enhance the service life of the RF door.

MRI contracts manager Howard Nutkins said: “Since offering this service, Envirotect has several customers returning for annual door inspections.  Once the inspection has been completed customers regularly comment on how much easier the RF door is to handle”
