Shielded doors boost safety & match hospital decor

Bedfordshire-based shielding company Envirotect Limited has supplied structural radiation protection for a CT scanner room at Stoke Mandeville Hospital near Aylesbury.

Working on behalf of Canute, Envirotect’s contract involved the complete room shielding including walls, soffit, door sets and an observation window.

The soffit was shielded with lead plywood and the walls with lead plasterboard to provide a shielded envelope for the room.

Door sets were manufactured to match the hospital’s scheme of steamed beech doors and painted frames which are being rolled out across the department. Envirotect also supplied and fitted the ironmongery.

The installation of a large lead glass observation window in the control room will give clear views of the CT scanner and patients for radiographers.
