RPP’s swing radiation shielding doors (neutron doors) are constructed with ¼" thick A-36 steel face plates. A-36 steel flat bars are used for the stiles and the reinforcement inside the door (See details.) Flat bar thicknesses for the stiles and reinforcement are dictated by the core of the door. The core of the door will consist of the shielding requirements (typically lead and borated polyethylene) as determined by a licensed physicist. We can also design the door with extra space inside for future upgrades which may require more shielding. The door finish is completed in the factory with a paint grade primer. RPP offers safety features for radiation shielding doors (neutron doors) such as motion sensors, pressure sensitive tape, and battery backup. Our RPP designed frames for neutron swing door systems are constructed with ¼" thick A-36 steel. Five gussets at ¼" thick and five pieces of bent flat bar steel at ½" thick are welded to the jambs (see detail-link). This reinforcement ensures longevity for the radiation shielding door (neutron door) and prevents misalignment between each of the hinges. The gussets have a dowel system to allow the concrete to set securely to the frame when poured. This RPP designed framing system is the most durable available.
