RF shielding systems

Soldered copper

Système de blindage contre les radiofréquences22222

Used since the early 1990s, copper modular panels provide durable shielding and exceptional performance. Composed of MDF panels laminated with copper sheets on one side and aluminum on the other, this system meets the strictest requirements in terms of shielding against radio frequencies.

The panels are joined with lead solder. The copper panels are attached to a freestanding steel structure, making the system structurally-independent from the rest of the building.

Uses of soldered copper shielding

  • Radio frequency (RF) shielding for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • For laboratories, test rooms, and research centres
  • For data centre, security, police, and military applications

Benefits of soldered copper shielding

  • Independent self-supporting structure
  • Excellent acoustic performance
  • Durable welds
  • Industry-proven solution
  • SDI Canada 15-year warranty

Technical features

  • Rigid ½” copper laminated MDF modular panels on the room’s interior wall
  • Lead solder joint system
  • Self-supporting steel structure independent of the building structure
