RF shielding systems

Soldered copper

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
  • In veterinary clinics
