Designing, Fabricating, and Installing Accelerator Room Doors for Cancer Care Centre

Mars Metal was contracted by a large commercial construction company to build accelerator doors for a cancer care facility in Washington, USA. We were brought on board due to our expertise in fabricating and installing accelerator doors. What made this particular project unique was that one door was to be installed immediately to get an accelerator room operational and the second door was to be installed at a later date. We began the fabrication process working with the physics report provided by the customer to custom design a set of doors. Adjustments were made on our approval drawings and the doors were designed to the customer’s exact specifications to ensure installation on-site would be smooth.

Cleaning Outdoor Products

Cleanliness is one of the most critical elements for your home or business today. Public areas or high touch areas require routine cleaning and disinfecting of surfaces to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19. While the CDC recommends using diluted bleach solutions, many materials may have a negative effect from applying bleach. The TerraCast® resin material is safe for applying bleach. Unlike other materials, our planters will not fade or degrade when disinfecting surfaces. They are a great solution to businesses to separate areas to allow for social distancing, without unsightly barriers or high maintenance work.

Designing Bird-Friendly Facades with Translucent Panel Systems

Designing Bird-Friendly Facades with Translucent Panel Systems

Birds play an integral role in preserving the world’s ecosystem – dispersing seeds, pollinating plants, and controlling rodent populations. By consuming enormous amounts of insects, birds also reduce insect damage to crops and forests and lower the transmission of diseases such as malaria and West Nile virus. But as the built environment expands, so does the danger to birds. Since 1970, scientists have tracked a nearly 30% decline in North American bird populations with about 25% of species now being listed on the US Watch List of birds that require conservation to avoid becoming threatened or endangered. And one of the leading contributors to this continued drop in bird populations is collisions with human construction.
