High-Density Concrete Blocks from MarShield™


MarShield™ high-density concrete blocks are used for radiation shielding in a variety of environments, using less space than traditional concrete construction. The versatile blocks offer reliable, cost-effi cient radiation shielding and can be used alongside other shielding materials to maximize protection in the available space. High-density concrete blocks are available as interlocking chevron-type, solid rectangular blocks and 3-core masonry units.

What Our Customers Are Saying:

MarShield™ translated our need for a shielded, radioactive sample storage cabinet into a conceptual design rapidly and effectively. The process was informal, occurred nearly realtime and clearly identifi ed how the final custom product would look and function. Construction and delivery of the cabinet beat our schedule demands, which was very impressive for a custom unit. Once installed in our laboratory, transfer of our highly radioactive samples went smoothly, allowing researchers and radiological controls staff to determine where specifi c samples are located in the cabinet. This time savings will, in the long run, save considerable dose to the research staff. The quality of workmanship, robust nature and utility of the cabinet is evident to researchers and radiological controls staff as well. The cost of the cabinet was very reasonable, considering the materials of construction, design/engineering time invested to build the unit and attention to schedule. We look forward to dealing with MarShield™ in the future for our shielding needs.
