The ARCAT Spec Wizard guides you through the selecting and configuring of Radiation Protection products. It then assembles a specification in the CSI 3-Part Format, based on the decisions you made when selecting and configuring the product. You can then download the specification for your project and your office master. To produce a prompt and complete specification, start the SpecWizard.

Material Designations
When radiation protection is required, it is extremely important to have the designation for this material documented as clearly as possible on your drawings.

Floor plans specifying lead shielding requirements are the most concise method of designating material desired (see example on right).

To further simplify and clarify your radiation shielding requirements, and to eliminate confusion during installation, lead requirements should be specified in increments of .5mm (1/64") for all practical purposes, with a minimum thickness of .8mm (1/32"). Upon receiving the Physicist report for shielding requirements, always round up to the .5mm thickness.

Consideration should also be given to having only one manufacturer of radiation protection material. This way there is a single firm responsible for any questions that may arise concerning radiation protection.

Radiation Protection Products, Inc., as a manufacturer, has the capabilities to manufacture any and all radiation protection products which may be required. With materials specified "as manufactured by Radiation Protection Products, Inc.," you are assured of the best possible job coordination and that you are dealing with a major producer of radiation shielding material.
