Radiation Shielding

We have a highly experienced in-house team that provide radiation shielding design analysis and dose assessment services to cover the full project life cycle.

What is Radiation Shielding Design?

Radiation shielding design is a field of nuclear engineering that plays an integral part of a nuclear facility layout and overall design. Radiation shielding specialists use effective design of shield walls, access labyrinths, shield doors and service penetrations to protect personnel and the public from the harmful effects of exposure to ionising radiation. Optimisation of a facility’s shielding is used as part of a dose optimisation strategy designed to keep any exposures As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP).

Our Capability

Cerberus Nuclear has a highly experienced in-house team that provide radiation shielding design and dose assessment services to cover the full project design life cycle:
​• Project Commencement
• Bulk Shielding
• Detailed Design
• Shielding Verification
• Plant Modification
• Decommissioning
We use an industry accepted design process which scales from small projects to complete, large scale facility design.
We are experienced in communicating high quality, complex data produced from assessments to all stakeholders. This knowledge allows a project to make intuitive and informed decisions, which provides greater confidence and reduces overall project risk during the design process.
We are also members of the Shielding Forum (TSF), which is an industry forum intended to promote good practice and provide authoritative advice for all matters related to radiation shielding.
