Understanding Radiation & Shielding
We have always been exposed to natural radiation coming from the earth and outer space. This type of radiation, known as cosmic radiation or cosmic rays, usually isn’t emitted at dangerous levels. However, exposure to radioactive materials or radiography equipment causes serious health risks.
Radiation Shielded Doors & Windows
At Matter Fabs, protecting people from radiation is our passion, and we follow strict guidelines when constructing radiation shielded rooms and doors. In all the industries we work in, we work hard to understand the needs of the operators, doctors, nurses, and physicists.
Medical Radiation Shielding
Continued Education for Practicing Medical Physicists
Physicists fulfill a very important role in medical, industrial, and many other fields. Diagnostic medical physicists contribute to the effectiveness of radiological imaging procedures by assuring radiation safety and improved imaging techniques. Therapeutic medical physicists contribute to the development of therapeutic techniques, collaborate with radiation oncologists to design treatment plans, and monitor equipment and procedures […]

Cost-Effective Radiation Therapy for Veterinarians
We all want to give our beloved pets and service animals a chance at a quality life, so when this is threatened by the presence of cancerous cells, we look to the professionals for help. When a pet or service animal is diagnosed with cancer, the goal of any veterenarian is to eliminate the cancer […]
Radiation Shielding for Cancer Treatment
Matter Fabs has the perfect medical radiation shielding room solution for keeping hospital cancer treatment on schedule while a new treatment machine is being installed and until the facility changes are complete. Once the decision is made to upgrade a cancer treatment center with a new treatment machine, it unfortunately comes with a common problem […]
Matter Fabs Automated Systems for Radiographic Testing
When using Radiographic Testing (RT) for Non-Destructive Testing (NDT), a large portion of time is initially spent setting up and positioning the parts to inspect, setting the RT machine into shooting position, and setting the film into position. This process must be completed for each inspection, maneuvering and repositioning the parts for different inspection positions. […]
Matter Fabs Vault Upgrade Solution
Radiation machines used for industrial application come in a range of different power levels and are sized based on the product being inspected. As time goes on, the product being inspected can change, or a new product may be introduced, making the current machine unable to properly inspect the product to the new specifications; so, […]
What is Nondestructive Radiographic Testing (RT)?
At Matter Fabs, we provide safety solutions for nondestructive testing (NDT) using radiographic testing (RT) for a variety of industries. NDT using RT is the process of inspecting and evaluating components like casting, welds, and vessels for any problems or differences in design intent characteristics without destroying the part. The components’ entire material can be […]
Matter Fabs LMIC Vault Kit Solution
At Matter Fabs, we are committed to providing cost-effective and eco-friendly radiation shielding solutions to LMIC. LMIC stands for Low-Middle Income Countries, and these countries have a gross national income of less then $12,235 per person (also known as “developing countries”). After doing some research, we found, alarmingly, that the rate of cancer diagnoses and […]
