This decision is contingent on site-specific requirements based on fit, shielding requirements, structural considerations, modularity and price. Generally speaking, the denser a shielding material is, the more expensive it will be.

“There are times when a single shielding material is the best solution and other conditions where a composite is the more optimal approach,” said LeBlanc. “If the site conditions allow for a specific amount of space to design and install a shielding solution, the objective is to utilize the lowest cost materials to solve the radiation shielding requirements.”
