RF Doors

Faraday are the exclusive distributor for ETS Lindgren RF doors in Australia and New Zealand. This allows us access to the widest range of purpose built MRI doors in the market.

For most MRI suites a single, 1200mm wide, hinged door is sufficient.

Faraday features the Autoseal II, pneumatic RF door as the door of choice for all MRI RF cage applications.  Featuring a flat threshold, meaning a step-less, ramp-less transition along with exceptional acoustic attenuation, Rw 40 performance.   Faraday is the sole provider in Australia of the Autoseal door, the easiest opening/closing door on the market.

 

Specialty doors such as double doors, sliding doors, doors with windows, etc… are available, please call us to discuss your needs/requirements.

Autoseal II Door

 

The Autoseal II door is a high performance MRI door featuring pneumatically operated RF seals. Unlike traditional friction fit doors, which are high maintenance and difficult to open and close, the Autoseal II operates much like a normal office door and is virtually maintenance free.

 

The Autoseal II offers unsurpassed acoustic performance (Rw40). This significantly reduces the effects of MRI gradient noise on areas surrounding the MRI.

 

Another key feature of the Autoseal II is a completely flat threshold plate. This results in a seamless transition between the MRI control room and the scan room, improving patient comfort. Traditional MRI doors have a tapered ramp at the threshold, meaning a floor level change is required from the control room to the scan room.

 

The RF performance of the Autoseal II door makes it suitable for high frequency MRI applications. Faraday has installed these doors in MRI applications up to 9.4 Tesla.

 

Doors are key lockable and have electrical contacts available for connection to MRI supplier “door open” alarm systems.

 

A number of options are available to suit the special requirements of any MRI facility, including keypad controlled access, integrated RF windows and automatic opening/closing.

RF Doors Servicing and Repair

 

Finger type doors require regular cleaning and lubrication to ensure maximum service life and correct operation.

 

RF fingers need to be replaced periodically to ensure correct RF shielding performance.

 

Faraday can carry out maintenance and repairs on all ETS Lindgren RF doors and we carry a full inventory of spare parts to keep your door in perfect working order.

 

Faraday also stock RF fingers for older RFI Industries doors * and can perform minor services and finger strip replacement on these doors.

 

* It should be noted that the operating mechanisms for RFI Industries doors are no longer available. If failure of the mechanism occurs, a full door replacement is required.
