For Graham Engineering Corporation’s project, Radiation Protection Products fabricated and installed a bi-parting, sliding x-ray door. The two leaves of the door each weigh roughly 5,000 pounds, and measure 9.25’ wide by 20’ high. Radiation Protection Products also installed a heated top rail, a unique feature designed to ensure that the door will open and close properly in upstate New York’s often snowy winter weather.

Graham Engineering Corporation is the global standard in wheel and industrial extrusion blow molding solutions, known worldwide for the quality, reliability, and productivity of their technology.

General contractor on the construction of Graham Engineering’s imaging hangar was Manning Squires Hennig Co., Inc., of Batavia, New York.
