MiniTec uses profile system to build a bespoke test room

04 February 2016

MiniTec UK has secured a contract with Magnetic Shields to design and build a low-frequency magnetically shielded room for researchers at the University of Vienna.

MiniTec and Magnetic Shields worked together to design and manufacture a 3m x 3m x 2m high shielded room for the University of Vienna who conduct research into the properties of magnetic fields and their influence on the working environment.

The MiniTec aluminium profile system was selected because of its robustness compared with other systems available and the simplicity of installation coupled with the comprehensive
range of accessories available.

Once the framework was complete it was clad with Mumetal, a highly permeable material, which serves to absorb the magnetic field and re-direct it away from the interior of the room.

The drastically reduced magnetic field inside the room allows experiments to be carried out without unwanted magnetic interference.
