RBC Shield, LLC

"The Complete WMD Protection Solution"

PROTECTIVE COMPONENTS: STRUCTURES & COMPOSITION

Tiles Or Panels: The panels or tiles are the basic building block of the RBC shelter-in-place (SIP). They form the protective layer for the walls, the ceiling, and even the floor if warranted by the location.

The structure and composition of the tiles enable them to be custom made with more or less radiation shielding, depending upon the user's assessment of the risk.

This same structure and composition also permit larger tiles to be easily manufactured for the professional builder who will appreciate the reduced fabrication and installation costs associated with using larger tiles.

The beveled edges of the tiles enable them to be easily sealed by the user or builder to ensure that biological and chemical agents can't penetrate the shelter.

And with permanent or removal tile mounting systems, the user has the option of taking the tiles when they go!

To see how the tiles are put together and how they provide their Radiological, Biological and Chemical shielding, review the following videos:

Corner & Edge Protection: Without added protection, the corners and the edges where walls, floors and ceilings join each other present opportunities for radiological, biological, or chemical hazards to penetrate a shelter-in- place. The RBC Shield, LLC Patent Diagrams address this issue by providing lead-lined, self-adhesive molding that can be easily and quickly installed and then sealed with standard household caulking to ensure the same level of protection as the RBC Shield® tiles. View the following videos to see how the corner and edge protection is provided:

Ceiling Protection: Radiation toxic chemicals, and biological pathogens do the most damage and affect the greatest numbers of people when they form a persistent cloud and are wind-driven. In such a scenario, the toxic cloud settles over and on buildings and accumulates. Taller buildings will, however, provide layers of protection from the toxic cloud and lessen the need of ceiling protection for shelters that are located on lower levels. But single- story homes, stores, schools, offices and similar structures are much more vulnerable to penetration of persistent toxins through the ceilings. Without added protection, the ceilings present opportunities for radiological, biological, or chemical hazards to penetrate a shelter-in-place. The RBC Shield, LLC Patent addresses this issue by incorporating a specially designed ceiling mount for the ceiling tiles. Utilization of this ceiling tile mounting system enables the ceiling and wall tiles to be fully integrated with the lead- lined, self-adhesive molding, thereby providing a fully shielded shelter-in- place. The diagram and video below show two methods of attaching ceiling tiles:
