Sellsheet Information


The standard, outpatient HDR Treatment has an overall footprint size of approximately 80 square feet. The overall footprint on the other models and any custom enclosures may be more.


Typically the unit requires a minimum of 10′ vertical height (anything below this needs a feasibility review).

A power and physics port can be located almost anywhere on the unit. Typically, it is located on the end panels and closest to the control station. Wiring, calling, ductwork, mechanical access, HVAC, and electrical are brought into the enclosure through a ceiling port.


With all finish work, the interior height of the enclosure is 84″.
