In the presentation, we will show some examples of shielding devices, how we developed them, and how we made them. In carrying out neutron scattering experiment, it is important to improve signal to noise ratio on the instrument. Even if the neutron flux becomes strong, we cannot improve the statistics of the experimental data without any reduction of the unnecessary background scattering. Thus, we have designed and produced various kinds of devices that reduce the transmission and scattering of the unwanted neutrons. For example, very thin vane in the scattering chamber made by a mixture of boron carbide powder and epoxy resin (B$$_{4}$$C-resin), direct beam catcher (see Fig.1), thermal radiation shield of aluminum with cadmium plating, and so on. These shielding devices have been installed in the surrounding of the instrument components, such as the sample, the scattering chamber, the neutron guide tube, as a measure to reduce the background.
