Lead roll shielding is typically utilized for imaging modalities such as Computed Tomography (CT), Ultrasound, and X-Ray. Lead rolls are used in lieu of lead lined gypsum to increase the efficiency of installation. This method has shown to be significantly cheaper, as well as dramatically reducing the installation time.
Lead panel shielding is typically used for Positron Emission Tomography (PET) suites. The assembly consists of lead sheet laminated to 3/4” plywood and are individually fastened to the parent wall. Panels butt against adjacent panels and seam strips are utilized at all joints to ensure a leak free environment.
Power, signal, and communication lines need to run through a power filter. Electrical filters eliminate the unwanted RF signals by displacing them to ground. Every conductor which penetrates the shield, including neutral and signal return lines, must be filtered. Grounding wires must be bonded directly to the shield via the ground buss bar.
Our lead lined solid core wood doors are manufactured utilizing two distinct techniques depending on the thickness of shielding required. Lead between 1/32” thick to 1/4” thick is constructed by laminating two pieces of uninterrupted lead sheets to either side of the wood core.
Lead between 1/4” thick to 1/2”thick is constructed by laminating uninterrupted lead sheet between the wood cores and securely fastened with lead covered bolts. In both door designs, all standard architectural hardware are allowed and both doors are available in a range of wood or custom veneers.
Our lead lined hollow metal doors are available in 16, 14, or 12 gauge galvanneal and 16 or 14 gauge stainless steel, with an uninterrupted lead sheet ranging from 1/32” thick to 1/2” thick a sheet of high density polystyrene.
Lead glazing is used in medical applications for observing equipment during X-ray, CT, and PET scans. Lead glass protects doctors and staff from radiation with minimal discoloration of the glass or deterioration in viewing quality.
The glass is made of high quality optical grade material, offering excellent radiation protection and high light transmittance. The surfaces are hard, polished surfaces which offer greater scratch resistance and superior visual clarity
