High density concrete and concrete blocks are a relatively new entry into the radiation shielding product line. The poured concrete and interlocking blocks can offer a cost effective material when compared to lead for linear accelerator vaults and other applications requiring heavy lead thickness. Read More
High dose radiography rooms are often constructed on site in an area not originally designed for this high dose procedure. In this case the area can be retrofit to provide the required shielding by adding lead and structural supports for the walls and ceiling if required.
Linear accelerator installations and upgrades require in many cases significant thicknesses of concrete and lead in order to protect persons not in the actual treatment area from stray emissions from the activated equipment. Read More
The illustration above shows the relative eye levels of various heights of individuals standing and sitting with the top of the window frame set to match the 86" overall height of a 7'-0" door frame. A 48" piece of glass will bring the bottom of the window well below eye level and add cost without function. Read More
Lead glass is utilized in medical and industrial applications so that the operator can view the part or patient without being exposed to radiation. In most cases, the radiation attenuation of the glass must be a least equal to the wall or barrier in which the window is located. Lead acrylic material can also be used for viewing applications.
