Hinged Lead Lined Doors
Radiation doors are essential for the safety of both medical staff and patients to prevent unwanted exposure to stray radiation coming from x-ray sources and nuclear medicine.
Radiation Sheild Doors (X-Ray Doors)
Unsafe exposure to radiation can have an array of negative impacts on the health of your building occupants. This can range from nausea and skin irritation through to nerve damage and cancer. Radiation shielding for doors can provide a vital layer of protection on your doors to keep staff, clients and the general public safe from radiation.
For applications which require you to see into a room once the door is closed, viewing panels can be added to our x-ray doors. The windows feature radiation glass with an appropriate lead-lined mounting frame. Rigorous testing has proven that the addition of these radiation windows does not reduce the radiation shielding performance of the door.
Why Is Lead Used for Radiation Shielding?
When it comes to radiation shielding, lead is the preferred metal. It can be used to shield a number of types of radiation including x-rays, gamma rays and other types of nuclear radiation. Lead provides superior protection from radiation thanks to its dense structure, stable isotopes and high atomic number. Lead is also highly ductile and malleable, allowing for appreciable flexibility in application. This means processing lead is relatively simple and cost-effective and we are able to manufacture adaptable and functional products with it.
Who Uses Radiation Shielding?
Using radiation shielded doors has become an essential part of the health and safety strategy for many businesses, including the following.
Radiology and X-Ray Facilities
Nuclear Power Operations
Viewing panels can be added to radiation doors without reducing performance. They feature radiation glass with an appropriate lead-lined mounting frame.
X-Ray doors are lined with lead and provide protection from radiation coming from x-ray sources and nuclear medicine. Unsafe or excess exposure to radiation can result in an array of negative impacts on the health of your building occupants. This can range from nausea and skin irritation through to nerve damage and cancer. Radiation shielded doors provide a vital layer of protection to keep staff, clients and the general public safe.
