Lead Sheet for Radiation Protection Shielding

Lead Sheet Gravita
Lead Sheets
Lead sheets are used for permanent shield installations. Lead sheets can be easily bent, shaped and formed for use in many applications. Commonly used medical radiation construction projects, sheet lead can be built into walls, doors and frames to protect medical personnel from gamma rays. It can also be used to stop radiation leakage from cut-outs and penetrations in lead-lined walls.

Sheet lead that is bonded to other materials such as wood, steel, wallboard, plastic, and aluminum for the manufacture of panels, doors, cabinets, portable screens, etc., is known as lead laminate. It is frequently
used because of its self-supporting nature and greater ease in erecting and handling. Lead laminates can be produced in any practical size to comply with the user's requirements. They are especially suitable for the erection of rooms or sections in industrial plants or other buildings as they can be easily assembled by normal construction methods.

Lead sheet and various lead laminates may be used in some applications of portable shielding where the erection of a lead brick wall is not the most convenient method. Such specially designed shields are used in medical and industrial applications of radioactive isotopes.
