Sometimes, walls are not the best option or they need supplemental help when it comes to radiation shielding. Lead bricks offer existing rooms additional shielding. They come in a variety of styles and thicknesses and are beneficial to new construction because they can save space and provide stronger protection from radiation.
Lead glass and lead acrylic can be created in a range of thicknesses and serve as windows for X-ray control booths, operating theaters, and even doors.
For rooms that don’t need strong radiation protection, lead curtains may be your best bet. They come in many colors and can be customized to fit your space. Use them in a short-term location or as a privacy barrier for your patients.
