Overview: Radiation Protection Products manufactures and distributes a full line of radiation shielding products and industrial lead products. They include lead lined doors, lead lined drywall (otherwise known as lead lined sheetrock or lead lined gypsum wallboard) and lead lined plywood, leaded x-ray glass and acrylic, lead lined frames for borrowed lights and doors, pass boxes, and many other industrial lead products.
Lead Lined Drywall (also referred to as lead lined sheetrock or lead lined gypsum) is supplied with lead lining bonded to 1/2" or 5/8" drywall. Custom sizes for lead lined drywall are quoted upon request. We also provide lead lining bonded to specialty drywall such as moisture and mold resistant board. Lead Lined Drywall (lead lined sheetrock, lead lined gypsum wallboard) is supplied with 2" strips of the same lead thickness and height and 3/8" diameter lead discs.
This leak-proof, lead angle system provides complete coverage of gamma rays... and eliminates LEAD STRIPS and DISCS for all lead lined drywall (lead lined sheetrock, lead lined gypsum wallboard) and lead lined plywood applications.
Radiation Protection Products' specially designed leaded x-ray safety glass consists of 1.6 mm leaded x-ray glass laminated to a piece of clear float. This design will help meet state specifications requiring both safety properties and lead properties in all vision panels (e.g., door lites, side lites, etc.).
Standard Steel Telescopic Lead Lined Frames match our Hollow Metal Door Frames. These lead lined window frames can be manufactured to accept any thickness of leaded x-ray glass or acrylic. Standard Steel Telescopic Frames can be steel braced for maximum strength.
Radiation Protection Products' lead lined doors are manufactured using only the finest materials and workmanship available. With constant quality control and ongoing inspection, you are assured of receiving the strongest and most functional lead lined doors possible.
Radiation Protection Products' standard lead lined door frames consist of 16-gauge steel, a 2" face, and a 4-7/8" throat. The lead lined door frames are set up and welded. 2-1/4" angle irons and anchor bolts are provided for securing the frame. These lead lined door frames can accommodate a lead lining up to 1/2". Lead lined door frames outside this specification can be manufactured upon request.
Pre-hung lead lined doors might be the answer for that special job. Radiation Protection Products, Inc. can supply you the lead lined door, lead lined door frame, hinges, lock or latch set and all the accessories in one package.
The space-saving design of our Direct-Shielding sliding neutron doors has revolutionized accelerator room configuration. Our compact Direct-Shielded door eliminates the need for the traditional concrete maze floor plan. Our neutron sliding door allows for a smaller vault size, freezing up valuable space for other center functions. Other benefits include closer patient contact and smoother patient flow.
Radiation Protection Products uses only the purest lead available for our Sheet Lead. Absolutely no refining takes place at our facility, making us one of the cleanest, most environmentally friendly radiation shielding providers in the industry, providing you with the highest quality sheet lead available.
When mobile shielding is required, Radiation Protection Products has cost-effective, mobile x-ray barriers available for your specifications, and can produce them expediently to meet your deadlines. We can custom manufacture an x-ray barrier to meet your design specifications.
Lead sheet serves as the ideal sound barrier (attenuator) because it is both dense and limp. Other acoustical materials in its sound transmission class can be applied in greater thicknesses in an attempt to achieve the same transmission loss, but there is a point at which they gain stiffness that negates the effectiveness of their density.
Advantages of using lead for sound attenuation include:
Radiation Protection Products' custom fabricated lead roof flashings consist of a lead pipe boot burned to a sheet lead base. To seal to the vent pipe, simply roll the open end of the malleable lead boot to the inside of vent pipe.
The Standard weights of lead are 2½, 3 and 4 lb. Heavier weights (6 and 8 lb) are available by special order. See instructions for ordering.
