Lead is generally the most cost-effective radiation shielding material that protects against the effects of gamma rays and x-rays. The properties of lead shielding which makes it an excellent shielding material is its density, high atomic number, high level of stability, ease of fabrication, high degree of flexibility in application and its availability.
Our Lead Sheets are extremely resistant to corrosion from the atmosphere, salt water and most industrial chemicals. Lead Sheets are built into a variety of structures such as walls, doors, window frames and cabinetry to provide the necessary shielding protection.
Lead Sheets can be readily manipulated with standard hand tools without the risk of fracture.
Lead Sheets are offered for many applications that include:
