In all areas where radiation equipment is in use, including in medical and dental offices, research facilities, processing plants and other types of industries, having the correct level of radiation shielding is critical to the health and well-being of staff, visitors, and patients.
To accommodate different types of radiation levels and exposure, there are a variety of different products available. This includes solid bricks, which can be smooth or interlocking, to lead-lined gypsum and plywood for construction of imaging rooms and areas. There are also requirements for radiation shielding sheet material, which can be customized to the thickness required for the specific application.
Additionally, x-ray glass with specialized frames is also required in many types of facilities. This is ideal for allowing technicians and others to have a line of sight during x-ray procedures and to also create a more open, comfortable space for patients during the process.
The top lead manufacturing companies provide the highest quality control for all the products they manufacture. This ensures products ordered meet all required codes and standards. This is critical for safety as well as compliance in any type of industry.
Quality control processes also mean uniform components for all types of radiation shielding. This is essential for construction, windows, frames and for any type of interlocking bricks. With precise shape and manufacturing, building and working with the shielding material is easier and has less waste.
Standard products will be ideal for most types of applications. However, for specialized or innovative designs the need for unique sizes, thicknesses, and alloys may be required.
Not all lead manufacturers in the United States have the capacity to provide custom products made to the customer’s specifications. When custom material is required, always choose the best manufacturing facility for reliable order delivery and top-quality products.
