The use of sheet lead for radiation protection in laboratories, clinics, dental, and medical applications can be a challenge. When designing and building radiation shielding, many contractors and architects face challenges due to space, criteria, and the weight of the shielding requirements. MarShield provides sheet lead in 12 different sizes and thicknesses from 1/32nd to 1/4″ for all shielding requirements. In addition, any size sheet lead up to 1/8″ can be supplied pre-attached, adhesive bonded to Drywall (sheetrock), Fire Rated Plywood and other supporting materials to assist in the ease of installation.
Pre-Applied Sheet Lead on Drywall & Plywood Ready to Install!
MarShield’s drywall is laminated with sheet lead that is designed to cover necessary surfaces or walls in a room requiring radiation shielding. It is affixed to surfaces or walls ensuring a continuous layer of sheet lead under the drywall to a specified height. It is used in new construction or shielding upgrades/renovations for P.E.T and other types of diagnostic imaging rooms.
Sheet Lead Installation Guidelines
MarsMetal recommends the use of sheet lead that is factory bonded to drywall/gypsum board, lath, or plywood for wall covering. This allows the lead to remain rigid and flat during the installation and ensures a continuous meeting edge if installed correctly. Where sheet lead must be used on its own then the following guidelines may be used.
