Available Lead Lined Doors
MarShield supplies custom lead lined, shielding sliding doors and frames. These sliding doors are built for the healthcare industry and are supplied with commercial grade hardware along with an engineered designed framing system. They are manufactured to meet the lead requirements and weight capacity for the sliding track and hardware in new and retrofit applications.
In hospitals, there are rooms like therapy rooms, Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and Cardiac Care Unit (CCU) and x-ray rooms which emit dangerous radiation rays. To protect both the hospital employees and patients from unnecessary harmful rays’ radiation proof sliding doors are designed with lead shielding.
They are mostly used in places where there is enough space for them. The first step in quoting the door is a calculation of an authorized physicist who defines the door protection requirements and the width of overlapping needed for the door.
These doors are available as manual slide or powered sliding doors.

Lead Lined Metal and Wood Veneer Doors and Hollow Metal Frames
MarShield offers a premium line of lead-lined metal and wood veneer doors and hollow metal frames that are manufactured to have an equal appearance to architectural-designed doors and frames. Our doors are designed and constructed with the highest quality craftsmanship and materials available. These doors are designed to take into consideration the heavy weight that sheet lead imposes on them. They are constructed to support this extra weight, which will not detract from their appearance or radiation protection. The frames are designed to support the lead-lined doors to provide a lead-lined interface between the door and the lead-lined wall in the adjacent walls. Usually they are attached to studs in the walls using a variety of techniques specifically designed to hold the door securely and prevent radiation shielding leakage. Frames are available in fully-welded form or knock-down style. For maximum support MarShield recommends a welded style vs. knock-down type.

Product Can Be Lead Free?
With Mars FlexShieldTM technology, we offer a safe and environmentally friendly solution to traditional lead-based products.It’s lightweight. Flexible. Customizable. And it’s the future, now.
Most standard architectural hardware can be specified and used on the door and frame. The correct specification of the finishing hardware is critical to the success of the complete closure. Adequate hinging is required to carry the heavy loads imposed by the lead lining. Hardware that fits into openings in the door and frame should be suitable to maintain the integrity of the closure. Extreme care must be taken when applying any item to a lead-lined door or frame that the fasteners do not penetrate that lead lining.

Additional important information
The amount of lead required in doors, frames and windows must be determined by a licensed radiation shielding physicist.
