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.
Our frames are designed to provide the foundation and support for leaded glass or leaded acrylic. The frame provides a lead-lined link between the glazing and the lead-lined wall. Split-type frames that allow the frames to be manufactured in two pieces are available. This allows the installer to fit the frame into the opening from both sides and fastened together to form a solid assembly.
Additional important information
The amount of lead required in doors, frames and windows must be determined by a licensed radiation shielding physicist.
