Lead Lined Plywood image

Lead Lined Plywood

Many types of plywood are available upon request. We can readily offer 5/8" and 3/4" thick fire treated plywood meeting or exceeding the following specifications:
  • ASTM D5516
  • ASTM D5564
  • ASTM E-84
    We also offer CDX, Pyro-Guard, HI- ABUSE® & HI-IMPACT® FIRE-SHIELD WALLBOARD, best used with our lead angles.
    Lead Lined Drywall image

    Lead Lined Drywall

    Lead Lined Drywall (also referred to as lead lined sheetrock or lead lined gypsum) is supplied with lead lining bonded to 1/2" or 5/8" drywall. Custom sizes for lead lined drywall are quoted upon request. We also provide lead lining bonded to specialty drywall such as moisture and mold resistant board. Lead Lined Drywall (lead lined sheetrock, lead lined gypsum wallboard) is supplied with 2" strips of the same lead thickness and height and 3/8" diameter lead discs.

    Lead Bricks - Standard and Interlocking

    Lead Brick: Exlusively Developed for Shielding of High Energy X-Rays
    • Nuclear Lead Shielding
    • P.E.T. (Positron Emission Tomography) Shielding
    • Gamma Knife Rooms
    • HDR Rooms
    • Linear Accelerator Shielding
    Lead Angles image

    Lead Angles

    Construction of radiation shielding rooms and barriers poses unique challenges. Every time a screw or nail is used, there is an increased risk of radiation leakage into the protected area. Previous solutions included the use of additional lead strips and discs, making the project more costly and time consuming.

    RPP designed a cost effective, leak-proof, lead angle system that provides complete radiation shielding. It eliminates the need to use LEAD STRIPS and DISCS for all lead lined drywall (lead lined sheetrock, lead lined gypsum wallboard) and lead lined plywood applications.

    Sliding Neutron Doors image

    Sliding Neutron Doors

    RPPs sliding radiation shielding doors (neutron doors) are constructed with " thick A-36 steel face plates. A-36 steel flat bars are used for the stiles and the reinforcement inside the door. Flat bar thicknesses for the stiles and reinforcement are dictated by the core of the door. The core of the door will consist of the shielding requirements (typically lead and borated polyethylene) as determined by a licensed physicist. We can also design the door with extra space inside for future upgrades which may require more shielding. The radiation shielding door (neutron door) finish is completed in the factory with a paint grade primer. RPP offers safety features for the door such as motion sensors, pressure sensitive tape, and battery backup.

    Borated Polyethylene Neutron Doors image

    Borated Polyethylene Neutron Doors

    Borated polyethylene is a product typically used in the medical field to shield neutrons. Made from high density polyethylene plastic with 5% boron content by weight, this material provides exceptional durability over a wide temperature range. Borated polyethylene is available from Radiation Protection Products in standard-sized sheets (48" x 96" x 1"), as well as in blocks, slabs, and custom-size sheets.

    Borated polyethylene is easy to work with, fabricate, and install, making it ideal for a wide range of shielding applications, such as high intensity x-ray rooms, medical vaults and vault doors, nuclear energy or storage facilities, particle accelerators, hot cells, and more.

    Lead Lined Wood Doors image

    Lead Lined Wood Doors

    Radiation Protection Products' lead lined doors are manufactured using only the finest materials and workmanship available. With constant quality control and ongoing inspection, you are assured of receiving the strongest and most functional lead lined doors possible.

    Radiation Protection Products' lead lined doors are constructed using a single layer of sheet lead in the center of the door. Wood cores are laminated under hydraulic pressure on each side of the lead.

    Radiation Protection Products will manufacture lead lined doors to your specifications with leaded x-ray glass windows and options as listed. We also supply steel braced, lead lined, hollow metal door frames.
    Lead Lined Door Frames image

    Lead Lined Door Frames

    Radiation Protection Products' Standard Lead Lined Door Frames consist of 16-gauge steel, a 2" face, and a 5-7/8" jamb depth. These lead lined door frames are set up and welded and can accommodate up to 1/2" thick lead lining. Our Lead Lined Door Frames are shipped with steel stud anchors that can be attached to the lead lined door frame either by welding or with steel fasteners if the lead lining does not exceed 3/32" thick.

    We require the use of an Angle Iron for added support on Lead Lined Door Frames that require 1/8" thick lead or higher. These Angle Irons can be spot welded to the steel stud or pre-drilled and bolted to the steel stud.

    *We do offer angle irons on our lead lined door frames that are below 1/8" thick lead if requested.

    Lead Flashing image

    Lead Flashing

    Radiation Protection Products' custom fabricated lead roof flashings consist of a lead pipe boot burned to a sheet lead base. To seal to the vent pipe, simply roll the open end of the malleable lead boot to the inside of vent pipe.

    The Standard weights of lead are 2 1/2, 3 and 4 lb. Heavier weights (6 and 8 lb) are available by special order.

    Lead Plate

    Lead plate is used in many radiation shielding applications including industrial, nuclear and medical. Lead plate, because of its high density and high atomic number, is an effective construction material for shielding from gamma rays and x-rays. Lead plate can also be used as a sound barrier.
    Lead Pigs image

    Lead Pigs

    Lead Pigs, also called Lead Ignots, are crudely cast bars of lead, used for multiple applications. Lead pigs (ingots) are often used in the construction of radiation and nuclear shielding structures as well as counterweights. Various sizes and shapes of lead pigs (ingots) are available to meet your specifications.

    Lead Shielding for Industrial X-Ray & NDT Imaging image

    Lead Shielding for Industrial X-Ray & NDT Imaging

    Industrial x-ray and non-destructive (NDT) imaging are important processes, allowing materials, products, and equipment to be inspected for hidden flaws that could not be seen otherwise. One of the most common uses of x-ray/NDT testing is weld quality assurance - verifying the quality, location, and coverage of welds inside closed vessels or similar equipment.

    As with medical x-ray imaging, industrial x-ray and NDT systems require proper shielding to keep personnel safe. Radiation Protection Products (RPP) offers a wide range of lead shielding products for industrial x-ray and NDT applications.

    Sound Proofing / Acoustical Board

    Lead sheet serves as the ideal sound barrier (attenuator) because it is both dense and limp. Other acoustical materials in its sound transmission class can be applied in greater thicknesses in an attempt to achieve the same transmission loss, but there is a point at which they gain stiffness that negates the effectiveness of their density.

    Advantages of using lead for sound attenuation include:
    • High Density
    • Pliability
    • Easily Adaptable.
