Many contractors and architects face challenges due to space criteria and the weight of the shielding requirements. We provide 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. For areas that require minimum panels to partition we have created our own prefinished lead lined panels called "Easy Shield Panels". These panels save time and achieve a finished look for already constructed areas without the chaos of construction. It is important to install to all regulation requirements with approved products. Sheet Lead must be manufactured from Pure Lead and meets ASTM B-29, B749 and Federal QQ L-201F, QQ-L171E standards. MarShield can assist with our in-house engineering services and physics shielding analysis where a solution is required.

3D Lead lined Room Drawing service provides better estimate of lead brick requirements.

In order to help our customers better estimate the lead brick requirements and associated material & labour costs plus plan construction methods for their lead shielded room or wall projects, Marshield now offers a 3D Room Modeling service. Our experts will take your room dimensions (including a door / window opening) and design a lead brick configuration using our standard 1" or 2" thick interlocking bricks which will minimize cuts, material waste and cost. The room design is captured in Solidworks CAD and we will provide detailed drawings to be used as a construction and costing aid.

Marshield is proud to have recently designed and manufactured custom Lead Shielded Carriers with a Transportation Cart for a Canadian nuclear laboratory. This system is being used for measuring electrical potential of medical isotopes.

The 1" thick lead carriers provide storage of the isotopes with the cases being used to protect the communication wires. The cart allows for easy transportation throughout the facility. This custom radiation shielding solution guarantees significant improvements in dose reduction to test technicians within the facility as well as providing a lightweight easy to use transportation method.

MarShield says farewell to Big Momma the Mobile Lead Lined Shielding Barrier
Marshield is very sad to say farewell to our Big Momma. She is a big beautiful Mobile Lead Lined Shielding Barrier with unruly dimensions of 7 1/2 feet tall and 6 feet wide ! She is constructed of two 1/16″ lead equivalency panels fabricated of a single un-pierced sheet of pure lead (99.9%) laminated between two ABS Plastic (washable) panels balanced for stability with heavy duty outrigger type legs. The lead panels are housed in a mild carbon steel frame with a powder coat beige ('cause Big Momma liked to tan) paint finish.

A Gamma and Neutron Radiation Prize Fighter !
This little competitor was not sure whether he wanted to be a winner in Gamma or Neutron radiation shielding when he grew up. So he decided to weigh in at 5000 lbs and be a prize fighter in both categories ! He has a top lead lined cabinet (16" high x 20" wide x 20" deep) designed for Gamma radiation shielding and a bottom borated polyethelene lined cabinet (32" high x 20" wide x 20" deep) designed for a Neutron radiation shielding application.

Hot Cell Shielding Component Lead Pour

Hot Cell Shielding Component Lead Pour
With design and services from Premier Technology, Marshield recently delivered a very large lead pour where over 40,000 Lbs of molten lead was cast into 14 special Hot Cell radiation shielding components or weldments. Hot Cells are shielded radiation containment chambers that allow operators to safely handle and manipulate radioactive isotopes. They provide a safe containment box in which operators can control and manipulate the equipment required. The main uses of hot cells are in the nuclear energy industry and in nuclear medicine, specifically in the production of radiopharmaceuticals. They are also used in cleanroom environments for scientific research.
