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:
We also offer CDX, Pyro-Guard, HI- ABUSE® & HI-IMPACT® FIRE-SHIELD WALLBOARD, best used with our 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.
When mobile shielding is required, Radiation Protection Products has cost-effective, mobile x-ray barriers available for your specifications, and can produce them expediently to meet your deadlines. We can custom manufacture an x-ray barrier to meet your design specifications.
RPP's 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.
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.
PRE-HUNG LEAD LINED DOORS
Pre-hung lead lined doors might be the answer for that special job. Radiation Protection Products, Inc. can supply you the lead lined door, lead lined door frame, hinges, lock or latch set and all the accessories in one package.
Radiation Protection Products uses a variety of face panels. We offer Natural Birch, Red Oak and other wood veneers, plus plastic laminates. Basic lead thickness range from 1/32" to 1/2" in wood doors. Special order lead lined doors and door pairs are available as quoted.
LEAD LINED DOOR OPTIONS:
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.
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:
