PEARLTEX Cleanable Radiation Shielding for Healthcare Settings

Posted by Mandy Bayman on

PEARLTEX Cleanable Medical Radiation Shields

Materials which are non-staining, easy-to-clean and coordinate with the interior design of the building is a common requirement in healthcare settings. Historically, radiation shielding materials have been difficult to clean and stains show easily, especially if the white color is chosen.

PEARLTEX is the natural choice for radiation protection in healthcare settings where a clean and crisp color is preferred and stains to be easily noticed and cleaned. The certified lead-free shielding material is a safe and effective alternative to lead. The non-porous, pearl-colored coating can be cleaned with common hospital cleansers and does not stain when exposed to fluids, grease, and other contaminants.

PEARLTEX is certified to minimum protection level of 0.50 mm lead equivalence from 50 kV - 150 kV, tested per IEC EN 61331-1 in compliance to IEC EN 61331-3. 


The off-white 'Pearl' color is the preferred color of choice for healthcare settings. This allows stains to be easily noticed and cleaned.


This stain resistant shielding offers a non-porous & water-resistant alternative to leaded vinyl or patient protection blankets.  Fluids, oils, grease and other contaminants are easily wiped off with detergent, water, and common healthcare cleansers. Curtains can be easily cleaned in place with standard healthcare chemicals without fear of staining or degrading curtains. 


The shielding products are available in wall- or ceiling-mounted curtains, blankets and mobile barriers. 


Incredibly strong, withstanding severe wear and abuse. Extra strength and tear resistance means extended curtain life. Surface is UV & ozone resistant, maintaining integrity over time and standing up to repetitive UV-C disinfection cycles in healthcare settings.


If used in patient contact situations the material provides a lead-free radiation protection product which is easier to clean and helps to prevent potential buildups of bacteria and other disease-causing microorganisms. The surface is UV & ozone resistant, maintaining integrity over time and standing up to repetitive UV-C disinfection cycles in healthcare settings.


Certified lead-free & compliant with EU Directive 2011/65/EU for Restrictions of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) which limits the maximum concentration of lead, hexavalent chromium, cadmium, mercury, polybrominated biphenyls and polybrominated diphenylethers.
