X-ray glass has high lead and barium content, providing optimum shielding against radiation from equipment operating in the 80 to 300 kV range.
Our standard x-ray glass is 1/4" thick and provides a shielding equivalent of 2.0mm Pb over the typical medical radiation spectrum of 50-110 kV. This is the same glass used in our mobile x-ray barriers.
Standard sizes range from 24" x 30" up to 36" x 72". Custom sizes are also available.
Common Applications for Leaded Glass Windows include:
- Medical X-Ray Radiology
- Chiropractic X-Ray
- Dental X-Ray
- CT (Computerized Tomography)
- PET (Positron Emission Tomography)
- Nuclear Medicine
- X-Ray Security Screens
- Nuclear Facility Control Rooms
- NDT Testing Facilities
The shielding requirements of each room are dependent on the machine or source, location and many other factors. Exact shielding requirements should be determined by a licensed radiation physicist.
Leaded Glass Products are normally shipped 3 weeks after order.
