Lead Brick Applications
Lead bricks are typically used in nuclear and radiation therapy applications. However, lead bricks can also be used for radioactive isotope creation, ballast weights and counterbalances. RPP's interlocking lead bricks are available in a variety of sizes to suit differing shielding and weight requirements. Our standard lead bricks can be cut to any size requirements.
RPP's interlocking lead bricks are a perfect solution for high radiation potential. The interlocking feature of these lead bricks eliminates any radiation leakage in the wall. These interlocking lead bricks are offered in sizes that are manageable and easy to stack, and they require no mortar or any other additional shielding materials.
Lead Brick Installation
When installing lead bricks, the best method of installation is to have the lead bricks sandwiched. The lead bricks can be sandwiched between two rows of studs (with extra steel tube support if required), or between a concrete wall and a row of studs. Installation of the lead bricks using this sandwich method enables conduit and cabling to be run without concern for cutting through the lead brick wall. In all cases, the design of the lead brick wall should not allow for any penetrations in the wall as this causes issues logistically, financially and with safety.
RPP's well seasoned staff is ready to answer any questions and assist with designs and budgets. We also provide installation of lead bricks anywhere in the world. Thus providing our customers turnkey shielding solutions.
