Lead X-Ray Safety Glass




Any x-ray control window within 24" of a door opening and any door lites must have impact resistant glass.  Radiation Protection Products offers two types of leaded safety glass to meet the ANSI Z97.1 and CPSC 16 CFR 1201 codes. One using a 3M film and one using a laminate interlayer. Both methods are described below and both meet all applicable requirements.

3M SCOTCHSHIELD™ SAFETY FILM SOLUTION:

Our 3M Film solution meets all applicable requirements including ANSI Z97.1 and CSPC 16 CFR 1201. The film utilized is 3M's 1/4" single clear Scotchshield Ultra Safety and Security Window Film.  This film can be applied to all thicknesses of leaded glass including 1/16", 3/32" and 1/8".  Once applied, the film allows our leaded glass to be utilized in door lites and site lites that occur within 24" of a door opening.  This safety film can be applied to all sizes of glass up to a 48" x 36".  With a film thickness of .05mm, the 3M film does not affect the overall nominal thickness of the leaded glass. One applied, the thicknesses for the following lead equivalencies will remain relatively unchanged: 1/16" lead equivalency = 5/16" physical thickness, 3/32" lead equivalency = 3/8" physical thickness and 1/8" lead equivalency = 1/2" physical thickness.
