Well-Seasoned on All Forms Of Radiation Shielding

Lead Lined Glass

Radiation Protection Products’ leaded x-ray glass delivers superior visual clarity and high light transmission with little or no distortion. Suitable for many uses and primarily in the medical industry, lead-lined x-ray glass provides high-grade protection against gamma rays and x-rays.

Effective Protection with Radiation Shielding Glass

We use the purest lead available in all our radiation shielding products, ensuring the best use of your budget and space while providing the most effective lead shielding possible. Our optical-grade lead glass contains 38% lead and 15% barium, resulting in light amber-colored glass suitable for installation within screens, walls, and doors.

Available Leaded Glass Configurations

Equivalencies for our leaded X-ray glass are based on 150kV, with higher lead equivalencies available upon request. Our standard radiation shielding glass is available in 1.6mm, 2.0mm, 2.5mm, and 3.2mm equivalencies. We manufacture our high-grade lead-lined glass following the Lead Industries Handbook and NCRP Applicable Reports to ensure our radiation protection supplies meet or exceed Federal Specification DD-G-451.

We also offer specially designed laminated lead shielding glass that consists of 1/16” leaded glass laminated to a piece of clear float. This design helps meet state specifications requiring safety and lead properties in all vision panels. View our Leaded Glass Submittal for more information on product specifications.

High-Grade Protective Lead-Lined Glass for Medical Applications

While leaded glass is used throughout various industries, it is critical in medical applications. Our leaded glass and leaded X-ray glass barriers have been used in applications such as:

  • X-ray, CT scan, fluoroscopy, and P.E.T. imaging observation windows
  • Protective windows in laboratories
  • Protective screens for medical diagnostics
  • Windows for airport security X-ray stations
  • Lenses for safety goggles worn during radiation testing
  • Radiation shielding for nuclear plants and storage stations
  • Can be laminated to meet safety requirements

Custom Options for Leaded X-Ray Glass

In addition to our standard options, we produce custom X-ray glass for most applications. RWB46 is supplied as polished plates up to a maximum size of 2000mm x 1000mm. Smaller sizes can be cut to customer requirements and all cut edges are ground with safety chamfers. Different thickness’ are available within the ranges listed and can be quoted upon request, with high-speed turnaround capabilities. Our experts can create custom radiation protection solutions to meet any size, shielding level, clarity level, or other requirement.
