Lead-Lined Drywall & Gypsum Board
Radiation Protection Products’ lead-lined drywall, also called lead-lined sheetrock, consists of gypsum board laminated with sheet lead to provide radiation shielding from high-level gamma ray and x-ray radiation. Integral in applications that use high dose radiation for diagnostic imaging and procedures, our drywall with lead lining is a permanent solution that offers more effective protection than semi-permanent or mobile partitions.
Effective Lead-Lined Gypsum Board Drywall Solutions
All our lead-lined gypsum board consists of a single, unpierced sheet of lead laminated to the specified thickness of the drywall. Our commitment to quality, effective gypsum board drywall includes:
- Only using Fire Code Sheetrock in our lead-lined drywall products
- Casting and rolling lead lining in-house using pure lead
- Applying industrial-grade adhesive to keep lead lining secure
Standard Options for Lead-Lined Drywall
Lead-lined sheetrock comes standard in 1/2” or 5/8” drywall thicknesses. Select from lead lining in thicknesses up to 1/8” with optional double layering for high radiation applications. We provide 2” lead strips of the same thickness and height of your lead sheeting for sealing vertical joints during installation. While 3/8” lead discs are no longer required to cover fastener penetrations, light switches, air ducts, and other receptacles still need to be properly shielded with cut-out and penetration lead shielding products.

You can also read about our other featured projects or read our case study on how we supplied lead-lined sheetrock for a large-scale medical/dental clinic renovation.
Custom Options for Lead-Lined Sheetrock
We offer lead lining bonded to moisture and mold-resistant gypsum board in custom sizes for specialty radiation shielding applications. Our lead-lined drywall can be attached using standard coarse drywall screws and is available laminated to most of your drywall requirements.
To determine how much lead shielding you need for your custom lead-lined drywall, we recommend working with a licensed radiation health physicist to assess your required lead thickness. Get started by reading our guide to radiation shielding requirements.
Lead-Lined Drywall for Industrial Applications
Having the right protection is especially important for imaging rooms and other applications where employees are at risk of prolonged radiation exposure. We provide the most effective drywall lead shielding for your medical, scientific, commercial, or industrial application. Radiation Protection Products uses only the purest lead available to offer a quality product that complies with all required standards.
Our drywall lead shielding is particularly useful for:
