MarShield™Lead brick shielding provides the best choice for construction where temporary, permanent shields or storage areas are required, offering you the flexibility in your design and construction choices. Lead Bricks are ideal for adding additional shielding to existing rooms and can be used in new construction as a method to reduce wall or ceiling thickness to achieve space savings. Cast from 99.94% pure virgin high quality lead as a standard or when more hardness in the bricks is required antimony is added. Our bricks are relatively smooth, clean and have a non-porous surface. Lead bricks can be used for walls, coves, glove-boxes, hot cells or partitions, the transportation of radioactive materials, and nuclear shielding or simply as ballast weight. Bricks are available in a wide range of sizes, thicknesses and shapes to suit your application. They are commonly used for shielding when sheet lead is impractical or not available in sizes or thicknesses you may require. Straight or interlocking styles are available from our stock.
Interlocking Lead Bricks:
MarShield™ offers interlocking Chevron style type lead bricks for maximum protection where the highest level of shielding is required for X-ray Beta and Gamma Shielding.
Our lead bricks can be easily erected, modified, disassemble and relocated in the field to create protective walls systems and cells to suit your application. The unique interlocking "V" shape tongue and groove configuration permits the bricks to interlock into one another preventing the leakage of radiation through gaps as commonly found in straight lead bricks. The interlocking provides a more stable and sturdier wall system aiding in the prevention of the wall toppling over. A convenient solution for providing an efficient and tighter fit shielding when stacking or building wall systems.
Straight Lead Bricks:
MarShield™ offers Straight type lead bricks for radiation shielding where interlocking bricks will not suit your application. They can be cut on site in any direction without the fear of losing the interlocking capability. A Double row stacked behind the first in a staggered pattern can combat the loss of radiation commonly known to happen through the first row gaps.
DIAGNOSTIC RADIATION SHIELDING CONSIDERATIONS
All Lead Radiation Shielding requirements should be calculated and determined by a certified professional radiation health physicist based on the following information.
