Lead Shielding

We offer lead shielding, radiation shielding & X-ray Shielding sheets and plates for noise reduction. Our lead shielding products are available at any size

for radiation shielding, gamma ray and x-ray shielding

Pure lead and lead antimony alloy products are available in any size, standard sizes are shown below.

Lead Sheet

lead sheet in custom sizes and alloys can be specially fabricated ranging from 1/64″-3″ thick x 1/8″-96″ wide x lengths up to 25′, depending on your sound reduction material, radiation sheeting or x-ray plate needs. Materials for neutron shielding and nuclear shielding are available.

Lead Foil

We provide any size to the tenth of a thousand (.0000″) from .0020″ to .0310″ thick. Widths 1/8″ wide and up to lengths up to 200′ long. Our foils are rolled on heavy duty fiber cores. End caps can be provided to protect against shipping damage. This allows a perfect roll on your dock.

Lead Foil value added – We will laminate your foil with PSA (pressure sensitive adhesive), PSA will release paper, vinyl or any other product specified. We can stamp, laminate or assemble any application.

Lead Sheetrock

Lead sheet can also be found within lead sheetrock and lead lined plywood. Lead sheet is laminated to sheetrock or plywood. Lead lined sheetrock and lead lined plywood are materials typically used in the construction of radiation shielded rooms, such as X-ray rooms in doctor’s and dentist offices.

The laminates are typically attached to the studs using drywall screws with lead screw shields (lead disks) attached and lead seam filler tape – another form of lead sheet – across the seams to prevent radiation leakage.

Lead Shielding effectiveness

The following table shows the minimum thickness of lead shielding required as a function of generated X-Rays peak voltage.
