Radiation Protection

Some things in life you can’t afford to take chances with. Radiation protection is one of them. We are a trusted supplier of radiation protection products to healthcare facilities, dental clinics, veterinary practices, nuclear research and non-destructive testing environments all over Ireland. Our lead-lined boards from Midland Lead are used in these industries for guaranteed protection against harmful levels of radiation exposure.

Why Use Lead?

Thanks to its high density, a relatively thin layer of lead offers consistent, reliable and proven protection to radiation. Its low bulk and pliability makes it an ideal material for incorporation into building materials.

When fitted, the lead is completely hidden from view; securely bonded to high quality plasterboard, plywood or MDF. This gives the benefit of complete x-ray protection whilst the finished piece is aesthetically like any other high quality room-lining material.

Lead is also an outstanding barrier against noise, so lead-lined boards will prevent bleed through of internal and external noise.

The competitive cost of lead-lined boards when compared to other solutions, makes lead the preferred option for organisations all over Ireland.
