Leaded X-Ray Glass for Shielding
High lead/barium content glass for x-ray protection providing a high quality, transparent, protective shield against x-ray radiation in medical, technical and research applications. Its high content of lead and barium gives optimum shielding against radiation energies generated by equipment operating in the range 100-300 KV. Standard lead equivalency is 2.0 mm (1/16”) with a thickness of 8.0 mm (5/16”) Higher equivalencies are available.
Standard Small Pane Sizes: 8" x 10" | 12" x 12" | 12" x 18" | 18" x 18"
Typical Large Pane Sizes: From 18" x 24" up to 36" x 72".
Custom sizes are also available up to 96".
Custom Lead Lined Window Frames for Lead Glass
For any new installation, lead lined window frames are necessary. Sometimes a contractor has a source for the lead lined window frames. However, more often than not, a frame will need to be purchased with the lead glass. With several options for the lead glass windows and lead frames, we ask that you send us the details of your project so we may offer a quotation.
Lead Lined Telescopic Window Frames
Telescoping window frames are supplied fully lead lined with an integral all-purpose telescoping section to accommodate all types of wall construction. Lead Lined Frames are designed to fit walls ranging from 4 inches to 6 1/4 inches thick. The standard 2-inch face x 1/2-inch deep face return is aesthetically pleasing and is compatible in appearance with most standard hollow metal hardware and fixtures. Constructed of 16-gauge steel, corners are fully welded and ground smooth. Frames are precision factory punched for reversible stops, which are predrilled and countersunk, which allows for adequate glazing with either one or two panes of 5/16” lead shielding glass (x-ray glass) or one pane of 9/16” lead shielding glass (x-ray glass).
Lead Lined Two-Piece Slip Frames2-Piece slip lead lined frames install in a similar way to telescopic view frames but differ in that they are manufactured for a specific throat dimension. Often these are used in when larger throat dimensions are required or mullions are necessary. Constructed of 16 or 14 Gauge Cold Rolled Steel or A60 Galvannealed. Profiles are power brake formed. Jambs, head and sills to be assembled with tongue and slot connection. Miters accurately fitted, continuously welded, and ground smooth. Frames shall be thoroughly cleaned after assembly, and given a prime coat of rust-inhibiting primer paint. The primer shall be air dried.
