Project managers, particularly those specializing in the construction of medical facilities, know all too well how important it is to find a trusted source when ordering lead lined doors and frames.

There are many government and industrial regulations required to provide adequate protection from radiation, a general term used to describe a bundle of energy in the form of electromagnetic (EM) waves. Radio waves, microwaves, ultraviolet rays, X-rays, gamma rays, and visible light are all forms of EM waves.

  • Only one form, ionizing or penetrating radiation, can pass through materials. Examples include X-rays and gamma rays, which are critical for diagnosis and treatment of illnesses. However, due to its ability to ionize and excite molecules, radiation can damage living tissue.
  • Lead door and lead frame manufacturers concern themselves with one distinct form of protection against radiation, commonly referred to as shielding.
  • Shielding is achieved by using construction materials that absorb radiation. Radiation exposure decreases with thicker shielding, with lead being one of the most common materials used for protection from X-rays and gamma rays because it is highly effective.
