Professionals working in nuclear medicine spend many hours each day in close proximity to machines that emit harmful radiation. Although any given individual exposure may be low, the cumulative effects over time can be lethal without proper protection. Lead lining is used in work aprons and smocks, in radiation shielding doors, door frames, and walls, to create a barrier that will absorb all of the incidental radiation and protect medical professionals.

Doors and frames must fit precisely to avoid leakage, which is why the medical professionals we trust to care for our health trust TrustShield™ brand doors and frames from National Custom Hollow Metal to safeguard theirs on the job. At NCHM, every TrustShield door and frame we manufacture is built to precise tolerances by the finest craftsmen in the industry. Each door is subjected to a multi-point inspection process to ensure that each one meets the most stringent industry requirements for durability, reliability, and radiation shielding properties.

Our TrustShield Lead Lined doors are available in 16, 14 or 12 gauge galvanneal or 16, 14 or 12 gauge stainless steel construction with a continuous sheet of lead from 1/32″ thick up to 1/8″ thick, laminated to the door skin and a sheet of high density polystyrene. The lead sheet extends the full width and height of the door, with the thickness of the lead shielding to be equal to that of the adjacent wall. Lead lined doors can be built at 4′ 10 1/2″ ​x ​12’0″ with ​1/16″ lead and 4’10’/2″ ​ x ​8’0″ with 1/8″ lead, and all doors have continuous 14 gauge channels installed around the perimeter as reinforcement to ensure years of trouble-free service.
