TrustShield Doors and Frames keep nuclear medicine technicians safe!
The healthcare industry is highly competitive, and today’s patients deserve high-quality treatment at state-of-the-art hospitals and clinics! We’ve gotten much better at fighting cancer and other chronic illnesses, and early detection is the key to the best possible prognosis. Radiation therapy is a powerful weapon in the fight against cancer and tumors, and X-rays, CT Scans, and MRIs are noninvasive tools that enable doctors to examine their patients inside and out. The danger to the patient is minimal, and the benefits outweigh the risks from the procedures. However, without the proper precautions, radiation exposure can be harmful to technicians who work with the equipment on a daily basis. National Custom Hollow Metal has been manufacturing premium quality products for over four decades, and we can give you a quote for custom-built TrustShield lead-lined doors and frames in two hours or less!
Trustshield doors can be built to your specifications with 16, 14, or 12 gauge galvanneal or 16, 14, or 12 gauge stainless steel construction. The doors are reinforced 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, and the thickness of the lead shielding should be equal to that of the adjacent wall. You can order TrustShield doors in sizes ranging from 4′ 10 1/2″ x 12’0″ with 1/16″ lead reinforcement and 4’10’/2″ x 8’0″ with 1/8″ lead reinforcement. All of our lead-lined doors have continuous 14 gauge channels installed around the perimeter as reinforcement, and we offer up to 1-1/2 hour Warnock-Hersey fire resistance labeling.
TrustShield doors and frames are corrosion-resistant and built to last. The only thing you’ll ever have to do to keep them looking as good as the day they were delivered is occasionally wipe them down with water. We offer industry-leading turnaround times on all orders and expedited shipping options to help our distributors keep their projects on schedule.
