Providing complete protection against x-rays for staff and patients, Midland Lead lead-lined boards are used extensively in hospitals, dental surgeries and veterinary practices where x-ray radiation protection is essential to safeguard staff and patients. When fitted, the lead is completely hidden from view; securely bonded to high quality plywood. This gives the benefit of complete x-ray protection whilst the finished piece is aesthetically like any other high quality room-lining material. Plywood boards are recommended when code 7 (3.15 mm) lead sheet or above is required for radiation protection. All the lead sheet used in the boards is custom manufactured by Midland Lead. The machine cast lead (approved by the British Board of Agrément) carries the CE mark (BS EN 14783) confirming its suitability for use as an internal lining material. Thanks again to its high density, lead is also an exceptional material for soundproofing. Lead-lined boards prevent the escape of noise from either internal or external sources so have a wide range of potential applications in media studios, cinemas, leisure, maritime and industrial environments where enhanced acoustic protection is needed.
