Made to exceptional standards of safety and quality, we supply both mobile and fixed protective screens for use in hospitals, dental surgeries and veterinary practices.
X-Ray Mobile Screens
Our x-ray mobile screens are available in a range of sizes and finishes. X-ray mobile screens are a practical alternative for departments which have limited space as they can be transferred to another area when not in use.
●Wipe clean plastic laminate finish
●Anodised aluminium trims
●Lead glass vision panel
●Lead protection ranging from 1mm – 2.5mm
●Non marking anti-static castors
●Accident & Emergency Departments
●Industrial & NDT
Envirotect x-ray screens are manufactured to suit the client’s design and meet with the shielding requirements of the RPA (Radiation Protection Advisor).
X-ray screens are finished in a wipe clean plastic laminate ranging from standard white to a choice of vibrant colours.
Shielding is achieved via a lead core to the panels and lead glass windows for a clear and panoramic view of procedures.
The RPA (Radiation Protection Advisor) is responsible for advising the lead content for radiation shielding. The RPA will normally prepare a report outlining the shielding requirements for each element of a room such as the walls, doors windows, operator screens etc.
The majority of doors will incorporate 2mm (code 5) lead but this may vary depending on the machine output, proximity and patient through-put. For example, doors for dental and veterinary use could be as low as 1mm lead (code 3) whilst a door for a CT Scanner could be to 2.65mm lead (code 6).
Although it’s common practice for the RPA to advise the lead content in increments of half millimetres, the lead used will be standard ‘coded’ lead. (See table)
Coded Lead Used
Code 3 (1.32mm)
Code 4 (1.80mm)
Code 5 (2.24mm)
Code 6 (2.65mm)
Code 7 (3.15mm)
The lead is pressure laminated within the construction of the product and is not accessible to end users, patients or public.
Lead Glass and Screens
Although most screens follow a standard format, here are a few tips to follow:
1. Leave a solid panel against the wall. This will enable trunking and services to run down the wall and will also help with installation.
