The lead door is integrated into medical, scientific, and industrial applications that use high-intensity radiation for imaging and diagnostic procedures.
Lead metal cladding, also called lead sheet, is protective against gamma rays and high-level radiography. Where is a lead door used?
Application and operation of different types of lead doors:
Wooden doors with lead coating
Coated lead wooden doors protect against harmful radiation transmission and are commonly used in medical environments, airports and industrial applications. Lead doors have inner layers of particle board and the outer wood or laminate is lead.
Lead Coated Doors Radiation protection products are made with only the best materials and workmanship available. With constant quality control and continuous inspection, it is possible to get the strongest and most practical lead-coated doors. To achieve the highest level of radiation protection, lead doors should always be installed using lead-coated frames.
Applications for leaded wooden doors
Radiation protection is critical to the safety of workers, patients and customers in areas where X-rays and other imaging equipment are used. Wooden lead door against radiation in:
Medical X-Ray rooms, PET or CT Scan
Wooden lead door from radiation protection products
Coated doors Radiation protection products are made using a layer of lead sheet in the center of the door. Wood cores are laminated under hydraulic pressure on each side of the lead.
Simple rail lead door with floor pulley
This type of lead door is designed and produced to increase efficiency. In this type of lead door, the rails and floor pulleys have been replaced so that the stretcher and wheelchair can move easily on them. This was done to solve some problems of sliding doors. To solve this problem, due to less pressure on the pulleys, it also helps to increase the life of the pulleys.
Simple lead door
In this type of doors, compressed wood is used, which has a high resistance due to the compactness of wood. Inside this type of doors, lead is used, which due to the use of lead and compressed wood, these doors have They are relatively heavy weight and therefore have high strength and have a long life and durability.
Automatic lead door
These types of doors are used in busy centers for ease of use and maintaining health standards. The mechanism of their use is as simple as lead doors, with the only difference that they are equipped with remote control for opening and closing. In this type of doors, equipment such as rails, motors and external boards are used.
Lead cover to protect against radiation therapy
The use of lead doors is a permanent solution for radiation protection and has more effective protection than lead coatings in partitions and movable protective forms. This is especially important for treatment rooms and other applications where employees are exposed to prolonged exposure to radiation.
Advantages and features of lead door installation are:
Provides effective floor-to-ceiling protection.
Designs flexibility for use on walls, floors and ceilings.
Eliminates the risk of radiation leakage with proper installation.
Available in a variety of thicknesses to meet a wide range of protective needs.
Made of lead coating to meet your protective needs
Why should we use lead doors?
When it comes to radiation protection, especially in nuclear medicine equipment, lead frames and doors are the only sensible choice. X-rays and gamma rays, like any part of the light spectrum, interact with matter. Interaction with the human body in any amount, even the smallest amount, or in cases of high, prolonged or repeated exposure is dangerous and deadly.
Because of its density, it uses a relatively small amount of lead, which almost protects against X-rays and gamma-ray exposure, so it is widely used in hospitals and nuclear power plants. They also protect other materials such as concrete and iron, but because the materials are denser, they must be used in much larger quantities.
When x-rays and gamma rays hit electrons in lead, the rays are basically absorbed and energy is released in the form of heat, which is lost throughout the harmless shield.
What is the service life of lead doors?
Lead doors typically have a longer service life than other doors due to their sturdy structure and the use of lead sheets. A door with a lead coating can be used for many years if quality and standard raw materials are used in them.
What should be the thickness of lead inside lead doors?
The standard design used in diagnostic applications is suitable for use inside walls, the density and overall thickness of which provide the necessary protection. If lead is the primary shielding material, this design assumes that it is mounted on the inner wall of the X-ray room.
To calculate the structural opening using a standard wood door frame (45 mm thick), add 100 mm in width and 50 mm in height to the recommended door size.
With the door open to you, should the hinge be on the left or right?
