Calder produces a range of products for the healthcare market which are designed to assist in radiation shielding. Our heavy duty, non-flammable and easy to decontaminate lead blankets provides shielding against gamma radiation associated with nuclear medicine. These multi-purpose lead blankets can be used vertically or horizontally and can even be wrapped around sensitive equipment or plant. Many lead blankets use lead wool which can open up or migrate, leaving voids in the shielding.
Calders lead blankets are produced using lead sheet which is designed for added safety and manufactured to BS EN 12588 standards. This sheet is sealed inside a durable plastic envelope and this method of construction produces a flexible blanket yet eliminates the potential for voids.
