Shielded rooms, work spaces, chambers or cells can be constructed quickly and economically using our interlocking lead bricks and lead chevron rail. The two shielding systems use are individual lead bricks of 50mm or 100mm thickness, which are designed to lock into surrounding lead bricks. The unique design of the lead bricks enables them to be layered in order to achieve precisely the thickness of shielding required by the vessel. The second system used is chevron rails, please see lead chevron section in Healthcare (Lead Chevrons)
Calder is believed to be the last remaining producer of cold forged lead bricks in Europe. Our high quality cold forged lead bricks weigh between 2.8kg and 17kg dependent upon their size and function. This relatively light weight makes on site fabrication simple and safe.
