It’s believed that Calder is one of the last remaining producers of cold forged lead bricks in Europe.
Calder produces economically and effective forms of lead bricks which are used by the nuclear industry to shielded rooms, walls, chambers or cells.
Our two shielding systems use individual bricks of 50mm or 100mm thickness, which are designed to lock into the lead bricks surrounding it. The unique design of the bricks enables them to be layered in order to achieve the thickness of shielding required by the application.
Our high quality cold forged bricks weigh between 2.8kg and 17kg dependent upon their size and function. This relatively light weight makes on site fabrication simple and safe.
