Room Design And Layout
When protection is required there is no substitute for skill and experience. PXR has been supplying radiation shielding for nearly 30 years. We are capable of supplying shielding to customer specification. This allows for greater flexibility in the design for our customers. We work in partnership with you to develop appropriate designs to make assessments on the proper shielding required. During the construction stage of your facility, we will work with you to lead shield the walls of your x-ray room prior to construction completion.
We supply a full line of radiation shielding products. They include doors (solid core wood, lead lined, and steel strapped), door frames, lead lined gypsum board and plywood, leaded glass and acrylic, lead sheets, lead lined frames for doors, windows, pass boxes, and many other lead products. We are also capable of lead shielding doors supplied by our customers. PXR uses only the finest quality materials and exercises the best quality control possible.
We are able to set up room for new building or install in existing rooms.
Lead Sheet - Used for radiation shielding for x-ray, CT, C-arms and other similar radiation producing rooms, It also is used for many roof projects. Lead is the dominant material used in x-ray and radiation shielding applications. Lead roll and sheet can be ordered on drywall also Call for details.
SPECIFICATIONS AND CHARACTERISTICS OF SHEET LEAD
pure lead sheet which meets Federal Specification QQ-L-201f (Federal
Specification covering lead sheet used for chemical and structural purposes).
Sheet lead is readily available in 1lb, 2lb, 4lb, 6lb, and 8lb (lbs./sq. ft.).
Other thicknesses are available, including lead plate (up to 1" thick),
Call for details.
Sheet lead comes in standard size of 4'x8' and 1lb only can be orderd in 4'x20'. Sheet lead can be cut to any size, up to a maximum of 4' x 25' (4' x 20' for 2# material, 4' x 20' for 1# material) call for details.
Safe-T-Lite Lead Glass (Shatter Resistant)
Saf-T-Lite™ Radiation Protector is made up of LX-57B Lead Glass, a PCB Inter layer and Float Glass in a laminated sandwich. (This is just the glass only, complete windows are available see )
Saf-T-Lite™ Radiation Protector Glass is the only lead glass that meets the requirements of ANSI 297.1-1984 and 16 CFR 1201 Cat. II which constitutes acceptance of its safety and shatter resistant characteristics and retention of these characteristics.
Stock sizes from 8" x 10" up to 48” x 96” (call for additional sizes)

Radiation Shielding Plan (One X-Ray Room)
Radiation shielding plan designed by a licensed Physicist. This plan will mathematically determine the required shielding materials in the room to prevent any scatter radiation from harming the x-ray technician and persons outside the x-ray room. After purchase download the example and required information. Email back your rough sketch of the dimension of the room. Once we receive the layout we will email your plane in a few business days.
