Specifications and Requirements

Radiation Shielding Doorsets

Raybloc’s lead-lined doorsets with flush glazing were meticulously crafted to provide optimal protection against radiation while seamlessly blending with the hospital’s existing architecture. The flush-mounted warning lights embedded within the doors alert personnel when the X-ray room is in use, ensuring the safety of both patients and staff.

X-Ray Protective Viewing Window

Our installation of internal viewing windows allows healthcare professionals to maintain visual contact with patients undergoing X-ray procedures. These windows are constructed with primer-painted frames so that they could match the frame of the doorset and a large piece of lead glass to provide optimal vision into the controlled area, striking the ideal balance between safety and effective communication.

Frameless Operator X-Ray Screen

To further enhance radiation protection, Raybloc installed a frameless X-ray screen. This innovative solution creates a barrier within the X-ray room allowing close communication between the radiographer and the patient, eliminating the risk of radiation leakage without obstructing visibility or impeding workflow. The frameless design of Raybloc’s control booths minimises potential areas for dust traps and allows for an easy-to-clean finish, perfect for clinical environments such as this one.

The Challenge

The NHS Heartlands Hospital is based in Birmingham, West Midlands. It is a leading healthcare institution serving a diverse community in the heart of England. As a busy and renowned hospital, they prioritise delivering exceptional patient care while maintaining the highest standards of safety and innovation. To meet their radiation protection needs, they sought the expertise of Raybloc (X-ray Protection) Ltd.

Install Fully Bespoke Radiation Protection Products

Raybloc was tasked with installing a comprehensive range of radiation shielding solutions throughout the hospital’s radiology department. The scope of the project included the installation of hygienic lead-lined doorsets, radiation-shielding viewing windows, and operator X-ray screens. These cutting-edge additions were designed to optimise radiation protection without compromising visibility or ease of access to a high standard of hygienic design to support staff and members of the public alike.

The Solution

Meeting the specific requirements of the radiation protection advisor, Raybloc supplied and installed the complete radiation shielding package for Heartlands, on-time and to our usual top-of-the-range standard for our products and service. Blinds were retrofitted onto the flush-glazing of the doors at the request of the client for privacy purposes, a different approach to our usual integrated flush blinds.
