Bronglais Hospital Aberystwyth

Installing Control Booths, Windows, Doorsets and Lead Lining

Raybloc (X-Ray Protection) Ltd is proud to present a case study highlighting our exceptional collaboration with Bronglais Hospital in Aberystwyth. Our partnership involved the manufacturing and supply of top-of-the-line radiation shielding solutions that included Frameless Operator Screens, lacquered veneer finish lead-lined doorsets, PVC encapsulated lead-lined doorsets with astragal meeting stiles, and a window door combination set. As well as these fixings, Raybloc also supplied and installed the lead-lined boards for lining the walls and ceilings to create a completer radiation protective barrier between the controlled areas and their surroundings. These cutting-edge products have not only prioritised patient and staff safety but have also significantly contributed to optimising workflow efficiency and creating a healing environment.

Specifications and Requirements

Radiation Shielding Doorsets

Raybloc’s lead-lined doorsets for this project featured a range of finishes to suit their respective environments. In the X-ray room, a PVC postformed doorset with an astragal meeting stile was opted for by the client, whereas in the CT room, veneer doorsets were installed to suit the aesthetic of the control room and surrounding doors. These doorsets provided a traditional solution to the hospital’s radiation protection requirements while seamlessly blending with the existing architecture of Bronglais Hospital. The flush-mounted warning lights embedded within the doors serve as an alert system, ensuring the safety of patients and staff by indicating when the X-ray room is in use.

X-Ray Protective Viewing Window

The internal window made for Bronglais Hospital was a unique solution given it shared its frame with the lead-lined doorset between the CT room and the control room, making a door window combination set. Our installation of this internal viewing window enables healthcare professionals to maintain visual contact with patients undergoing X-ray procedures. This window features a hardwood lacquered frame that matches the doorset frame, coupled with large lead glass panels that provide excellent visibility into the controlled area, striking the perfect balance between safety and effective communication.

Frameless Operator X-Ray Screens

To further enhance radiation protection, Raybloc installed frameless X-ray screens to protect operators from within the same room as the patient. This innovative solution creates a protective barrier within the X-ray room, enabling close communication between radiographers and patients while eliminating the risk of radiation leakage. The frameless design of Raybloc’s control booths minimises dust traps and allows for easy cleaning, making them ideal for clinical environments.

The Challenge

Bronglais Hospital, a leading healthcare institution in Aberystwyth, Wales, is dedicated to providing exceptional patient care while upholding the highest standards of safety and innovation. To fulfil their radiation protection requirements, they turned to Raybloc (X-ray Protection) Ltd.

Installation of Customised Radiation Protection Solutions

Raybloc was entrusted with the comprehensive installation of a range of radiation shielding solutions throughout the hospital’s radiology department. The project encompassed the implementation of hygienic lead-lined doorsets, radiation-shielding internal windows, and an operator X-ray screen. These state-of-the-art additions were meticulously designed to maximise radiation protection while ensuring visibility and easy access, all while adhering to the highest hygienic standards to support both staff and the public. As well as these products, Raybloc also installed the lead-lined boards for the several control rooms involved in this project.

The Solution

In response to the specific requirements of the radiation protection advisor, Raybloc supplied and installed a complete radiation shielding package for Bronglais Hospital, meeting the agreed-upon timeline and maintaining our renowned standards of excellence in both product quality and service. T Richard Jones (Betws) Ltd’s Ben Davies, the site manager for this project, made the following comment on Raybloc’s role in this project:

“From the early stages of design and specification to project completion at Bronglais Hospital, it was a pleasure to work alongside Raybloc. The project was successful as deliveries were booked in advance, employees were punctual and committed to their work. The doors and screens received for the project were of great quality & fitted exceptionally well. Any issues which arose were dealt with professionally and in good time. TRJ thank you for the great team rapport and would happily work with Raybloc in the future”
