The Challenge... The Solution...
Apollo Building Services was working on room refurbishments at Calder Vets in Dewsbury and approached Raybloc X-ray Protection to provide the radiation shielding elements. The room required a large X-ray glass window to protect from 150KV X-rays in a CT room.
The X-ray doors were specified to have continuous protective barriers, to prevent X-rays getting out of the room to have a fully PVC encapsulated finish and an unleaded door to match. Both leaded doors were required to have warning lights, vision panels with kick plates added for extra protection from damage and to be a high level of infection control standards including with the ironmongery used.
Raybloc provided two lead lined X-ray door sets, matching the RPA report lead equivalents requirements and added the addition request of a 166mm x 716mm vision panel and Raybloc’s exclusive flush mounted warning light in each door set, with a kick plate added for additional protection from damage to the door from animals or trolleys.
Spring loaded floor sockets were used for easy clean and infection control standards. Raybloc also manufactures and provided a large X-ray protective window set 2990mm x 1100mm and a 2.65PB lead equivalence and a fully encapsulated matching frame and a matching finish non-leaded single to complete the room. This allowed Apollo Building Services to carry out the installation and the room was completed and fully operational in February 2018.
