Heavy lead installation for a local non-destructive testing company
NDT Midlands is an independently owned company offering high quality non-destructive testing solutions for all industry sectors across the UK.
We were approached by NDT Midlands for us to create a lead lined enclosure including a sliding X-ray protective door set incorporating 6mm of lead for their new x-ray test facility.

What we did...
Constructed X-ray protective wall & ceiling boards to create a 6mm lead enclosure.
Design and manufactured a sliding door set capable of providing 6mm lead protection. We had to ensure the door would cover a large opening size and be able to be operated manually. We achieved this by manufacturing the door in two sections.
Installed two layers of 3.15mm Pb lead boards to the walls and ceilings to create a total coverage exceeding 6mm.
Lead battens and angles were installed where boards met to prevent radiation leakage.
A heavy duty track was installed above the opening to take the weight of the 6mm sliding door.
A floor channel was created in order for the sliding door to sit below floor level to prevent radiation leakage.
We trawled the internet to look for a company to build us an X-ray room. How lucky were we to find Raybloc, two miles down the road! You couldn’t wish to meet a nicer bunch of people. Very professional and very helpful. A superb company to deal with.Managing Director – NDT Midlands
