Specifications and Requirements

Radiation Shielding Doorsets

Raybloc’s lead-lined doorsets for Singleton Hospital featured a range of finishes to complement their respective environments. The X-ray room opted for a PVC post-formed doorset with an astragal meeting stile, while veneer doorsets were installed in the CT room to match the control room’s aesthetics and surrounding doors. These doorsets provided a traditional solution to the hospital’s radiation protection requirements, seamlessly blending with the existing architecture of the hospital. Additionally, flush-mounted warning lights embedded within the doors served as an alert system, ensuring the safety of patients and staff by indicating when the X-ray room was in use. Not only did the door-mounted warning lights add a futuristic touch, but also provided the perfect solution to the lack of wall space next to the X-ray doorset for the control room that would have traditionally caused an issue for mounting box warning lights on the walls.

X-Ray Protective Viewing Window

Our manufacture and installation of this internal viewing window allows healthcare professionals to maintain visual contact with patients undergoing X-ray procedures from the safety of the control room. The frame and architraves were manufactured with a primer painted finish to allow them to be decorated to match the frames and architraves of the radiation-protective doorsets. Positioned so that the top edge of the frame was the same height as the doorset frames, these fixings provided a necessary yet aesthetically pleasing layout for the CT and control room.

Frameless Operator X-Ray Screen

For the X-ray room, we installed one of our frameless control booths to the specific lengths requested by the customer; featuring a borderless X-ray glass panel on its top half, and an easy-to-clean laminated lead-lined panel for its bottom half. Quickly becoming the standard for X-ray rooms, our Frameless X-ray Screens are a radiographer’s best friend given they are the least obtrusive option available for the market and are specifically designed to feature as minimum dust traps as possible.

The Challenge

Singleton Hospital, a renowned healthcare institution in Swansea, is committed to providing exceptional patient care while upholding the highest standards of safety and innovation. To meet 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 wide 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, an operator X-ray screen and the leaded wall panelling of each room. These state-of-the-art additions were meticulously designed to maximise radiation protection while ensuring visibility and easy access. Moreover, they adhered to the highest hygienic standards, supporting the well-being of both staff and the public.

The Solution

In response to the specific requirements of the radiation protection advisor, Raybloc provided and installed a complete radiation shielding package for Singleton Hospital. The project was completed within the agreed-upon timeline while maintaining our renowned standards of excellence in terms of product quality and service. T. Richard Jones (Betws) Ltd, the contractor working with Raybloc made the following comments in relation to the works that we manufactured and installed:

‘Thank you to Raybloc for the great work on the DR room and new CT scanner at singleton hospital, all work was carried out with no problems or delays.

Hopefully we can work together on a new project soon. Thanks again for moving the time scales of the program. As a result we were completed on time and handover went smoothly with no problems.’
