A complete ‘Door Set’ from Raybloc will comprise of a leaded door, leaded frame and leaded architraves. This system once installed correctly will ensure X-ray integrity from the door on to the wall with no possible X-ray leakage. Provided it is fitted in the correct manner, Raybloc certify the integrity of all our doorsets.

Doors can be supplied separately, however without supplying the frame we can not determine the existing X-ray integrity that the frame has therefore can not be certified by Raybloc.

Also, the nature of leaded doors is that they are heavy. All Raybloc door frames are hardwood and guarantee to take the load of the door to prevent dropping, dragging and damage to the floor and door over time.

Another benefit of doorsets is that the door is workshop pre-hung in its frame. This saves a considerable amount of time on site by not having to try and make the heavy door fit, reducing the risk of any onsite problems.

With correct installation all Raybloc products are guaranteed to provide full x-ray protection with a tried and tested manufacturing history with proven RPA test records. Quality control systems ensure products are precisely manufactured to exact specifications in order to be right first time.

We manufacture in a range of finishes. Ranges include primer paint, plastic laminate (i.e. Formica/Altofina ), factory lacquer finished veneer, to full PVC encapsulation (i.e. Acrovyn).
