Lead Chevron Bricks

Lead Bricks for Specialist Radiation Facilities

In most applications, lead-lined boards are the most cost-effective solution to creating a radiation protective shield for a given area. However, where lead protection must reach levels higher than what can be achieved with leaded boards (10 mm Pb or higher), lead bricks assure effective radiation safety.

Chevron blocks are interlocking bricks with male and female v-shaped edges to provide a flush joint with zero potential for gaps between bricks. Unlike concrete or steel alternatives, the use of interlocking joints means these lead rails can be fixed easily for fast assembly in an efficient manner. Similarly, if the lead plates are no longer required, removing them is as simple, allowing you to sell your lead bricks in some cases more than what you purchased them for. This no-mess installation process makes lead bricks a quick, cost-effective, and environmentally friendly solution to radiation shielding, suitable for temporary and permanent radiation-protection.

What Thickness Should Lead Bricks be?

Lead brick shielding is extremely useful for highly energetic radiation projects, given an extensive amount of lead is required to attenuate high-energy radiation. These lead brick products are most commonly used for shielding in nuclear and healthcare scenarios where gamma radiation is concerned. However, depending on this application, the frequency of the emission from the radiation source, and the distance from the source to the wall, the thickness of the lead shielding required will vary.

Raybloc’s heavy-duty lead bricks are available in thicknesses from 10 mm to 50 mm in 1 mm intervals to meet your exact requirements. The interlocking lead bricks vary in size with lengths from 450 mm to 900 mm to suit your project.

Assured Safety in Specialist Facilities

Wherever shielding is required to prevent the leakage of radiation, Raybloc will advise, supply, and install products to guarantee maximum protection to maximum quality. Interlocking chevron lead is absolutely no exception to this rule, and when dealing with expensive, expert projects such as those involving these lead blocks, compromise is inadvisable. We will not only manufacture your products, but our team of experts are always happy to help you through every step of the way to ensure that you achieve success in your project timely and proper.

Installation details for corners, walls, floors, and ceilings for our lead-lining products are available upon request.

Versatile Radiation Shielding

Lead bricks are ideal for additional shielding to existing rooms where sheet lead is impractical due to the high-end specification of a radiation protection job. They can be easily fixed to existing walls and ceilings and similarly removed if necessary due to the tongue and groove configuration style of the lead blocks.

I can confirm that Raybloc supplied an X-ray screen for Brentford Riverside Clinic’s refurbishment. The screens were supplied on time and with the appropriate manuals and paperwork for our qualified joiners to assemble and fit on-site. In all our experience, working with Raybloc has been a positive one and we hope that this carries on into the future.
