Many companies and organizations use the standard to improve the way they work without even being certified. The benefits of ISO 9001 are not fabricated; companies large and small have prospered from following a quality management system that allowed them to discover cost and efficiency savings. Here are the main benefits of an ISO 9001 certification:

Features and Benefits of Lead Bricks

Lead bricks are used in various shielding requirements, including x-ray radiation and nuclear shielding. However, they can also be used for radioactive isotope creation, ballast weights and counterbalances. Lead bricks are available in a variety of sizes, and in different design options to suit shielding and weight applications. Below are the features and benefits of lead bricks:

Key features

  • Lead bricks are cast out of 99.9% pure virgin, high quality lead.
  • They are commonly used for shielding in applications where lead sheet shielding is impractical or not available in sizes or thicknesses required.
  • Can be adapted for many different applications, in walls, bunkers, coves, glove-boxes, hot cells, partitions, nuclear shielding, transporting radioactive materials or as a ballast weight.
  • Available in a wide range of sizes, thicknesses and shapes and interlocking designs to suit your application.
  • Maximum protection against x-ray beta and gamma radiation with interlocking configurations that prevent radiation leakage through gaps. The interlocking configurations also provide a stable and a sturdier wall system to prevent it from falling.
  • They can be cut on site in any direction without losing the interlocking capability. A double row can also be stacked behind the first in a staggered pattern to prevent the loss of radiation effectively.
  • Machine finished lead bricks are also available.

Benefits

  • Lead bricks reduce exposure to harmful high energy radiation.
  • They create a safe and healthful environment.
  • They are flexible—Lead bricks can be easily erected, modified, disassembled and relocated in the field to create protective wall systems and cells to suit your application.
  • They are custom designed and manufactured in different sizes and weights according to customer specifications.
