Medi-Ray™ is the hallmark of radiation safety.Through development of nuclear shielding and products for radiopharmaceutical safety, we have promoted public safety for decades.
All medical diagnostic devices that use radiation require that the device be placed in a shielding to protect the machine operator and others who may be nearby from the radiation. Lead is used to shield these radiation equipment which allow safe radiation imaging. Also, the containers of nuclear medicines and other equipment are shielded with lead to ensure safety of people around.
When it comes to providing radiation shielding from every day used devices such as medical / X-ray and airport detection devices the best choice is using lead as shielding material. Lead has proven to be the most economic and effective material for protecting humans from radiation producing devices.
Lead shipping containers are used for a variety of reasons. For instance, they are used to transport radioactive materials, to meet DOT compliance and transportation safety needs with a wide variety of proprietary coatings, plastic encasements and specialized linings in numerous shapes and sizes.
Medi-RayTM offers a comprehensive line of lead shipping containers for all your shipping needs. Medi-RayTM has been the largest supplier of radio-pharmaceutical shipping containers since 1974. In over 30 years of product development, Medi-RayTM has revolutionized the design and production of every type of shielded medical containers.

Lead bricks originate from the purest lead available and are popular for constructing lead walls in places where the need for radiation protection is high. Lead bricks are common in nuclear reactors to shield high intensity radiation produced in them.
Medi-RayTM provides lead bricks with interlocking features. The different types of lead bricks supplied by Medi-RayTM are:
Standard lead bricks
This is the basic type of rectangular lead brick. Medi-RayTM manufactures standard rectangular lead bricks of different sizes and thicknesses based on customer’s requirements.
Interlocking lead bricks
Interlocking lead bricks provide the highest level of radiation protection. They are used for building lead walls, and for fitting corners of lead walls and built using standard rectangular lead bricks.
Dura Block lead bricks are one of the types of interlocking lead bricks manufactured by Medi-RayTM. This brick can create a wall but cannot fit corners.
Lead barrier walls and caves
Medi-RayTM manufactures and pre-assembles custom lead walls according to the requirements of the customer. They can be directly installed in the area where radiation protection is needed.
Uses of lead bricks
- Used in x-ray facilities
- Defense industry
- Nuclear power plants
- Laboratories where radioactive experiments are performed
