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.
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

Employees who work in x-ray rooms and nuclear industries run a high risk of incurring diseases like cancer due to repeated exposure to radiation. To avoid such fatalities, several lead products act as barriers to shield radiation and protect people working with or around the radiation scattering equipment.
Lead is a dense metal with a high atomic number and it can shield against all types of harmful radiation x-rays, alpha-rays, and gamma rays. When you visit a medical facility, you can see that the x-ray technician moves behind a lead wall. You may wonder why the patient is not provided with the shielding material. This is because the patient may be exposed to x-ray radiation once or twice a year but the technician is exposed to the radiations repeatedly, maybe for several years because it is his job occupation.
Industries that deal with radiation also need to protect equipment from radiation. The equipment is shielded with lead casing or lead walls to control the intensity of radiation. Radioactive materials are stored in lead containers and radioactive waste is disposed of in lead bins. Lead containers are also used to transport radioactive materials. The lead transportation containers are specially designed to avoid any breakage or leakage during transportation.
Medi-Ray is a leader in the manufacture of radiation shielding products. They have been developing lead radiation shielding components since 1970. If you need radiation shielding products for your industry, contact Medi-Ray at 877-898-3003.
