Lead Bricks use for Radioactive Shielding and Radiation Shielding
Lead is an important material because of its property to radiate the harmful radiation, thus acting as a shield in place of Nuclear works and X-ray regions.
Lead Bricks are basically the rectangular bricks with inter-locking capability. These are mainly used for the purpose of making shielding Walls in case of large area or process, where chances of radiation are very high.
Lead Bricks are a convenient solution to temporary or permanent shielding/storage situations. Easy to stack, un-stack and relocate, Lead Bricks provide maximum protection wherever needed. Produced from the highest quality Lead, each brick has standard hardness and a flat, smooth surface, allowing a perfectly flush fit, even at sharp right angles.
They give protection against radioactive radiation in laboratories and working environment (wall assembling).Interlocking Lead Bricks make it easy to erect, modify and relocate protective walls and caves of any size.
Gravita India offers Straight type Lead Bricks for radiation shielding where interlocking bricks will not suit your application. They can be cut on site in any direction without the fear of loosing the interlocking capability. A Double row stacked behind the first in a staggered pattern can combat the loss of radiation commonly known to happen through the first row gaps.
Gravita India Lead Brick shielding provides the best choice for construction where temporary, permanent shields or storage areas are required, offering you the flexibility in your design and construction choices. Lead Bricks are ideal for adding additional shielding to existing rooms and can be used in new construction as a method to reduce wall or ceiling thickness to achieve space savings. Cast from 99.94% pure virgin high quality Lead as a standard or when more hardness in the bricks is required antimony is added. Our bricks are relatively smooth, clean and have a non-porous surface. Lead bricks can be used for walls, coves, glove-boxes, hot cells or partitions, the transportation of radioactive materials, and nuclear shielding or simply as ballast weight. Bricks are available in a wide range of sizes, thicknesses and shapes to suit your application. They are commonly used for shielding when sheet Lead is impractical or not available in sizes or thicknesses you may require. Straight or interlocking styles are available from our stock.
