Lead-lined drywall and lead-lined plywood products are ideal for radiation shielding and soundproofing applications. These products are routinely found as walls and ceilings for radiation shielding in hospitals, dentist offices, diagnostic medical facilities, veterinary clinics, and chiropractor offices.
Lead-lined drywall consists of a thin uniform layer of lead sheet adhered to the surface of an industry-standard 5/8” fire-coded piece of drywall (1/2” drywall available upon request). Lead-lined plywood encompasses a layer of lead affixed to the surface of fire retardant plywood, plywood for this application is typically provided in a ¾” thickness.
Drywall is recommended for walls requiring less than 1/8 inch thick lead. Plywood is suggested for walls that require lead greater than 1/8 inch thick. Several drywall and plywood sizes and lead thicknesses are available to accommodate various customer needs and physics requirements.
