Lead Brick shielding offers flexible solution for temporary or permanent shielding

 

MarShield provides Lead bricks which 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. We offer interlocking Chevron style bricks for maximum protection where the highest level of X-ray, Beta and Gamma shielding is required or Straight type lead bricks for radiation shielding where interlocking bricks will not suit your application.
