X-Ray Lead Glass from Ray-Bar Engineering Corp.


RAY-BAR ENGINEERING CORPORATION is a major provider of X-Ray/Radiation Protective Lead Glass radiation shielding products worldwide for over sixty-five (65) years. Specialty RAY-BAR X-Ray/Radiation Protective Lead Glass is utilized when a clear view and radiation shielding is of absolute priority in diagnostic, therapy, isotopic or nuclear radiation sources - used for medical treatment, imaging, testing, inspection, experimentation or energy production.

Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass compared to Regular Plate Glass for Radiation Shielding

Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass is specifically formulated to efficiently attenuate and protectively shield against X-Ray Gamma Radiation by utilizing a unique combination of a heavy density blend and also a proprietary high content composition of heavy oxides and minerals for maximum radiation resistant shielding performance with the least amount of glass thickness mass while still providing excellent optical clear view clarity and a non-browning optimal level of light transmission in providing code compliant radiation life and safety protection for the medical technician while also allowing an excellent clear view of the patient during critical medical diagnostic imaging procedures.

When properly utilizing Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass per current National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement structural medical shielding guidelines compared to other acrylic based glazing options or thick plate glass types the advantage is obvious in typical medical diagnostic imaging control window applications as just 5/16" thick standard Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass provides better than 2mm+ lead radiation attenuation protective shielding equivalency performance than up to 4" of dark green heavy plate glass or up to 2" of dark honey color Lead Acrylic, both of which would filter visible light down to very low transmissions providing a very poor view compared to Ray-Bar's X-Ray Glass clear bright view. From all aspects with Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass the choice is always clear.

RAY-BAR 5/16" X-RAY PROTECTIVE LEAD GLASS meets Federal Specification DD-G-451.

RAY-BAR X-RAY PROTECTIVE LEAD GLASS meets National Council of Radiation Protection (NCRP) Report No. 49 and No.147 criteria and standards. Ray-Bar's Standard X-Ray Protective Lead Glass is typically utilized in medical diagnostic imaging control windows for applications of 150kvp x-ray gamma radiation energies or less such as in Radiology,Fluoroscopy,Angiography,Cardiac Catherization Labs,Computerized Tomography(C.T. Scan),Chiropractic X-Ray and Mammography Rooms. Ray-Bar also offers higher shielding equivalency X-Ray Protective Lead Glass for utilization in high energy gamma radiation shielding applications of 511kvp such as imaging control windows for Positron Emission Tomography Rooms (PET Scanners) or in Medical Radiation Therapy / Oncology Cancer Treatment facility rooms such as Gamma Knife,Simulator rooms,Brachytherapy,Dose Calibration,Hot Labs, or High Dose Radiation (HDR Rooms). Additionally Ray-Bar offers specialized X-Ray Glass for Industrial applications in Non-Destructive Testing (NDT Rooms) or for certain Nuclear or High Energy Isotopic shielding of Hot Cells or Glove Boxes. All Radiation Shielding requirements for X-Ray Glass Control Windows in any medical or industrial application or use must always be determined by the customers/end users qualified health radiation physicist , radiation expert or radiation safety professional as currently defined by NCRP, ICRP or CRPA. Ray-Bar is also a proud member of the U.S.Green Building Council and the Canada Green Building Council and can assist in documenting and submitting Ray-Bar's various X-Ray Glass Radiation shielding products for your hospital or medical center's LEED materials and resources (MR) credits to apply for achieving LEED certification for the construction project.
