Lead doors

Lead doors – radiation protection that is built to last

Quality radiation shielding, flawless operation and able to withstand the rigours of daily use; we understand that whilst lead doors may be a functional consideration they still need to reliably protect staff and patients, work with the minimum of maintenance and look great.

Available as hinged, sliding or power operated, our lead doors are designed for use in healthcare, dentistry, veterinary and industrial environments. All are made-to-measure to fit any structural opening where radiation protection is required.

We use high quality fixings including Royde and Tucker H101 lift-off hinges to provide ease of installation and longevity.

Should you have specific requirements we are more than happy to accommodate them and can advise on the most suitable components and configuration.

Factory fitted, durable laminates to create a superb finish.
