Protective screens and curtains
Protective screens are often called barriers, which consist of an opaque part as a base and transparent lead glass. They provide protection for all or part of the body of the doctor or radiological technician, depending on the model.
Lead glass can be of different sizes, adjustable or not adjustable in height. Lead acrylic glass, which provides protection with the most common lead equivalent of 1.5 mm or 2 mm, gives exceptional visibility, optically clear. The elegant design allows easy maintenance of the screen base and lead glass.
Barriers can be stationary or mobile, with built-in wheels so they can be moved more easily from room to room, and are used as part of any procedure during imaging: fluoroscopy, x-rays, CT, mammography and the like.
Protective curtains are most often used within medical institutions, such as emergency centers, hospitals and in any place where low levels of secondary radiation are present. They are made of vinyl with lead impurities. They are available in the following lead equivalents: 0.50mm and 1mm.
