Lead bricks and interlocking lead bricks can be used in new construction to reduce ceiling or wall thickness, thereby resulting in space savings. Lead bricks and interlocking lead bricks can also be used for adding extra shielding to existing rooms. Lead bricks produced by ABM Lead feature non-porous surfaces, and are clean and smooth. Other uses for lead bricks include nuclear shielding, walls, radioactive material shipping containers, ballast weight, coves, partitions or hot cells, and glove boxes. ABM Lead prides itself in meeting unique client specifications and requirements in the construction of lead bricks and interlocking lead bricks.
Interlocking lead bricks are used in applications where the highest protection level of shielding is needed from Gamma, Beta and X-ray radiation. Interlocking lead bricks can be easily assembled, modified, deconstructed and relocated in various situations where protective cells and wall systems are required, again depending on specific customer applications. Another advantage of interlocking lead bricks is their ability to prevent the leakage of radiation through spaces generally found in straight lead bricks. In addition, the interconnecting feature of interlocking lead bricks results in a sturdier and more stable wall system, ensuring that the wall created is prevented from toppling over.
ABM Lead has lead bricks and interlocking lead bricks available in a wide range of dimensions and weights for every customer’s requirements and specifications. Along with lead brick and interlocking lead brick capabilities, ABM Lead has repair and other custom services available.
