ProtectX Lead X-Ray Radiation Shielding Glass

PROTECT-X is lead x-ray radiation shielding glass from Glassopolis. Part of the PROTECT series of products, PROTECT-X works to protect people by attenuating x-ray radiation particularly in hospital, medical and security applications. For architectural applications it is generally specified by its ‘lead equivalency’, which is the degree to which it shields against radiation, as measured as the thickness of the equivalent protection from solid lead in inches or mm. The actual glass thickness can vary depending on the amount of x-ray protection needed and the lead density of any given batch. PROTECT-X lead x-ray radiation shielding glass is typically ordered in cut-to-size pieces by glass contractors, radiation room contractors and OEM manufacturers.
