Midland Lead

Tennants can offer a full range of lead lined boards from Midland lead. Midland lead sheets are available in thicknesses varying from 0.44mm to 3.55mm to suit many different radiation shielding duties. Their thin lead sheet has often been used by the medical industry in X-ray rooms and for portable X-ray screens, while their heavy grade lead sheet is used by the marine industry in nuclear powered vessels. A combined knowledge of shielding technology with their experience in manufacturing lead sheet has resulted in their production of a wide selection of lead lined boards and related products suitable for radiation protection in the healthcare sector. All products are built around customers’ specific requirements, are manufactured to the highest quality and fully comply with specific radiation protection standards.
