Lead Lined Drywall
El Dorado's lead lined drywall (also known as lead lined sheetrock or lead lined gypsum) is available in 1/2" or 5/8" thicknesses. Our lead lined drywall is type X fire code sheetrock meeting classification ASTM C 36. We use pure lead sheeting which meets federal specification QQ-L-201-F, Grade C. The lead sheet is factory laminated to the back side of the drywall for superior performance. The lead extends 1" beyond on vertical edges of the drywall to allow for overlapping of the joints which eliminates the need for separate lead joint strips. 2" wide strips in lieu of the 49" lead width are available. Our lead lined drywall is extremely high quality and built using only the finest materials and craftsmanship.
El Dorado Metals offers a wide range of radiation shielding design services which include lead brick wall and ceiling systems complete with structural steel supports when needed. We have crews trained in the safe and quality installation of lead brick and lead plate and the associated steel structures that often are required.
Interlocking lead bricks are excellent for adding additional lead shielding to existing therapy vaults or treatment rooms as well as in new construction where available space is an issue. Lead brick can be installed in walls and ceilings where access is limited or difficult.
