Wardray Premise

Lead Glass

Part of the Wardray Premise Total Radiation Shielding Package

We are a leading distributor for Corning Med-X® and Med-Gamma® glass for all types of radiation shielding involving X-ray and Gamma based PET radiation sources.

We carry large bulk stocks of x-ray shielded glass in sheet sizes 2000mm x 1000mm and four thicknesses which give lead equivalents from 1.5mmPb to 3.2mmPb @ 150kV. With our specially designed wall saw we are able to offer a fast ‘cut to order’ service.

Med-Gamma® is also available to special order, providing high quality, transparent and protective shielding from Gamma based radiation at 511KeV. It is manufactured in physical thicknesses from 7.0/8.5mm to 28.0/ 32.0mm providing respective lead equivalents from 2.0mm to 10.0mm

Both types of glass can also be provided in sheet sizes up to 2800mm x 1400mm for wide fields of vision. However, please take into consideration the overall weights and handling implications

Cleaning and Maintenance of Lead Glass


Do not use harsh abrasive cleaning chemicals or cleaning materials as these could damage the surface and leave scratch marks, which cannot be removed. Never allow any liquid cleaning materials to dry on the glass surfaces as this will leave water marks which will be very difficult to remove. Use only mild detergents.

We make the following recommendations:

  • General cleaning for the removal of dust film etc. - use a soft cotton cloth together with isopropyl alcohol and clean in a smooth circular motion.
  • Cleaning of difficult stains - use a mild detergent diluted with water to the manufacturer's recommendations and clean with a soft cotton cloth, and using a further soft cotton cloth, clean with isopropyl alcohol.

Regular cleaning with Wardray’s professional strength Glass Cleaner will ensure surfaces remain clean and clear of any surface grease.
