Wardray Premise X-ray Protective Screens are manufactured from a series of solid panels with a lead core faced on both sides by plastic laminate. Fixed angle joints are fully lead protected. Hinged wings are available with full protection and are fitted with a foot operated door holder.
The minimum recommended height is 2000mm in a panoramic style with 1000mm high solid panels and 1000mm high lead glass to the top edge. As all screens are purpose made any other combination of solid panel and glass can be accommodated. We recommend that using lead glass in stock sizes will eliminate waste and offer a more cost effective solution.
The lead thickness will be determined by a Radiation Protection Advisor (RPA) and will normally be based on one of the British Standard codes listed together with the nearest lead glass equivalent. We recommend that you check that the slightly lower figures for lead glass are acceptable or advise us if the higher thickness is specified. This will result in a significant cost increase.
Please note: With the exception of end sections supported hinged wings, the tube sections are not lead lined. This adds 40mm to the stated height and to each free end.
Screens are finished with satin anodised aluminium sections consisting of channels, angle sections to joints and beads to glazing areas. Panels with tube sections to the exposed edges give additional support and rigidity.
Although full height solid panels can be introduced in any section of a screen maximum vision into the room area is normally a preferred option. We do, however, require a solid infill panel where a screen meets a wall. A width of 100mm is sufficient and allows for scribing to walls that are not upright, eliminating any possibility of radiation leakage.
On receipt of a drawing of the room layout, indicating the approximate size and position of the screen, we would be pleased to offer planning advice and assistance to keep costs to a minimum.
All screens are made to order to suit customer and site requirements.

Variations on the standard range of Protective Screens provide radiation barriers combined with a workstation for A & E Departments, Intensive Care and Coronary Units. Three styles and sizes are illustrated and give an indication of our ability to meet specific customer requirements.
Screens are available with or without lead glass windows and may also be fitted with Vistamatic™ shutters. Shelves, cupboards and other storage facilities are produced to meet individual needs.
Workstations are usually finished in white laminate for easy cleaning. Other colours are available on request. Castors are anti-static and opposite castors have a locking facility.
The lead thickness required should be established in consultation with your local Radiation Protection Advisor(RPA). However, the overall weight and manoeuvrability must also be carefully considered.
Mobile screens can be made in any size of solid and glazed panels to suit customer requirements. Some typical examples are illustrated here, giving an indication of our ability to meet specific customer requirements.
All screens are fitted with anti-static, locking castors. Quotations based on these or similar designs are available on request.

New Patterned X-ray ScreensTop
Wardray were recently approached by a Children’s Hospital requesting child friendly x-ray screens that distract a child during a procedure.
Our team came up with an in-house design and the customer was delighted with the result. Several other designs have been created to suit general and paediatric environments, making a functional X-ray screen visually interesting.
These screens offer the same excellent protection as our plain screens. The finish is as durable and can be cleaned in the same manner.
These designs can be added to any of the many variations of screening provided by Wardray.
Please contact our Estimating Department for more details.
