Wool Blankets for Radiation Shielding

June 24, 2020

Lead Wool Blankets provide shielding from harmful radiation in various areas where gases or uranium rods are cooling and creating high dose rates. The blankets can be hung on piping or on a nuclear-shield frame. Specialty handles and buckles are available for moving panels and magnets and clips can be designed to accommodate lead blankets permanently around areas of the plant.


All lead blankets are constructed by encapsulating the QQ-C-40 lead with 18 oz coated vinyl within a CNC quilted backside to prevent the lead wool from shifting. All covers are standard with RF heat sealing on the outside perimeter, as well as heavy-duty number 5 grommets for handing the blankets.


For high temperatures and permanent applications, the lead blankets can be encapsulated with a high-heat silicone impregnated fiberglass composite outer layer for protection up to 500°F.
