Aluminum X-ray doors will work very well in places where it is necessary to effectively safeguard against excessive and harmful X-ray radiation. Doors are one of many screens commonly applied for the purpose of minimizing hazards associated with the emission of ionizing radiation and its adverse impact on the environment. In practice, X-ray doors serve for radiological protection of the personnel operating the radiation-generating apparatus and of bystanders in the vicinity of rooms where such apparatus is used. Aluminum X-ray doors are a very effective radiation protection screen, which is why they are an excellent safeguards for any buildings where anti-radiation protection is required. Like most aluminum constructions, they are solid, durable and easy to operate.
are made according to custom order, with consideration of detailed guidelines given in radiation protection designs for individual rooms. Radiation protection designs are usually an integral part of the construction designs for buildings in which rooms are planned to be equipped with apparatus emitting harmful radiation. The design may define the type of door, its material, method of opening and dimensions, but above all, it specifies its insulating power and radiation protection capacity expressed as the thickness of the lead layer or its equivalent. Aluminum X-ray door production technology allows for the fabrication of swing or sliding doors in single- or double-leaf version and in a very broad range of dimensions. Aluminum X-ray doors are manufactured as solid or glazed with protective glass with the appropriate lead equivalent. To ensure full protection against radiation, the anti-radiation filling is applied in both the leafs and frames of aluminum X-ray doors.
is partially based on systemic window-door profiles, however due to the nature of the product, a certain number of shaped sections intended for door production are selected on an individual basis, outside of the system. The aluminum profiles and shaped aluminum sheets used to fabricate X-ray doors provide them with exceptional quality and durability, guaranteeing many years of failure-free operation. Radiological protection of the door is ensured by placing lead sheet of the appropriate thickness within the leafs and frame, effectively reducing penetration by radiation and thereby minimizing the hazard associated with its adverse impact on the environment. The structural filling of X-ray door leafs providing the door with the proper stabilization is a layer of high-density polyurethane foam or an extruded polystyrene panel. Thanks to a design based on aluminum profiles and polyurethane filling of the leaf, X-ray doors are distinguished by exceptional lightness, while also having the appropriate stiffness and mechanical resistance. The filling of aluminum X-ray door leafs is also a very good acoustic insulator. Aluminum door leafs serving for protection against radiation are typically made as solid, however it is possible to produce leafs in a glazed variant. Glazings in X-ray doors often play the role of observation windows, so they should provide the appropriate field of vision while also effectively protecting against radiation, which is why they are filled with totally transparent protective lead class with a Pb equivalent corresponding to the layer of lead sheet placed in the door leafs and frame.
makes it possible to produce both swing and sliding doors in single- or double-leaf versions. Swing doors are equipped with aluminum-steel frames, filled with a layer of lead sheet. The leaf of X-ray swing doors is fastened to the frame by means of a set of special hinges selected according to the weight and thickness of the leaf. Double-leaf swing doors have full radiological shielding at the line of contact between the active and passive leaf thanks to the application of a sleek cover strip filled with lead. The leafs of sliding X-ray doors are fastened in the top edge by special steel hangers on carriages moving in a guide. The bottom edge of the leaf is stabilized and guided by a guiding component situated outside of the door’s clearance. Such a solution does not require much force to operate and enables light and accurate sliding of leafs, which can easily be moved. The high level of protection against radiation and above-average mechanical durability of X-ray doors is provided by their high-quality components and accuracy of production.
is characterized by a fully customized approach, accounting for special requirements of the user: dimensions, opening method, color scheme and optional accessories. The construction of aluminum doors with radiological protection guarantees easy maintenance of hygiene, which is particularly important in healthcare facilities. Every X-ray door is manufactured by the book, with high precision of workmanship when it comes to each component and care for the finishing of even the finest of details. Depending on the radiation protection design requirements and detailed instructions of orderers and investors, aluminum X-ray doors are produced with solid or glazed leafs, as single- or double-leaf doors, and in hinged or sliding versions. No matter the variant, the X-ray door guarantees continuity of radiological protection and easy operation. Both swing and sliding doors can be equipped with automated opening and closing, which substantially enhances the convenience and hygiene of their use. Electrical drives of sliding doors are installed instead of ordinary guides, and they require a small amount of space on the lintel. Depending on the method of installation, these drives work with an arm pushing or pulling the door leaf. The automation of aluminum X-ray doors is started using proximity buttons, radar control or the entry button in the X-ray apparatus control room. X-ray door drives can also be coordinated with the operation of radiation-emitting equipment, making accidental opening impossible and preventing exposure to harmful ionizing radiation. The aluminum construction of X-ray doors not only ensures usefulness but also an aesthetically pleasing design. Depending on the user’s individual requirements, all X-ray door components are painted in all of the color schemes offered by the manufacturer, and this includes both the RAL palette of uniform colors, wood, metal or concrete imitation colors. Besides aesthetic effects, finishing by powder painting ensures exceptional resistance of the X-ray door’s structure to mechanical damage.
