Aluminum X-ray windows are one of the fundamental types of fixed anti-radiation screens protecting against doses of ionizing radiation that are harmful to health. X-ray partitions made from aluminum profiles, filled with a layer of lead, are distinguished by a solid construction and ensure many years of failure-free operation. The aluminum profiles used to make X-ray windows are excellent components. Their light weight, which compensates for the weight of lead, is a very important characteristic of aluminum, and their high mechanical parameters and resistance to corrosion confirm that they are an ideal material for fabrication of X-ray window frames. Besides its physical properties, aluminum also provides an appealing appearance of X-ray partitions, and window frame profiles are painted according to the RAL palette or in imitation wood colors. Aluminum windows for radiological applications are most commonly used in healthcare facilities as viewing windows or glazings separating rooms exposed to X-ray radiation
Aluminum X-ray doors are among the fundamental components of radiological protection, effectively limiting the hazard associated with the adverse and uncontrolled action of ionizing radiation on the environment. Window-door systems of aluminum profiles, supplemented with additional structural components, make it possible to manufacture aluminum doors with an X-ray screen in different variants and over a broad range of dimensions. Aluminum X-ray doors may be produced as swing or sliding doors in single- or double-leaf versions. All aluminum X-ray doors are designed and manufactured according to custom dimensions, accounting for the thickness of radiation protection fillings and additional accessories. Door production technology requires much care and accuracy, yielding a high quality product with the appropriate level of radiological protection. The leafs of aluminum X-ray doors are typically solid, however they can be equipped with glazings filled with lead glass with a thickness equivalent to that of the radiation protection applied in the door leaf body. Aluminum X-ray doors can be equipped with electrical drives and opening blockades synchronized with the diagnostic apparatus emitting potentially harmful ionizing radiation.
