Lead Brick Applications
Lead bricks are typically used in nuclear and radiation therapy applications. However, lead bricks can also be used for radioactive isotope creation, ballast weights and counterbalances.
Lead Brick Installation
When installing lead bricks, the best method of installation is to have the lead bricks sandwiched. The lead bricks can be sandwiched between two rows of studs (with extra steel tube support if required), or between a concrete wall and a row of studs. Installation of the lead bricks using this sandwich method enables conduit and cabling to be run without concern for cutting through the lead brick wall. In all cases, the design of the lead brick wall should not allow for any penetrations in the wall as this causes issues logistically, financially and with safety.
