Astragal for Door Pairs
A lead lined astragal is installed as a part of the shielding system in a pair of doors. The astragal is a device to hold shielding lead in the space between the meeting stiles of the pair of doors to prevent direct radiation from passing through the space. It also shields over flush bolt locations for center lead doors.
We provide a complete line of door hardware that can be used on our lead lined doors, including locks, hinges, pivots, door closers, protection plates, etc.
We stock Rixson L147xML19x26D pivots for 1 ¾” doors, Pemko CFM83SLFHD1 aluminum continuous hinges and Lead lined Yale 3501-Aluminum Closer s. We are also able to lead line locks from various manufacturers to match your project requirements.
Lead shielding represents a practical approach to the need for protection from X-Ray radiation. Its uniform density, high atomic number, level of stability, ease of fabrication, high degree of flexibility in application and its availability at reasonable cost are principal factors. Sheet lead can be used to shield floors, ceilings, cabinets, safes, outlet boxes, etc. Lead sheets are available in sizes from 1/32" to 1". They are built into various structural objects such as walls and doors to give necessary shielding protection. Sheet lead requires adequate physical support when applied to a vertical surface such as a wall or to a horizontal surface such as a ceiling. Lead sheet us available in rolls and may be shipped flat if required.
