Lead Aprons

At Phillips Safety, we offer an extensive range of X-Ray lead aprons designed for optimal radiation protection. Our carefully selected collection of lead aprons safeguards patients by covering the chest, head, neck, shoulders, and upper body, providing comprehensive protection in various environments.

Lead aprons are essential medical protective clothing, shielding vital organs from the harmful effects of radiation. Our aprons feature three types of protective inner materials: standard lead rubber, lightweight lead blend, and lead-free options. All variants offer protection levels of .35 or .50mm Pb. The durable outer materials—Nylon, Polytron, Ripstop, or PVC EasyClean—come in a variety of colors and patterns, ensuring both functionality and aesthetic appeal. These aprons are used by doctors and medical physicists in all X-ray scenarios, regardless of radiation levels, and are highly recommended by industry experts, including members of the American Association of Physicists.

In addition to standard lead aprons, we provide lightweight lead blend and lead-free aprons. These alternatives are ideal for patient care technicians and medical professionals in diverse settings. While standard lead aprons contain 100% lead rubber and are the heaviest, the lighter lead blend and non-lead options, although more costly, offer the same protection levels. They significantly reduce fatigue and upper back stress, making them particularly suitable for interventional radiology or operating room procedures.

The importance of proper radiation protection is universally acknowledged by doctors and medical physicists. Our lead aprons address concerns about radiation’s potential effects on reproductive organs, including infertility. By providing complete automatic exposure control, our aprons mitigate these risks effectively.

Phillips Safety’s radiation protection aprons are available in a range of unique colors and patterns, allowing customers to select options that best fit their office environments and enhance patient comfort. Customizing features such as pockets, embroidery, and sewn-in thyroid collars are also available. We offer various styles of thyroid collars that can be added to any of our X-ray protection aprons, providing crucial protection against thyroid cancer.

INFORMATION

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • What is the minimum thickness of lead for lead aprons?

    The minimum thickness of lead for lead aprons is 0.35mm Pb. This thickness provides effective protection against radiation in various medical settings.

  • How much do lead aprons weigh?

    The weight of lead aprons varies depending on the type of lead protection and materials used. Standard lead aprons, which contain 100% lead rubber, are the heaviest. Lightweight lead blend and lead-free aprons are significantly lighter while offering the same level of protection.

  • How to clean lead aprons?

    To clean lead aprons, use a mild soap or detergent and warm water. Gently scrub the apron with a soft cloth or sponge, avoiding harsh chemicals or abrasive materials that can damage the surface. Rinse thoroughly and hang the apron to air dry. Ensure it is completely dry before storing.

  • How do lead aprons stop radiation?

    Lead aprons stop radiation by using lead, a dense material that effectively absorbs and scatters X-ray photons. This prevents the radiation from penetrating the apron and reaching the wearer’s body, thereby protecting vital organs and tissues from harmful exposure.

  • How to store lead aprons?

    Lead aprons should be stored properly to maintain their protective integrity. Hang them on designated apron racks or hangers to avoid creasing or cracking. Ensure they are stored in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures. Regularly inspect aprons for signs of wear or damage, and replace them if necessary to ensure continued protection.
