The Shielded Waste Containers are specially designed for the safe disposal of medical waste. They are available with two standard designs: models 7-121224-.25 and RDW-CAN. Model 7-121224-.25 has 0.25” lead shielding and is ideal for the rapid and safe disposal of gloves and other small items. The unique lid with a hinged-door is designed to shield the employee from the contents of the container even when the lid is open. Plus, its two lifting handles make it easy to remove the top to empty the decayed contents. Model RDW-CAN has a rugged steel construction. It is shielded with 1/8″ of lead, making it ideal for low energy radioactive waste. Its leverage foot petal with hinged lid makes it ideal for “hands free” operation. In addition, it is available in a durable white glossy finish or stainless steel exterior. Both these designs can come with any thickness of lead shielding and size. Moreover, as with all of our products, Phillips Safety can design and manufacture custom shielded waste containers to meet your exact specifications.
