The International Commission on Radiation Protection (ICRP) in 2011 recommended the lowering of the annual eye lens dose limit from 150 mSv/year to 20 mSv/year in order to reduce the risk of X-ray-induced lens opacity in medical staff.

SIZING GUIDE

See our sizing guide to help get you the most comfortable fit, and more importantly, the guaranteed area protection that you require.


This quick video will help you get the most accurate measurements for your apron. However, if you want to be extra-certain on the size and length required, get in touch with us and we'll arrange one of our area Sales Reps to measure you correctly.

CORE MATERIALS


lightweight lead


LIGHTWEIGHT LEAD

Lightweight lead is better suited to environments when the apron will be worn for shorter periods as whilst it is a much cheaper option it is also significantly heavier than our edge bilayer, lead free option. 

As the Lightweight lead is tested up to 150 Kv it makes this material more suitable for high KV procedures. 

If you are working in a high KV environment, contact us about our edge bilayer Lead option which offers a weight saving whilst maintaining the high Kv protection.

edge bilayer

ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT, EDGE BILAYER LEAD FREE

Our ultralight Edge Bilayer - Lead Free solution, By layering Antimony with Bismuth it provides a superior level of protection that conforms to the highest standards at the lowest weights.

  • This solution, is better suited to environments when the apron will be worn for longer periods as whilst it is a much more expensive option it is also significantly lighter than our lightweight lead option
  • In order to keep the weight low, our Bilayer material is tested to 110Kv, which helps us reduce the weight and is suitable for most interventional work when the aprons may be worn for longer periods.
  • If you are working in a high KV environment, contact us about our edge bilayer Low Lead option which offers a weight saving whilst maintaining the high Kv protection.
