'Artful' mobile lead walls

'Artful' mobile lead walls

Tuesday 3 April 2018

As one of the largest suppliers of lead glass in the Netherlands, INTOS also produces mobile lead walls. Lead glass and walls protect against electromagnetic radiation (X-ray and gamma radiation) used in medical and technical researches. Mobile lead walls are used when there is no space or desire for a fixed wall and are used in hospitals, but also in research and testing centers.

X-ray art research

An exceptional request came to us: one of the largest museums in the Netherlands asked INTOS to supply two mobile lead walls. The museum conducts X-ray based research to study art objects. With this knowledge they can start a suitable restoration process.

The realized mobile lead walls look well designed. The frame and the bottom panel are in nice contrast with the stainless steel frame. The color is also striking; these lead walls are made of anthracite, in contrast to the white walls often made for hospitals. In addition, the wide window offers optimal visibility. In short: the result may be there! Fortunately, functionality can also be beautiful.
