Radiation Shielding Curtains

Non-Lead Radiation Protection for X-Ray Scanning in Airports, Material Handling Facilities, & More!

Nearly 1,000,000 Airport and Parcel workers are potentially exposed to lead each year. Are you willing to take that risk?

Despite the declining popularity of lead-based materials, RoHS compliant products are still not universal in the Material Handling workplace. Incidents of exposure can occur during the production, use, maintenance, and disposal of materials and products containing lead. When it comes to radiation shielding curtains used in X-Ray Scanners and Explosive Detection Systems (EDS), the traditional solution contains lead, frays easily, is difficult to maintain, and contributes to inefficient jams. 

The threat of lead poisoning in the workplace still looms over a broad range of industry professionals. Exposure to lead dust can result in a myriad of ailments that range from short-term to life threatening. Affected individuals may develop anything as subtle as chronic fatigue or flu-like symptoms to something more destructive, like severe brain damage caused by lead encephalopathy.

As a solution to a repeated industry issue, Globe Composite has patented a low-friction, durable, RoHS Compliant Radiation Shielding Curtain designed to significantly increase the throughput of baggage and parcels:

  • 55% Lower Friction Coefficient
  • 3x Better Abrasion Resistance
  • 2.5x Better Tensile Strength
  • 18x Better Elongation
  • 50% Better Tear Strength
  • 4-5x Longer Life 

Why You Should Switch to RoHS Compliant Radiation Shielding Curtains:

Everything boils down to the simple, convenient design. These sturdy curtains come in the form of a single molded, homogeneous sheet with all slats tied together. This is not only a plus in regards to efficiency and easy mounting, but it also makes this product superior in terms of safety, customization, and economical budgeting.

Because these products are built to last, non-lead radiation shielding curtains lower the cost of overall ownership. When you avoid fraying and wear with sturdier material, less general maintenance and fewer replacement curtains are required. If the curtain does need to be repaired or replaced,  our simple mounting configurations makes repairing or replacing the curtains a much less time and cost consuming task for technicians.

These unique curtains have a lower coefficient of friction that stays consistent and reduces drag, even in the advent of eventual wear and tear. The material won’t fray or warp, keeping assembly lines and conveyor belts moving smoothly for as long as possible. The coefficient of friction in these curtains is lower than that of vinyl and lead products, making for much less resistance of items entering and exiting the machinery.

Lead free equipment in the workplace is simply safer than equipment that isn’t. Not only is it safer for anyone and everyone who comes into contact with the shielding, but it also eliminates any chance of lead exposure for packages, luggage, and people when in use. Even when it comes to disposal, lead-free curtains edge out the existing curtains by offering a safer and simpler alternative.

RoHS Compliant Radiation Shielding Curtains are suited to all different types of geometry and can be adjusted to suit a variety of needs. Being this product is a single-molded homogeneous material, rather than a series of layers, buyers can change the surface texture as well as adjust their curtains to the exact the size needed for unique equipment dimensions.


These factors serve all parties involved: OEMs, regulatory agencies, airports, parcel handling companies, technicians, and end-users alike. Safer equipment makes for safer employees and operating conditions, which in turn results in stronger, better businesses. Who do they all have to thank for this positive experience? The OEMs who provide their sturdy, RoHS Compliant Radiation Shielding Curtains.
