RAY-BAR ENGINEERING CORPORATION is a major provider of X-Ray/Radiation Protective Lead Glass radiation shielding products worldwide for over sixty-five (65) years. Specialty RAY-BAR X-Ray/Radiation Protective Lead Glass is utilized when a clear view and radiation shielding is of absolute priority in diagnostic, therapy, isotopic or nuclear radiation sources - used for medical treatment, imaging, testing, inspection, experimentation or energy production.
Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass compared to Regular Plate Glass for Radiation Shielding
Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass is specifically formulated to efficiently attenuate and protectively shield against X-Ray Gamma Radiation by utilizing a unique combination of a heavy density blend and also a proprietary high content composition of heavy oxides and minerals for maximum radiation resistant shielding performance with the least amount of glass thickness mass while still providing excellent optical clear view clarity and a non-browning optimal level of light transmission in providing code compliant radiation life and safety protection for the medical technician while also allowing an excellent clear view of the patient during critical medical diagnostic imaging procedures.
When properly utilizing Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass per current National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurement structural medical shielding guidelines compared to other acrylic based glazing options or thick plate glass types the advantage is obvious in typical medical diagnostic imaging control window applications as just 5/16" thick standard Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass provides better than 2mm+ lead radiation attenuation protective shielding equivalency performance than up to 4" of dark green heavy plate glass or up to 2" of dark honey color Lead Acrylic, both of which would filter visible light down to very low transmissions providing a very poor view compared to Ray-Bar's X-Ray Glass clear bright view. From all aspects with Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass the choice is always clear.

Ray-Bar X-Ray Heavy Glass Window
Regular X-Ray Glass VS Ray-Bar Easy Clean X-Ray Glass
Ray-Bar "Easy Clean" X-Ray Glass
All untreated X-Ray Glass surfaces worldwide are inherently molecularly soft and porous when compared to regular plate glass and as a result may potentially absorb mineral deposits,stains,chemical cleaners,soaps,grime and dirt and over time making it more difficult to maintain and clean and may eventually discolor,haze or develop a foggy appearance from harsh medical or hospital environments and continuous maintenance cleaning thus reducing the medical technicians clear view of the patient and medical diagnostic imaging procedures. Ray-Bar Easy Clean X-Ray Glass is a special proprietary transparent clear protective coating treatment developed exclusively by Ray-Bar as a very beneficial option for all of our X-Ray Glass products as a permanent and extremely durable,penetrating and chemically binding invisible coating that will never peal off or scale and is not a mere surface applied "film", and once treated will provide a very slick smooth yet durable surface that will easily repel both water and oil based liquid or stains, and is more resistant against dirt deposits, oxidation, UV exposure, corrosion and chemicals or mechanical wear from typical on-going long term maintenance and glass cleaning processes. Cleaning and maintenance is made dramatically up to 90% easier using only clean water or a non-abrasive liquid glass cleaner and a soft clean micro-fiber cloth and greatly extends the real service life of X-Ray Glass in a medical environment.
Additionally Ray-Bar Easy Clean X-Ray Glass provides such superior protection that it also assists in preventing the build-up of mold and harmful germs and bacteria,thus promoting a more sterile environment and contributing to the overall medical facilities infection control program. This special invisible permanent treatment coating is only a few molecules thick and completely transparent, thus it does not change the optical quality or visual appearance of the clear X-Ray Glass surface and allows the exact same level of light transmission.
This invisible coating treatment can not be removed except by an abrasive process such as sand blasting or by using rough, abrasive cleaners and by cleaning with dirty cloths,however there still would not be a visible difference where the coating was worn away and that area would be simply harder to clean the remaining coated and treated areas the same as regular X-Ray Glass. Although this special coating does increase the service life and quality of X-Ray Glass it does not make the glass "scratch-proof" or "abuse-proof". Ray-Bar "Easy Clean" X-Ray Glass coating is recommended as a uniquely valuable option that is always readily available on all levels of Ray-Bar's radiation shielding x-ray glass products as "Good in Stock" for immediate delivery worldwide. Please contact Ray-Bar directly for more information on this exclusive option.

Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass Setting Blocks (Glazing Shims)
Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass Setting Blocks are for use in shimming or centering X-Ray Glass into control window frames and provides both a radiation shielding aspect and a softer bottom sill support base for the X-Ray Glass to rest on when properly installed and evenly spaced for balanced pressure. Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass Setting Block Shims help assist in properly and safely installing and centering x-ray glass into a metal frame and keeping the edges of the x-ray glass from actual contact with the steel frame while allowing a perimeter gap of between 1/16" and 1/8" all the way around assuming the glass is originally ordered with proper undercuts in relation to the actual inside frame dimensions, and providing a perimeter cushion from uneven stress points due to impact transfer or pinching by frames that are slightly twisted, bowed or out of square thus reducing the potential of glass breakage due to these stress points.Setting block shims should be installed flat at both ends/corners of the bottom window frame sill and one center setting block shim if the frame is 24" or wider, or as a typical application for 36" or wider glass intermediate setting shims should be evenly spaced at a maximum distance of 12" apart (I.E. a 48' wide piece of glass would require 4 equally spaced bottom setting block shims at the window sill) and the glass gently placed onto the shims and carefully centered in the frame width and secured with removable stops with Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass Glazing Tape applied between the stops and both sides of the X-Ray Glass. Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass Setting Blocks are available "non-adhesive" in standard 1/16" or 1/8" thicknesses x 3/8" wide x 6" long, and also available "adhesive backed" upon request. This specialized product is highly recommended for all X-Ray Glass installations.
X-Ray Glass Shielded Spacing Blocks
Ray-Bar Lead Lined Glass Stops
Ray-Bar Lead Lined Window Glass Stops are utilized for providing additional shielding and a tighter radiation seal while reducing potential radiation leakage around the perimeter of an X-Ray Glass installed into a properly lead lined hollow metal window frame. This is particularly useful if the X-Ray Glass is undesized in relation to the window frame inside dimensions or in isotopic or higher energy x-ray or gamma radiation shielding applications. These specialized stops are internally shielded to your specified required lead thickness shielding value and are available primered and "ready to paint" as standard sized 5/8" x 5/8" x your required length(s) plus punched and dimpled to accept the included metal screw fasteners. *It is recommended that Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass Glazing Tape is also utilzed with this product.
