Gypsum drywall panels are pressure laminated with permanent adhesive to unpierced sheet lead and arranged to provide effective lead shielding through all joints. These Gypsum board panels are secured to studs with drywall screws. Leaded drywall panels will be greater than or equal to the attenuation level specified by the physicist. Leaded drywall sizes are typically on 5/8” thick or ½” thick 4’ x 8’, 4’x 9’ or 4’x10’ sheetrock gypsum wallboard with 49” wide sheet lead rolled up to 7’ or 8’ high.
- Place leaded side of drywall against studs.
- Drill pilot holes for screws to prevent deformation of lead.
- A minimum lead overlap of one inch is required at all joints and corners.
- Extend lead overhang at least one inch into all frames or openings.
- Fasten lead lined drywall to studs with screws placed a maximum of eight inches on center.
- Install sheet lead over or behind all penetrations, cuts, or punctures to ensure continuity of radiation shielding.
Drywall can be taped, floated and finished as required. Protect installed materials from damage by other construction. Have shielding tested by approved personnel. Shielding must comply with all federal and state regulations.
