Wardray Premise Ltd is a UK manufacturer, trading for more than 100 years in medical and industrial sectors. They are radiation shielding experts, accredited to ISO9001:2015 and ISO13485:2016 standards, with an established reputation for quality and reliability.

Today, the company is delighted to announce their approved supplier status of QuantaShield™. This is a new and versatile radiation shielding product manufactured in the UK that offers an optimum shielding solution against X-rays, gamma rays, protons, neutrons and magnetic fringe fields.

QuantaShield™ standard interlocking blocks are offered with densities between 2 g/cc and 4 g/cc. However, ad hoc densities can be achieved to meet a client’s specification.

The higher density version of the QuantaShield™ block offers significant floor space saving compared with the standard density concrete blocks on the market.

The higher density version of the QuantaShield™ block offers significant floor space saving compared with the standard density blocks. QuantaShield™ standard interlocking blocks are designed to minimise radiation leakage, easy to install, sized for easy manual handling and stack without requiring any bonding agents thus reducing the need for wet trades on sites.

QuantaShield™ blocks contain concrete with naturally recycled constituents but their environmental credentials are improved as the blocks are relocatable, do not contain any toxic materials and are produced in the UK.

“Adding a new shielding material to our range of products and solutions is very exciting” said Sheila Wardley, Managing Director of Wardray Premise.

Working with the manufacturer of the blocks Wardray are able to develop and design bespoke shielding solutions, their services include completion of:

  • site surveys;
  • shielding calculations and design optimisation;
  • manufacture and installation of self-supporting structures and shielded doors,
  • post construction inspections and surveys.

In addition to the expert staff completing the installation; Wardray Premise also offer maintenance contracts to ensure the continued success and longevity of projects within the UK.

Nick Oakes, Commercial Manager at Wardray explains “It is great to be able to offer our clients an alternative and cheaper solution to our traditional heavy lead shielding.

However, as Wardray offer bespoke shielding solutions we can combine the QuantaShield™ blocks with our traditional portfolio of materials (lead, steel and neutron absorbents) and our existing product range (power operated doors) to optimise space, price and functionality.”

Customers are invited to discuss their project requirements and review the test room constructed from QuantaShield™ blocks at Wardray’s factory in Brighouse, West Yorkshire.
