A Leader in Radiation Shielding Materials


Lead Lined Doors

At Pitts Little Corporation, our premium Radiation Shielding lead lined wood doors are made-to-order according to your specifications. We take great pride in our quality and quick lead time. The door size, veneer type, and lead thickness are per your project requirements. We also fabricate lead lined hollow metal door frames. Pitts Little will provide options for your entire door mounting hardware, door operation hardware as well as any leaded glass and lead lined glass frames.


Pitts Little Lead Lined Doors are constructed with two solid core wood slabs, one on each side of a solid sheet of center core lead. Mechanical fasteners are installed on 8” on center. (Please click Submittal icon for illustration) All rails and stiles are hardwood. Typically, our custom made lead lined doors are available in birch and red oak, but we can apply any available veneer/skins to your door such as plastic laminate with edge strips.

Pitts Little lead lined doors are typically 1- ¾” thick with lead thickness ranging from 1/32” to 3/8” with the door thickness customarily increasing with lead over 1/8” thick. The lead thickness required for proper shielding must be determined by a licensed physicist. These doors are generally used in medical practices such as CT scan rooms, PET scan rooms and X-Ray rooms.


Pitts Little Radiation Shielding Lead Lined Door Frames are custom made to fit your lead lined door for seamless radiation shielding protection. Our Knock-Down (KD) and welded shielded drywall frames are made with 16 gauge cold-rolled steel engineered to have clean lines, rigid corners and fine miters on all joints. These frames typically have a 2” face, are double rabbeted, lined with lead per the customer’s specification and are primed ready for painting, but we can fabricate any design that meets your needs on a special order. Our frames can be used in drywall construction with steel studs, wood studs or laminate boards. Frame sizes match door sizes in any combination of single or pairs with a shielded leaf and a shielded astragal.

We have a variety of hinge options designed to shoulder the workload of the weight of a lead lined door.
