Additional X-Ray Lead Glass Products

Ray-Bar Easy Clean-Ray Glass

  • Over 40 standard sizes up to 48" x 96"
  • Reduces maintenance
  • Increases longevity of product
  • Many protective shielding levels available
  • Available with lead lined frames for walls

Untreated x-ray glass surfaces are inherently 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. This makes it more challenging to maintain. Discoloration, haze or a foggy appearance may ensue. This reduces the medical technician’s view of the patient and medical imaging procedures. Easy Clean X-Ray Glass is a proprietary treatment developed for our x-ray glass products as a permanent invisible coating which will never peel off or scale. This is not a surface applied "film"; once treated it will provide a very smooth and durable surface that will repel water and oil-based liquids or stains. It resists dirt deposits, oxidation, UV exposure, corrosion and wear from ongoing glass cleaning processes. Cleaning and maintenance is made up to 90% easier using only clean water or a non-abrasive liquid glass cleaner and a soft clean micro-fiber cloth which greatly extends the life of x-ray glass in a medical environment.

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 invisible permanent treatment coating is only a few molecules thick and completely transparent, so it does not change the quality or visual appearance of the clear x-ray glass surface and allows the exact same level of light transmission.
This invisible coating treatment cannot be removed except by an abrasive process such as sand blasting or by using abrasive cleaners. However there still would not be a visible difference where the coating was worn away and that area would be simply harder to clean than the remaining coated and treated areas. Although this special coating increases 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 readily available on all levels of Ray-Bar's radiation shielding x-ray glass products. Please contact Ray-Bar for more information on this exclusive option.

HIPAA Patient Privacy Compliance (With Ray-Bar X-Ray Glass Products)

Ray-Bar can assist in the design and specification of specialized x-ray privacy glass. These products help the healthcare facility comply with Federal HIPAA patient privacy regulations designed to protect the privacy of the patient during the imaging process or other sensitive medical procedures.

Options of x-ray privacy glass include: frosted glass, patterned glass, internal blind units, and "mirrored" glass. These unique products provide radiation shielding while providing privacy. Another option is an electronic instantly switchable view from opaque to clear ("open" view or "closed" privacy) with internal mini or micro blinds.

See below for options in the privacy glass line.


Additional X-Ray Lead Glass Products

Ray-Bar X-Ray Privacy Glass

Ray-Bar X-Ray Privacy Glass is an electronic switchable privacy glass that provides radiation shielding with the ability to instantly change from clear to privacy "frosting" either manually or automatically activated. The advantage of providing both privacy and x-ray protection is vital to patient privacy in medical imaging procedures.

When the electronic low voltage current is off, the glass is a soft opaque "frost". When the current is on, the glass is instantly clear for an unhindered view of the procedure and patient during diagnostic imaging or treatment. Contact us for additional information and size limitations.

This special x-ray glass provides a reflective privacy aspect on the lighter side, also known as "two way glass”, "one-way mirror" or "two-way mirrored". The privacy mirroring effect is not truly "one sided," as it will "mirror" on the greater light source side from either side of the glass. This is an excellent option for x-ray windows common to the exterior of a building as during the daytime it will provide a mirror face privacy finish on the exterior. This glass may also be utilized in a medical imaging control room window as long as the control room side is dimmed a minimum of 20% in relation to the x-ray imaging side.

Ray-Bar "Mirrored" X-Ray Glass is available in grey or bronze tint, and is also available as X-Ray Safety Glass which meets ANSI Z.97.1 and CPSC 16 CFR 1201 Cat 2 requirements for impact resistance.
