Lead Apron Racks Safe And Organized X Ray Protection Storage

By Stephen Lamb

Lead apron racks are useful tools for the safe storage of lead aprons. Lead aprons are valuable medical devices that must be properly cared for to prevent damage or loss. Aprons that are stuffed in cabinets or other insufficient storage devices are at risk for becoming damaged and the life and usability of the apron may be reduced. Furthermore, it can be quite harmful for an x-ray apron that is not functioning properly to have continued use. Due to the dangerous effects x-ray radiation exposure can cause, malfunctioning aprons may allow harmful electromagnetic waves to leak through and cause serious problems to the patient or technician. Through the use of suitable x-ray apron storage, lead aprons can remain organized, easily accessible, and in proper working order.

Since x-ray aprons are a costly investment for any medical facility to make, it is important that aprons are protected to ensure extended use. By keeping well-maintained lead x-ray apron storage, a hospital’s or other x-ray imaging facility’s tools can be more efficiently used. If lead aprons are kept organized in lead apron carts or other similar x-ray apron storage devices, medical staff will never have to waste time searching for their aprons and can present the aprons to physicians immediately when needed. The main focus of x-ray imaging should be obtaining quality, detailed medical imaging; therefore, lead x-ray apron storage should be used to eliminate the unnecessary distractions of a disorganized apron supply.

A vast array of lead apron carts and storage devices are available to suit individual x-ray facility needs. Wall mounted, peg-style lead apron hangers have aluminum construction and range in size from racks with pegs holding as few as 2 aprons or as many as 18 aprons. Combination wall-mounted lead apron hangers can also function as lead glove storage racks.


The most space-efficient lead x-ray apron storage option, swing arm lead apron racks, is wall mounted and can rotate out nearly 180 degrees. The lead apron hangers that are attached to swing arm lead apron racks have a chromium-plated design and can hold up to 110 pounds of weight. With this lead x-ray apron storage device, aprons can easily be stored behind doors or in other convenient locations and are very easily accessible by way of the movable hangers.

Another useful lead x-ray apron storage tool is mobile x-ray apron racks, which allow for easy portability from room-to-room. Many mobile x-ray apron racks are also swing arm lead apron racks and have an all-steel composition. Anti-tip bases and easy rolling casters with locking wheels help keep mobile x-ray apron racks stable and maneuverable. Mobile x-ray apron racks typically can hold 10 aprons and some also serve as lead glove storage racks. On garment-style mobile x-ray apron racks, up to 300 pounds of radiation protection apparel can be stored. Some garment lead apron carts require heavy-duty lead apron hangers to be used in conjunction with them while other garment lead apron carts have built-in swing arms for apron hanging.

Lead x-ray apron storage devices help to maintain a neat and organized medical imaging environment in which medical personnel and patients can easily function. To prolong the life of x-ray protective aprons and to ensure that patients and physicians remain protected with properly functioning, undamaged lead aprons, all x-ray imaging facilities should be well equipped with x-ray apron storage devices.
