Lead Bricks


Canada Metal’s lead blocks and cast lead & extruded bricks offer maximum protection against x-ray radiation. Lead bricks can be manufactured to specification and include chevron-style, interlocking straight and corner bricks. Lead blocks are available in inventory in flat and interlocking “V” formats in a variety of weights and sizes, and can also be manufactured to specification.

Lead bricks are used to block the effects of radiation. Canada Metal’s bricks are designed to fit together easily, enabling contractors and building managers to create a custom lead wall or surface. These interlocking bricks feature a flat surface with a “V” profile that can be easily combined for a secure, solid, leak-proof barrier.

Interlocking lead bricks are specified by architects and engineers in the construction, healthcare and nuclear industries. Many hospitals, medical and research laboratories, and facilities with sources of radiation such as X-ray equipment, or radioactive isotopes, will use these bricks for effective shielding.

Consult the experienced professionals at Canada Metal to discuss specific project needs.


Lead bricks can be used for temporary or permanent radiation shielding in applications where sheet lead is impractical.
