Lead Plates

Lead Plates are commonly used as a permanent installation to line walls, floors and ceilings, along with medical, industrial, nuclear and transportation applications. Lead Plates are preferred because:

Physical Properties:

  • The durability of lead provides a long life cycle, which means less replacement costs over time.

  • The thicker plates are more rigid than sheet lead.

  • The density of lead also lends itself to natural sound reduction and vibration control.

Our lead plate can meet QQL, ASTM and AMS Federal Specifications.  We offer customized thicknesses based on your needs ranging from 3/16” and up.
