Laser Blocking Curtains

cubicle-curtain-on-trackMost Class 4 and many Class 3B lasers are dangerous and can present an eye hazard over very long distances, and ordinary curtains are incapable of stopping such a laser beam – specially-designed laser blocking material and products are needed.

Designed for use in industry, medical facilities, hospitals and operating rooms, our laser blocking curtains are made from Lasermet’s specially-developed laser-blocking material. Medical or industrial laser blocking curtains can be supplied ready-made as ceiling or wall-mounted curtains. The laser blocking material provides ‘World Class’ laser blocking capability while being extremely light weight and flexible, ideal for everything from industrial laser curtains to operating room laser curtains.

The material is white on one side and black on the other side and will operate as a blackout screen as well as a laser-blocking screen. Both sides will block laser radiation but if the white side is used as the laser-blocking side, a higher specification of blocking will be achieved — making it suitable for higher power lasers.

Tested in accordance with NFP92-503 (Electrical Burner Test), the material is rated as M2. When irradiated with greater than 0.5 MW/m2 it will emit a non-hazardous smoke and may glow, thus indicating that a stray beam is present. Protection times given by the material at various power densities are shown in the specifications below.

Irradiated Area PEL (T2) 100s
Black or White Side 4mm2 2.2 MW/m2
2000mm2 0.35 MW/m2

The top of the curtain has brass eyelets every 150 mm and the curtain is supplied with a stainless steel hook for connecting to a curtain track. The weight of the material is 1.3 kg/sq m  (4.8oz/sq ft)
