    GIB X-BLOCK®: Protection against X-ray radiation


    GIB X-BLOCK® system is a unique lead-free plasterboard and jointing compound designed for X-ray radiation protection in medical settings. The lead-free plasterboard contains barium sulphate, which forms an effective barrier against X-ray radiation and can be used for walls, operator barriers and as a ceiling lining. They are also effective at absorbing and diffusing sound.

    The jointing compound used on the GIB X-Block plasterboard is designed to give lead equivalent joints on walls and ceilings and it provides a uniform X-ray radiation barrier.

    The GIB X-Block system also offers high sound insulation performance.

    Features and benefits:

    • Lead-free X-ray radiation protection
    • As easy to install and joint as standard plasterboard
    • Eliminates the need for complex installation procedures usually associated with installing lead based lining solutions
    • Enhances other important performance requirements such as noise control and fire ratings
