In Argentina, wearing a lead apron is a fundamental safety measure in medical and industrial settings that utilize X-rays. Most importantly, an X-ray apron safeguards healthcare professionals and patients during diagnostic imaging procedures such as radiography, CT scans, and fluoroscopy. Exposure to ionizing radiation carries an inherent risk of genetic and cellular damage that can lead to cancer and other insidious diseases. 

Argentina’s rigorous, thorough regulatory system for radiation safety necessitates high-quality X-ray protective gear. Barrier Technologies® proudly introduces our innovative approach to radiation protection solutions. We invite everyone working with X-rays to explore our meticulously designed, top-tier lead apron options.

Medical Aprons From Barrier Technologies

Radiologic professionals worldwide trust Barrier Technologies X-ray aprons for their unparalleled protection and durability. Our expert team continuously explores novel materials and components for the most effective defense against scatter radiation.

Here are three highlights of our premium medical apron products:

1. Core Material Options: We supply standard lead X-ray aprons with lead equivalence (LE) of 0.35 or 0.5 mm Pb. However, our highly-rated lead-free tungsten apron options are considerably lighter and non-toxic.

2. Comfort and Flexibility: Reduce fatigue and musculoskeletal issues with ergonomic, unisex designs to suit everybody. Fully adjustable inserts and straps ensure a proper fit and even weight distribution.

3. Customization and Personalization: Choose from various fabrics, colors, and patterns. Add an embroidered logo or design to reflect your unique style or promote your brand.

Barrier Technologies for Innovative Radiology Aprons

Barrier Technologies brings our Argentinian clients a carefully curated selection of radiological aprons. We’ve chosen them specifically for their advanced features, elevated level of protection, and rapid availability.

UltraFlex™ Antibacterial Stain Resistant Apron

Do you worry about grimy, unhygienic lead aprons that never come clean? Barrier Technologies’ proprietary UltraFlex fabric avoids the health hazards of porous nylon outer coverings and helps maintain the sterile field during interventional procedures.

  • The medical-grade urethane coating is impervious to liquids and stain-resistant.
  • Antimicrobial properties reduce the transmission of pathogens such as MRSA and other hospital-acquired infections (HAIs).
  • It complies with COVID-19 personal protection guidelines.
  • To clean between procedures, simply wipe down with any hospital-grade disinfectant.
  • A pliable four-way stretch offers unrestricted movement and flexibility.

 

MagnaGuard™ Magnetic Closures

Barrier Technologies has eliminated annoying Velcro fasteners that catch on everything and accumulate dirt, lint and germs. Our patented MagnaGuard magnetic closure system comprises permanent strip magnets embedded in the lining of the lead apron.

  • Just touch the magnets together for a secure, hassle-free fastening.
  • Donning and doffing can be accomplished with one hand.
  • The hidden magnets reduce the amount of stitching on the garment.
  • No more struggling to clean and sanitize scratchy Velcro!
