Modular mezzanines are a convenient and cost-effective method of quickly creating additional floor space within the interior of an existing large structure, such as a warehouse, retail store or industrial building. Popular designs include structural framing, stairs, and steel grate decking. The most common purpose of modular mezzanines is to provide additional storage space. Some specialized modular mezzanines provide enclosed rooms with complete utility services, including lighting and air conditioning, to create offices and finished interior spaces.

Lead-lined materials are installed in buildings to prevent occupants’ exposure to radiation. There are three main types of radiation (alpha, beta, and gamma/X-ray) that humans can be exposed to, either naturally or through the normal operation of radiation emitting equipment or processes. Gamma and X-ray radiation are very similar. They are a penetrating type of high energy, high frequency electromagnetic radiation produced by X-ray operations in the medical field, and during the decay of radio-active materials in industrial applications. Lead is the material of choice to offer shielding from gamma and X-ray radiation, since it is a dense element with a relatively high atomic number, which is important for the absorption of electromagnetic radiation. Lead is cheap, available, and malleable, with a history of proven effectiveness for electromagnetic radiation protection.
This topic includes information related to radiation protection. Radiation protection are components designed and fabricated to protect people from radio frequency, x-ray, nuclear, radiation, electromagnetic fields, and high energy magnetic pulse protection. Radiation protection includes lead sheet, lead bricks, lead-lined materials and modular shielding partitions.
