Laser Protection with Laser Safety Curtains

Certified laser blocking material should be installed to ensure that Class 3B laser beams do not escape from laser facilities. Ordinary curtains are rarely capable of stopping a laser beam, requiring the use of specially designed certified laser blocking material.

Laser curtains are passive guards that are used to enclose an area where lasers are used, either to protect against accidental laser beam exposure or to provide long-term blocking of laser radiation at lower power densities.

Lasermet’s Laser-Blocking Curtains are ready-made ceiling or wall-mounted curtains made from the company’s specially developed laser blocking material.

The Wolf material, formerly known as Blackcat, serves as a blackout screen as well as a laser-blocking screen and is available in grey. It is ideal for use in laboratories and research facilities, as well as manufacturing environments.

Production facilities that use Class 1 lasers, which are classified as Class 3B under service conditions, may require ceiling-mounted curtains to allow other work to be done safely in the same room while the laser is being serviced.

For smooth operation, heavy duty curtain tracks can be supplied. High-quality cubicle curtain track is available for applications where the curtain must be suspended below the fixing points.

MOTORISED LASER PROTECTION CURTAINS

Lasermet’s laser blocking curtains can be motor powered up to a maximum run of 10m (32.8 ft) or 60kg (132.28 lb).
