The Best Lead Apron Storage and Lead Apron Hangers

If your hospital, clinic, dental offices, or other medical office requires protective apparel such as lead shielding aprons for radiation protection, you know just how important choosing the right x-ray lead apron is for you and your team. With the potential different styles and sizes of lead aprons in your facility, storing lead aprons and other garments safely and securely is a high priority. You want to help extend the life of your protective garments by quickly and conveniently storing them on quality racks between use. Among the varying options of protective supplies and accessories available, how do you select the best lead apron storage to keep your x-ray aprons organized and to best fit your imaging offices?


First, consider whether or not your x-ray lead aprons will need to be stored in a permanent location or if you require a storage rack to be movable to other areas of radiation exposure. If you'd prefer garments to have a set placement, a wall-mounted rack would be a great solution. However, if you need a storage option that allows for easy movement around your facility, a mobile rack would be your best choice. 


Once you know the type of rack, you can choose among the number of aprons you will need to be stored per rack. If you're interested in a rack with pegs, you can select two, six, or even eight pegs per rack. With a rack with arms, most are available with five or ten swinging arms. A Z-Base rack will hold aprons based on weight but require lead apron hangers for each garment.
