Laser protection with laser safety curtains
To ensure Class 4 and Class 3B laser beams do not escape from laser laboratory or medical facilities, including hospital theatres, certified laser blocking material should be installed. Ordinary curtains are rarely capable of stopping a laser beam and specially-designed certified laser blocking material must be used (Certified to IEC/EN 60825-4).
Also production facilities using Class 1 lasers, which are Class 4 under service conditions, may require ceiling-mounted curtains to allow other work to continue safely in the same room during service.
To provide the necessary protection level, Lasermet’s laser blocking curtains are ideal. They are designed as passive guards to enclose an area where Class 3B or Class 4 lasers are in use either to protect against accidental exposure to the laser beam or for long term blocking of laser radiation at lower power densities.
