Laser Protection with Laser Safety Curtains

Ordinary curtains are rarely capable of stopping a laser beam and specially designed certified laser blocking material must be used to ensure that laser beams do not escape from the laser controlled area.

Laser blocking curtains are intended to protect those outside the area from laser radiation. Those inside the laser-controlled area must wear suitable personal protective equipment, such as protective eyewear.

To provide the necessary protection level, Lasermet’s laser blocking curtains are ideal. They are made from the company’s specially developed laser blocking material and are supplied ready-made as ceiling or wall-mounted curtains. The material is black on both sides and will operate as a blackout screen as well as a laser-blocking screen.
