There are a number of things to consider before you buy your apron. Most notably, you should think about the purpose your apron will serve. Will you be wearing the apron for extended period of time? Are you dealing with equipment emitting high levels of radiation? Will you be sitting or standing during procedures? The answers to these questions affect which type of apron you will need. Focus on the following apron characteristics when selecting your lead: the apron style (front or full protection), the level of protection (core material and thickness) and the apron's weight.

Choosing your level of Protection

Your choice of core material and thickness are major factors to consider since they are directly correlated to your apron's weight and protection. It's also important to note that certain countries, states or hospital groups have a minimum protection level requirement for their lead. Please take this into consideration when purchasing your apron. For more information on our Core Materials, please visit our Core Materials page.

Core Material Types

While all of our core materials perform optimally at key kV ranges (70-110kV), certain elements perform better at the lower/higher end of the kV spectrum. If you're looking for protection at the widest range of kV, lead is the industry "gold standard." The only problem, lead is HEAVY. Which is why we offer Prolite, Premier and Nano lead-free core materials with weight reductions of 16-33% lighter than lead. To put it in perspective, a large lead vest skirt would weigh about 18 pounds, while a large nano vest skirt would weigh about 12 pounds.

Core Material Thickness

Higher thicknesses mean more attenuation/protection but also more weight. While negligible, higher thickness can also mean less flexibility for your apron. We offer the following protection levels: 0.25mm, 0.35mm, 0.50mm LE. MOST customers select 0.35mm or 0.50mm LE for their apron to achieve a balance of weight and protection. Customers that prioritize having an ultra-lightweight apron usually opt for 0.25mm LE protection.

0.25mm LE core material thickness


Attenuates from 86-91% @ 90kV

0.35mm LE Core Material Thickness


Attenuates approx. 94% @ 90kV

0.50mm LE Core Material Thickness


Attenuates approx. 97% @ 90kV
