A two piece apron, made with light-lead material or lead-equivalent material, is worn to protect the front and back of the body against ionising radiation during x-ray exposure. This apron consists of two parts which must be worn together, a wrap around skirt, and vest.

The two piece apron is recommended for use with a fluoroscopic x-ray system (C-arm) in an operating theatre, where lead aprons are often worn for longer periods of time. The lighter weight and all round protection of the skirt and vest are more suited for these situations.

In addition, a lead thyroid shield should also be worn for complete protection.

Technical specifications

  • Two piece lead apron consisting of a wrap around skirt and vest. (front and back protection)
  • Protection: equivalent to 0.25 mm of lead (NB When the skirt and vest are worn, the wrap around design allows a double layer of protection on the front of the body. Effectively, protection is therefore 0.25 mm Pb equivalent at the back, and 0.5mm Pb equivalent at the front.)


Small, medium, large and extra large sizes available

Instructions for use

Do not fold, put on a hanger after use in order to avoid tears or cracks (local purchase or manufacture).

Once a month, visually check for possible damage (tears/ cracks). Once a year, take a radiograph of the apron. If there are small black lines or marks on the film, it is likely that radiation is leaking through cracks in the composite materials. Small amounts of leakage are acceptable, but when damage becomes too extensive, the apron must be replaced.


  • See the MSF X-ray User maintenance SOPs for detailed instructions
  • Clean regularly with soapy water (neutral soap) with a damp cloth, rinse and dry away from sunlight.
  • Disinfect if needed with a 0.25 % detergent-disinfectant solution for surfaces (i.e. 20 ml = 1 sachet = 1 stroke of dosing pump for 8 l water). Do not rinse (contact time must be 15 minutes minimum and the product is not corrosive).
  • Do not machine wash, do not dry-clean, do not iron, do not sterilize by steam autoclave.


  • Temperature < 35ºC, Protect from sunlight
  • Do not fold, store on a hanger (can be rolled up)
