Everything you need to know about how we make your lead

Every single lead sheet, ingot or lead-lined board Midland Lead makes is subjected to rigorous quality checks throughout the entire process – from manufacture to despatch. That’s why we can say, with absolute confidence, that each and every one of our lead ingots, lead sheets or lead-lined boards is fit-for-purpose and made to an impeccable standard.

The right lead thickness for your requirements

The code of lead you require will vary on the intended application. The construction industry typically requires code 4 – with a smaller requirement for code 5 lead sheet. Requirements in the UK healthcare sector vary, from code 3 for dental/veterinary use, to codes 4/6 for general hospital use.


Midland Lead’s professional accreditations

You expect certain reassurances when you buy lead. In particular, you need to know that the lead you buy has been made to industry-leading standards, in an environmentally responsible way.

Meeting the highest standards of lead manufacture

From our British Standards and British Board of Agrément (BBA) certification to our internal quality control measures, Midland Lead gives you those assurances. And we give you more…
