RF/EMI Shielded Garments-Wearable Protection!Randy Mitchell
RF/EMI Shielded Garments-Wearable Protection! Our environment is full of Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR). Many of the sources of EMR “natural” and have always been present. The sun, atmospheric auroras, and the earth itself have electromagnetic fields. We are constantly exposed to these low-level electromagnetic fields. RF/EMI is a problem in electronic devices, decreasing performance. Electronic devices are shielded from RF/EMI using shielding materials. The shielding materials in electronic devices are often conductive metalized textiles. The metalized textiles block RF/EMI from passage to the device. RF/EMI Shielded garments contain silver, the most conductive metal, and a very effective shielding material. These garments block the passage of RF/EMI to the covered areas of the body. While we can’t completely avoid exposure, we can decrease it! Our garments have been tested to achieve an RF Shielding Effectiveness (SE) of 35-40dB from 900MHz to 5GHz, giving a 99.99% reduction of RF to the wearer!
RF/EMI Shielded Garments-Wearable Protection! Human generated EMR is currently being produced at record levels! The primary source is electronic devices. These devices include: microwave ovens, computers, wireless telephones, TVs, and WiFi networks. There are more and more RF/EMI emitting devices produced all the time. Work environments are also areas with considerable RF/EMI. Offices have the devices listed above plus copiers and more “screen exposure” to computer monitors. Workers who work with high tension lines, cellular towers, and radar installations have much more serious EMR exposure. Employees in these environments could benefit from a Shieldex® Multiprotective RF suit. These suits provide full body coverage in high exposure areas.
RF/EMI Shielded Garments-Wearable Protection. High Frequency radiation from devices has been suspected in causing symptoms in some humans. Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity (EHS) is rumored to cause: headaches, sleep disturbance, burning sensations and rashes, pain and aches in muscles among other symptoms. It is better to try to prevent the symptoms, rather than to treat them once they’ve developed! As the old adage goes “an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure”!
