RF EMI Shielding Curtains

Multipurpose EMI and RF Shielding

Select-a-Shield™ RF / EMI shielding curtains are ideal for numerous confined area RFID Shielding applications, pre-compliance testing, secure communications* and temporary shielding situations.

Select Fabricators RF / EMI Shielding Curtain

SELECT has developed specialized RF / EMI shielding partitions or curtains that can be used to create your own unique shielding environment. Design projects include shielding unprotected windows, isolating personnel & equipment from electromagnetic exposure, safeguarding radar assemblies with EM reflective covers, and improving RFID scan accuracy through the use of shielding strip curtains mounted outside scanner tunnels.

Select-a-Shield RF / EMI curtains are made in the USA of US materials including our proprietary RoHS compliant, lightweight Silver/Copper/Nickel fabric. This durable fabric has an average shielding effectiveness of -85 dB in the range of 30 MHz to 1 GHz and an average -80 dB in the range of 1 GHz to 11 GHz. State-of-the-art metallic plating processes provide protection against galvanic corrosion and a finish coating eliminates stress cracking concerns.

DBA-SheildSelect Options for Enhanced Effectiveness

Shielding effectiveness of SELECT RF / EMI curtain systems can be increased with proper grounding techniques and by minimizing or eliminating gaps that allow RF leakage.

Curtains can be customized to your unique requirements.  Choose from:

  • Single or Double layer conductive fabric
  • ESD (Electrostatic Dissipative) fabric layer(s)
  • RF shielding ceiling covers
  • Grounding straps
  • Copper foil tape
  • Clean to IEST-STD-CC1246E
  • RF shielded vents
  • Curtain attachment options:
    • Magnets
    • Grommets
    • Hook & Loop
