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 curtains or partitions that can be used to create your own unique shielding environment. Design projects include shielding windows from RF, 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 on an assembly line.

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 & RF shielding window covers
  • Grounding straps
  • Copper foil tape
  • Clean to IEST-STD-CC1246E
  • RF shielded vents
  • Curtain attachment options:
    • Magnets
    • Grommets
    • Hook & Loop
