Frequently Asked Questions

With more people protecting their homes, I’m being asked quite a few questions about shielding fabrics. Here are the answers to some of those questions. Feel free to send me a message if you still have questions!

How Does Fabric Shield Against EMF Radiation?

The EMF shield fabric is made of a thin and light metal mesh (often silver or copper) or sometimes other material, and can be lined with cotton. This fabric is able to reflect and absorb EMF radiation.

The holes in the mesh are smaller than the shortest wavelength so electric and magnetic waves cannot get through. It actually attenuates the radiation.

Attenuation means it loses its force or power as it goes through the material, scattering the protons and is measured in decibels (dB).

What is the Shielding Effectiveness?

The decibel number has a corresponding reduction of EMF radiation. If the fabric is 10dB it has a 90% reduction, 30dB equals 99.9% reduction. S0 99.9% of the EMFs will not get through the fabric into your home.

Since EMF fabric comes in different thickness and material, they all have different levels of attenuation. Make sure to check the dB for the fabric you are looking to purchase.

Here is a recent study from Drexel University, demonstrating how conductive fabric blocks electromagnetic waves.

How is EMF Fabric Used?

Faraday fabric is used by the Military, law enforcement, forensics investigators and fortunately it’s affordable so us common folk can use it too!

It has so many uses for privacy, shielding against EMPs and EMFs.

You can construct signal proof rooms, bed canopies, blankets, floor mats, or make pouches or covers for your router and other wireless devices.

Shielding fabric is used in anti-radiation clothing, hats, Faraday bags etc. Although for these items, unless you’re a skilled seamstress, I would recommend buying instead of using fabric to make them.

What do Blocking Fabrics Shield Against?

This material blocks against RF radiation, which includes;

    • Bluetooth
    • WiFi (2.4 and 5GHz)
    • Cellular signals (including 5G)
    • GPS
    • RFID
    • NFC
    • Radio Signals

This means it will block electronics within your home or office and signals outside your home (like from cell towers), smart technology and smart meters, and give you EMF safe zones.

My Experience with EMF Blocking Fabric

I would be useless with this material without my wife! I am so grateful she can sew and for everything else she does for our family.

She made curtains for the windows closest to our smart meter and a “princess” bed canopy in our daughter’s bedroom, which she adores. We also have purchased blocking curtains in our bedrooms.

She used the material to make covers for our WiFi router, and other electronics, and squares that are like mats under all of our beds. We’ve been talking about creating an entire EMF-free room, draping EMF blocking fabric by the yard all around the room.

All I did was test the RF shielding fabric with my Trifield EMF meter to ensure it had amazing shielding capabilities.

Electromagnetic Radiation Protection in our Bedrooms

We didn’t make or purchase blocking bedsheets because we already have grounding sheets and a soft protective blanket on our bed, otherwise we would have. 

Since you spend an average of 26 years sleeping, you want to make sure your bedroom is a safe zone.

How do I Choose the Best EMF Shielding Fabric?

When you pick your emf fabric, you’ll want to consider how much you need and make sure you buy enough. You also don’t want to waste any by getting way too much fabric (although there are plenty of uses for your leftover scraps and pieces).

Other things to consider, include;

    • Texture – some fabric isn’t as soft so not idea if it’s going to be used in hats or clothing. Thickness is also a factor.
    • Attenuation – You’ll want at least 20dB (which offers 99% reduction in waves).
    • Material Transparency – Do you want it to be see through for a canopy or thicker to only let in light?
    • Cost – it’s always something that should be considered.
    • Washing – Some material is hand-wash only, which will preserve it longer, while others are machine washable.

How do I Know if my Fabric is Working?

The easiest way to test your blocking fabric is to use an EMF meter before and after putting it up to compare the radiation levels. They’re easy to use and give clear differences.

Meters are great to have to find the biggest sources of RF radiation around you as well, to find the best use of your fabric or other protective tools.

Another way to check if your material is working is to test it with your devices. If you’ve made a canopy or a shielded room, what kind of signal do you get on your phone? Can it connect to Bluetooth outside of the canopy?

How Much Does it Cost?

The price varies depending on the attenuation, type of material, manufacturer, and length and width of your fabric.

What is EMF Fabric Made of?

Most blocking fabrics are made of a metal mesh that is thin and lightweight.

Fabrics in protective clothing and hats often uses silver thread in the mesh with cotton, which makes the fabric breathable, antibacterial, and comfortable.

Some options are highly conductive, made with metals like copper, or nickel, copper, silver or a combination of all three.

DIY RF Enclosures

Making an enclosure or EMF-free space is a great way to keep RF radiation out of a small space or contained within it. You can make small ones like bed canopies or tents or go big and turn an entire room into one.

Shielding paint may be a cheaper option for doing an entire room or combine it with blocking curtains if you have windows. But if you rent you likely can’t paint so fabric is a good choice for a removable enclosure room.

DIY Faraday Bags

This material can be used to create your own Faraday bags to enclose your phone, keyfob, laptop, router, smart meter, and more.

Conclusion

We can’t escape EMF radiation. We’re dependent on wireless technology and even if you put your wireless devices in airplane mode or shut them off entirely, you are still exposed to outside radiation.

How many WiFi signals are around your home? Nevermind cell phones, smart technology, and Bluetooth devices.

A great way to protect your home is to use EMF blocking fabric to create safe spaces and reduce exposure from outside.

Shielding fabric is really versatile, with many uses, from clothing, blankets, curtains, pouches, liners, canopies, bags, tents, to complete enclosures.

Hopefully you have someone handy like I do, to use this material to make custom protection around your home because it’s a great option to have.
