Headgear/Silver-Elastic/HF+LF Shielding

An excellent attenuation of 50 dB (99,999%) shielding effectiveness

The modern alternative to a headscarf! This headgear (a fabric sleeve) can be worn in several ways: as a cap or as protection of nose, mouth and neck or for a complete protection of the head by using 2 pieces. SILVER-ELASTIC is very flexible and perfectly adapting to the shape of the head. Due to the high content of silver, Silver-Elastic is very durable and has an excellent attenuation of 50 dB.

Because of the electrically conductive surface on both sides, low-frequency fields will connect less and can be conducted away more easily. Many electrosensitive people give priority to fabrics that are groundable!

Technical Specification

Diameter: 24 cm, length 40 cm
Attenuation: 50 dB at 1 GHz
Colour: Silver
Raw materials: 80 % spandex, 20 % silver
Surface conductivity: 0.5 ohm (square resistance)
Delivery Time: Usually between 2 - 3 business days

Grounding: Due to the surface conductivity this fabric can be grounded to shield low frequency (LF) electric fields. For professional grounding we recommend our Grounding plate Magnet - GM with Grounding cable GC-200 Plugged into Grounding plate Tube-GT/Attach to Heating Pipes {Options available}

Shielding attenuation
The above mentioned screening attenuation values always apply to 1Ghz. The screening attenuation is regularly tested in our own EMC laboratory, we have measurement setups due to the following standards: ASTM D4935-10, IEEE Std 299-2006, IEEEE Std 1128-1998, ASTM A698/A698M-07.

Gentle cycle at 30°C. Do not iron. Drying at very low temperatures. No bleaching. No chemical dry-cleaning.

Cleaning in a washing machine at 30°C with our special washing detergent TEXCARE. No handwashing!
For allergic persons: Every new fabric smells! Always wash before its first usage!

Discoloration of silver
Something that other suppliers keep quiet about: This product consists of silver, that will discolour over the time! Stained places have no negative effects on the screening attenuation and they are no quality defect!

Reviewed by Andrew Maxwell from Bristol

I have just received this scarf so the review is based on initial impressions only.

Testing it with the andriod 'Wifi Analyser' app proves this is excellent material. It REMOVES any trace of wifi (a 60db drop!), whereas the Daylight netting only registers a 10-15db drop.

So this headscarf will become the home head wear of choice and the netting will be added to my bedding. Thanks so much Y-Shield and Electrosmog Shielding.co.uk.
