Substations, switchboards and cable trays produce electromagnetic fields which may cause interference with electrical equipment or raise concern about the potential for adverse health effects.

EMI Shielding provide a comprehensive EMF shielding service, which includes:

  • Off-the-plan budget pricing for tenderers required to provide EMI mitigation
  • Assistance with design solutions to reduce requirement for electromagnetic shielding
  • On-site EMF testing & reporting using digital gaussmeter  
  • Custom designed EMI shielding for maximum efficiency  
  • A variety of magnetic shielding materials are used to acheive maximum performance  
  • Coordination with other trades to ensure smooth workflow and the best possible finish  
  • Magnetic shielding materials consist of thin layers of proven sheetmetals (> 7mm)  
  • Shielding materials may be painted and/or overlayed with carpet, plasterboard etc..   
  • Prompt, friendly service and short lead times  
  • Australia wide installations utilising local staff with appropriate licensing and inductions  
  • Provision of EMF test report and as-built drawings on completion  

It is important for builders, tenants, electrical consultants and contractors to consider EMF shielding prior to commencing plastering and floor coverings during new constructions or refurbishments as retrofit of magnetic shielding materials can reduce the ability to shield electromagnetic fields efficiently as well as adding substantially to the cost.

Although the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency does not currently provide a regulatory standard for protection from EMF, the commonly accepted practice is to limit exposure to EMF's in workspaces to not more than 10mG (milligauss) and in residential areas to not more than 4mG.

EMI Shielding has more than 12 years experience in this field and can design shielding to suit your requirements.

Common methods of reducing the effects of EMF's found in offices and apartments are:

  • consideration of potential for electromagnetic fields during building and electrical design
  • relocating electrical cables to reduce electromagnetic interference within residential and office space
  • increasing the distance between the source of EMF and the area to be protected
  • installing electro-magnetic shielding materials on walls, floors or ceilings around the source of EMF.
