Only a certain amount of RF radiation usually enters through the floor.
This situation, however, is quickly changed when the occupants of the apartments
below use DECT cordless phones or Wi-Fi and make frequent and lengthy phone calls
on their cell phones. Occasionally there are also other RF radiation sources that can have an adverse effect.
In any such case, it makes sense to take precautions and install shielding in the floor.
In special circumstances, when e.g. the room is located on an
upper floor in a wood-frame house, or DECT cordless phones or other
wireless devices are used by those living below, floors should be
included in the shielding concept. There are various building
materials that offer a natural shielding effect against RF radiation
due to the type of material or their thickness. When planning a new
home, the specific shielding characteristics of the various building
materials should also be taken into account. It is indeed possible
to reduce the exposure level by choosing the correct building material
or combination of materials with low and high shielding effectiveness.
Even in the case of an extremely high external RF radiation source,
it is possible to significantly reduce the exposure on the inside by
placing two materials with a high shielding effectiveness in front of each other.
In addition, the level of RF shielding of floors can
be considerably improved by installing RF-shielding boards.
When building new or renovating, alternating electrical fields can be conducted
away by grounding the reinforcement fabric or an electrically
conductive flooring component (adhesive and floor covering).
In this manner, you can effectively protect specific rooms such as a bedroom or a child's bedroom.
This also applies to sensitive areas such as operating rooms or
conference rooms both in commercial as well as industrial settings.
