We offer you an insight
regarding the current level of electro smog exposure in your home
Since there is no mathematical formula to exactly calculate exposure
levels in indoor spaces, only measurements on site can reveal the actual
exposure level. An expert, someone specifically trained for EMF testing,
can do this for you.
Do you have very poor or absolutely no cell phone reception in your home?
Great, the building materials surrounding you protect you
against wireless radiation-or you live in a white zone.
Depending on the types of materials used in your home, you may already
have a "natural" form of protection. Some construction materials,
however, provide absolutely no protection. Each building material has
its own set of characteristics, e.g. higher or lower noise or fire protection
or thermal insulation. Until recently, no materials had been
manufactured to specifically reduce RF radiation exposure levels.
Only recently testing has been performed that has identified the
existing "natural" shielding characteristics of building materials,
and special products have also been developed. There are no winners
or losers-each material has its own special features.
The shielding effectiveness of frequently used building materials
The following shielding characteristics for RF radiation were
discovered at the German Armed Forces University in Munich
(Neubiberg) during laboratory tests. In real life, the connections
between walls and ceilings as well as building openings or window
frames as well as the use of different building materials must also
be taken into consideration. This means that the listed values can only serve as a guide.
It is important to know the current exposure level because
attenuation by 95% can mean the following: for an exposure level
of 10 µW/m², this would translate into a remaining level of 0.5 µW/m²;
however, an initial exposure level of 1,000 µW/m² would only be reduced to 50 µW/m² after shielding.
The results of all tested materials have been published in the
study "Reduction and Shielding of RF and Microwaves." The second
edition (01/2003) replaces the bestseller from 2000 and is regarded
as the source of information concerning the attenuation and shielding
of RF radiation, especially for those caused by cell phone radiation.
Not only in German-speaking countries has it become a universal
reference book for architects and planners, the industry and government
agencies, environmental doctors and testing specialists, home builders and
tenants. More than 100 building materials and special materials are shown
in diagrams with their attenuation curves from 200 MHz to 10 GHz. Product
information and availability as well as frequency tables and general and
detailed information are indispensable components of this 60-page book.
