The concept of radiofrequency (RF) shielding is simple: simply put a barrier between the source of the radiation and the area you want to protect. You can cover over your shielding materials with almost any decorative medium that you like. Starting with the area with the highest field, place the meter in a location which you can find again after shielding is installed. Complicated shapes and multiple barriers in a vehicle may not permit the placement of shielding in all locations that need it. Keep adding shielding until either you are satisfied with the results, or you find that adding more shielding does not yield any further decrease in readings.
Now, understanding that magnetic shielding "works" because it is a better "conductor" of magnetic field lines than air or just about any other material, let's see what happens with 2 different shield designs. In conclusion, for net current, flat (or nearly flat) shielding is more effective for fields from wiring in the area adjacent to the shield.
There are probably other factors which determine how much EMF your body can tolerate, such as genetic predisposition, how much exposure you receive at work or school, your age, your exposure to harmful chemicals (pesticides, preservatives, etc.) which may be activated by the EMF, your overall health, and so on.
Should you fail to get assistance for the power company (likely), you may be tempted to consider shielding. Compared to magnetic field shielding, shielding a home from cell tower radiation is reasonably straightforward. There are several materials you can use to create the conductive enclosure, depending on your needs and your budget.
For doors, walls, floors and ceilings, CuPro-Cote or Y-shield conductive paints offer very good shielding and are very convenient.
Remember that the attenuation spec for a shielding material is how much radiation penetrates through the shield. In many ways, RF behaves much like visible light, and RF shielding materials behave much like two sided mirrors.
You can use the shield style that goes right onto the phone, or you can line a pocket or purse with a shielding fabric. You will have to use magnetic shielding alloys to shield these magnetic fields and you have a choice of several methods. Note:Unlike the bucking magnet method, these shielding methods do not alter the sound quality of the speaker. Because you will be placing the shielding material in close proximity to this strong magnetic field, you will have to take saturation into account. For the layers closest to the magnet, choose a high saturation material such as MagnetShield.


If you need maximum field reduction, or cannot open the speaker cabinet, or you simply want to take the easy route, you can simply place flat magnetic shielding alloy between the speaker and the TV. The magnetic fields at the side of the speaker magnet have different characteristics compared to at the back of the magnet, and different shielding materials are required. A high saturation material of significant dimensions such as 36"x15" MagnetShield Plate is required here. To shield the magnetic fields we recommend that you form a tray under the laptop with Magnetic Shielding Foil if you will have the laptop near you. If you are using a remote keyboard, you can achieve much higher reduction of magnetic field by making a 5-sided box from Magnetic Shielding Foil. Now it is easier to see why a magnetic shield in the shape of an enclosure (sphere, box, tube, etc.) offers much better shielding than a flat shape or partial enclosure.
Similarly, if the source of the field is outside of the enclosure, the magnetic field lines will travel through the material of the enclosure on their way back to the source, never finding it more efficient to permeate the air space inside the enclosure.
An important consideration when shielding magnets is that the magnets will be attracted to the shielding material. 3] Shielding involves applying Magnetic Shielding Foil (0.010 thickness) or Giron over the source of the offending field. Gaps under doors, joints between shield sections, and even pinholes from sewing shielding material can permit these high frequency signals to penetrate. The subfloor can be painted, or a shielding fabric layer can be applied before the final floor surface is installed. It can have very high shielding performance, and in general should be grounded for peak efficiency. Some materials are more appropriate for walls and ceilings, while other are better for windows.
But because shielding materials are conductive, be very careful to avoid allowing them to come into contact with electric wires to avoid a shock hazard.
This material has the ability to "absorb" the initial blast of the field without saturating and becoming useless, but it will only give a limited attenuation. The material is thick enough to provide good shielding, but still can be cut with a scissors and shaped by hand. Before removing the adhesive backing, cut and shape the material just like the first layer, but on top of the first layer. Unlike the way a lead shield stops X-rays, magnetic shielding materials create an area of lower magnetic field in their vicinity by attracting the magnetic field lines to themselves. For these reasons, enclosing either the source of the field, or the thing(s) that you wish to protect from the field, offers the most effective use of the shielding material, and is usually the most cost efficient as well!


If the floor in already installed, you can lay shielding fabric, and cover it by a large area rug or sheet linoleum.
It is important that the meter position be repeated in exactly the same position (before and after shielding), as changing the meter position will change the readings.
Note: There will be a position somewhere between the back of the speaker magnet and the front of the TV which will yield "near perfect" shielding. Covering the keyboard area of the laptop with a shielding fabric such as High Performance Silver Mesh will reduce electric fields from these areas while still allowing you to see the keyboard. But if a material with a higher permeability is nearby, the magnetic field lines, efficient creatures that they are, will travel the path of least resistance (through the higher permeability material), leaving less magnetic field in the surrounding air. You can paint over the shielding paint with any color of latex paint to achieve any appearance you like.
Every vehicle will have multiple sources of magnetic field, some of which may be in areas that are difficult to access for shielding. Cut the material which extends backward at several locations so you can bend these "tabs" inward to form the "bottom of the cup" shape. Move either towards the speaker or towards the TV from this point and you will loose shielding effectiveness. You could also use a shielding fabric such as Nickel Copper RipStop or AL60 behind the wall.
In such a situation, if you use a reflecting material, it will reflect on BOTH sides, and you could end up increasing the amount of RF in your living space.
Use screws, pop rivets, tape, glue or any other mechanism you can think of to keep the shielding material in place. To achieve a reasonable degree of shielding, you would have to create a metal vault around your house, using thick metal plates with no windows. Naturally, some situations may require shielding of both the back and the sides of the speaker cabinet. If your largest piece of shielding is not wide enough, you can place pieces next to each other, with 1-2 inches of overlap where they meet. Placing magnetic shielding material around your body is possible, but again not very practical.

    Kit alterations I will carry significantly less the initial time it was out can serve as an effective.
