Economic EMP Shielding How-To
Our goal is to help everyone be ready for EMP. If you can't afford our products, try aluminum foil. Just put your items into plastic bags or cardboard, then wrap in foil. The catch is that you cannot have gaps in the foil so the interior is completely sealed.You do not need static bags from Amazon - those perform worse than foil for EMP, and they cost more. The catch is that aluminum foil is likely a 1-time use solution that you can't see inside. And you can't use your device in the foil like you can with our product.
Compare: Often-Seen "EMP" Standards
Competitors cite ESD (electrostatic discharge - not EMP) - we believe, to confuse you. They also use weak velco-foldovers or Ziploc seals, NOT our proprietary 1" full-contact magnetic seals. They also don't vent heat - you can overheat devices with competitors.

The Cell Phone Test
People often write "X product passed / did not pass the cell phone test." The test "works" if you know where to conduct it. ANY blockers "work" if you are far (>0.5 miles) from a cell tower. Competitors may not work close to a tower - but ours does. Our cell phone blocker should cut all signal. But our EMP shield will not - it stops EMP damage but allow signals in/out.
The AM/FM Radio Test
Others use an AM/FM radio to test. Our shielding attenuates FM but not AM. This is fine for small devices. In the AM band, EMP needs power lines to build up on. If your devices are shielded and not connected to the outside, they will be fine.
Why Does Ventilation Matter?
Cost. The highest-end EMP shields require air conditioning and power. To get there airtight metal rooms are needed. To have devices and people inside metal rooms, A/C is needed. To have A/C, large power generation is needed. We only shield the device, and just enough to stop EMP damage (not total signal elimination). So we can vent the heat directly. We don't need A/C or power generation - saving you 99%+ vs. the shielded rooms that start at $10,000-$100,000. (And if a single hair gets stuck in the door, the effectiveness of those rooms can drop to our level).
Our product is the most cost-effective trade off - you lose Mil-Std-188-125 level military shielding to gain portability and low cost while retaining shielding at a Mil-Std-461 RS-105 level. And when an EMP happens, you don't want to be spending precious fuel on A/C for a metal room.
