Universal Shielding Corp.
(USC) was established in 1972 and during this time span has provided in excess of
modular RF shielded enclosures to Government, Military, Commercial and
facilities. USC is proud to be the only company in the industry to have maintained its original ownership since its inception.
Copper Screen Enclosures
are designed to eliminate ambient EMI/RFI inside and contain RF signals from interfering with systems outside.
USC designs, manufactures, installs, and tests its RF shielded enclosures nationally and internationally.
USC's reliability, scope and quality of their services have earned them a well deserved reputation.
Both USC-26 and USC-44 series panels are interconnected with a framing system to form the enclosure.
Enclosures are completely erected from the interior and thus can be placed in proximity to parent room walls.
Can be dismantled,
transported, re-erected, and still maintain their
Parts are all numbered to
enable customer to install chamber rapidly.

Universal RF Shielded Doors
Universal enclosures provide
extraordinary shielding attenuation. This is attributed to the shielded
enclosure door design
Single Knife Edge
Double Knife Edge
Single & Double
USC enclosure doors are equipped with a 3-point latching
mechanism for tight, RFI-EMI-secure closing. Bearing surfaces, rollers and
door cams are of case-hardened tool steel, designed to provide years of
trouble-free operation with no loss of attenuation capability due to
friction and wear. Our doors are extremely easy to operate; they require
less than 20 pounds of force on the handle.
To achieve the attenuation levels required, our doors are
equipped with a minimum of two rows of beryllium copper "fingers" around the
periphery of the door. In the closed position, the fingers contact the door
frame to assure an RFI/EMI leak-proof seal. The following is a type of
door/frame construction offered by USC:

Building code maps
using numbered zones, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, are practically obsolete. 1969 was the
last year such a map was put out by this staff.
The 1997 Uniform
Building Code (UBC) (published in California) is the only building code that
still uses such zones.
the past two decades, building codes have replaced maps having numbered
zones with maps showing contours of design ground motion. These maps in turn
have been derived from probabilistic ground motion maps. Probabilistic
ground motion maps have been included in the seismic provisions of the most
recent U.S. model building codes, such as the new "International Building
code," and in national standards such as "Minimum Design Loads for Buildings
and Other Structures," prepared by the American Society of Structural
values are expressed in logarithmic, not linear, terms. Therefore, 80 dB
of shielding effectiveness is not double the 40 dB level, but 100 times
greater. Another way to express effectiveness is attenuation ratio,
which compares the attenuation signal strength outside and inside the
shield as shown below.
