Manufactured and Serviced in Canandaigua, NY  USA


Select-a-Shield™ RF/ EMI curtains are ideal for numerous confined area RFID shielding applications, pre-compliance testing, secure communications and temporary shielding situations.

SELECT has developed specialized RF/EMI shielding partitions or curtains that can be used to create your own unique shielding environment. Design projects include shielding unprotected windows, protecting personnel & equipment from radiated electromagnetic exposure, safeguarding radar assemblies with EM reflective covers, and improving RFID scan accuracy through use of shielding strip curtains mounted outside scanner tunnels.

Shielding effectiveness of SELECT RFI/EMI curtain systems can be increased with proper grounding techniques and by minimizing or eliminating gaps that allow RF leakage.
