Unlike our SYB Phone Pouch and SYB Laptop Pad, which are designed for specific uses, our EMF protection products for home and office are more general purpose. Products like the SYB Poster Frame Liner and the SYB Flex Shield can be used anywhere you need shielding.
But, because of their general nature, sometimes people find it hard to come up with scenarios where they can use and benefit from these products.
That ends here. This post will give you everything you need to know about our EMF Protection Home & Office product line, so your EMF shielding refers to the practice of reducing the electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure in a particular area by blocking or altering the electromagnetic waves with barriers made of conductive or... More journey can be better than ever.
So, let’s begin.
"Radiation" in the context of Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) refers to the process by which energy is emitted and transmitted through space or a material medium in the form of electromagnetic... More from electromagnetic fields (EMF) is all around us. Our strongest exposure to it comes from sources like WiFi routers, smart meters, and cell phones.
Want to Slash Your EMF Health Risks?
Good! Learn the one small change you should make right now.
And, as thousands of research studies conclude, radiation from these sources negatively affects our health.
So, what if you want to shield yourself and your loved ones from that radiation?
Well, to begin with, you can reduce your use of EMF sources by making simple changes like switching off your WiFi router at night and putting your phone on airplane mode when you’re not using it. But are these changes enough?
Well, yes and no.
Reducing your tech use helps, undoubtedly. And if you can also create a physical distance from your gadgets, that’s even better. But it’s not always possible.
Sometimes, circumstances force you to do things like keep your WiFi router on 24/7 and close to your working space.
And sometimes, your neighbor puts a WiFi router on the apartment wall you share, over which you have no control.
So, in cases like these, how would you feel about a discrete object that sits between you and the source of the radiation, blocking it from reaching you?
SYB EMF Protection for Home & Office
The products in our EMF Protection for Home & Office line create a protective wall or shield between the radiation source and the people around it.
But how exactly does this work? Wouldn’t you need to literally stand right next to the protection product to be shielded?
In theory, everywhere outside of it would be without protection, right?
The short answer is no – you don’t need to stand right next to the protective shield as if it were a physical piece of armor.
How Electromagnetic Waves Travel
EMF radiates from a source just like light does (in fact, light is a form of EMF).
Since light is something we can see and understand, using it as an analogy can give us a better grasp of how EMF works.
Light travels away from its source until it meets with an object. If the object is a material that doesn’t allow light to pass through, it blocks the light, creating a shadow.
But here’s the thing: the size of that shadow won’t be the exact same size and shape as the object that’s creating it. The closer the object is to the light source, the larger the shadow it will cast. This is simply because it will block a larger area of light.
EMF works in much the same way.
So, imagine a source of EMF radiation (say, a WiFi router) as a lamp. Now imagine a shielding product (let’s say the SYB Poster Frame Liner) as an object that blocks part of the light and thus casts a shadow.
How much light it blocks will depend on how close it is to the lamp.
Or in this case, how much of the EMF it blocks will depend on how close it is to the router.
Visualized another way, think of holding your hand up to a flashlight. The closer your hand is to the flashlight, the larger a shadow it will cast. And the further away your hand is from the flashlight, the smaller a shadow it will cast. (Remember that in our case, the shadow is the area in which you’re protected from the EMF.)
What This Means in Practice
In practice, this means that how you position your EMF shielding product will determine how much “shade” it throws – or, in other words, how great of an area becomes EMF-free.
One thing to consider is that if you put your EMF shielding product too close to the EMF source – e.g., directly next to or covering it – you risk interfering with its functionality. Much like putting a lightbulb behind a solid wall stops the light. If the point of the lightbulb is to provide light, then odds are you don’t want to block it altogether.
Instead, you probably just want to keep some areas lit and some in shadow.
That’s the same case with something like a WiFi router. If you have it switched on, it’s probably because you want to have WiFi available somewhere in the house or office.
Let’s look at some examples of situations you might encounter at home or in the office. And how to best set up your EMF shielding to counter them.
EMF Protection for Home or Office: How to Use It
Here are some ways you can set these types of protection up in your home or office in a way that maximizes their effectiveness.
Shielding Against Smart Meter Radiation
Smart meters are a health risk. Some scientists estimate that smart meters can cause 160 times more cumulative whole-body EMF exposure than a mobile phone.
Unfortunately, many people don’t even get a choice to install them – it’s forced by the utility companies.
So, in this case, putting your EMF protection close to the smart meter can help. It will deflect the EMF from your smart meter in the opposite direction, making it safer for you to have a smart meter in your home.
Protection From 5G Infrastructure
As you may know by now, to successfully run "5G" refers to the fifth generation of wireless communication technology, a step up from the previous 4G, 3G, and 2G networks. It's designed to provide faster internet speeds, more reliable... More, we need mini cell towers called small cells every 200 meters or so. This means that, whether you like it or not, you might end up with one right outside your door or window.
In this case, you can mount your EMF shield between you and the 5G device – as close to it as possible – and it will block most EMFs coming from the mini tower.
To Protect Certain Areas from WiFi
Let’s say you need WiFi connectivity in your living room or your home office but don’t want its EMF to reach areas like your bedroom or your baby’s nursery.
In this case, you can simply mount something like the SYB Poster Frame on the wall between the device and that area to specifically protect it.
To Shield Your Body from Portable Devices
Portable devices like laptops and computers expose your body to significant amounts of EMFs, even if you keep them on the table away from your body.
Products like the SYB Flex Shields are designed especially for this.
Simply apply the shield to your desk or other surface and sit the device on top. Everything underneath the shield (aka, your body!) will be protected from harmful EMF rays.
The SYB EMF Protection for Home & Office Line
Now that you understand a bit more about how to use EMF radiation shielding products that are designed for general purpose, here’s a bit more information about our EMF Protection for Home & Office Product Line.
The SYB Poster Frame Liner
The SYB Poster Frame Liner is a powerful EMF shielding product that protects you from EMF-radiating devices while remaining inconspicuous.
It’s designed using a super-thin copper and polyester sheet. And you can place it behind any framed photograph, poster, or piece of art in your home.
Because it sits between the poster and its frame – at a minuscule 0.08mm thick – it’s completely invisible.
The Poster Frame Liner is essentially a shield that repels all incident EMF rays.
Let’s say you have a powerful WiFi router sitting by the wall. On the other side of that wall is the headboard of your bed. Remember, EMF radiation has little trouble penetrating thin modern walls, so it exposes you all night – as long as you’re in bed.
Place your favorite poster behind the bed, and the SYB Poster Frame Liner will push at least 99.9% of the radiation back through the wall away from your body. The more wall space you cover the smaller the amount of radiation that can worm its way through.
Stylish and Effective Protection
The trouble with some EMF Shielding Products is that they stand out, ruining your décor.
With the SYB Poster Frame Liner, our goal is to provide you with whole-house EMF protection. And that, too, without sacrificing the aesthetics of your home.
It’s not only as powerful a shield as possible but also ultra-thin, flexible, and adjustable. You can easily cut it to fit any unorthodox size or shape. And now, with three standard sizes, you can fit it on the back of any painting with minimal alteration.
All in all, the SYB Poster Frame Liner is an affordable, attractive way of keeping your devices on and the radiation out, and we hope it will help transform your beautiful home into one that’s also safer.
SYB Flex Shields
Flex Shields are 6×6” squares of conductive, non-woven fabric that deflect incident EMF radiation. The back of each square is made of a special adhesive tape so you can apply it firmly to any flat surface—behind a baby monitor, on top of the desk, or anywhere you like. It’s EMF protection for home or office, anywhere you need EMF shielding.
Our Flex Shields come in a pack of 4, with each measuring 6×6”. You can also use scissors to trim them to the perfect size!
The first thing to do is decide where to place your shield.
Wipe down the target surface (a cleaner surface means better adhesion), then peel off your shield’s plastic layer. Align it correctly to the target area, and then press and hold it down for a few seconds.
If you’re looking to cover a larger area, you can combine multiple Flex Shields together. This will give you the flexibility to cover any surface regardless of size or shape.
Please note that the Flex Shield is not designed for direct attachment to an electronic device. Instead, we recommend applying your shield to solid, neutral surfaces like walls, desks, tables, or lap desks.
In this day and age, where EMF pollution is spreading, EMF protection holds the utmost importance.
And we hope this post has cleared up any questions you have about how these particular EMF-blocking products function and how you can use them in a practical way to limit your exposure to harmful radiation.
