The fact is, as modern technology continues to advance, we are bombarded with more and more radio frequency (RF) radiation and electric and magnetic fields (EMFs) than ever before. Some people are more sensitive than others to their effects, experiencing a wide scope of symptoms. The Global Healing Center reports that we, as a society, are “practically bathing in EMF pollution…WiFi, personal electronics, smart meters, and especially cell phones have sent EMF exposure through the roof.” For individuals that suffer from RF and EMF symptoms or would like to prevent potential risks of disease from exposure, there are numerous solutions available for blocking these electromagnetic fields. From faraday clothes to EMF protective paints, homeowners can invest in different options for keeping their homes safe. However, RF and EMF can still be transmitted through windows, requiring a specific solution. RF blocking and EMF protective window film provide the optimal way to stop this exposure from entering your windows.
More and more studies on EMF and RF exposure show possible health risks. Power lines, 5G, cellphones, microwaves, WIFI routers, computers, Bluetooth devices, smart meters, and other appliances in residential and commercial spaces send out these invisible energy waves known as EMF. The RF blocking component of this product has been celebrated by commercial properties for its ability to stop potential hacking of wireless networks- for homeowners, this adds another layer of technological security while blocking potentially harmful radiation. The RF and EMF protection window film also delivers UV protection for comprehensive defense.
RF blocking is a side benefit to several other home window tints, whose main purpose is adding energy efficiency, blocking UV rays, and cutting glare. These films are true multi-taskers, blocking heat gain in the summer and heat loss in the winter. They are affordable and will pay for themselves in as few as three years on the energy bill savings alone. If you or someone in your family is sensitive to EMF or RF radiation and is experiencing one of the many potential symptoms, one of these window films might be the perfect solution. For families looking for preventative safety, we highly recommend looking into RF blocking and EMF protection window film.
EMF Protection Window Film
The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified non-ionizing EMFs in the radiofrequency range as possible carcinogens. This refers to the EMFs that are produced by cellphones, tablets, and other smart devices. More and more studies are pointing to the possible carcinogenic effects of these EMFs as well as a potential risk for neurological cognitive disorders.
Studies support these possible symptoms of EMF exposure:
- Sleep disturbances
- Memory loss
- Loss of concentration
- Changes in memory
- Weight loss and loss of appetite
- Skin tingling and burning sensation
EMF Protection Window Film vs. Faraday Curtains
Faraday curtains are lined with silver or another reflective metal capable of blocking EMF and RF radiation. While these curtains are effective, they also block out natural sunlight. EMF protection window film maintains natural sunlight and doesn’t require manual operation. This window film product also offers RF blocking properties for high-security benefits and UV protection for better energy efficiency and fade protection. For certain rooms that do require WIFI or 5G signal from time to time, faraday curtains will be a better option as these can be opened to allow transmission.
Tips for Reducing Your EMF Exposure
In addition to finding the proper protection for your home, there are other ways you can help lower your EMF exposure:
- EMF meter: Investing in your own handheld meter can help you determine EMF levels and your risk of exposure.
- EMF protective gear: Clothing, hats, faraday bags, and other protective gear are available on the market. These can be worn anywhere outside of your home or in your office to help prevent exposure.
- Cell phone practices: Try using your phone on speaker or with wired headphones to reduce exposure. It’s best not to carry your phone in your pocket or on your body- try keeping it in your bag when out. Never sleep with your phone next to you. Try putting it on airplane mode when possible and using a faraday bag to block radiation.
- Bluetooth and WIFI: Opt for wired headphones and a wired internet connection whenever possible. Wired connections mitigate radiation produced by Bluetooth devices and WIFI routers.
EMF Protection and RF Blocking Window Film Options
We offer Vista energy-saving window films for the purpose of blocking radio frequencies from a home. Certain Vista residential films have been tested and proven effective at blocking RF radiation. We also recommend 3M Sun Control, another energy efficiency window film, which has also been proven to block RF waves. Our team is happy to discuss different investment options based on your needs.
