Wire Mesh for Mobile Phone Signal Blocking
Wire Mesh is widely used to protect key equipment from Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) and/or Electromagnetic Interference (EMI).
A wire mesh 'Faraday' cage can also be used to screen mobile phone signals from entering a building. For bars, restaurants and buildings hosting live performances, mobile signal blocking can provide a more personal experience, without interruption from technology.
A wire mesh 'cage' installed unobtrusively and cost-effectively within the structure of a building will absorb and redistribute electromagnetic signals from phones and other wireless devices, preventing them from entering the interior.
One client reported that Locker copper mesh was 100% successful in blocking mobile phone mast transmissions between 200mhz-10ghz, depending on signal strength.
Where the use of electrical jamming equipment is currently illegal, a wire mesh Faraday cage is not.
One of the benefits of wire mesh is that it can be moulded to fit around any shape, curve or protrusion within a structure. No matter what size and shape a building is, it is still possible to achieve a wire mesh cage effect. Locker offers a wide range of suitable wire mesh metals and specifications for this purpose, depending on specific requirements.
