Signal protect film minimizes the transmission of electronic signals. This prevents the interception of information in buildings—from wireless networks, for example—by those on the outside. The film is designed to protect organizations requiring the most stringent level of data protection from cyberattacks. It has government, military, and healthcare applications, among others.
This type of window film is so effective in protecting data that it meets the U.S. Intelligence community’s requirements for ICD 705 and the Department of Defense (DoD) Infrared and Radio Frequency Emanation Protection Standards. The DoD has identified the film as being one of the most inexpensive methods for mitigating eavesdropping and espionage.
In addition to enhancing security, signal protect film has another purpose as well. It keeps outside signals from interfering with wireless signals on the inside of buildings which improves the performance of interior systems and reduces the need for expensive equipment like signal amplifiers.
What Kind of Signals Does the Film Block?
Signal protect film blocks radio frequency (RF) and infrared (IR) signals. For example, it blocks both analog and pulsed digital signals for external sources such as microwave transmitters, cell phone towers, a neighbor’s cordless phone, smart meters, and Wi-Fi signals.
Some varieties of signal protect film provide up to 99.99% RF shielding performance, while maintaining the original look of your windows. If you choose the clear variety of the film, its transparency and low reflectivity doesn’t change the look of windows, so no one knows it’s there. Signal protect film is also available in a silver-tinted variety for those who prefer a more reflective look on their building’s exterior.
Additional Benefits of Signal Protect Film
In addition to improving data security and enhancing the performance of wireless networks in buildings, signal protect film enhances building comfort by blocking a significant portion of solar heat, thus helping to regulate building temperatures and lower energy costs in the summer.
Signal protect film also blocks the majority of UV rays. These rays cause glare, skin damage, and furniture fading in buildings on items such as carpets, wood flooring, and furniture. Yet, it still lets in plenty of natural light.
