We love this Fabric! With the Highest Radio Frequency Blocking Power, it's elegant, creating a beautiful, sensuous sleeping space that's protected from invisible EMF.
This Swiss Shield Naturell fabric is designed for the needs of chemically sensitive and electromagnetic hypersensitive people. This lustrous canopy is actually the most compatible with an electromagnetic hypersensitive (EHS) and or multiple chemical sensitivity (MCS) person.
It's made of 100% natural cotton spun with 18% copper/silver combination.
But it's also great for anyone who wants to guarantee a No-EMF Sleep. It also protects from AC electrical EMF-which comes from electrical wires in your home. The field can travel from 6-8 feet from the wiring and the field is there--even if your electrical item(lamp, clock-whatever is plugged in) is off. For more on this type of EMF and others, please see the link to our guide below. Recent Research has found that caution needs to exercised with some shielding, here's what the study says about EMF canopies: The use of a shielding bed canopy during sleep would - theoretically- be safer than permanent shielding of the house on the condition that any electric/electronic device should be out of the canopy (and better turned off) during sleep.
Electro-sensitivity is on the increase but the knowledge of its symptoms and therefore its source is still considerably unreported. If you're experiencing symptoms such as headaches, depression, anxiety, heart palpitations, insomnia, memory loss to name just a few could be due to electromagnetic hypersensitivity.
Most people confirm the condition by seeing how they feel sans EMF,-which includes RF(radio frequency) or wireless energy, magnetic energy, AC electrical fields and electro-smog.When it comes to your bedroom- Electric Fields are what we worry about most, coming from the electrical wiring in your home. But it's always a nice idea to sleep in an EMF radiation free environment!
We've got a great Free Guide to the acronyms and living well with wireless. In the field of EMF protection. Swiss Shield Naturell is the finest, breathable, protective voile that has many attributes found by thousands worldwide to offer the protection they need both in their homes and out and about. As EMF Protection Study points out, Shielding can be risky-so here are some Shielding Canopy Tips: The best and most effective thing to do to make your bedroom safe is to FIRST shut off all EMF sources in your home. Try The EMF Safe Switch which turns off all the power to the room- AND make sure your wireless devices are out of your sleeping space too!

When the Swiss Shield® fabric is installed, its location, quantity and proper installation should be determined by a trained EMF specialist or EMF consultant. This fabric will reflect Radio Frequency Radiation and improper installation can result in increased exposure. Please review our list of EMF Home consultants for a professional who can perform and EMF assessment and help you install the canopy. In order to ensure optimum screening performance, the specialist or consultant should assess the living space for Radio Frequency “RF” Radiation and AC Electric Fields. Before and after measurements are important to determine the overall effectiveness of the shield. If a specialist is not available in your area, we recommend using an RF meter and an electrical meter. Visit our Meter Section to find both. Unless otherwise indicated, Swiss Shield® fabrics are surface-insulated to allow to for washing without shielding loss. Be cautious with other fabrics that have exposed metal as this material can rub off, become airborne and cause irritation or health effects. When washed, the shielding effectiveness of fabrics with exposed metal will significantly degrade. We do not recommend grounding the fabric because it is not externally conductive. Swiss Shield lists it as Non-conductive with PES-coating. In the event that a ground is applied to the Swiss Shield® fabric, please consult with your local licensed electrician and comply with local electrical codes. For added protection, a connection to a ground fault protected circuit (GFI) can be used. Please do not use of electronic or electrical devices near or under the fabric. You're exposure can and will increase! Swiss Shield® fabric is not fire retardant. Use with caution and at your own risk and do not use outdoors THIS CANOPY PURCHASE INCLUDES: Bed Canopy: Qty=1 Installation Instructions
