EMFRF was instrumental in the completion of the first commercial Cuprotect® RF shielding project in the United States. Cuprotect® is a patented German copper wire mesh RF shielding system for buildings that is now available in the US.
The owner of a commercial building was concerned about the RF exposure to his tenants. A cell tower is located on top of the roof and the old roof was in need of replacement. After weighing the different shielding options presented, the building owner selected the Cuprotect® system based on feasibility, effectiveness and cost.
The Cuprotect® CEO, Wolfgang Kessel, and the US distributor, Gawain Bantle, traveled to San Diego to oversee the installation and to provide training for the staff of Premier Roofing. Sprint, the cellular service provider, cooperated in the effort and lifted the antenna array off the roof so that the shielding material could be installed underneath. Premier Roofing, in conjunction with Cuprotect and EMFR staff, successfully completed the installation.
