The Significance Of Deflection Versus Absorption
Since 1988, AegisGuard™ Radiation Shields have been the only radiation shielding products proven to deflect, or reflect, radiation frequencies away from the body without affecting a products performance, power consumption, or for wireless products, signal strength.
All models are non-absorbent, contain no conductive material, including graphite, MDF, nickel, silver, copper or other metal, grounding is not required, and their reflective properties eliminate absorption seepage concerns and safety issues.
Metal shielding materials are conductive and absorbing radiation at rates contingent upon their properties. Grounding is mandatory because in addition to seepage as the material becomes saturated (illustrated below), its composition weakens and deteriorates over time, and absorption is accelerated. This is one of two reasons why every wireless product manufacturer, and the World Health Organization, do not recommend using shielding products claiming to absorb radiation. The second is absorbent shielding materials cause electrical and electronic products to increase their power consumption and, for wireless products, their radiated power levels.
AegisGuard™shielding technologies are based upon the Law of Reflection (deflection). The RF source is the angle of incidence (originating source), the incidence is the source contact point with an AegisGuard™shielded surface, and the angle of reflection is the deflection angle off of a shielded surface. For smooth surfaces, such as glass, the source dimension and angle at the contact point are equal to its dimension and angle of deflection from the contact point. Defined as specular deflection, this technology is in AegisGuard™XP and Wired & Air Tube Headset products, and also in AegisGuard™LS, the first L (Life) Series product announced in 2005.
Forecasts predicting the explosive growth of wireless products, networks, their speed and operating frequencies served as justification for initiating a six year development effort in 2005. Its objective was to improve all AegisGuard™ L (Life) Series (LL, LP and LS) shielding compound surface technologies with a diffusing (scattering, breaking apart) deflection technology, while supporting higher frequency shielding applications without sacrificing shielding effectiveness. Completed in 2011, the shielding compound exterior surfaces were changed from smooth, to ridged, or jagged, diffusing deflected frequencies with the same shielding effectiveness and without degradation. This important feature eliminated all RF exposure risk concerns for individuals in the path of deflected frequencies when outdoors, in homes, offices, classrooms, offices, hospitals, etc.
This illustration of water being absorbed by a sponge clarifies why AegisGuard™Radiation Shields are specifically designed to deflect radiation frequencies instead of absorbing them. As you can see, the sponge expands as it becomes saturated and water escapes from the bottom. This saturation occurs with every type of absorbent material, including every conductive and/or absorbent RF shielding product claiming to absorb radiation. As they become saturated, seepage occurs and radiation penetrates the body.
AegisGuard™Life (L) Series products are tested for RF exposure times comparable to what people are actually exposed to in their daily lives. For example, washable clothing shielded with AegisGuard™ LL, homes shielded with AegisGuard™LP (and their windows with AegisGuard™ LS), and electrical, cell phones and other wireless products protected with AegisGuard™LS were tested for a continuous 24 hours, 1 year, and 8 hours, respectively, without any reduction in shielding effectiveness.
