CANOPY MESH FABRICMake Your Own Canopy
This mesh makes a nice Faraday Canopy or use it for other shielding projects. Very transparent. Interlock weft knitted for high performance, flexibility, and durability. Tin coated 4 mil copper wire, with an average hole size of less than 1 millimeter provides a whopping 40 dB (99%) or better reduction of RF signals from 1 MHz to 2.5 GHz and beyond. Excellent low frequency electric field shielding also. Surface conductivity is 0.1 Ohm per sq. One meter wide. Cuts easily with scissors, sew with ordinary thread. Can be soldered.
Daylite is a highly transparent, open mesh fabric with excellent air and light penetration. Very light weight and perfect for canopies, window curtains, and head coverings. Using polyester for strength, with 7.5% copper, 0.5% silver filament in the yarn. Washable, white mesh, 8.2 feet wide.
Strength of Steel, Softness of Fabric
This is an interesting mesh material. Very fine (0.08 mm) rustproof 316L Stainless steel wire is knitted with 40% polyester yarn to create a stretchy fabric that is easy to touch and wash, but wears tough. Highly conductive in transverse direction (2.2 Ohm per sq) and ample 1000 Ohm per sq conductivity longitudinally. Great for static control. Make computer covers, overgarments etc. 152 gr/m². 39 inch wide. Gray.
Thickness: 0.08 mm
Can also be used to make great looking medieval chain mail costumes by professional manufacturers and hobbyists alike. Easy to cut and sew, with minimal unraveling at the edges. Washable too. Not for combat applications, but a great costume material for museums, Renaissance fairs, theatrical productions, Halloween and school plays.
"60dB in a Mesh You Can See Through"
For maximum shielding performance in a mesh fabric. Surface resistivity is <0.5 Ohm/sq. And look at this: shielding effectiveness is >50dB from 30 MHz to 3 GHz!
Can be used over a wide range of temperatures (-30° to 90°C) to shield electronic components, make draperies, tents, garments, mobile phone shields, and more. Used in medical applications also. Good tear strength and attractive Silver color. Very soft and comfortable to touch. 0.0045 inch thick, weighs only 40 grams/m². 58 inch wide.
Extremely Fine Shielding Mesh
Need light to penetrate your RF shielding? This Nickel and Copper anti-radiation coated polyester mesh offers fairly good transparency and excellent corrosion resistance. Better than 50dB of attenuation makes this the perfect choice for indoor window screens and shielding which requires air circulation. Flexible and light weight, cuts easily for custom sizing. Can be used indoors or out. Tested to >50dB over 10MHz-3GHz. By weight: Cu 23.4%, Ni 10.9%. 54 inch wide.
Pure 100% surgical stainless Steel (AISI316L), 0.004 inch diameter, knitted into a shielding fabric that’s as strong as steel! Tight knit pattern yields good shielding. 26 dB at 800 MHz, 15 dB at 1900 MHz. Permits good air flow and light transmission too. Resists corrosion, and it’s fully washable. Edges are hard to fray, even when cut. Trims easily with scissors and can be sewn. Use it for grounding, shielding, and conductive surfaces. Nice for indoor/outdoor shielded window screens! Easy to ground. 190 gr/m², 40 inch wide.
Mesh So Fine You Can Barely See It!
VeilShield is a high performance mesh style shielding fabric designed to be highly transparent. Combining high performance (40 dB or better), ultra light weight, and flexibility. 70% light transmission. 0.1 Ohm/sq resistivity. 58 inch wide.
Woven 132/inch mesh polyester fibers coated with Zinc-blackened Nickel over Copper for better corrosion resistance. Very easy to handle, but not suitable for prolonged skin contact if you have a Nickel allergy.

"Get Samples of All Our Fabrics"
Can't decide which fabric is right for your application? Want to see and feel the fabrics before you decide? In this booklet you get swatches of each fabric, along with specifications and application suggestions. Swatches are approximately 2 inches. Ni/Cu/Co tape, Threads, Hook & Loop, and Copper Wire Mesh not included in standard sampler, so if you need these, be sure to specify. If you need larger pieces for your testing, you can order as little as 1 linear foot of any material (see above).
Booklet includes a coupon worth $25 towards any fabric from our line. Good for 1 year.
