A 3-bedroom apartment for sale in San Francisco has recently made the news because it has the distinction of having been extensively remodelled to block out all WiFi radiation from the surrounding neighbourhood. These and other modifications have notched the sale price up to a cool $8.6 million, which is more than triple the original price paid seven years ago.
To achieve this level of shielding, the owners painted all the external walls, floors, and ceilings with semi-conducting electromagnetic field (EMF) blocking paint and linked them all together with wire strips to create a Faraday cage effect. The windows were also coated in a transparent EMF-blocking polymer.
Somewhat puzzling is that there is no mention of shielding any of the electrical wiring and equipment inside the apartment, which can be just as much of a health problem as WiFi radiation from outside. Hopefully they did their research properly and have taken care of that too.
While most people wouldn’t want to go this far to shield their home, many people are affected to some degree by neighbourhood WiFi, and painting your bedroom walls, in particular, can bring about an extraordinary improvement in the quality of your sleep.
Shielding paint is now easily available to anyone who wants it. The best I have found is made by a German company called Yshield. Their website has sections for Germany & Austria, Switzerland, Europe, and the rest of the world, and there is also a Yshield website in Australia. The paint can be used to shield radiation from cellphone towers, radar, TV and radio broadcasting antennas, smart meters, mobile phones, cordless (DECT) phones, wireless networks (WLAN), and EMFs from power supply lines.
I can personally vouch for Yshield’s effectiveness because I’ve used it in my own home. We are far from any cell phone masts and do not use any WiFi devices at home, but our neighbours keep their router turned on 24/7, which affects the area where my home office is located. Two coats of Yshield paint, properly earthed to a plate on the wall and covered by two coats of regular paint, blocked out the continual bombardment of WiFi signals and genuinely astonished me by the difference it made. I felt like a weight I hadn’t even realized I’d been carrying had been lifted off me. Readings taken on my Acoustimeter confirm that WiFi levels have fallen to zero.
WiFi inside your home
Of course, there’s no point blocking out external sources of WiFi if you still generate it inside your home by using a WiFi router or cordless (DECT) phones. Here are links to more information about that…
