When people work with information on an electronic device, they can unwittingly transmit plain text information as well as interference radiation. This text can be intercepted and read by unauthorized persons, leading to a loss of confidentiality.
Low-radiation or radiation-proof rooms are defined as the structural upgrading (shielding) of a room in order to prevent the propagation of compromising radiation to the outside. These rooms prevent high-frequency radiation from computers, printers and the peripherals connected to them. Compromising radiation must be distinguished from electromagnetic compatibility, which merely involves the mutual influence of electromagnetic fields between devices. The limit values for electromagnetic compatibility are generally not sufficient to prevent compromising radiation.
Due to the almost endless variety of rooms, including windows, built-in bathrooms and telecommunications equipment, which must function without interference in corresponding rooms, the room shielding system is particularly suitable for these applications.
