The Mission Darkness™ Shielded Honeycomb Air Vent is primarily used to obtain effective electromagnetic shielding while allowing excellent airflow, for ventilation and heating in screened rooms, EMI/RF shielded rooms, electrical control panels, faraday cages, or any type of shielded enclosure. It's fabricated from a high-performance and corrosion resistant steel material. It has been lab tested and certified to shielding effectiveness standards IEEE 299-2006 (see report below).
EMI Shielding Steel Honeycomb Air Ventilation Panel
The set includes all hardware components needed for installation, including an EMI/EMC shielding honeycomb air ventilation panel and frame with pre-drilled holes, screws, and wire mesh gaskets, enabling easy mounting.
Ensure that shielding is maintained by mounting the vent directly into a conductive material, such as TitanRF™ Faraday Fabric. Watch the demonstration video to see how easy it is to install.

Shielded Honeycomb Air Vent Laboratory Testing, to Confirm Shielding Effectiveness Standards IEEE 299-266
Testing Completed by Keystone Compliance Laboratory on October 7, 2020
The Shielded Honeycomb Air Vent has been tested and certified to meet shielding effectiveness standards IEEE 299-2006. The shielding effectiveness test was conducted by Keystone Compliance, a full-service regulatory compliance laboratory offering solutions for nearly all EMC/EMI, environmental, ISTA-certified package and ingress protection testing requirements. IEEE 299-2006 is the standard test method for measuring the effectiveness of electromagnetic shielding enclosures and materials. A properly-shielded device will effectively retain all RF energy in its faraday enclosure and keep all external RF isolated. The Shielded Honeycomb Air Vent is advertised as a product that can be used to maintain conductivity in isolated rooms/enclosures, by blocking the frequency range most mobile devices and electronics transmit/operate within. To provide validation for this claim, the shielding effectiveness test measured how well the air vent shields frequencies between 1.5GHz to 40GHz. The positive test results provides authentication of its shielding abilities. The full test report and signal attenuation graph can be viewed on the link below.
The image above shows the shielding effectiveness graph of the Shielded Honeycomb Air Vent tested at a frequency range of 1.5GHz to 40GHz. The green line reflects the sample attenuation.
Complete Your Project with TitanRF™ Faraday Supplies
Use TitanRF faraday supplies for the construction of your EMI/EMR reduction project or RF shielding enclosure. TitanRF Faraday Fabric can be used to create a shielded room or faraday cage. TitanRF Faraday Tape can be used to connect multiple fabric sheets or panels, seal enclosures, mend punctured fabric, and more.
The fabric and tape are often used to make the air vent installation easy, efficient, and to maintain conductivity.
Additional RF shielding materials include patches and foam gaskets. Watch the video to see how all of the materials can be used to build a faraday box.
