Use TitanRF Faraday Fabric to Create Your Own RF Shielding Enclosure

Mission Darkness™ TitanRF Faraday Fabric offers the next generation of faraday shielding and is certified to military standards MIL-STD-188-125. This compliance measure not only ensures that the fabric shields against high-altitude electromagnetic pulses (HEMPs) and related occurrences, such as coronal mass ejections (CMEs), electrostatic discharges (ESDs), and solar flares, but provides concrete proof to the shielding ability and effectiveness of the fabric.

TitanRF Faraday Fabric uses a copper and nickel composition to achieve an average attenuation of 80dB-100dB from 10Mz to 5Ghz. This is the same fabric that is used by military and law enforcement forensics investigators to block all wireless signals, including cell phone, WiFi, Bluetooth, and GPS. It is also used by civilians for EMP protection, personal data and identity protection, signal isolation in secure facilities, RF isolation for hardware and software testing, harmful EMF reduction, anti-credit card skimming, digital privacy, and more.

The fabric can be easily cut, sewn, or taped to surfaces for creating DIY faraday cages or RF shielding enclosures. The fabric comes with a sample of TitanRF Faraday Tape which can be used to tape together layers of TitanRF Faraday Fabric. Check out our faraday testing apps to confirm your design is properly shielding (see below). Read our TitanRF Faraday Fabric FAQ for usage tips and answers to commonly asked questions regarding using the material for faraday cages and RF shielded enclosures. *Contact us if you need custom dimensions or a full roll or fabric.

Frequently Asked Questions

The "Do-It-Yourself" shielded enclosure FAQ page includes a list of frequently asked questions with answers and best practices related to using Mission Darkness™ TitanRF Faraday Fabric for building radio frequency (RF) shielding enclosures.



Testing Completed by Keystone Compliance, an Accredited Regulatory Compliance Laboratory

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. The purpose of the test was to determine the material's ability to reduce the electromagnetic field in a space by blocking the field with barriers made of conductive and/or magnetic materials. Multiple shielding effectiveness tests were performed to conclude that the Mission Darkness TitanRF Faraday Fabric was certified "compliant" for High-Altitude Electromagnetic Protection for Ground Based C41 Facilities. The results ensure that the material surpasses military shielding requirements to handle natural or man-made EMPs.

We tested single, double, and triple fabric layers to understand how fabric layering relates to the increase in signal attenuation. The images below show the shielding effectiveness results of various layers. *This should be taken into consideration when building your own faraday enclosure, to ensure that you are using enough layers for specific attenuation needs.

The frequency range investigated and all test results are noted in the report generated by Keystone Compliance.


Simple Steps for Creating Your Own Faraday Enclosure


Complete Your Project With TitanRF Faraday Tape & Patches

Use TitanRF Faraday Tape and Patches alongside the fabric to complete your RF shielding enclosure or project. The Do-It-Yourself faraday enclosure video demonstrates how you can use the materials for projects such as making custom faraday cages, EMI/EMR reduction, sealing RF enclosures, connecting multiple sheets of fabric, mending a punctured faraday bag, and more. Read the section below for larger scale RF shielding construction project tips. TitanRF faraday supplies are available in various widths and lengths; purchase more materials as necessary for your project. Click the buttons below to visit the product pages.


Using TitanRF Faraday Material in Construction, Faraday Rooms & Tents

TitanRF Faraday Fabric and Tape can be used for constructing signal proof rooms and tents. In order to create a fully shielded room, there cannot be any opening or holes, otherwise signal may penetrate. We recommend using two layers of fabric on the floor, ceiling, and walls, ensuring that the material is overlapping on all sides and seams. *Construction instructions are highly dependent on your specific application, and will vary depending on the size and type of room.

    • For faraday cages or rooms designed only to store electronics, the construction may be simple since you will not need to take into consideration additional factors, such as windows and vents.
    • For inhabitable faraday rooms or tents, you may need to incorporate additional components such as EMI/RFI shielded vents, windows, filters, etc., as well as a signal proof doorway. Read the tips below for further clarification into the items that need to be shielded.

Examples of How to Use TitanRF Faraday Fabric and Tape for Construction Projects


Shielded Walls

You can use various construction methods to line the walls of your room or enclosure with TitanRF Faraday Fabric. Methods include placing the fabric between drywall, gluing it with a general contact adhesive (apply a thin layer and avoid using heavy adhesive), using TitanRF Faraday Tape to tape it in place or connect multiple fabric sheets, etc. Driving screws through the fabric may or may not be acceptable (use sparingly).

    • The images above show how you can use the fabric to cover building materials such as dry wall. Use the TitanRF Faraday Tape to create/maintain a conductive seal and repair fabric punctures.

Shielded Outlets, Filters, Pipes, etc.

If your room requires power, HVAC, HDMI, RJ45, LAN, liquids, gases, etc., to pass through the walls, you will need shielded filters with wall mountings, feed-through pipes, and various other requirements. Specialized filters must be used in order to protect the room's environment against electromagnetic disturbances.

Shielded Doorways

If incorporating a re-closable door, it must be able to properly seal with each use. Options include purchasing a shielded door/frame or creating your own. Generally you would need to seal the doorway with some kind of conductive sealing gasket to ensure signal blockage.

Shielded Air Vents

Shielded vents are required in order to allow the free-flow of air into a shielded room for ventilation and to prevent electromagnetic interference from entering the room. Mounting methods will vary depending on vent style and materials used throughout the project.

Shielded Transparent Windows

If you need shielded windows of some sort, options may include using transparent faraday fabric as a window covering, purchasing shielded windows/skylights/glass walls, etc. Attachment methods will depend on materials used.

Please be aware that these construction tips are only general. Many factors will effect the shielding effectiveness of your faraday room or tent. We recommend building a miniature room model beforehand to test your shielding materials and construction methods, then using the Mission Darkness testing app or a signal analyzer to determine if the design is effective.
