What You Need To Know About EMR

What causes EMR?

Many people are sensitive to electric and magnetic frequencies (EMF) and radio frequencies (RF), which generate electromagnetic radiation (EMR).

  • High frequency radiation comes from TV and radio broadcasting antennas, digital telephones, baby alarms, smart meters and wireless networks.
  • Low frequency electric fields are generated from power supply lines.
  • Cell towers for mobile phones also emit radio frequencies.

What are the effects of EMR?

Electromagnetic radiation EMR from both EMF and RF frequencies has been researched for many years and has been linked to a variety of health problems ranging from memory loss, allergies and depression to reduced fertility, Alzheimer's disease and brain tumors.

What changes will 5G bring?

Unlike previous generations of cellular networks, 5G relies on an ultra-high frequency and ultra-high intensity network. What does that mean?

  • First, 5G emits “ultra-high frequencies”. The higher the frequency, the shorter the length of each wave. This means more waves hit our bodies in the same amount of time. Previous cellular generations emitted from 1 to 6 GHz frequencies. 5G cell towers may emit frequencies as high as 300 GHz.
  • Second, 5G technology requires “ultra-high intensity.” Since the shorter length millimeter waves used in 5G do not travel as far (and are more easily obstructed), the cell signal will not be reliable with the current number of cell towers. To compensate, many more 5G cell towers will have to be installed.

All of these factors combined will greatly increase RF radiation exposure with 5G.

How can I block EMR?

For homeowners and commercial property owners who are concerned about the effects of EMR radiation and want to protect against it, ECOS has developed EMR Shielding Paint that blocks up to 99.99% of this potentially harmful radiation (45dB attenuation with 2 coats at 5GHz). ECOS EMR Shielding Paint provides a simple and effective solution to provide EMF radiation protection, especially when compared to other options such as fabrics or metal paneling.
