Here in a relatively large city like Dallas, there are radio frequency (RF) waves bombarding us at all times from various sources. This is true in almost any city due to population density and technology. As such, usually the closer you are to a city center the more RF you are exposed to. While this type of wave is for the most part harmless–some people react poorly to it and in large doses, close, consistent doses there is some anecdotal evidence it could cause harm. It also poses a security threat to your Dallas home or business. Read below to find out more

RF Blocking Window Film for Better Health

RF radiation could be detrimental to health because of the low-energy type of wave it is. It is not high energy like other types of waves like “non-ionizing radiation”/infrared and visible light. However, it carries more energy than more harmless rays frequency radiation types. This type of wave typically can cause heat in the body, especially when a person is nearby for an extended amount of time to a tower or radio source. This could, potentially cause harm to the human body but no research is clear as to how much if at all. So, to be clear, these waves should not be considered extremely harmful to humans at this time. As mentioned.. anecdotally, there is a vague link to RF exposure and poor human health conditions like headaches, ear ringing, and blurry vision. The closer to a radio broadcasting source someone live, the higher the chance that RF waves affect them and the solution to this could be RF blocking window film. It blocks these waves through when applied to windows of homes and businesses. Customers with this technology often report feeling better from this additional layer of RF protection

RF Blocking Window Film for Better Cyber Security

In regards to security. RF films have long been used by companies, specifically those who work for or are part of the US government. RF window films allow them to protect very sensitive classified information from espionage. However, in a new digital era, this type of film is being deployed to protect the digital information entering and leaving homes in Dallas and other cities across the US. It very well could become a new reality. This is because windows without RF protection are proving to be susceptible to cyber intrusion and hacking of wifi and/or wireless networks. The way RF window films protect is by stopping the intrusion at the source– your windows. Typically RF penetration through building materials is not very good–so criminals target glass windows to gather sensitive data. Although these films are not commonly used in homes in Dallas, for companies that need very high cyber-security protection they are used frequently and have been for some time: military, military contractors, and cyber companies. Over the next decade or some other businesses may very well be adopted RF Blocking window film technology too. Any company that handles secure information like banks, government agencies and even healthcare organizations are all targets for cybercriminals. Also, as the number of people working from home increases, RF films may become the new norm for those who work with large amounts of private data.
