What Are Faraday Cages & RFI Shielding?

The Faraday cage or RFI shielding was invented by the Michael Faraday in 1836 and is still an effective way to protect people and electronic instruments from electrical fields outside the cage or shielding. Because of the high conductive properties of copper, the outer electrical source is canceled out, causing whatever is inside the cage to be unaffected by the outer electrical charge and radio frequency interference (RFI).  

Uses

Faraday cages can be used in a variety of applications. You probably use one in your kitchen everyday — your microwave! Your microwave appliance heats your food using microwaves. However, microwaves are extremely dangerous and the Faraday cage in your microwave protects you, keeping the microwaves in your appliance. Faraday cages are also used by electricians for protection as they work on various tasks, during an MRI, for EMI shielding, and as lightning safety.

Copper mesh is exactly what it sounds like: it is a screening material that is made either entirely or partly from copper and is copper-colored when first installed until it patinas to a elegant bronze color. This screening material has a lot of uses including installation as insect screen in windows and screen doors for pest control. Because of copper’s composition, copper screen is ductile, malleable, and also possess the qualities of high thermal and electrical conductivity. It also does not oxidize like aluminum screening. Copper screen has become a popular material to screen renovated and coastal homes and historic buildings in addition to a variety of other uses. Additionally, our copper screen coordinates seamlessly with copper architectural accents such as roofing, dormers, and gutters and works well in screen doors, windows, and porches.

Copper is a material that has been used in construction as well as other uses for thousands of years. Because of its resistance to corrosion, high thermal and electrical conductivity, copper screen has been used in many applications. Those applications include insect screen, pest control fumigation, decorative elements robotic and power automation, health industry, bookbinding, and even robotics and power automation.

Why Install It in Your Window Screens and Screen Doors?

Though there are a ton of uses for copper screen besides window screens, the question that you’re probably asking is “why should you install it in your window screens and screen doors?” You may be especially curious as to why you should install it in your screens when you could install traditional fiberglass or aluminum screen.

 

To answer this question concisely, you should install it for aesthetic reasons, as well as for its resistance to oxidation.

Aesthetics

One of the reasons why you bought your vintage home was probably because of its aesthetics. Older homes are appealing because they are all unique. Yes, they may reflect design elements of a particular era, but they all have their own characteristics and unique charm. We recommend installing copper screen in your window screens, screen doors, and screened-in porch panels as it best compliments the look of most historic homes with a nostalgic, elegant look.

Why Be Like Everyone Else?

Though you could install insect screen that is normally used in mass-produced box homes, why not install copper screen? Copper screen provides the same benefits as any other screen, (i.e. keeps the eight- and six-legged pests, tree leaves, the occasional loose plastic bag blowing in the wind) however, it does so by with elegance while complimenting the aesthetics of your one-of-a-kind, timeless home.

A Elegant Screen For Your Timeless Home

Copper screen when it is first installed is a bright, beautiful copper color. It ages to a subtle bronze patina. To prove our point, many historical structures are screened with copper screen because it doesn’t distract from the styling of the buildings themselves and the first screens used were actually made out of copper!    

 

Corrosion Resistance

Copper isn’t just another screen with a “pretty face”; copper screen is extremely resistant to oxidation, particularly the corrosive properties of salt air and brine making it an excellent choice for coastal buildings and homes. If you live near the coast, you most likely understand how corrosive salt water and the surrounding atmosphere can be. Everything near the coast seems to rust more easily and faster than those in other environments. Screens that are repeatedly exposed to salt spray and the salty air tend to rust and break down a lot sooner than those that are made from elements like copper.  

 

Why Doesn’t Copper Break Down?      

First, we need to look at why other metals seem to rust faster than copper. Without getting too technical, salt water causes the electrons in metal to move more easily than when metal is in fresh water. Also, because salt water makes for a good conductor, it is a catalyst for a variety of  different chemical reactions — and a catalyst for rust production.

 

Copper and zinc are resistant to rust and instead produce a beautiful patina and maintain their structural integrity when they come in contact with salt water. Copper and zinc, which is a component of our Brite Bronze screens, actually reverses the process of corrosion and instead produces iron which is what appears as the bronze-colored patina on your screen or other copper materials.

More Benefits to Installing Copper Screen

Cost-Effective

Because copper screen increases the longevity of your window screens and screen doors in coastal conditions, you save money by installing copper screens in your home, hotel, business, and other structures. Though initially installing copper screen may be a bit more of an investment when compared to installing traditional screen materials, copper screen will easily and quickly prove to be a worthwhile investment.

Easy to Install

Copper screen is very malleable, making it easy to install in your window screens, screen doors, and screened-in porch panels. To give you options, Metro Screenworks offers copper screen in screen rolls in various lengths, sizes, and types to provide you the options you need to complete your screening projects.
