Viracon Introduces CyberShield™ With Pilkington DATASTOP™

New Glass Coating Provides RF Shielding for Secure Building ApplicationsOwatonna, MN – Viracon announces CyberShield™ - a glass coating specifically engineered to reduce the transmission of radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic radiation, also known as RF shielding."With more data being transmitted and shared electronically, it is becoming necessary to protect private conversations, boardroom discussions and trade secret documents from electronic eavesdropping," says Kevin Anez, Director of Marketing and Product Management for Viracon.

"CyberShield was developed to help government organizations, businesses, architects and building owners design secure buildings."

CyberShield offers electrical attenuation with an average of 45 decibels (dB) across a frequency range from 35 megahertz (MHz) to 18 gigahertz (GHz), while optimizing visible light transmission with a neutral glass color. Additionally, glass performance can be enhanced with low-emissivity coatings and/or silk-screen solutions.

CyberShield glass can be used as a glazing solution for exterior or interior walls where RF shielding is needed. The Pilkington DATASTOP coating on the glass is conductively connected to the window frame around the perimeter of the window to ensure maximum effectiveness.

Available in laminated, insulating laminated and double laminated insulating glass, CyberShield requires heat-treating and special glazing requirements of a conductive gasket or conductive silicone to maximize performance.
