A circuit breaker box (or fuse box) in the bedroom, living room, kitchen, or other living space can be a real problem. Strong magnetic field emissions (depending on how much electric current is flowing) and electric field emissions can make the nearby area hazardous to occupy, especially for long periods. Shielding is certainly possible, but the shield must not hamper quick and easy access to the controls inside the box.
If you are handy, you can use the magnetic shielding materials listed below to make your own hinged shield. If you want an easier solution, here it is. It’s a picture (or poster) in a nice frame, with high performance Giron shielding material behind the picture. Just put a nail above the breaker box and hang the shielded picture where you need it. The bigger the shield, the better the shielding. In our tests, a 2-foot section of Giron in a 24x36 inch frame provided 50-70% reduction of magnetic field. If you need a shield larger than what is suggested here, just contact us, we will be happy to assist you
Step one: Purchase Giron, 25.5 inch wide x 24 inch
Step two: Get one of the following, at least 24x36 inches:
Obviously, these are just examples. Get something you like.
Step three: Get a nice picture to put in the frame.
Put the picture in the frame. Insert cardboard behind the picture. Insert Giron behind the cardboard (careful as you handle it, the edges are sharp!). Use duct tape to hold the Giron in place if needed. Position the Giron so it will be centered over the magnetic “hotspot” on the wall. If you have room, insert another layer of cardboard behind the Giron. Now hang your Picture! Final product weighs about 9 pounds, depending on the frame you select.
