Metallic Braids

By leveraging proven design methods, our metallic braided shields maximize EMI performance from DC to light by keeping optical coverage at 90%, braid angles low, and apertures as small as possible.  In addition, our braids are mechanically stable and easy to install.  Unlike companies that just braid wire, we understand EMI shielding, whether over braided on a custom harness or purchased as a braided shield, you can count on us for the right solution to your EMI shielding problem.
