EMI shielded ventilation panels for ventilation and heating in screened rooms, EMI shielding rooms & Faraday cages
Honeycomb vents are used to shield openings for ventilation or acoustic/visual contact. We can supply these vents according to your drawing within a few days, or you can use our standard range from stock.
We can supply Honeycomb vents with frames, pre-drilled with fasteners or with flow-drilled thread holes. The standard material is aluminum which can be given a nickel finish (or any other finish you choose).
If high shielding levels are required, the use of cross-cell honeycombs is recommended. These are constructed from multiple sections of 6.35mm or 12.7mm or 26.3mm thick honeycombs within a single frame. The shielding performance will improve as air flow is decreased, but not eliminated.
For defense applications we can provide a heavy hot-dip galvanized mild-steel version.
Please contact us for more information.
Honeycombs are also frequently used as flow straighteners to create a laminar flow.

Our 9500 series framed Honeycomb ventilation panels are generally supplied with a 6800 series Amucor gasket.
This is a EMC gasket with an aluminium alloy. Suitable for most applications. However, due to galvanic corrosion for some applications, the Honeycombs can also be supplied with a 1200 series Metal knit gasket.
Our Honeycomb ventilation panels are usually custom made for our client. However, some common dimensions are in stock. In the standard dimensions table below some common types of Honeycomb ventilation panels are specified to illustrate the required information. Hole diameter P is standard 3.5mm, with other dimensions possible on request. Also available with screw apertures or inserts.
