Upholstered seat cushion for shielding and grounding of low-frequency electrical alternating fields. Thanks to the SILVER GRID shielding material with a silver grid, it is also ideally suited for Earth Connect* applications.
This upholstered seat cushion is made of 3 cm thick foam and covered with SILVER GRID, a semi-transparent cotton fabric enriched with silver threads. The seat cushion is very practical and, with dimensions of 45 x 45 cm, very flexible in use. The underlay fits on almost any chair, office chair or couch and whether used at home, in the home office or on business trips.
The silver mesh integrated in SILVER GRID is significantly narrower and more conductive than is otherwise usual on the market, i.e. this Shielding is the protection from the effects of external fault zones and environmental influences (on a person's health most of the time). More material is predestined for use as an earth contact*, i.e. the active connection to earth. And that’s exactly the focus of the development of this seat custion – the possibility of high-quality Grounding is an electrically conductive connection with the electric potential of the ground. More of your own body.
For reasons of building biology, we recommend using Earth Connect* products such as this seat cushion in EMF-shielded rooms (HF + LF) if possible. Further details on this below in the info block on Earth Connect.
This product or our entire product series for ground contact is not an Electrosmog is a colloquial term for all emissions from electric, magnetic, and electromagnetic fields. More shielding product with effective protection against wireless technologies such as WIFI or mobile phone radiation. Even if the shielding attenuation is 13 dB, this is clearly too low in terms of building biology to be considered an EMF shielding product. Furthermore, we generally recommend not to use any mobile EMF protection products such as bed linen or sleeping bags as electrosmog protection at home, but to invest in full EMF protection, i.e. a shielded room, canopy or tent. This also enables the use of an Earth Connect* product in terms of measurement.
Application and characteristics of the seat cushion for Earth Connect
The application is practical and extremely flexible because the upholstered seat cushion can be placed on almost any chair. For the optimal Earth Connect* effect, it is necessary to establish direct skin contact with the conductive fabric cover of the seat pad. Of course,Earth Connect works, albeit somewhat reduced, through thin clothing made of natural fibers such as cotton, linen or hemp.
The SILVER GRID shielding fabric enables high-quality LF grounding, is compatible for ground contact* applications and convinces with good textile properties, i.e. it is washable, ironable and easy to sew. The quality of the fabric is outstanding, which is also reflected in a long service life. The composition of unbleached cotton and silver threads create a tight and powerful silver mesh with low resistance and high grounding quality.
HIGH QUALITY GROUNDING FOR MAXIMUM EARTH CONNECT* EFFECT
- You will achieve the best and “most natural connect to earth” by inserting the grounding rod into the ground, in front of your house. Alternatively use a grounding plug for socket outlets.
- Rod or plug are connected with grounding cables. Most suitable for grounding plug are short cables, for exterior use with grounding rod GCR you will have to use 1–2 longer cables plus cable distributor.
- Our Earth Connect* products have two silver-plated Velcro fasteners sewn on.For connecting cables with the hook and loop fastener, you will need the Velcro plate.
- Important: Under bad conditions electrical fields (bedside lamp, clock radio, etc.) will couple on and will worse the situation. We recommend a measurement analysis with a LF meter. More information in the following information block.
- The matching components can be found in the product category “Grounding“.
INGENIOUS AND RISKY IF APPLIED INCORRECTLY!
Earth Connect is a new trend or science from the USA, with research into the positive effects of conjunction the body with the earth. This connection we called "Earth Connect", meaning to ground yourself. For the layman, this can best be described as walking barefoot through the meadow and its positive effect on personal well-being.
Many people spend the whole day in closed shoes with rubber soles and plastic soles, sleep on insulated mattresses and live in insulated houses, i.e. modern man lives his life disconnected from the earth. In building biology, the 80% share is generally spoken of - we spend 80 percent of our lifetime in closed rooms, far from nature. By means of a high-quality connection to earth, i.e. Earth Connect, this topic is changed and increased to a more optimal connect level.
As a technical company, we will not comment on the health aspects of Earth Connect. If you are interested, we recommend the EARTHING specialist literature by Clinton Ober, Stephen Sinatra or Martin Zucker.
EXPRESS WARNING FOR EARTH CONNECT WITHOUT MEASUREMENT
This is the moment when the LF meter becomes a true friend. The topic here is the entire electrosmog within the room through the electrical wiring in the wall and the device power cable. The resulting electrical alternating field NF expands from every unshielded electric cable up to two meters in all directions. Electric field strengths and thus loads of well over 1,000 V/M are not uncommon.
If an Earth Connect product is used in this field, there is a real danger that the alternating electrical field NF will also couple to this Earth Connect product and thus have an even more direct, even more intense effect on the body.
In order to avoid this deterioration of the field situation, an LF measurement must be carried out prior to the application to the Earth Connect for reasons of building biology and measurement technology.
For professional reasons, we recommend using an Earth Connect product exclusively in EMF shielded and earthed rooms and, if at all possible, not connecting it to the socket but directly to a separate grounding rod in the ground in front of the house (garden).
