Zip-Shield® (SH1)

Drawing No. ZT97-17-004

Protective Jacket w/ Pressure Track, Aluminum Foil Shielding & 15 AWG Ground Wire

Zip-Shield® (SH1) was developed as an extremely effective EMI shielding solution for hardening cable and wire bundles. The jacket, track and aluminum foil combination provides excellent shielding performance and can be used in most general purpose applications such as electronics racks and network cable bundling. Zip-Shield® (SH1) is configurable in many different exterior material options, including colors, material thickness and pressure track closure options. All configurations come with a full length 15 AWG ground wire sewn in which provides options for both termination and grounding.
