Problem: Cords give off high electric fields from the high-voltage wires and interact with our bodies.
Introducing SafeCord Version 2.0 - Our Revolutionary and Exclusive Shielded Extension Cord
ElectraHealth, the premium brand for measurably reducing exposure to EMF/EMR in one's environment, brought you version 1.0 of our shielded cords. Now we have produced version 2.0 which is new and improved. We have also partnered with SaferTech to promote and let the world know about these important advancements in consumer cords.
Version 1 was the first-of-its-kind shielded extension cord is molded, machine-made, UL, and proven to work. Now version 2.0 is improved with double shielding. The extra shielding can reduce electric fields more reliably and can also protect the cord from physical damage.
Normal extension cords, power strips, and power cords of all kinds are not shielded. The conductors inside the cord of a typical cord are just covered in plastic. This allows the electric field - measured in volts per meter - to freely permeate out in the environment. These alternating-current electric fields are switching from positive to negative and drawing the electrons in one's body and then repelling them, causing oscillation. In particular the high frequencies ("dirty electricity") are believed to be the most harmful.
The Building Biology Institute (BBI) sets standards for exposure to electric fields at .3 volts per meter. Using ElectraHealth premium shielded extension cords, power cords, and properly-grounded shielded ethernet cables greatly reduces the electric field readings. It's always the cords that are closest to us or plugged-in in the same room that cause the highest readings. shielded cords can reduce these readings greater than 90% in many circumstances.
It is recommended to replace all extension cords with shielded cords. ElectraHealth shielded extension cords are also commonly used to replace built-in cords in devices. This type of work should be performed by a qualified professional. The old unshielded cord can be removed from a device and the shielded cord installed and put in its place.
