Product details:

Protect sensitive compartmentalized information in your designated room, area, or space using Ultra NT SCIF Barrier from EcoFoil. Ultra NT SCIF Barrier is a heavy-duty RF shielding material that contains a woven polyethylene sheet bonded between two highly reflective, tear-proof aluminum foil surfaces. It's designed to block RF frequencies from entering or exiting SCIF rooms and is often used in military, government, and corporate applications, as well as other ICD 705 certified projects.

Ultra NT SCIF Barrier is manufactured by Covertech and is often referred to as rFOIL® 1800 Ultra NT in many SCIF room specifications.

This product is also available in 500 sq ft rolls. Perforated SCIF Barrier is also available for applications that require passage of air and moisture.

How to install SCIF Barrier

This RF shielding foil is lightweight and easy to install. For maximum efficiency, Ultra NT SCIF Barrier should be installed along walls, floors, and ceilings to prevent RF signals from intruding. SCIF Barrier can be installed in your room or space using two methods:

  • Stapling - If studs are exposed, the RF blocking material can be stapled directly to them, using SCIF tape to cover any punctures from the staples.

  • Spray-Lock Eco-Friendly Spray Adhesive - Alternatively, installers can used this adhesive spray to bond Ultra NT SCIF Barrier to many types of substrates including concrete, metal, plywood, FRP panels, and more.

What is a SCIF?

SCIF stands for Sensitive Compartmentalized Information Facilities. This term is often used by the Department of Defense when referring to a highly secure room or data center that inhibits electronic surveillance and suppresses data leakage.

A SCIF is an accredited area, room, building, or installation where sensitive information may be stored, discussed, or processed. The information and materials in these spaces require special controls for restricted handling within compartmented intelligence systems, primarily for military, government, or corporate applications. Ultra NT SCIF Barrier is primarily used for radio frequency shielding and is also an approved water vapor barrier when seams are sealed with SCIF tape.

    SCIF tape options:

    Use of SCIF tape is recommended in most projects, in order to seal the seams and maintain the integrity of your installation. Be sure to check your specifications closely. In most cases, you will want to use our 3" Aluminum SCIF TapeSince every seam of the product needs taped, we recommend two rolls of tape for each 500 sq. ft. roll of SCIF barrier ordered.

    Some specs call for 3M Conductive Adhesive SCIF Tape which is occasionally specified on some jobs for its unique conductive properties. Always refer to your spec sheet to determine which type of material and tape is best for your project.
