Data Centre Shielding

With our own installation and test teams operating worldwide, EEP are able to offer complete solutions which integrate with the fabric of the data centre building and all the services entering the facility.


Data Centres are used for the storage, management and dissemination of dataand are the backbone of today’s society. With an increase in the uptake of cloud computing, business and government organisations scrutinise data centres to a higher degree in areas such as security, availability, environmental impact and adherence to standards.

External threats to data centres come in many forms; these include electronic eavesdropping, whereby users may unwittingly feed sensitive information such as passwords and account numbers to an attacker are a risk but for most commercial applications encryption of data is adequate. These attacks are insidious because it is difficult to know they are happening.

An area of particular concern is the vulnerability to external attacks, whether accidental or deliberate, from electromagnetic surges or electronic pulse weapons which produce an EMP type surge. Damaging current and extremely high voltage surges can result in disruption or the complete destruction of electronic data processing and storage systems.

To mitigate the risk, European EMC Products can supply full protection against conducted and radiated electromagnetic interference by way of a nuclear pulse, known as an Electromagnetic Pulse (EMP), or a deliberate pulse generated by a non-nuclear device such as Marx generator, also known as Intentional Electromagnetic Interference (IEMI).

We also offer full Data Centre Testing services to identify any possible weaknesses in host rooms/buildings.
