Custom RF Shielded Enclosures

RF shielded enclosure refers to any box, chassis, or other packaging that prevents the passing of electromagnetic interference or radio frequency. This includes blocking signal both entering and exiting the enclosure through attenuation. K-Form designs and manufactures a wide variety of enclosures from rugged electronics packaging to mobile shielded SCIFs. Although the use of shielding is widespread, K-Form focuses on Defense and Aerospace applications for critical mission systems.

K-Form combines an extensive knowledge of RF shielding practices with experience as a prototype manufacturer. We have decades of product development experience and a 30,000 square foot facility dedicated to low-volume and prototype manufacturing. This provides unique value for markets interested in mitigating the threat of comprising emissions. Do not waste time designing around sub-optimal COTS enclosures. K-Form offers proven solutions to meet your unique needs. We are able to custom design RF shielded enclosures to meet application requirements.

    Example Specs:
  • MIL-STD-461
  • MIL-STD-901
  • MIL-STD 810
  • DO-160

COTS+ Philosophy

A root of our success in developing custom RF shielded enclosures is the philosophy of employing proven design solutions. K-Form blends our standardized products, past projects, and new technology to meet challenging requirements.

Pushing Performance

Over 30 years, K-Form has collaborated with customers to develop hundreds of products meeting the toughest requirements in the world. Requests for custom RF shielded enclosures give K-Form invaluable customer input. This input pushes us to continually improve our products. Custom features, odd sizes, and challenging applications contribute to our next generation products. The current Paladin and Sentinel RF shielded racks have numerous improvement derived from custom projects.

    Example Improvements:
  • Lift-off Hinges
  • Liquid Cooling
  • Custom Power Line Filters
  • Specialized Waveguides
  • High Attenuation
  • Increased Shielding Frequency Range

RF Shielding Materials

K-Form uses the best RF shielding materials. Custom designs benefit from a deep knowledge of the market. Unique problems may require unique RF shielding materials. K-Form was an early adopter of “fabric-over-foam” gaskets. We use waterjet cutting to cut complex shapes in elastomer.
