Hire Policy

Close X

EMR Australia offers Australian residents the option to hire various meters. The following terms and conditions apply to meter hire:

Hire period is for seven days from the date on which the equipment is received. It is deemed to be received when it reaches the address or post office box of the hirer. EMR Australia PL inspects equipment for condition before sending it to the hirer and packages it carefully for transportation by post.

The hirer agrees to take good care of the equipment during the hire period and not to allow the equipment to be used by anyone outside his or her immediate family. The hirer agrees to return the equipment on or before the required date or to pay the necessary late fee. Late fees are calculated at $10 a day for one meter; $20 a day for 2 meters and $25 a day for 3 meters. These fees may be billed directly to the hirer’s credit card. If the hirer fails to return the meter(s) within one month, he or she will be charged for the full cost of the meter(s) and a $20 administration fee.

The hirer agrees to return the equipment to EMR Australia PL in good condition. If equipment is returned in a damaged state, EMR Australia PL has the right to charge the hirer for the replacement cost of the equipment. The hirer further agrees to return the meters carefully packaged for transportation by the postage method indicated in the kit. Should the hired equipment hired require repair during the hire period, the hirer agrees to contact EMR Australia PL and not to undertake any repairs him- or herself. EMR Australia PL will organise the repair or replacement of the equipment.

The hirer may return DE2 filters included in the deTekta hire package if they are in as-new condition, suitable for resale. If the DE2 filters or their packaging are damaged in any way, the hirer agrees to pay the purchase price for the filter(s).

EMR Australia PL’s meters may have some degree of inaccuracy and are intended to provide guidance of exposure levels. They are not to be used for medical, legal, certification or similar purposes.

The hirer accepts complete responsibility for any injury or loss resulting from the use of the equipment and agrees to indemnity EMR Australia against all claims relating to such injury or loss.

  • Alpha Shield (LX 70)

    Dimensions: 48” 60” (inches)


    Shipping: Express Post

    Our Alpha window-shielding film provides excellent protection against radiofrequency (wireless) radiation from mobile phone base stations, NBN transmitters as well as neighbour's WiFi signals. It is the film most of our customers choose.


    Our premium window shielding film, the Alpha Shield, provides excellent shielding across a wide range of frequencies. It does not substantially affect the appearance of the glass and can be installed on most types of glass.

    Unlike our other shielding window films, Alpha shield can be used on car windows (see below). 

    Its shielding effectiveness is shown in the following table in dB. Each 6 dB represents a 50 percent reduction of signal. Therefore, the higher the dB, the greater the attenuation (reduction) of the signal. Attenuation of 25dB or more is desirable for effective shielding.

    Please email us with:

    • your name and address
    • the dimensions of each pane of glass and add 50mm in width and length.


    The higher the number in the chart, the greater the degree of protection.

    The Alpha film provides around 30dB of attenuation at 3.6GHz. Because every 6dB of attenuation is reduces signal strength by 50%, this means that at that frequency the strength of the signal is reduced to about 3.1% of the original level.

    Will Alpha shield protect against 5G radiation?

    Our Alpha shielding film protects against a wide range of frequencies, as you can see from the table above, including the 3.5 GHz that is being used for 5G.

    The degree of protection varies according to frequency. At the 5G frequency of 3.5 GHz, it is between 29 and 48 dB. It has not yet been tested for frequencies above 20 GHz but is expected to still provide good shielding.

    Edge sealant

    • This film requires edge sealant to be applied some days after the installation of the film, so this will require a second visit from the installer.

    Installation on cars

    • The Alpha film can be installed on some car windows.
    • It can be applied to side and rear windows but, due to legal restrictions, not to the entire surface of the windscreen.
    • For practical reasons, it would be applied without edge sealant.
    • Please check with your installer how much film you'll need.

    Please note that we take no responsibility for the installation of the film.


    These prices are a guide only. They include GST but do not include the cost to cut the film and freight.

    They are provided to help you select the film that is most suitable for your home or workplace.

    • Removal of films that have been applied with dry adhesive can be difficult and can only be done using razor blade scrapers. However, blades can't be used on Low E glass which has a coating on the inside.  Although film can be applied to this glass, it's not possible to use any blades on the glass for cleaning or removal of film.
    • If you're planning to order new windows or doors in your home, consider this alternative to Low E glass: applying our film to your glass will result in much greater energy efficiency and you won't have to worry about damaging the glass if the film ever needs to be removed.
    • If you decide to install the film yourself, please note that the film warranty will not apply.

    EMR Australia is a supplier of Solargard window films and we have selected the products with the greatest shielding effectiveness for you.
