Radiant Barriers, SCIF, SCI, and Architects
This entry was posted on August 6, 2010.
What is SCI? SCI is an acronym that stands for Sensitive Compartmented Information. This is any information or materials that are deemed sensitive, usually by government agencies such as the Department of Defense or the CIA. Special controls have been developed that restrict the handling of such information.
SCIF stands for Sensitive Compartmented Information Facilities. These are secure rooms or data centers that restrict and inhibit electronic surveillance and suppress data leakage. SCIF's are any accredited areas, rooms, buildings, or installations where SCI materials may be processed, discussed, or stored. SCIF projects are subject to government approval and architects are generally always involved.
How does this pertain to radiant barriers? Certain radiant barrier products have been used successfully along with other materials in the development of these rooms. Their specific use is for RF frequency shielding and sound attenuation, which reduces the intensity of sound pressure transmitted from one point to another.
At InsulationStop.com, we carry a SCIF approved radiant barrier product. If you are an architect and require this for one of your projects, please contact us. We would love to work with you on your next project.
