Protect Your Identity With Strong’s Protective RFID Shield

Strong Leather, a leading leather goods manufacturer since 1932, has a new line of RFID shielding leather badge cases, wallets, credit card sleeves and ID holders to hang around the neck that protect against unauthorized RF scanning of personal and departmental information.

Many credit and smart card ID’s have RFID chips embedded in them that contain your personal and departmental information. Our RFID signal blocking lining is approved by the Federal Government (FIPS 201) to block RFID transmissions and help prevent identity theftStrong Leather’s security barrier prevents RF detection at 13.56MHz and in the 860-980MHz ranges. This patent pending material limits the flow of RF energy between the reader and the smart card.
