Abstract

A shielding skirt for a processor frame is formed by extruding a conductive plastic in an accordion fold shape. The upper edge is adapted to be attached to the lower surface of a processor frame and the lower edge is formed into a curved surface that rests on the floor that supports the processor. The shield is installed in the factory, temporarily supported in a collapsed position where it does not interfere with moving the processor, and then extended to fill the space between the processor frame and the floor.

Electromagnetic Shield for Space between Process and Raised Floor Extruded from Conductive Plastic Having Collapsible Accordion Folds Giving Louvered Appearance

A shielding skirt for a processor frame is formed by extruding a conductive plastic in an accordion fold shape. The upper edge is adapted to be attached to the lower surface of a processor frame and the lower edge is formed into a curved surface that rests on the floor that supports the processor. The shield is installed in the factory, temporarily supported in a collapsed position where it does not interfere with moving the processor, and then extended to fill the space between the processor frame and the floor.

The drawings show section views of a processor frame member 2, the extruded skirt 3, an optional hole 4 and different structures for attaching the skirt to the frame member. In Fig. 1 the skirt has a rigid part 5 that is screwed to frame member 2. The rest of the skirt is of soft plastic. In Fig. 2 the entire skirt is of soft plastic, and a gasket 6 is snapped into a frame part 7. In Fig. 3 the skirt has a rigid part 8 that attaches to a frame part. 9.
