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.
