A shield assembly to shield the magnetic read/write heads of a disk file from stray flux comprises a stack of mumetal shields moulded into a plastic holder. During the moulding process the shields are clamped by their edges and a tongue of plastic is formed over the base of each shield. These tongues stiffen the shields against out of plane movements which could damage the disks.
