New Budapest Building Shields Residents from Electrosmog

Hungary's first building to protect its residents from
electrosmog and radon gas was completed in November 2006.
Residents report feeling more relaxed and better rested than
they did in their previous homes.

Electrosmog is caused by everyday electronic devices such
as radios, television sets, computer monitors and microwave
ovens. The invisible electromagnetic field emanating from
these and similar devices is known to increase the chance of
developing health problems. Radon is a radioactive gas
released from soil and rock under buildings, and is known to
increase the risk of lung cancer.

The building on Berzenczei utca 39-41 in Budapest's
District IX, was designed and constructed by Quadrat Kft. The
company used a system developed in-house known as the "Quadrat
System" to protect residents in the 34 apartments from
harmful radiation. The company has submitted the technology to
the Hungarian Patent Office.

Residents of the Quadrat building are protected from the
negative effects of electrosmog by cables, walls, wallpapers
and paint that shield them from radiation. The walls of the
building also block external radiation caused by
transmission sites, for example and various automatic devices were
built into the apartment floors to provide further
protection. One of these devices cuts off unnecessary power in
bedrooms after everyone has gone to bed, said Ferenc Zettisch,
head engineer of Quadrat Kft.

Flats protected by Quadrat's system cost two to four per
cent more per square meter than regular flats. 蓈a Sz閗ely
Varjasn? managing director of the company, said that
prospective buyers were informed about the special qualities of
the building before they purchased their homes. "We have
performed initial tests, and they have shown that radiation is
considerably lower in these apartments. The Quadrat System
is working well, and some residents have said they sleep
better than earlier," she added. Residents have also
volunteered to undergo medical tests to monitor their health.
