The very first thing that will give you an additional shield is the opportunity to make a protective ground in the apartment. True, at the same time, sockets and lamps must have special contacts, and they will have to conduct another wire from the shield. In an ideal case, this is done when repairing the apartment and the wiring is hidden.
