The parameters of the FCC-hh ring impose serious requirements on the beam extraction septa, which are very difficult to realize with the technology of the LHC. A device using a superconducting shield to create a field-free region within a strong (3-4 Tesla) magnet was proposed one year ago as a possible solution. The construction of 3 prototypes using different superconducting materials and technologies has been launched since. Optimized design of a realistic device and experimental results with the first prototype(s) will be presented.
