Cleanroom garments are an essential component of any controlled environment, as they help to protect both the product and the individual wearing them from contamination. ISO-rated cleanroom garments are a specific type of protective clothing that meet the standards set forth by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO).
Where do most cleanroom contaminants come from? Simple: the cleanroom staff brings them in. With enough foot traffic, outside contaminants can easily migrate into your cleanroom — but the right safeguards will help your facility stay clean and compliant.
Welcome to Terra’s multi-part educational series on critical environments. Let's discuss selecting the right cleanroom protocols and procedures for your application.
Additionally, we’ll outline proper gowning procedures, as well as the Terra Universal equipment you’ll need to protect your room from cross-contamination.
Gowning procedures are vital to cleanroom compliance, and a poorly designed gowning room can make following protocol challenging. Several factors contribute to the layout and furnishing of a functional gowning space, most notably the cleanroom’s application and your budget. Below, we breakdown of each area within and surrounding an “ideal” gowning room.
The pre-gowning area is located directly outside of the gowning room. Personnel should be provided with a locker to store any personal items, such as clothing, jewelry, and cell phones, before entering the gowning room.
The Kinetic Butler Automatic Shoe Cover Dispenser and Bootie Butler Shoe Cover Remover System offers the perfect alternative to the manual application and removal of shoe covers within a work environment. In a single motion, the Kinetic Butler automatically places a shoe cover over each shoe with hands-free convenience. The Bootie Butler automatically removes used shoe covers in a matter of seconds, saving time and keeping workers safe from any contaminants.
Both systems work perfectly together and are ideal for cleanroom environments and facilities that require a high level of cleanliness. Working together, both systems help increase productivity
