Hardwall Cleanrooms — Select transparent acrylic*, dissipative PVC, polycarbonate, or polypropylene panels, which mount either externally or internally to create smooth, easy-clean surfaces. All-steel support frame for strength and easy installation - requires no external bracing.

*Acrylic is damaged by alcohol and other cleaning agents.

Softwall Cleanrooms — Many panel options, including anti-static vinyl and clear or frosted strip shields. All-steel supports available with casters.

The most effective design for bio-tech and pharmaceutical applications.

304/316 stainless or powder-coated steel construction resists most solvents, disinfectants and other cleaning solutions. Radius corners and raised, drained flooring available for disinfectant wash-down. Configure as a positive- or negative-pressure room, with A/C and humidity control.

Double-Wall, Raised-floor Plastic Cleanrooms

Ventilation Cleanroom

Double-Wall, Raised-floor Plastic Clean Rooms Double-Wall, Raised-floor Plastic Clean Rooms Ventilation Room Ventilation Room
Ideal for applications that require raised flooring for true laminar flow. Double-wall structure allows air to circulate through the inter-wall plenum, increasing filtration and A/C efficiency. Ideal for safe removal of fine powders or chemical vapors. Adjustable ceiling ventilator draws air upward through HEPA filters and/or exhaust ductwork. Inlet filters ensure a clean working environment. Available for plastic or all-steel cleanrooms.

Powder-Containment Cleanroom

Negative-Pressure Cleanrooms

Powder-Containment Clean Room Powder-Containment Clean Room Powder-Containment Clean Room Powder-Containment Clean Room
Air recirculation zone draws powders away from work station into a dual HEPA filtration system that protects both product and personnel. Adjustable air handler creates overall negative pressure to protect the external environment. Ceiling fan/filter units create laminar flow of particle-free air. Exhaust ductwork along the floor and adjustable air handlers create overall negative pressure to protect external environment from pharmaceutical powders and biohazards.
