Controlled environment technology known as Cleanrooms is essential for development and research involving all types of chemicals and medicines.
It is vital to build the appropriate structure bases on the application. Modular Cleanrooms has been an industry expert in cleanroom designs in across the country for years now. Cleanroom designs are built to each companies direct specifications to meet any building capabilities.
It’s important when building a cleanroom and a softwall to work with an expert who knows how to set one of these rooms up for optimal design and usage.
Our first step is to identify the proper materials for your specific project and industry. Each piece of the cleanroom is selected based on the room’s use and what will be in there. The walls inside the cleanroom become the barriers to keep your cleanroom from becoming contaminated.
What’s the difference between a hardwall and softwall cleanroom?
- Features: portable enclosure in any size
- Material: flexible, vinyl curtains
- Purpose: allows coverage for safety to contain dust and sound
- Hard to clean
- Static pressure is lower
- Features: stable, secure
- Material: prefabricated, demountable wall systems
- Purpose: offers the highest level of control, keeping airborne contaminants out of the room
- Easy to clean
If you need a controlled, enclosed environment for a clean zone, then you need a softwall cleanroom. This system uses a flexible vinyl curtain that becomes the softwall structure. This form of a cleanroom is designed to provide an enclosed portable frame system or improve laminar flow areas above workspaces.
By moving to a Softwall cleanroom, you would do this to provide dust, sound, and safety controls. This type of cleanroom comes in just about any size and a variety of International Organization for Standardization (ISO) cleanliness classifications specifications. Softwalls are a great choice when it comes to the need for fast construction and expansion.
Softwalls are not suited for chemicals
A hardwall cleanroom can hold higher levels of pressure than by going with the softwall option used to prevent particulate intrusion.
The type of room will completely enclose an area and allow for vents to exhaust fans. If you’re looking for humidity, temperature, and positive/negative pressure control, then you will need to use a hardwall cleanroom for your application.
Cleanroom ISO classifications include cleanliness by:
- Energy efficiency
- Particle concentration
- Biocontamination control
- Chemical concentration
When it comes to your budget, it’s essential to know what materials you will be used to facilitate the task at hand and reach your end goals.
Understanding your cleanroom’s needs will help you determine which material will be needed to construct your very own cleanroom.
