How to choose Cleanroom Walls

When creating a controlled cleanroom environment, it's important to consider every part of the construction carefully, including the walls, ceilings and floors. Cleanroom walls must be able to keep out contaminants, such as airborne particles, as well as allowing you to create an environment where the air flow, temperature and humidity are controlled.

Modular Cleanroom Walls
Modular cleanrooms are made up of prefabricated components, including walls and doors. The main advantage of modular cleanrooms is that they are quick and easy to construct, compared to cleanrooms constructed using standard building methods.

Cleanroom Wall Panels
Cleanroom walls that are made up of panels are easy to install and maintain. If a wall panel is damaged, you can simply remove and replace it, rather than carrying out extensive repair work inside your cleanroom, which could lead to contamination. Wall panels give you flexibility in designing the shape and size of your cleanroom, as they are available in a range of sizes and can be arranged in almost any configuration.

Cleanroom Wall Materials
Cleanroom walls are made from a range of materials. The surface materials used in cleanroom wall panels include melamine, painted aluminum, stainless steel, glass, polycarbonate and vinyl-coated gypsum. The material you choose determines the appearance of your cleanroom, as well as the texture of the surface. All cleanroom wall surfaces are designed to be easy to clean, so you can avoid dirt and dust contaminating your controlled environment.

The core of a modular cleanroom wall typically has a honeycomb structure. This structure allows cleanroom walls to be strong, while reducing their weight so they are easy to install and maintain. The materials used in the honeycomb structure can include aluminum, urethane or polystyrene.

If you need to conduct experiments or manufacture products in a controlled environment, a cleanroom is an essential part of your facility. When choosing walls for your cleanroom, consider how the appearance of the walls will complement the rest of your facility, as well as whether the walls can provide the strength and durability your cleanroom requires. Always work with a cleanroom specialist and be ready to invest in high-quality materials and construction for your cleanroom.
