The Significance of Modular Prefabricated Panels

A vital part of any cleanroom is its walls. Modular cleanrooms are built using modular prefabricated panels which can be manufactured from variety of materials. Modular panels should be cable of controlling pressure, humidity, and temperature, which allows you to control the contamination level in the cleanroom. No matter the size or complexity, any industry would benefit from cleanroom modular panels. Many things could compromise the controlled environment, like equipment, products, and even people. Here are the benefits of modular panels for any cleanrooms. 

Waste Reduction

Often the company throws away batches of products due to contamination resulted from facility components. Such wastage affects the manufacturing so that they lose money, lose clients, and are unable to grow and expand their business. Cleanroom modular prefabricated smooth panels are extremely valuable to various manufacturing applications. They can turn the potential losses into profits by eliminating contamination generation sources. The smooth antimicrobial faced panel allows systems to eliminate daily contaminants which might ruin the products or compromise their quality.

Moreover, cleanroom equipment is relatively expensive and might become even more so if not stored in necessary conditions. Cleanroom panels provide a controlled environment that surrounds the machines assuring no contaminations. Minimizing harmful contaminants provides sterility required for the equipment, so it doesn’t wear out, break down or contaminate products during the manufacturing. Cutbacks in repairs, quality interference, and wastage result in cost reductions for the company. 

Flexibility

Modular cleanrooms are fully customizable depending on the client’s requirements. One can arrange the panels so that they fit perfectly no matter the size of your facility. You can design the room in a way that modular wall panels come with door placements, cut-outs, HVAC systems, openings for equipment or lights. You can also design it so the modular panels are built into an existing structure and/or around mounted equipment. Modular cleanrooms are extremely easy to put together because of the pre-fabricated modular panels. Unlike traditional cleanrooms, modular panels provide more sterile construction by using smooth surface. Aluminum profiles and uniform joints make it easy to install, reconfigure, upgrade, or expand the cleanroom with little to no downtime. The flexibility allows the operators to transform the working space without interrupting the processes, saving time. It also provides easy access for servicing or repairs of the strategically placed equipment, saving the company money. Besides, the damaged panel can be easily removed or replaced with a new one without extensive repair work. 

In addition, cleanroom panels are made from a specific material that does not shed fibers and does not provide the contamination on its own like the traditional cleanrooms. This benefit allows for effortless maintenance and cleaning, saving the company time and money. There are certain different materials you can choose from when designing your cleanroom. Depending on your facility and ISO classifications you can use glass/plexiglass, clear vinyl/PVC, polycarbonate, stainless steel, or melamine. For example, facility with Class 1-4 ISO classification would benefit from HardWall type cleanroom which usually uses melamine while Class 5-9 facilities might profit from SoftWall or RigidWall cleanroom which might use vinyl or acrylic panels. The material you chose will determine the look and feel of your cleanroom. However, all the offered materials will provide you with walls that do not retain or attract dirt, dust, or moisture, making your cleanroom easy to maintain.

Cost Efficiency

Modular panels will cost you much less than traditional drywall construction cleanrooms. The panels come pre-designed, pre-fabricated, and ready to be installed which reduces the onsite costs. Modular cleanrooms are also less expensive in a long run. Suppose you want to upgrade your business and add more space to your cleanroom, or maybe you changed your manufacturing process and don’t need a cleanroom anymore. In any case, it is much easier to make changes/alterations and/or  reconfigurations to a cleanroom with modular panels than a traditional method. You can order and add more panels to expand or disassemble and move or even sell your cleanroom. In comparison, to make any changes to a permanent traditional method would require you to tear down the walls or start from scratch. Modular panels are cost-effective and long-lasting solution for your always changing business needs.

Prefabricated modular panels help maintain pressure, temperature, and humidity, thus providing reliability, flexibility, waste and cost reductions, making it an ideal investment.
