Why 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 a variety of materials. Modular panels should be capable 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 type of cleanroom. 

Waste Reduction

Often the company throws away batches of products due to contamination arising from facility components. Such waste is bound to negatively impact the the manufacturer, resulting in a loss of money, clients, and the potential to grow and expand their business. Modular Prefabricated Smooth Panels are extremely valuable to various manufacturing applications. They can turn the potential losses into profits by eliminating contamination sources. The smooth antimicrobial faced panel allows systems to eliminate contaminants which might compromise the quality of the products.

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 contamination. In addition, cleanroom panels are made from a specific material that does not shed fibers and does not provide contamination itself, unlike traditional cleanrooms. This benefit allows for effortless maintenance and cleaning. 

Minimizing harmful contaminants provides sterility required for the equipment, so it doesn’t wear out, break down or contaminate other products during the manufacturing. Cutbacks in repairs, quality interference, and wastage result in cost reductions for the company. 


Modular panels offer design flexibility, allowing for customization and adaptability depending on the client’s requirements. One can configure the panels so that they can be combined to create various building layouts and designs.

You can design the room in a way that the 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.

3D Modeling Available of Cleanroom Design

Modular cleanrooms are extremely easy to put together because of the pre-fabricated modular panels. Unlike traditional cleanrooms, modular panels provide more sterile construction through its 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, ultimately saving time. It also provides easy access for servicing or repairing the strategically placed equipment, saving the company money. Additionally, the damaged panel can be easily removed or replaced with a new one without extensive repair work. 

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, a facility with Class 1-4 ISO classification would benefit from a HardWall type cleanroom, which typically uses melamine. On the other hand, a Class 5-9 facility might profit from a SoftWall or RigidWall cleanroom, which uses vinyl or acrylic panels.

The material you chose will determine the look and feel of your cleanroom. However, all 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, reducing 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.

Speed and Efficiency

Prefabricated panels are manufactured in a controlled factory environment while site preparations are underway. This parallel process reduces construction time significantly. Once the panels are ready, they can be quickly assembled on-site, saving time and minimizing disruptions.

Since the majority of construction activities occur off-site in a factory, there is minimal disruption to the surrounding area. This is particularly beneficial in urban environments where noise, dust, and traffic disturbances can be a concern. Prefabricated construction helps minimize these issues, making it a preferred choice for projects in densely populated areas.

Consistent Quality & Sustainablity

Prefabricated panels are built in a factory setting where quality control measures can be strictly implemented. The use of standardized production techniques ensures consistency in dimensions, structural integrity, and finishes. This results in a higher level of quality compared to on-site construction, where human error and environmental factors can lead to inconsistencies.

Prefabricated construction promotes sustainable practices. The controlled factory environment minimizes waste generation and allows for efficient use of resources. Additionally, the modular nature of the panels allows for easy disassembly and reassembly, promoting reusability and reducing material waste. Moreover, energy-efficient features can be integrated into the panels, enhancing the overall sustainability of the building.

Overall, modular prefabricated panels offer numerous benefits, including faster construction, cost savings, consistent quality, design flexibility, sustainability, improved safety, and reduced site disruption. These advantages have made prefabrication an increasingly popular construction method, and an ideal investment in various sectors.
