Softwall Cleanroom Design

Softwall cleanrooms have multiple uses due to their ability to be portable, small size, and having the capability to fit into confined or limited spaces. They can be disassembled when not needed but be reassembled to meet production needs. The practicality and adaptability of softwall cleanrooms make them ideal for small manufacturers who require controlled conditions or large manufacturers looking for a contaminant free portable environment.

While most softwall cleanrooms have hanging overlapping flexible vinyl panels that stop three inches to six inches off the floor to allow air from the filters to flow out, there are modular designs that use vinyl materials that are firmly attached to the steel frame on all four sides. They have a modular design but are not portable or movable.

There are multiple factors to consider when designing a cleanroom, which partially includes its International Organization of Standardization (ISO) classification. For example, an ISO 8 cleanroom can be entered without passing through an airlock, while an ISO 5 cleanroom requires the addition of an airlock or two. Additionally, the HVAC system has a great deal of influence on the capabilities of a softwall cleanroom.

Compenents of How a Softwall Cleanroom are Designed:

  • Supporting Frame
