If you want a fully bespoke cleanroom design tailored to your needs and requirements, consider what we offer at Ezad Cleanrooms. We have many years of experience in the industry, and in that time, we have perfected the design and manufacturing of our hard wall and soft wall cleanroom solutions.
In our capacity as one of the leading cleanroom and laboratory manufacturers and installation companies in the United States. We have comprehensive experience, skilled and fully qualified teams of specialists, and cutting-edge resources, tools, and equipment to provide you with safe and customizable cleanrooms for laboratory needs.
When it comes to the manufacturing and installation of cleanrooms, the design stage of the process is one of the essential parts. If you struggle to decide on the right cleanroom design for your needs, we have tried to make it easy here at Ezad Cleanrooms. We offer two very distinctive but similar cleanroom designs.
Hard wall Modular Cleanrooms
Hard wall cleanrooms are more permanent laboratory solutions that consist of panels mounted onto a robust coated steel frame. The modular design means that they can be customized to fit your own specific needs and requirements. Due to their hard wall and permanent structure, they are better suited to more intensive applications.
Soft wall Modular Cleanrooms
Soft wall cleanrooms are a more temporary laboratory solution. As they are smaller, they are more compact and portable, which makes them ideal for smaller lab setups. The modular design means that they can be customized to fit your own specific needs and requirements.
When investing in cleanrooms for your business or organization, you must understand the different classifications. Cleanrooms are given classifications based on the level of cleanliness they comply with, determined by the size and quantity of particles present in each cubic meter of air.
This specification requires less than 2 particles greater than 0.3 microns and no particles greater than 1.0 microns for every cubic meter of air. Normally, ISO 1 cleanrooms will have 500 to 750 changes of air per hour and use ULPA filtration.
For a cleanroom to have an ISO 2 classification, it may have less than 11 particles that are greater in size than 0.3 microns and no particles at all that are greater in size than 1.0 microns for every cubic meter of air. ISO 2 classification cleanrooms usually have 500 to 750 changes in the air and also use ULPA filtration.
Cleanrooms with an ISO 3 classification need less than 102 particles greater than 0.3 microns and no particles greater than 1.0 microns for every cubic meter of air. Like the other setups, ISO 3 classification cleanrooms normally have 500 to 750 air changes every hour and use the special ULPA filtration system.
For cleanrooms to qualify for an ISO 4 classification, they need to have less than 1020 particles that are greater in size than 0.3 microns and 2 particles or less that are greater in size than 5.0 microns for every cubic meter of air. These tend to have 500 to 600 air changes and use the ULPA filtration system.
Cleanrooms that qualify for the ISO 5 classification are considered super clean and must have less than 3,520 particles that are greater in size than 0.5 microns for every cubic meter of air. They use HEPA filters and undergo 250 to 300 air changes every hour.
Cleanrooms awarded the ISO 6 classification are considered very clean. They need to have less than 35,200 particles that are greater in size than 0.5 microns for every cubic meter of air. They must also have 180 air changes and rely on the HEPA filtration system.
Cleanrooms with the ISO 7 classification are considered common clean and must have less than 352,000 particles greater than 0.5 microns for every cubic meter of air. They need 60 changes of air every hour and use the HEPA filtration system.
Cleanrooms with the ISO 8 classification are considered the least clean type. They only need to have less than 35,200,000 particles that are greater in size than 0.5 microns for every cubic meter of air. They also have 20 air changes every hour and use the HEPA filtration system.
There is a wide range of different applications for cleanroom setups in various industries. Some of the most common are highlighted below.
Medical Device Manufacture
Modular cleanroom design and performance are crucial in the quality and efficiency of modern medical device manufacturing. These cleanrooms can be designed to control microorganisms and airborne particles. These industries usually requires ISO-7 cleanliness class.
Biotech/Cell and Gene
Medicine is evolving quickly through the use of cutting-edge therapies. Modern biotech companies require quicker lead times and more strictly controlled environments to develop their medicines. This is where cleanrooms come in.
Modular cleanrooms are an ideal solution for industrial applications such as Aerospace, Optical , composite materials. Cleanroom for Aerospace and Optical applications usually are in ISO class 5 to 7. For other general industial applications ISO class 7 to 8 requirements to be met.
Semiconductors and Microelectronics
As the products involved in semiconductor and microelectronic manufacturing require strict environmental controls, cleanroom facilities are ideal for this application. These industries usually requires ISO 5 cleanliness class.
Sterile Compounds (NAPRA, USP-800, USP-797, GMP)
Modular cleanrooms are an ideal solution for pharmaceutical manufacturing companies that are involved in creating sterile compounds. These industries usually requires ISO 5 to 7 cleanliness class. and sterile componding needs ISO class 5.
As is the case with other biotechnology or pharmaceutical manufacturing environment, the production of vaccinations requires fully dedicated cleanroom areas. The cleanroom grade for these vaccine activities is usually IOS 5 to 7.
