Unclassified cleanrooms (or clean not classified cleanrooms) are used in the pharmaceutical, food and specialist manufacturing industries that require a clean space to prevent contamination from dust or other external pollutants or exercise control over humidity and temperature. However, they don’t need to reach the minimum EU GMP Class D or ISO 9 standards for classification.
The requirements of these controlled environments are similar to that for a cleanroom, it’s simply that the standards are not as rigorous and the clean room will not be audited.
They still require a level of control over the environment inside the room which can include:
- Temperature control using insulated panels
- Pressurisation to ensure contaminated air doesn’t enter
- Separation from any potential areas which are not of cleanroom standard
- Humidity to prevent bacteria growth, water absorption, static or metal corrosion
There are many circumstances in which a cleanroom will be clean but not classified. This controlled environment could be a separate manufacturing or packing area that is kept clean, free from odour, dust and other potential contaminants.
We can help you to design and plan your unclassified cleanroom, as well as installing a bespoke solution which could save you significant costs when compared to a classified cleanroom.
Depending on your requirements, we can install cleanroom panels that are finished with an antibacterial or food-safe finish, and include polyester, PET, uPVC, stainless steel, aluminium powder coat and galvanised steel.
Our unclassified cleanroom installation can also include fire-rated panels, as well as doors and windows that meet unclassified cleanroom requirements.
