When Does My Industry Need an Environmental Room?

When your specific industry needs a highly controlled space to test research methods, operate specialized machinery, or conduct sterile procedures, there are several options to consider. Between environmental rooms, cleanrooms, and modular buildings, it can be difficult to know which one is best for your Cincinnati area business. Vernick & Associates can help your specialized industry choose which type of highly controlled room will be the perfect fit. For companies who need to meet the following standards, an environmental room just may be the best possible option.

3 Basic Requirements of a Highly Controlled Cleanroom

Highly controlled environments are essential to the manufacturing process in a variety of industries. Although particular industries may require more stringent standards, there are three basic specifications that every single cleanroom must follow. The team at Vernick & Associates has been designing and building these highly controlled environments in Cleveland and the surrounding areas since 1985. While we have the expertise and know-how to create a variety of strictly monitored, immaculate workspaces, we also understand the top three basic requirements that each cleanroom should contain.

Update Your Cleanroom with Our Comprehensive 8-Step Process (Part 1)

When it’s time to update the cleanrooms in your facility, there are several factors to consider. Not only do you need to evaluate the exact specifications for the newly renovated environment, you also need to review the financial costs of the final project and any maintenance requirements of the updated space. Since 1985, the team at Vernick & Associates has been assisting numerous industries, including pharmaceuticals, health and medical, and academia, in updating their hardwall and softwall cleanrooms. Our 8-step process carefully and thoroughly reviews, investigates, designs, and presents your specific industry with a custom-built cleanroom and an environmentally controlled space.

Cleanrooms vs. Environmental Rooms: How Are They Different?

Cleanrooms and environmental rooms are designed to maintain a highly controlled environment. While an environmental room is a more relaxed version of a cleanroom, a cleanroom offers higher restrictions to drastically reduce the number of contaminants. Although the differences between the two spaces are not drastic, they are necessary to ensure your processes and products meet specific toxin-free standards. Vernick and Associates can help you make the best decision for your unique manufacturing needs.
