Hardwall cleanrooms offer the stability, privacy, and flexibility called for in many industries. Designed to keep airborne contaminants out of an enclosed area with air circulation systems, Vernick’s specialized modular hardwall cleanrooms provide custom designs to meet your specifications.
Why Choose a Hardwall Cleanroom?
Hardwall cleanrooms are an excellent choice when you want the privacy and function of a standard room with the capacity to control the environment. Our prefabricated hardwall modular cleanrooms are entirely enclosed and equipped with their own air-handling systems to provide filtered air.
Hardwall Cleanrooms Offer Maximum Control
A hardwall cleanroom provides the highest level of control, particularly when built with a recirculating air system rather than a single-pass system that does not re-use the filtered air. The rigid walls allow users to restrict access to the controlled environment through a designated entryway. Depending on your requirements and existing air handling systems, we can recommend cleanroom components that will best help you control your environmental room.
Flexible Hardwall Cleanroom Constructions
Needs change over time, and hardwall cleanrooms come with the capacity to be moved or changed to match your growing industrial capabilities. Vernick builds each of our custom hardwall cleanrooms with prefabricated and demountable wall systems that follow your exact specifications. We can return at any time to modify your hardwall cleanroom based on your current needs.
Hardwall Cleanrooms Versus Softwall Cleanrooms
We often hear from customers struggling to decide if a hardwall or softwall cleanroom is the best fit for their application. While both are prefabricated cleanroom constructions that can control cleanliness and prevent contamination through air filtration systems, there are important differences between softwall and hardwall cleanrooms:
- Many customers become interested in softwall cleanrooms due to the lower up-front cost and lower cost of operation. However, as hardwall cleanrooms last longer and perform better, they save you money in the long run and can be built to operate at a lower price point depending on your application.
- While softwall cleanrooms keep out dust and organize an area, their flexible vinyl curtain “walls” do not control the area as well as hardwall constructions. Softwall cleanrooms work best as a component inside a hardwall cleanroom to organize the modular space.
- While both softwall cleanrooms and hardwall cleanrooms create an enclosed space, it is much harder to control entry into a softwall cleanroom. Hardwall cleanrooms, meanwhile, are fully enclosed with ventilation systems in place within solid walls, creating an ideal setting for sensitive procedures.
Custom Hardwall Cleanroom Air Filtration Options
When meeting strict ISO standards is a concern for your cleanroom construction, effective air filtration is a top priority. We construct and build custom hardwall cleanrooms that use either a recirculating or once-through design. While recirculating air circulation is a popular choice, once-through offers cooling capacities and can be integrated into your existing air circulation system, saving you costs on HVAC installation and achieving your desired cleanliness level.
