Cleanroom Design & Construction.

If you’re seeking additional floor space in your factory or warehouse but need to adhere to strict guidelines due to your industry, turn to Heighton Mezzanines. We specialise in cleanroom fabrication and installations across Melbourne. By consulting with our expert clean room designers, you can tailor a solution to your specific requirements.

What is a cleanroom?

There are some industries that require a controlled environment in order to manufacture products, such as electronics, pharmaceuticals, and medical equipment. By creating a cleanroom in your factory or warehouse, dust, airborne particles and other microbes won’t interfere with the products being made. If you need extra space to work, invest in a mezzanine floor that can double as a cleanroom.

What is a cleanroom?

A cleanroom is an environment in which the airflow, temperature, humidity, electricity, and other such factors are controlled. To maintain these conditions and standards, the cleanroom is regularly tested. Cleanrooms are carefully constructed and designed by professionals, with the right equipment and materials to ensure hygiene, safety, and efficiency. Many different industries utilise cleanrooms whether for manufacturing, or other purposes to reduce contamination. 

So why do I need a cleanroom?

There are a range of industries that need to use cleanrooms in order to ensure product quality and safety, as they minimise contamination in various processes such as manufacturing. 

What type of cleanroom do I need?

This depends on what you need the cleanroom for and the industry standards you need to follow. Contact the team at Heighton Mezzanines, and we can help you in choosing the right cleanroom design for your requirements. 

Which way should cleanroom doors swing?

Generally, cleanroom doors should open into the room with higher pressure, unless you choose power-assisted doors. 

What are the sources of contamination in a cleanroom?

Cleanrooms cannot completely eliminate contamination, they can only control it. The main contaminants in a cleanroom are airborne particles and microbes. 

So what makes a clean room a “clean room”?

The main elements that make a cleanroom are:

  • Internal surfaces 

Surfaces must not create sources of contamination, for example, causing dust, flaking, peeling, or corroding. They must be easily cleanable, without any ledges or crevices. Internal surfaces must also be strong and robust, so they won’t crack, crease, break, or dent. 

  • Quality of air, and control throughout the cleanroom 

Cleanrooms require a high amount of air, which is at controlled humidity and temperature. An efficient cleanroom design will circulate fresh air, and recirculate in a way that airborne particles are flushed from the room. 

  • How it is operated

There are strict guidelines around maintaining the standards of a cleanroom which include: reducing potential contamination, limiting access to trained staff, regular cleaning following procedures, maintenance, and monitoring of airflows, filters, and recertification. 

What is the difference between a lab and a cleanroom?

A lab is an environment where scientific experimentation, research, and manufacturing occurs. This is different from a cleanroom as there is nothing in a laboratory that is controlled, or minimises the likelihood of contamination. 

Why do you need a cleanroom instead of just a lab?

A cleanroom will ensure manufacturing or any other processes conducted there are hygienic and safe for both the employees who work there and the end-user of the products. 

What is the difference between a cleanroom & a containment facility?

Containment facilities are a space where materials are stored and intended to remain there. They do not move to the general environment from their spot. These facilities are used to control live viruses and bacteria, as well as other sensitive materials. A cleanroom may be a containment facility but will have additional controls that restrict the movement and handling of its contents. 

Which industries need cleanrooms?

There are numerous industries that require cleanrooms such as:

  • Sterile processing 
  • Packaging 
  • Laboratories 
  • Pharmaceuticals 
  • Medical devices 
  • Distribution warehouses 
  • Food manufacturing 
  • Biosecurity/biocontainment 
  • Animal facilities 

How do you design a cleanroom?

We recommend consulting with a professional when designing your cleanroom, as they have experience in creating cleanroom designs that strictly follow the industry standards, regulations, and construction techniques.
