What is an Airborne Infection Isolation Room?
Also known as negative pressure isolation rooms, airborne infection isolation rooms (AIIR) are used by patients for hospitals and medical centers to prevent cross-contaminations and airborne infections from spreading throughout the facility.
These rooms are commonly recommended by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to help protect the public from diseases and infections that spread easily like tuberculosis, measles, and the coronavirus (COVID-19).
- Central or point-of-use HEPA filters capable of removing particles 0.3 μm in diameter for supply (incoming) air
- Well-sealed rooms
- - Proper construction of windows, doors, and intake and exhaust ports
- - Smooth, cleanable ceiling tiles
- - Walls sealed above and below the ceiling
- Ventilation to maintain ≥12 ACH
- Directed air flow: design that filters air into one side of room, across patient’s bed and then exits on opposite side of room
- Self-closing door on all room exits
- Back-up ventilation equipment

PortaFab’s F2000 gasketed wall system is ideal for creating tightly sealed space while still featuring a non-progressive design that allows walls to be relocated without the need to remove adjacent panels, framing studs or ceiling panels.
- The F2000 system can be outfitted with durable, aluminum-faced wall panels.
- Maximum Height: 12’
Our Series 300 wall system features an anodized aluminum stud construction that provides the quality, appearance and cost savings that make conventional construction obsolete. The non-progressive, post-and-panel design provides maximum versatility and relocatability.
- The Series 300 system can be outfitted with our Aluminum-Faced, Class A, Fire & Sound panels for added performance in healthcare applications.
- Maximum Height: 17’
Integrated Isolation Room Components
PortaFab’s systems utilize aluminum-faced, class A wall panels that are easy-to-clean, non-combustible and provide excellent sound control.
PortaFab’s heavy duty wall systems can accommodate a wide variety of heavy-duty, hospital-grade doors including anti-microbial, stainless steel doors, impact doors and sliding doors for sealing off entire areas.
Multiple window units can be seamlessly integrated into isolation walls including our flush and beveled windows that allow for easy cleaning by eliminating hard-to-clean edges that collect, particles and more.
Radius coving is used to create fully flush corner transitions and seamless wall-to-ceiling and wall-to-floor connections. By eliminating corners, the radius coving system allows for total "cleanability." Wall-to-wall and wall-to-ceiling junctions can be trimmed with an extruded coving that features a large 3" radius.
HEPA Filter Units
Rooms can be outfitted with ceiling-mounted fan filter units that are integrated into existing mechanical systems, wall mounted systems or even portable systems like Envirco's Hospi-Gard™ IsoClean™ system shown here.
Gasketed Ceiling Grid System
PortaFab wall systems integrate seamlessly with our gasketed, heavy-duty ceiling grid that can support fan filter units, diffusers and light fixtures. The ceiling system creates an air-tight barrier between the space and ceiling plenum to prevent transmission of contaminants into the room.
