|1. T-Grid Systems
||7. Cavity Walls||13. Panelized Ceiling|
|Wire or rod supported T-grid systems with a variety of tiles to meet cGMP requirements.||Electrical, mechanical and process piping can be integrated within cavity chases by using metal stud framework.||Flush cleanroom ceiling providing walk-on capabilities for maintenance access.|
|2. Liner Wall
||8. Radius Floor Coving
||14. Free-Standing Plenum Caps|
|Provides ability to skin existing concrete, block or sheet rock walls.||Radius floor track with offset panel receiver provides flush transition between floor to wall finishes.||Envelope structures create a free-standing structure capable of support AHU’s and support utilities and personnel.|
|3. Integrated Openings
||9. Integrated Stainless Steel Fittings
||15. Aseptic Cove Detailing
|Flush openings for integration of service panels, utility chase boxes, fire extinguisher boxes.||Electrical and mechanical between panels.||
Rounded snap-in cove allows easy to clean ceiling and corner transitions.
|4. Loadbearing Integration
||10. Low Wall Returns
||16. Partition Wall
|Structural members can be designed within cavity walls to support load-bearing envelope structures.||Utilizes a return air grille allowing the cleanroom floor system to be coved flush against the low wall return plenum.||½” thick uPVC coated panels finished to one or both sides of metal framework producing easy to clean surfaces.|
|5. Wall Protection
||11. Windows||17. Raised Air Wall
|Stainless steel guard rails in high traffic areas.||Glazing provides a flush, ledge-free surface.||Eliminates the need for a return air grille and provides a more cleanable detail, reducing the number of crevices in room.|
|6. Sliding Door||12. Swing Doors|
|High strength 2” thick molded seamless lightweight fiberglass panel for easy cleaning.||Sealed non-absorptive panels with lightweight poured polyurethane foam for exceptional strength and dimensional stability.|
