Negative Pressure Cleanrooms
Negative pressure cleanrooms are often associated with the medical industry, and for good reason. The importance of isolating contaminated air with negative pressure rooms or expelling contaminated air with positive pressure modular rooms is paramount to the preventing spread of airborn illness. In the time of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, you may be looking for a solution that effectively neutralizes and isolates contaminated air. The experts at AK Material Handling Systems will work with you and our vendors to find you the right solution in a short amount of time to make your workspace safe. There are many advantages and uses for the negative pressure rooms or modular offices that go beyond the medical field.

Negative Pressure vs Positive Pressure
Negative pressure rooms are designed to contain airborne pollutants or contaminants, such as viruses, within that particular space. In these rooms, air pressure is lowered below that of adjacent rooms and areas. This tactic keeps air from escaping the room, thus securing the rest of the surroundings.
In your search, you may have come across positive pressure rooms as well. What is a positive pressure room? This particular room has higher air pressure than surrounding rooms to filter air out, but not let it back in.
The primary use for these is for emergency medical services, but these types of modular rooms go beyond the medical field.

Advantages of Modular Cleanrooms
These modular structures offer many advantages. Some advantages include:
Modular offices and cleanrooms can be retrofitted to meet your needs before and after their primary purpose. These prefabricated structures can be temporary, permanent, moved, or expanded. These structures can also be assembled and installed in a fraction of the time of regular construction.
Much like new construction, modular and prefabricated cleanroom solutions are also subject to local, state, and national construction codes and permits. These solutions often feature professionally engineered-stamped drawings to meet those guidelines. This particular process is something that the Design Team at AK Material Handling Systems deals with regularly and can help expedite this process.
Tax and Financial Advantages
While also being less expensive than permanent construction, the tax benefits also make cleanrooms an economical choice. In the past, modular construction was set at a seven-year depreciation. Now, under the Section 179 deduction, they are eligible for a 100% tax write-off.
Clean Design, Clean Building
As we mentioned, modular cleanrooms are prefabricated, meaning the pre-made parts will just have to be assembled by an installation team. You won’t have to deal with the hassle of a dusty, dirty, and busy workspace while the assembly is taking place. These rooms are constructed with the environment in mind, meaning they will be up to industry standards.
At AK Material Handling Systems, we have the expertise and experience under our belts to offer you the best available design, consultation and installation services when it comes to your pressure-controlled modular rooms. With over 25 years of industry experience, our team is made up of experts in warehouse design and installation and will work with you to develop and build the modular office that’s right for you.
