Negative pressure cleanrooms are often associated with the medical industry, and for a good reason. The importance of isolating contaminated air with negative pressure rooms or expelling contaminated air with positive pressure modular rooms is paramount to preventing the spread of airborne illness.

Advantages of Modular Cleanrooms

  • Versatility

    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.

  • Code Compliant

    Much like new construction, modular and prefabricated cleanroom solutions are also subject to local, state, and national construction codes and permits. These cleanrooms are professionally engineered with 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 make cleanrooms an economical choice. In the past, modular construction had a seven-year depreciation. Under the Section 179 deduction, they are now 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 takes 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 to offer you the best available warehouse design, consultation, and installation services for your pressure-controlled modular rooms. With over 25 years of industry experience, our team consists of experts in warehouse design and installation. They will work with you to develop and build the modular office right for you.

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 also come across positive pressure rooms. 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 modular rooms go beyond the medical field.
