Choosing Cleanroom Doors
High-speed doors play a key role in maintaining clean operations in pharmaceutical plants. They are designed to address facility needs for environmental control, productivity and safety (as well as cleanliness). In cleanroom applications, they are used to maintain correct room pressures, air circulation rates and optimal operating efficiency and to prevent cross-contamination. High operating speeds are critical to minimize air filtration when staff members enter or exit.
Cleanroom doors should be cGMP and FDA compliant, highly durable and easy to clean. Specifically, they must be able to stand up to repeated cleaning with chemical solvents and have a smooth, hard, non-porous surface resistant to microbial and fungal growth. In order to do this, door materials should be corrosion-resistant and use side frames and shrouds constructed from stainless steel.
