Advantages of modular construction over conventional ones for pharmaceutical clean rooms

The ISO 14644-1 standard defines a clean room as a room which is constructed and used to control the concentration of particles in the air.  


When building a clean room, the first decision you face is whether to choose a traditional (citizen's) structure over a modular panel. There are some important considerations to keep in mind before making this expensive investment.


Build speed

Speed ​​to market is important for manufacturers, and it takes a considerable amount of time to build a fixed structure. Supply chain challenges and weather conditions can lead to endless delays.  The panel is designed with flexibility in mind. Being prefabricated, construction time is reduced by almost half compared to traditional structures.



Cleanroom Certification makes sure that builder follow all the norms during process of building. It cannot be moved elsewhere. Disturbances are also noisy and destructive, causing dust pollution. Modular panels, on the other hand, provide a cleaner structure. The panels are interconnected with an extruded aluminium profile for uniform bonding and robustness. It has Easy installation, assembly, upgrade, expansion, or reconfiguration with minimal downtime and interruption. It has Individual panels that allow machine entry or maintenance without affecting larger structures, which was not possible with conventional structures.


In the construction of clean rooms, you should consider installing equipment such as air handling units, HEPA boxes/diffusers, and electrical connections, including pre-wired plugs and lights. During operation, it should be easily accessible for maintenance and service. The modular, walk able ceiling structure eliminates the need to build mezzanines, fixed structures that get in the way and require more investment. The walk able ceiling eliminates the need for maintenance personnel to enter the clean room, reducing the risk of contamination.



The modular panel is insulated with flame-retardant rock wool, which gives a clear edge to the cement walls used in traditional construction.


Cleanroom integrity

Cleanroom Testing And Certification confirm about safety during the use of Cleanroom. They act as a barrier to external/uncontrolled environments, protect the integrity of clean rooms, and provide a complete replacement for traditional construction.


Cost advantage

Investment spending on traditional construction is much higher, as is the time required to recover costs.  Modular panels are thinner than concrete walls, providing a more user-friendly area. Unlike traditional fixed structures, it is reusable, eliminating the need for new materials and minimizing labour and refurbishment costs. You can also sell it when you no longer need it, so you can benefit from accelerated depreciation and potential tax savings.


Easy cleaning

Cleaning is one of the most important processes, as hygiene is the key to a controlled environment. The modular construction provides compatibility with the rigorous and aggressive cleaning methods required for clean rooms and is superior to traditional construction.


Unlike concrete walls, which exude pollutants and particles, modular panels do not come off, leaving less room for air pollution.


Consistent quality

Unlike traditional concrete structures, modular panels are designed and manufactured in a controlled factory environment. This guarantees consistent, high-quality products with no variation and guarantees the look and performance of today and tomorrow.
