Figure 1 Workers Installing Clean Room Walls
A clean room wall is made of steel skins or faceplates with an insulation core between the steel plates. The result is that you end up with an insulated sandwich panel ideal for various clean room applications.
Depending on the clean room wall application, the thickness will vary from 50mm to 100mm. The thickness can be customized better at the factory once the manufacturer understands the purpose of the clean room.
Are Clean Room Walls Bacteria Free?

How do Clean Room Walls Improve Air Tightness?
The air tightness of the clean room walls depends on how the walls are installed. Make sure that you use the recommended installation accessories to encourage better connection between the panels. Yes, you might have a gap, but the gap will be sealed by applying a strong sealant between the two panels.
The strong sealant will help to maintain the overall airtightness of the clean room. If the installation is done right, the clean room can maintain its cleanliness without a problem.
It is worth testing the particle counts from time to time in the clean room to ensure it stays within the desired range. If it seems that the count is higher, you may have leaks in your clean room joints. Seal them where necessary to further improve the air tightness of the clean room walls.
In case you also have a damaged clean room wall, consider repairing it in time or replacing it if the damage is too much. This will ensure you always get to enjoy using the clean room without worrying about leakages.
What is the Size of Clean Room Walls?

The rockwool sandwich panel with thickness of 100mm is the best in thermal insulation and fire resistance. This panel can offer up to 4 hours of fire resistance, unlike when using the other options. With such a performance on fire resistance, it should be ideal for cleanrooms that might need more protection.
You could still opt for a clean room wall having 130kg/m3 of rockwool and double 9mm MGO boards. This panel combines the benefits of the two core materials, making it easier to enjoy the benefits that come with it.
What are the Properties of Clean Room Walls?
If you have used clean rooms before, you know the walls can be made of different materials; however, the trend is now insulated sandwich panels. Why is this the case? Below are some of the properties you will experience when using the Zonsteel clean room walls.

How Strong is the Joint Between Two Clean Room Walls?
It is a very strong bond to ensure there are no leaks from outside the cleanroom. The manufacturer sends you the correct sealant as part of the installation accessories. The idea is to ensure you are using high-quality accessories to form a strong joint.

Figure 5 Cleaning the Clean Room Walls
The wall surface type generally depends on the use of the clean room. Let us say it is a pharmaceutical clean room environment, the walls have to stand up to a wide range of cleaning solutions. This is because you need to clean and disinfect more often to maintain the clean room integrity. Sometimes the cleaners can be aggressive, so using clean room walls with steel skin is highly encouraged as it can hold up to different cleaners with ease.
If you are working in a microelectronics or semi-conductor environment, the major concern would be how the walls can dissipate static electricity. Also, the walls should not influence the build-up of static electricity. When you talk to the team of engineers at Zonsteel, they would tell you more about the kind of clean room walls to use for the project.
Other than Financial Benefits, What are the Other Benefits of Modular Clean Room Walls?
Modular clean room walls are better in terms of speed as the first benefit. This is possible because the walls are made off-site, and only erecting them is necessary while on-site. So, it will be easier and faster to complete a project.
The other advantage is cleanliness. When using the traditional methods, you will have to set up different layers of surfaces before the wall can be clean room ready. However, the clean room walls are designed and manufactured to be ready for installation without doing any modifications.
The other advantage is that the modular clean room walls would be able to stand up to quality checks. The factory such as Zonsteel is ISO certified, which means that the company has to follow the regulator’s requirements to meet specific standards. As such, you will always have better quality with modular clean room walls than traditional methods.
What Influences the Type of Core Material Used in a Clean Room Wall Panel?
As much as cleanliness is important, those are not the only reasons for picking the core material in a clean room wall panel. The first factor is the fire rating. Consider understanding how long the clean room wall can withstand the fire in case there is an outbreak. Also, why would you want the fire contained in a certain area? That is one of the questions to keep in mind so that you can have the right clean room wall generally.
You also have to consider the insulating values of the core material. Maybe you want to maintain the clean room within a certain temperature range or humidity, thus the reason to consider the insulating values.
The best part is that Zonsteel can help you understand the differences between core materials. It is from such differences you would know which is the ideal for your clean room.

The other category is as-needed basis. This is when you have a spill or other types of dirt that have to be removed immediately. Ensure that you always have your cleaning supplies close and use them whenever necessary.
Can You Use Clean Room Walls for Ceiling Construction?
Yes. Ceiling construction for your clean room needs to have the same integrity as the walls. It is why the panels also come in handy to help keep the room air tight.
The ceiling construction needs lifting machines as the panels can be long and lifting to a high position might not always be easy.
Once the ceiling is set up, provisions for lights and ducts for the FFU and other equipment will be cut out from the ceiling. The lights also have to be made flush with the ceiling to maintain the integrity of the clean room.
