What is a Hardwall Cleanroom?
Figure 1 A Sample of Hardwall Cleanroom
As the name suggests, a hardwall cleanroom utilizes the use of sandwich panels to make its walls. This is unlike the softwall cleanroom, which would have flexible curtains as the walls.
Because of its construction, you will find it is a great choice for some specific applications where the softwall cleanroom could not work great.
The hardwall cleanroom would also have better flexibility and more applications than other types of cleanrooms. It is why such would be among the most sought-after options when buying a cleanroom.
What are the Properties of a Hardwall Cleanroom?
If you are new to hardwall cleanrooms, you may not understand why they are popular until you learn more about their properties. Here are some of the features you will get with a hardwall cleanroom.
– The cleanrooms are designed for different classes. It is why you may get more people going for them since they know such cleanrooms would be suitable for their needs. You may want to check out the different classes of hardwall cleanrooms to understand where best to use them.

How Does a Hardwall Cleanroom Work?
A hardwall cleanroom works by removing particles, contaminants, and pollutants from the ambient air getting into the enclosed space. First, the outside air is passed through the filtration system. This includes passing the air through the primary filters and then through the HEPA or ULPA filter.
These filters will decontaminate the outside air based on the cleanroom cleanliness levels. This filtered air is now forced to get into the cleanroom. Simultaneously, the contaminated air already in the cleanroom gets forced out or recirculated into the filters for filtering again.
What are the Benefits of a Hardwall Cleanroom?
You might have seen hardwall cleanrooms as the most popular option in all types. But why is that the reason? Here are some of the benefits you experience when you pick a hardwall cleanroom.

– Other people also find these types of cleanrooms easy to clean and maintain their finish. You simply have to follow the manufacturer’s maintenance guide, and you should be fine operating the cleanroom for many years.
– Most are designed to let in light for better ambient working environments. It is why some would not feel constricted into a special building but rather treat it like any other type of building with a higher cleanliness level.
– The hardwall cleanrooms can still be available in different sizes. You never have to worry that the Zonsteel cleanrooms will not fit your application.
– The hardwall cleanrooms are designed for flexibility. This means they can easily be adapted to different jobs. If you have a hardwall cleanroom for medical applications, you can still use the same for electronics manufacturing with only a few changes.

When Should You Change the HEPA Filter in a Hardwall Cleanroom?
Figure 5 Operators Using a Hardwall Cleanroom
The HEPA filter can remove up to 99.99% of the particles of size up to 0.3 microns in diameter. Such a filter performance is what makes it a favorite among the users looking for a great hardwall cleanroom.
However, the filter needs to be changed when it is damaged or clogged due to years of use. On average, you are advised to change it after 2 to 3 years, depending on the condition. Advise to detect every half a year for class 100 and class 1000. And to detect every year for class 10000, and class 100000. Once find the leaking, replace the filter then. If it has to filter dusty air all the time, you may have to replace it sooner.
You should also check this type of filter every six months to ensure it works great, just as you wanted.
Are Lights Part of a Hardwall Cleanroom Construction?

What are the Door Options for a Hardwall Cleanroom?
The door options include the aluminum frame swing door, or sometimes being made of sandwich panels or acrylic. The doors will also vary in terms of size and how they open. The manufacturer will share these things in the product catalog to help the client understand more when choosing a hardwall cleanroom.
Is it Easy to Set Up Hardwall Cleanrooms?
It is generally easy to set up a hardwall cleanroom. However, it should be done by a professional. The last thing you need is a cleanroom that cannot maintain its performance and integrity over time.
The setup process is made easy because of the modular design of the hardwall cleanroom. This is better than when you would have to deal with traditional cleanroom designs.
Also, the package will have everything you need for fast assembly. This includes the installation accessories if a client finds them necessary.

Can You make a Hardwall Cleanroom From an Existing Building?
Yes. This is possible. A cleanroom does not always have to be built from scratch when there is an existing building. You can set it up to be part of the existing building or movable when you set it up on casters.
Is a Hardwall Cleanroom Cleaner than a Softwall Cleanroom, or Vice Versa?
If you look at a hardwall cleanroom’s operation, you can understand why it is commonly preferred as a cleaner option. The hardwall construction provides a better barrier to particle intrusion and more control on how you can adjust the humidity, temperature, and other important aspects of a hardwall cleanroom.
Another significant difference between a hardwall and a softwall cleanroom is that the hardwall models can hold significant positive pressure to prevent particles intrusion. That is not what you get with a softwall cleanroom, as it might have perimeter air gaps.
The hardwall cleanroom has multiple applications so that it can be used in different environments. It is why more people would always consider it when picking new cleanrooms.
