Softwall Cleanrooms

Softwalls are the most economical type of modular cleanroom wall construction. Clear and flexible panels are mounted onto a robust, steel frame, enclosing the clean area.

The PVC or Polysim™ panels overlap to ensure the walls of the softwall cleanroom are effective barriers when in position. The positive airflow pushes air down through the cleanroom, allowing particles to be flushed out through the low level exhaust vent.

For large scale softwall cleanrooms, we recommend a mid-height rail to control access.

Softwall Cleanroom Options: PolySim™ or PVC

PolySim™ benefits:
  • Class 1 fire-rated
  • No outgassing, no blooming
  • Permanent ESD dissipation
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Available in clear, white and black
PVC benefits:
  • Popular, economic option
  • Reduced static version optional
  • Non degradable in ambient conditions
  • High UV resistance
  • Available in clear and many colour tints

Simplex PolySim 509 Softwall Cleanroom Strip Curtains

This non-outgassing material is made by Simplex from an inherently static dissipative urethane that provides permanent, non-humidity dependent ESD protection for sensitive manufacturing conditions such as computer disc drives, microelectronics and aerospace. There is no plasticizer used in Polysim, making the volatile condensable contaminants extremely low. Because Polysim is an alloy using high molecular weight materials, the static dissipation properties are permanent. Polysim is also Class 1 fire rated per flame spread and smoke test.

Softwall Cleanroom Benefits:

  • Self-closing - reduce the risk of particles entering the room
  • Extremely economical
  • Lets in light for ambient working conditions
  • Allows external staff to oversee internal cleanroom processes
  • Perfect for full or part-coverage of machinery

Recommended for:

  • All sizes of cleanrooms
  • ISO Class 7-8 cleanrooms
  • Mobile cleanrooms (can be moved to different production areas easily)
  • Mini-environments (create an ultra-clean environment in an existing cleanroom)
  • Manufacturing, engineering, food, plastics, printing aerospace and many more applications.
