Our installation crews travel nationwide with standard carpentry hand tools, levels, plumb lines, hammer drills, reciprocating saws, electric miter boxes, and personal safety protection. We often rent forklifts and scissor lifts at the clients location if required. Rentable tools that may speed the installation up include ceiling laser leveling devices.

Should we install our flooring material before the installation of the modular cleanroom? 

  
No, cleanroom flooring systems may require a cove floor base that will need to roll up on the wall systems. Flooring already in place should be protected with a thin layer of luan plywood or thick cardboard while you work on assembling the modular cleanroom.

How do we hook up the lights and HEPA filters?

  
The lights and HEPA filters are shipped in two different wiring scenarios, without the modular electrical packages you will need a local licensed electrician to pipe to each light and filter per the National Electrical Codes(NEC) in your local state. With the modular electrical package you will still need a local licensed electrician to connect the prewired circuit pigtails to the correct breakers in the panel specified on our drawings and validate the installation of the modular wiring systems.

How do we balance our airflow to achieve compliant differential pressures between our cleanroom and change room?

   Magnahelic gages are included in the cleanroom package, once you have installed the gages you can adjust the rheostat on the ceiling HEPA filtration modules where the change room filters will run a bit slower than the cleanroom filters. Your can continue adjusting as needed to achieve at least a .02 difference in pressurization with the highest pressure being in the cleanroom and the lower pressure in the change room. The change room gage will still need to show adequate pressure over the ambient. Care must be taken as not to reduce airflow below compliant levels. If you are having your cleanroom NEBB certified for viable and non viable particulate counts your NEBB testing agent will most likely do this for you.
