St. Louis, MO (PressExposure) February 20, 2009 -- PortaFab, the leading manufacturer and designer of pre-engineered modular building systems, introduces a solution for the pharmaceutical, biomedical and life sciences industries: the PharmaSystem modular wall and ceiling system. The PharmaSystem is ideal for any cleanroom or critical environment application.
âIn order to protect the integrity of their products, companies need cleanrooms that adhere to the utmost standards,â said Wayne McGee, President at PortaFab. âThe PharmaSystem walls meet the needs of the biomedical, pharmaceutical and life sciences fields by providing a monolithic wall surface that eliminates areas for microorganisms to inhabit.â
Whether for a brand new facility or retrofitting an existing facility, the PharmaSystem walls are extremely easy to install and are flexible, allowing the system to be designed for any configuration. Integrated with metal stud framework, PharmaSystem walls can hang off one of both sides of studs, creating a utility chase with a more economical panel. To create a smooth panel transition across the surface of a wall, panels have formed or cut edges to connect directly to one another and utilize a caulk joint, gel coat or chemical weld. Individual panels can be removed by striking the joints and removing the panel off the framework making the system flexible and easily relocated.
Made of non-combustible, non-porous and non-outgassing materials, typical construction involves aluminum honeycomb cores and skins that are non-hygroscopic and corrosion resistant. The surfaces withstand repeated cleaning and sanitization with various chemicals and are resistant to sustaining microbial and fungal growth. All wall and ceiling panels utilize a surface applied, smooth unplasticized PVC finish that allows panel faces to be chemically welded to one another to create smooth straight line seams. Alternate panel finishes are also available and can be sealed to create a homogeneous finish throughout the cleanroom.
The systems are the perfect solution for creating cost-effective controlled environments in pharmaceutical and biotechnology facilities. For more information and to view photos of the PharmaSystem modular wall system, please visit http://www.portafab.com/pharmawalls.html.
