clean room door considerations

>> Why we should choose steel door for cleanroom? 

1. Choose the door that well matches the cleanroom wall

Before buying doors and windows for clean rooms, the first factor you need to consider is the wall material. Some cleanroom projects use brick walls (for example, hospital cleanrooms often are made of brick walls), but most cleanrooms use sandwich panel to erect cleanroom walls.

Each type of wall will have a different door frame.

The manual sandwich panel wall has a flat door frame, while the machine-made sandwich panel wall uses a clamping frame. Rockwool in rock wool panel, or honeycomb paper in honeycomb panel is the core material of the panel.

2. Cleanroom door surface material 

After deciding which type of wall to use, the second thing we need to choose is the appropriate door surface material, the most common material is galvanized steel and stainless steel (stainless steel).

Most hospital operating rooms, clean rooms in industrial plants often choose galvanized steel sheets as cleanroom door surface material. Galvanized steel is a material that is used more and more economically than other materials.

3. Cleanroom door core material

The core material has a great influence on the performance of the cleanroom door. Currently, aluminum honeycomb and honeycomb paper are the two most used materials on the market. Compared with paper honeycomb, aluminum honeycomb has more outstanding advantages, such as better bearing capacity, longer service life, moisture-proof, insect-proof, and anti-corrosion.

When it comes to cleanroom projects with high-quality requirements, we should use the aluminum honeycomb as the core material of cleanroom doors.

4. Choose the right type of cleanroom door gasket

Cleanroom door seals are usually divided into 2 types: standard door gaskets and glued door seals. Standard door seals last longer than glued door seals.

5. Glass window on clean room door

When choosing a glass window for a cleanroom steel door, we need to pay attention to whether there is a 3C line or not. Cleanroom doors are usually fitted with double-layer tempered glass. Double glazing needs to be hollow and sealed to reduce the loss of temperature and humidity differences.
