The P2000 costs less to manufacture than load-bearing systems and consequently allows us to design cleanrooms that are more cost effective.
St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) January 30, 2012
In its continuing effort to improve the flexibility and cost effectiveness of its modular cleanroom systems, PortaFab has introduced a new 2” thick wall system to its product line; the P2000. The new wall system integrates with its popular CleanLine and FabLine modular cleanroom systems and includes the following components:
- Aluminum studs with wiring capabilities
- Floor and top tracks
- Corner posts
- Wall starters
- Cornice mold
- Beveled windows
The system is designed for floor-to-ceiling applications that do not have load-bearing requirements such as chase walls, column wraps or other internal walls within a cleanroom environment. The studs have a maximum height of 12 feet and accommodate PortaFab’s full line of standard and made-to-order 2” thick cleanroom wall panels. Standard panels include painted aluminum on both sides of an aluminum honeycomb and vinyl faced gypsum over polystyrene, but all types of composite panels can be manufactured using a wide variety of surface and core materials with clear anodized or painted finishes.
“Internal wall systems do not typically require load-bearing characteristics, but do require wiring capabilities or utility chases and almost always need to integrate with some type of load-bearing system,” said Wayne McGee, President of PortaFab. “The P2000 costs less to manufacture than load-bearing systems and consequently allows us to design cleanrooms that are more cost effective.”
The P2000 joins PortaFab’s existing line of modular cleanroom systems that include load-bearing, interior and liner wall systems that integrate with a variety of cleanroom ceilings, windows, doors and other components.
“We continue to pursue new designs and technologies that enhance the functionality, improve the flexibility and reduce the costs associated modular cleanroom construction. The investment in this new product line further demonstrates our commitment to this market and we are excited by the growth opportunities it present,” said Wayne McGee.
