St. Louis, Missouri (PRWEB) April 24, 2012
PortaFab has introduced a new wall system to its popular FabLine Modular Cleanroom System. The new Strut Wall allows one to create bay and chase cleanrooms more quickly and cost effectively than with traditional modular cleanroom walls.
By incorporating a standard strut-style metal framing into the wall system, the Strut Wall eliminates the need to frame out cleanrooms while still utilizing standard strut connectors for piping, conduit and other utilities. It also incorporates a ½” thick aluminum honeycomb panel and lighter weight aluminum extrusions that cost less and are easier to transports and assemble.
“One of the world’s largest companies challenged us to design a more cost effective modular cleanroom system for the development of their critical manufacturing environments across the globe,” said Wayne McGee, President of PortaFab. “By working with this customer and our network of cleanroom contractors, we were able to develop a system that not only reduces design and assembly time, but also costs less.”
The new wall system includes uniquely designed hardware and aluminum extrusions that allow one to quickly create horizontal framing for openings and bulkheading requirements. It was designed to integrate with PortaFab’s FabLine system used primarily in the microelectronic and nanotech industries. It joins PortaFab’s existing line of modular cleanrooms that include load-bearing, interior and liner wall systems that integrate with a variety of cleanroom ceiling grid systems, flush windows, hi-speed cleanroom doors and other components.
“Our continuing efforts to enhance the functionality, improve the flexibility and reduce the costs associated modular cleanroom construction are yielding strong dividends for both PortaFab and its customers. Based on the initial success of this product line, we expect it to be received very well by our entire network of cleanroom contractors,” said McGee.
