Cleanroom Benefits

AirLock modular cleanroom enclosures protect against airborne contaminants, dirt and dust. You get higher yields and greater profits. AirLock cleanrooms are also used to guard against ultraviolet light, temperature fluctuations and harmful noise. Achieve up to ISO 4 (Class 10) particle levels, in either a single-pass or recirculating positive pressure design. Our modular cleanrooms go together easily with a minimum amount of tools. The AirLock enclosure is the only latch-together modular cleanroom available today, allowing it to easily expand to meet your needs.

No Matter How Small or How Big

AirLock pre-fabricated walls and ceilings can accommodate a wide variety of sizes, from small mini-environments and individual wall dividers, to large industrial applications. Our modular cleanrooms are suitable for a range of purposes and industries, including but not limited to electronics and semi-conductor assembly, medical device manufacturing, and aerospace/optics assembly.

Modularity of Cleanrooms and Enclosures

The hallmark of Simplex products, especially our AirLock enclosures and cleanrooms, is modularity. All of the products manufactured by Simplex are designed to be modular and expandable. Your need for clean manufacturing space may be small at first - an 8' x 10' or a 10' x 12' may suffice. But as your business grows and your needs expand, your original Simplex enclosure can expand with those needs.

AirLock Pre-Fabricated Wall Configurations

  • Choose from a wide selection of wall insert materials: soft cleanroom grade stretched vinyl (available in clear or colored and standard or anti-static compound), or 1/8” rigid options such as clear polycarbonate, white polypropylene, aluminum fluted sheets, or 50/50 split inserts.

  • AirLock wall panel framing comes in two variants: the Model 150, with 1" x 1" tubing, accommodates more common needs in smaller cleanrooms. The Model 250, with 1" x 2" tubing is used for taller walls for added support.

  • These wall panels can be used to divide existing rooms, or to create rooms using existing suspended ceilings.

  • Modular walls attach and secure easily to existing ceilings, floors and walls through various fastening methods. This offers an economical and aesthetic alternative to high-cost stick-built construction that often requires permits and other considerations. Additionally, the AirLock modular cleanroom moves with you if you change facilities.

Compression Latching System

The AirLock compression latching system means panels install and remove easily with minimal hand tools. This also gives the modular enclosure a unique portable design, ideal for temporary and quick pop-up systems. Simplex’s AirLock cleanrooms are the only latch-together enclosure available on the market today.

Basic Construction Features

  • Urethane closed-cell foam gaskets seal frame-to-frame connections.

  • All inserts lock into frame with airtight seals.

  • Pre-fabricated frame construction with knock-in corners and PVC lock spline allows for easy replacement of individual parts.

  • Most walls are interchangeable for future expansion.

  • Ceiling frames latch into position in the same manner as the walls, and accommodate various types of filtration and lighting units.

  • Lightweight aluminum frames come standard in clear anodized aluminum finish. Custom colors are also available in either anodized and powder coated finishes.

  • A variety of cleanroom doors, venting and mounting options, come pre-assembled for quick and easy installation. Less downtime means more production time.

Floor Attachments

Simplex offers you several different types of floor attachments for your AirLock cleanroom walls to ensure stability and a proper seal. All attachments can be installed temporarily using structural adhesive, or permanently by bolting to existing floors and walls. Check with Simplex or your authorized distributor for the optimal floor attachment method specific to your application.

  • Floor Cleats - Install on one or both sides of the panel
  • Wall & Ceiling Attachment Angle - Allows AirLock wall dividers to attach to existing walls and drop ceilings, with beauty battens to create flush surfaces.
  • C-Channel - Allows attachment to existing floor with faceplates to cover gaps for cleanliness.
  • Continuous Angle Stripping - Can be installed inside or outside of cleanroom, or both if desired.
