Glanbia, Kilkenny

Complex cleanroom requirements

Glanbia required a fully flush and FM approved cleanroom system to house food processing and packing areas, as well as changing areas for personnel. The complex design meant Puracore® had to flexible in the manufacture of components, ensuring each component was tailored to fit the system and it’s requirements.

Supplying a bespoke cleanroom

Puracore® supplied 1400m² of bespoke wall, liner and ceilings panels along with door systems and a number of custom windows. Puracore’s FM approved 50mm wall and ceiling panels were utilised alongside 17.5mm liner panels, both with Aluminium honeycomb core and faced with uPVC White food safe laminate.

The flexibility of the Puracore® system allowed panels to span over 3 floors, up to 9m whilst accommodating extractors, pipelines, and steel supports in a semi-open or exposed manner as specified by the customer. The system supplied also included roller doors, personnel doors and flush double glazed vision panels.
