Global Lifesciences Company, Shannon

Working with NGS Cleanroom Solutions to supply a large ISO 8 cleanroom facility

We supplied our FM Approved Puracore® Clean Room System to clean room specialists NGS Cleanroom Solutions for an expansive ISO 8 manufacturing facility development for a Global Lifesciences Company in Shannon, Ireland.

The end user is an American medical equipment and devices company specialising in artificial heart valves, repair products and hemodynamic (blood flow) monitoring. They are a forerunner in these fields, developing devices which have helped treat and manage more than 2 million patients across the world.

Working closely with NGS Cleanroom Solutions, Puracore® manufactured and supplied a complete 950m2, ISO 8 Class, fully flush Clean Room with our FM Approved 50mm Aluminium Honeycomb Clean Room panels.

Puracore® delivered approximately 305 aluminium honeycomb clean room panels to site which included bespoke wall panels, header panels, transfer hatch surrounds and column encasements. All panels were skinned with Aluminium and finished in White PVC Laminate, this finish complies with clean room requirements and regulations and can withstand heavy cleaning regimes.

The system also incorporated flush doors and windows, Puracore® supplied seven 50mm thick flush double glazed vision panels with 6mm thick toughened glass as well as 3 fully flush double doors and 7 single leaf flush doors.

The large clean room reaches heights of 4.4m and Puracore® provided Recess Base for panels to be installed onto, this allows for the flooring to be installed up against the base creating a flush finish. To complete the fully flush system Puracore® manufactured header channels, mullions, fixings and sealings.

The large Class 8 ISO clean room will facilitate the controlled manufacture of valuable medical devices and equipment. The finished development is another successful clean room project collaboration between Puracore® and NGS Cleanroom Solutions.
