Clean Rooms

Clean Rooms

Clean rooms are designed for a variety of activities such as pharmaceuticals, biotechnology, food, surgical supplies, etc.  All of these are characterized by a common factor: the need for an environment completely free  of particles to prevent interference in the manufacturing and research processes. 


They pose a challenge for fire protection since they have complex ventilation systems. The danger of a fire outbreak quickly gathering force is very high due to the continuous air supply and circulation.  In case of fire, losses are substantial, not only due to fire damage itself, but also due to problems resulting from the increase of contamination beyond accepted levels.


When this occurs, the processes, components or tests carried out in these rooms are invalidated due to the modification of preset conditions.  Due to the high technology involved and the delicate processes carried out in clean rooms, any changes in the pre-determined environmental conditions for these rooms cause major damage. 


Clean rooms are occupied spaces or enclosures in which people work continuously. Their protection therefore becomes essential, protection both from fire and from the agent used to extinguish it. As well as being clean, this agent must also be non-toxic to humans and should not impede their evacuation.


The complexity of detection lies in the difficulty of early smoke detection due to the continuous purification of the air. This means that once the ignition has occurred, the chosen extinguishing agent should be able to eliminate any possibility of the fire spreading, suppressing it quickly to minimize damage.  Wide range of protection solutions. Choosing the most suitable system comes from the previous study of all the room’s properties.
