Cleanroom environments are present in a wide variety of industry sectors with doors playing a crucial role in ensuring that hygiene standards and environmental conditions are controlled. Using their 40+ years heritage specifically within the high-speed door industry, pioneers EFAFLEX are once again leading the way with their range of door solutions designed to match every application or budget.
UK Managing Director, Darren Turrell helps to explain, ‘We understand the varying needs within cleanroom applications. It’s not, or it shouldn’t be a ‘one door fits all’ approach. Instead we have designed a family of space saving doors that each serve a purpose with a common DNA of improving user safety, reducing energy costs, and controlling environmental conditions.‘ He went on, ‘We have over 90 different door types and configurations within our portfolio including our unique spiral, roll- up and folding. Within our CR Cleanroom range we have a good, better, best option. EFAFLEX have a reputation as a premium brand, which is true. We are premium in terms of our design, hallmark engineering and innovative features setting the benchmark within high-speed doors. These are roller shutter doors of the future.’
EFAFLEX Cleanroom CR product range consists of five main types and all are accredited to either TÜV ISO Class 5 or 6, space saving in design and with door opening speeds up to 2.5 metres per second where fast action is required. The EFA-SRT®CR Premium is extremely airtight (up to 20m³/h) at a compressive strength of up to 30 Pa. It is ideally suited to sealing rooms of differing pressures with its fast opening action increasing cost efficiency, reducing air loss and keeping the filter load low.
At the other extreme the EFA- SRT® ECO combines an excellent price-performance ratio. It’s space saving, slim line frame means that it can be easily installed within a variety of applications such as runways and automatic transportation systems. As standard the curtain is fully transparent and supplied with warning strips making it ideal within materials handling and logistics settings.
