Shipping Containers

Base Specifications

20ft/40ft high cube tunnel containers; all Cor-Ten steel construction, two locking bars on each door, two sets of double steel doors, two forklift pockets each side and 28mm marine plydeck. CSC plated and re-certified after modifications to allow for transport via international standard shipping cargo network or Euro road network.


20ft: 6m (L) x 2.2m (W) x
2.7m (H) GW 30 Ton

40ft: 12m (L) x 2.2m (W) x
2.7m (H) GW 30 Ton


CleanCube Containers are an easily transportable platform for hosting a lab or cleanroom, either for applications where the unit needs to be moved often, or for applications where space is at a premium. Available as 20ft or 40ft high cube, vertical laminar flow and internal head room of up to 2.4m, ISO5, 6, 7 & 8 as well as BSL1,2 & 3 all achievable. Temperature and humidity control, 1-ph 13-amp and 3-ph electrical power, data, compressed air and gas services, extraction, vacuum, furniture and equipment can all be accommodated and pre-installed by our dedicated Installation Team.

No external modifications are made and no load is imposed on the walls or ceiling of the structure – therefore containers can ship via normal cargo methods, decreasing shipping times and saving transportation costs. External overhead plant decks can ship separately to maximise the internal footprint if bespoke AHUs are required. Otherwise footprint can accommodate a small plant room for some air handling, compressors and other plant.

Internal Fitout

Modular Panels

Powder-coated CR4 mild steel panels with polyisocyanurate PIR in-sulated core, interlocking joints, 50mm thickness to form walls and ceiling. Highly durable, cleanable, chemically resistant, silicon sealed.


Homogenous vinyl floor reinforced with cross-linked polyurethane, UV- cured, hold-welded joints. Coved 100mm up the wall over underlay former and capped. Copper- grounded anti-static vinyl also available.

Rapid Rise Doors

PVC door with stainless steel or anodized aluminium frame and drum cover, contactless motion- sensor activation. Rapid open-and-close speeds, interlocked with break glass and status indicators.


Powder-coated CR4 mild steel door leaf with 45mm Dufaylite-insulated core, flush-mounted vision panel and stainless- steel fixtures and fittings. Aluminium wrap-around frame. Interlocked.

Power Source

Safety isolation transformers on all CleanCubes provides the mobile unit with independent grounding from the connected power source. 32amp male hardwired plug exterior-mounted.

Led Lights

Powder-coated steel light units, flush mounted into the ceiling panels with drop-down hinged diffuser. Also available as surface-mounted aluminium LED batten luminaires for laboratories.


Stainless steel or white plastic 13amp sockets, mounted flush or in three-way PVC compartment trunking. CAT6 network sockets and 16amp or 32amp three phase sockets also available.


Fan filter units (FFU) with H14 HEPA filters and G4 pre-filters, provide 1,000m3/hour of filtered air. HEPA filtration can also be placed on the exhaust to provide BSL-3 compliance.

Air Conditioning

Powder-coated CR4 mild steel door leaf with 45mm Dufaylite-insulated core, flush-mounted vision panel and stainless- steel fixtures and fittings. Aluminium wrap-around frame. Interlocked.


Compressed air and nitrogen via compressors and generators housed directly within the cleanroom or lab – or in an enclosed plantroom. Pipework, point of use fittings, regulators and hook-up connections can also be put in place for onsite connection to cylinders.

Furniture & Equipment

Biological Safety Cabinets

Class II microbiological safety cabinets offer the highest level of operator, product and environmental protection from infectious/biohazardous aerosols. Suitable for microbiological agents assigned to biosafety levels one, two, three, or four.


Self-contained stainless steel sinks with container-fed hot & cold water supply and separate drainage vessel. Motion sensor- activated tap, soap & towel dispenser attached. Alternative mains supply/ drainage sinks also available in the range.


Cabinets manufactured from Trespa or grade 304/316L stainless steel, available with a range of door and drawer configurations, stainless fixtures and fittings. Available on casters or levelling legs.


Grade 304 or 316L stainless steel frames made from 50mm box section with a Trespa or stainless steel worksurface. Framework on levelling legs with support bars on 45° diagonal offset to reduce ledges, available with upstands.

Stepover Benches

Available as standard seating benches on levelling legs or with storage compartments underneath, for shoes, garments, PPE and consumables. Manufactured from Trespa or grade 304/316L stainless steel.

Nitrogen Generators

A reliable and efficient alternative to conventional high-pressure cylinders, N2 generators have in-built compressors and convert ambient air to N2 process gas at a maximum purity of 99.9995% at a maximum flow rate of six litres per minute.

Laminar Flow Benches

Vertical or horizontal laminar flow workbenches are H14 HEPA-filtered work stations that provide product with an upgraded air classification. The units are manufactured from powder-coated steel.

Transfer Hatch

Grade 304/316L, powder-coated steel or polypropylene transfer hatches, electromagnetically or mechanically interlocked with vision panels and seamless welds for contained product transfer. Also available as trolley hatch.
