What is a mobile cleanroom?

And where are they most useful?

What is a mobile cleanroom, and where are they most likely to be used?

If we have seen anything in the last 24 months or so, it’s more dynamic and innovative expectations placed on cleanrooms. Cleanroom environments have had to adapt to a constantly evolving world with changing needs and requirements as we ourselves adapt to the requirements of a world gripped by a pandemic. 

The result has seen a massive advancement of cleanroom technology, and nowhere is this observed more than in the introduction of mobile cleanrooms to the Irish market. 

Each type of mobile cleanroom is fully configured to the needs of the end-user and the demands of the application”

What can a mobile cleanroom be used for?

If you have a need for a rapid response controlled environment or laboratory with the flexibility to move, reconfigure or place temporarily on a site then a mobile cleanroom is probably going to have an application to suit your needs. Some of the placements that we have supported have been:


  • Bio-safety laboratories (BSL 1, 2 & 3)
  • COVID19 testing stations (antigen or PCR) 
  • COVID19 diagnostic laboratories
  • Temporary cleanrooms (ISO 5, 6, 7 & 8)
  • Vaccine administration 
  • Rapid response laboratory / controlled environment requirements

Box Vans: Totally mobile for rapid response

Box Vans provide modular cleanrooms and laboratories contained within the standard structure of road-ready vehicles. Typically these take the form of a 3.5 or 7.5 tonne van, but the configuration can be adapted to suit needs. The body of the vehicle receives an internal structural exoskeleton; which provides the framework for the attachment of the insulated steel-faced walls and ceiling composite panels, ensuring a rigid and roadworthy structure, with cleanable surfaces. The room can be positively or negatively pressurised with H14 filtered air supply and environmental monitoring systems can be used to track room performance. LED

lighting is provided ensuring a minimum of 500 Lux. Air con can be incorporated into the design.

Modular Buildings: Rapid placement for medium-term requirements

Modular Buildings are an ideal solution for Irish applications, and because they have offsite construction with onsite assembly; construction works are drastically reduced. These buildings allow for complete utilisation of exterior spaces and the modular nature allows for endless size or layout configurations. With this approach, we can achieve unrestricted cleanroom design, efficient M&E design and stunning internal fitouts.

Shipping Containers: Easily transportable to maximise space

Shipping containers allow for an easily transportable platform when hosting a lab or cleanroom. This solution is perfect for times where the unit needs to be moved frequently or where space is at a premium. Available as 20ft or 40ft high cube, vertical laminar flow and internal headroom of up to 2.4m, ISO5, 6, 7 & 8 as well as BSL1,2 & 3 configurations are 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.
