Modular cleanrooms are facilities that are designed for the purpose of certain fields of research such as biological or chemical research, and also for the manufacturing of certain high precision products. Modular cleanrooms have a logarithmic classification system that follows a grading scale based on a number of allowable particulates in the air. Class one rooms have 1 particle for every 0.5 micrometers of cubic space and so on. The class number resembling the maximum amount of particles allowed in 0.5 cubic micrometers.
Modular Cleanroom Wall Systems
As for filtration systems, modular cleanrooms often use HEPA filters and ULPA filters. These filters can remove up to 99.9% of the particulates in the air using various airflow technique. Some modular cleanrooms employ a positive pressure to keep particles out, and then some employ negative pressure to keep contaminants in. The application you will be using your modular cleanroom for will determine whether you will need a positive or negative pressure cleanroom. It is no surprise that the need for a cleanroom can be overwhelming. Panel Built can help with the confusion. The panels, windows, and doors common to our in-plant modular office system already meet your Class 1000, Class 10,000, and Class 100,000 cleanroom wall system needs. Our sales staff has the knowledge to combine our standard wall system with the appropriate cleanroom components to ensure your cleanroom meets even the most strict requirements.

Modular construction offers a variety of building options from large exterior buildings to inplant offices that fit right in your warehouse. Sometimes the standard modular building is not enough to fit a specific business need. Panel Built offers many custom options to accommodate different construction variations.
All of our projects are built 100% to customers' specifications. You will not find any cookie cutter structures from us. No matter what application you will be using our structures for, we can build a structure that best serves you. We have built everything from rappel towers for military training to modular clean rooms for precision manufacturing. Panel Built, Inc. is a turnkey provider of these modular structures. Our modular offices themselves are utilized in a number of different applications: break rooms, shipping areas, conference rooms, machine enclosures, and even modular restrooms. Whatever the application, our panel system can be adapted to fit your needs.
As your company grows, so does the need for floor space and storage. Installing Steel Mezzanines in your warehouse can double the space you have by adding a secondary floor above the warehouse floor. This new level provides you with more storage or even office space, without taking up any additional room on the warehouse floor. By reducing clutter in your warehouse, you can prevent workplace accidents, keeping warehouse injuries to a minimum and decreasing damage to equipment. Our warehouse mezzanines are designed and manufactured to meet OSHA and/or IBC code.
Industrial mezzanine floors can be power coated in any number of colors, providing a greater level of durability against abusive, corrosive applications. Panel Built's steel line fabricates powder-coated warehouse mezzanines and stair systems to your specifications- with custom sizes, heights, spans, decking materials and landings. With a consistent emphasis on quality and structural integrity, we craft every one of our steel mezzanines custom-made for you. From the design phase to installation at your plant, Panel Built is your single-source mezzanine floor system provider.
A cold rolled mezzanine refers to the method of bending sheet metal into C-channel to use as the understructure of the mezzanine floor. These cold-rolled pieces attach to the tubular steel or tapered columns and provide the “beams" that support the floor. Cold rolled has two major benefits over structural steel mezzanines.
First, the material is much lighter than structural steel and therefore less expensive to ship. This usually means there is also less equipment needed to erect the structure on site.
Second, cold-rolled steel can be pre-galvanized; offering substantial savings over hot-dipped galvanized, stainless steel, or aluminum mezzanines. A disadvantage of cold-rolled steel mezzanine systems is the very limited column spacing (usually 10' - 15' max). They are also unable to reach the high live loads or heavily concentrated point loads that can be accomplished with structural steel mezzanine systems.
Vertical Reciprocating Conveyors (VRCs) or Vertical Lifts are one of the most convenient ways to transport material to your mezzanine floor. Although similar, VRCs are not classified as elevators, and therefore do not have to meet strict elevator codes and regulations. VRCs are strictly for the transportation of materials and not passengers. Thanks to this design, VRCs are manufactured and installed at a lower cost.
Additionally, VRCs are safer to operate in comparison to forklifts or other material lifting methods, boosting the overall safety of the facility. For our Vertical Reciprocating Conveyor projects, Panel Built works with Custom Industrial Products, Inc. to bring our customers the highest quality VRCs available. Panel Built and CIP work closely to determine which VRC type best fits each application and how to best integrate it into your project.
All Panel Built metal stairs, railing, and components are engineered, fabricated and powder coated at our plant for a lasting finish and fast delivery. But, that does not mean you will be receiving a cookie-cutter steel stair system.
Each metal stair project is still custom-designed to fit your specific space needs.
That means if you need a specific stair layout with multiple landings, U-turn stairs, or a special Rise/Run, we can accommodate these custom designs.
And Panel Built's metal, steel stair features do not stop there! Panel Built offers a variety of handrail options to increase the safety of your new metal stair system. Handrail pickets, intermediate horizontal railing, mesh siding, and glass siding are just some of the different options we can accommodate. In addition, stair treads come in diamond plate, bar grating, or even cement-filled pans. And both open and closed risers are available.
Barrier Railing Protects Your Investments
Constructed of high strength steel and designed to withstand severe impacts, our barrier rails provide your facility with extra protection. Panel Built's Forklift Barrier Rail system can be ordered in single or double rails. A powder-coated finish enhances the safety railing's steel surface.
Lift-Out Barrier Rail System
There are a number of benefits to the new system, including easier installation, improved aesthetics, and quick access to equipment behind the barrier rail.
Panel Built barrier rail features a complete integral sleeve with sections that slide in and out. This offers much more flexibility with the same structural integrity. Like all of our metal products, our barrier rail is powder-coated for aesthetics and durability.
