The Challenge

Design and construct a cleanroom bottling facility that would process and bottle water and maintain a class 10,000 in operation.

The facility would intergrate state-of-the-art bottling equipment and ultra hygienic wall and suspended ceiling system for the production area and cleanroom gowning corridor.

The Concern

To provide architectural interior finishes that would deliver a leak-tight and air-tight wall and ceiling system. The wall and ceiling finishes would hold up to extreme moisture environment and prevent surface build-up of microorganism.

The Solution

Arcoplast provided a composite wall liner panel consisting of a non-combustible cement core layered with a fiberglass reinforcement embedded in a fire rated resin and surfaced with a non-porous, non-shedding antimicrobial gel coat finish.

The wall liner panels were manufactured in large flat molds and cut accommodate design requirement. The suspended inverted tee ceiling system accommodated the installation of 4’x4′ closed edge ceiling tiles. The inverted tee ceiling system also intergrated HEPA filters and recessed lighting fixture.

The fire rated resin and non-combustible cement core addressed the local and state building codes. The Arcoplast composite panels had to meet the ASTM E 84 flame spread and smoke development requirements.

Conclusion

  • Improved safety with Arcoplast composite panel construction with a non-combustible cement core
  • Reduced environmental risk by improved and permanent surface finish for contamination controlled environments
  • Arcoplast wall and ceiling system that can resist to high pressure washdowns in daily  sanitation regimen
  • Permanent gel coat finish resulting in reduced maintenance cost
  • Composite wall and ceiling panels that do not support growth of mold, mildew and microbes
  • Long term durability resulting in lower life cycle cost
  • Exceptional design flexibility for clean room construction
  • User friendly, product that could be installed by local tradesmen
