Chapter One – What is a Softwall Cleanroom?
A softwall cleanroom is a confined controlled space with a metal
frame, clear panel walls, an entrance, high efficiency
particulate air (HEPA) filters, and exceptional lighting that is
designed to provide a contaminant and particulate matter free
workspace. They are easy to assemble with lightweight sections
and are significantly less expensive than hardwall permanent
cleanrooms. Softwall cleanrooms are versatile and adjustable
such that they can be expanded to meet changing needs or easily
moved for convenient access.
The standard sizes of softwall cleanrooms range from 4 feet by 4
feet up to 24 feet by 36 feet. The flexibility of softwall
cleanrooms makes it possible to design and create multiple
configurations and sizes depending on customer needs. Aside from
the standard sizes, softwall clean rooms can have additions and
adjustments that instantly change their size to fit new and
Chapter Two – Softwall Cleanroom Design
Softwall cleanrooms have multiple uses due to their ability to
be portable, small size, and having the capability to fit into
confined or limited spaces. They can be disassembled when not
needed but be reassembled to meet production needs. The
practicality and adaptability of softwall cleanrooms make them
ideal for small manufacturers who require controlled conditions
or large manufacturers looking for a contaminant free portable
There are multiple factors to consider when designing a
cleanroom, which partially includes its International
Organization of Standardization (ISO) classification. For
example, an ISO 8 cleanroom can be entered without passing
through an airlock, while an ISO 5 cleanroom requires the
addition of an airlock or two. Additionally, the HVAC system has
a great deal of influence on the capabilities of a softwall
How a Softwall Cleanroom is Designed
The supporting frame of a softwall cleanroom is made of powder
coated steel or aluminum uprights, cross sections, and ceiling
frames. The frame can support the filtration system, air
handling units, light fixtures, and ceiling tiles. The
dimensions of the frame are determined by the needs of the
customer. With steel tubular framing, the ceiling structure has
welded T bars to support the filters.
The ceiling of a softwall cleanroom is a grid system that is
supported by lightweight connectors that join the pieces of the
grid. The two types of ceiling grids include self supporting and
suspended. The design of self supporting ceiling grids requires
the use of heavy duty aluminum or steel with the number of posts
depending on the height and weight of the ceiling. Standard self
supporting ceiling grids are not walkable, which can be adjusted
if it is necessary for maintenance personnel to be on the
Hanging ceiling grids use turnbuckles and steel rods to support
the ceiling, lighting, and filters. Though they have the extra
support, they are not walkable.
The height of the softwall cleanroom’s ceiling can be from seven
to ten feet, with custom sizes being available. A two inch
minimum clearance is necessary between the filtration units and
the facility ceiling, with the height of the filer units being
Softwall Cleanroom Walls
Walls for softwall cleanrooms are made of clear, flame
retardant, outgassing thick vinyl strips. The vinyl panels are
lightweight, easy to install, and easy to clean. The walls of
softwall cleanrooms can be made in various colors to match the
needs of a process and the frequency of exposure to UV
sensitivity. They are made of 40 mil vinyl with door panels made
of 80 mil. The panels are hung overlapping to create a barrier
against the external environment.
The 40 mil vinyl panels have double the required material,
making them tear resistant. They are attached to the support
frame with a grip track mounting system to prevent
Air Treatment System
The air treatment system is the heart of a softwall cleanroom
and is dependent on the airflow pattern, air supply, HEPA
filters, and the room's air pressure. The classification of the
air treatment system is determined by the air change per hour
(ACH), which is used to set the ISO classification. The
variations in the air change rate run from 10 times per hour up
to 250 times per hour. The higher the air change rate is, the
higher the ISO classification.
High efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filters are the industry
standard for cleanroom air treatment. Filtered air from a HEPA
filter has 99.97% of particulate matter at 0.3 microns removed
including dust, pollen, animal dander, bacteria, and various
forms of contaminates. They are made of randomly placed
fiberglass fibers of varying densities. The diameter and
thickness of the fibers is the reason for HEPA filter
The density of HEPA filters requires a powerful air circulation
system to be able to move air through them.
The HVAC system is designed to control the temperature and
humidity in a softwall cleanroom in half ton to two ton
capacities. For softwall cleanrooms, HVAC systems need to have a
multiple panel design for variable ducting to meet the changing
needs of softwall cleanrooms. Condensers can be air or water
cooled depending on the needs of the softwall cleanroom.
Air is pulled into the HVAC system from outside the cleanroom
and drawn through prefilters. Next, it goes through the HVAC
system and out through the HEPA filters into the room. As the
air is pushed into the cleanroom, it is forced vertically
downward toward the floor where it exits underneath the vinyl
plastic strip walls. In special circumstances, air conditioning
may need to be ducted from the HVAC system of the building or
some other form.
The HVAC air flow system of a softwall cleanroom is a single
pass, which is unlike solid wall cleanrooms that may have single
pass or recirculating systems.
Lighting a Cleanroom
The amount of lighting is dependent on the types of processes
that will be conducted in the cleanroom. This aspect of a
softwall cleanroom installation is determined well in advance to
ensure the correct illumination to fit the conditions. The major
difficulty with softwall cleanroom design is the placement of
the lighting since the major thrust of the design is to ensure
proper air movement and filtration.
Some common forms of softwall cleanroom lighting are recessed,
surface mount, and teardrop. Of the three, teardrop has issues
since it affects the headroom of a softwall cleanroom.
Recessed troffers are designed to fit in the suspended drop
ceiling. They fit tightly in place to provide excellent
illumination without interfering with the airflow. Recessed
troffers fit flat along the ceiling line, leaving plenty of
space for the plenum. They are found in the highest
classifications of softwall cleanrooms.
Surface mounted softwall cleanroom lighting is only used in
lower classifications of cleanrooms due to their interference
with the airflow. They are mounted on the ceiling and are not
recessed, which is why they interfere with the airflow.
Teardrop lighting hangs below the ceiling to make room for
airflow. Their shape is designed to avoid interference with the
airflow and not create turbulence. Though teardrop lights do not
interfere with airflow patterns, they take up headroom.

Chapter Three – Types of Softwall Cleanrooms
Softwall cleanrooms have been increasing in popularity for
several years due to their lower cost and flexibility. They are
tent like, lightweight, and easy to assemble. Part of their
flexibility is their ability to be freestanding or have ceilings
suspended from the structure of a building. They are much
smaller than hard wall clean rooms and can be adjusted to fit
into any space.
There are very few distinctions between softwall cleanrooms
since the majority of them have the same features, such as vinyl
walls and tubular aluminum or steel frames. Aside from the basic
configuration of softwall cleanrooms, there are certain features
that can be added to them that can differentiate them.
Casters or Wheels
The ultimate flexibility of a softwall cleanroom is one that is
exceptionally portable and placed on casters. This configuration
makes it possible to move the cleanroom to any location where it
is required. In the case of all types of cleanrooms, especially
steel framed ones, casters need to be sturdy, capable of
supporting the weight of the frame, self locking, and have
Ceiling Suspended Softwall Cleanrooms
Ceiling suspended softwall cleanrooms are a very flexible
version of softwall cleanrooms that make it possible to easily
adjust the dimensions of the cleanroom when needed. They have a
significantly lower cost when the potential for constant
dimension changes may be necessary.
The ceiling grid for the softwall cleanroom is hung from the
joists of a building’s ceiling. The softwalls or curtains are
hung from the edges of the softwall cleanroom’s ceiling using
hook beads on the tops of the curtains, which makes it possible
to slide them in the tracks of their frame. The softwalls of the
cleanroom do not have a frame but hang like curtains.
Cleanroom Frames Types
There are two types of frames for softwall cleanrooms: steel and
aluminum. Both metals are shaped in tubular form with aluminum
tubing being extruded and having a higher per square foot cost.
The framing material supports the cleanroom’s softwalls and its
ceiling. It defines the shape of the softwall cleanroom and its
Aluminum framing is an extruded aluminum alloy with a white
powder baked on the coating. It is leveled with padding and
fasteners placed at the ends of the tubing to meet the needs of
the environmental conditions. The major benefit of aluminum
framing is its lightweight, making it easier to disassemble and
move. The aluminum tubing makes it possible to easily expand
softwall cleanrooms or repurpose them.
Steel framing is made of tubular steel that is formed, welded,
and powder coated. To enhance the strength of the steel framing,
the tubing is tightly bolted and secured. The bolting allows for
adjustments to the size of the cleanroom to accommodate changes
to processes or testing needs. Steel framing is heavier and more
difficult to move but costs less than aluminum framing.
One of the features of softwall cleanrooms that users enjoy the
most is the ability to expand and contract the workspace to fit
the needs of technicians. This particular aspect of softwall
cleanrooms makes it possible to add to the initial softwall
cleanroom to drastically increase its size to potentially match
the size of a hardwall built in cleanroom.
In the example below, an 8x8x8 cleanroom is doubled in size by
the addition of an 8x12x8 expansion.
Free Standing Horizontal Airflow
Free standing horizontal airflow softwall cleanrooms have
horizontal airflow provided by laminar flow built into the sides
of the clean room. Air is pulled through the back of the unit
and pushed through the HEPA filters. The horizontal design
places the workspace closer to the filtered airflow. It offers
improved environmental conditions for certain applications.
Horizontal free standing airflow softwall cleanrooms are used by
life sciences, medical instrument manufacturers, pharmaceutical
companies, and electronics manufacturers.
Gowning rooms are typically found in hardwall or modular
cleanrooms. With softwall cleanrooms, they can be an additional
feature for higher classification softwall cleanrooms. Gowning
room curtains are attached to the ceiling grid system to provide
a separate enclosed space for technicians to prepare for
entering the uncontaminated cleanroom.
There are a variety of choices for the walls of a softwall
cleanroom with Polypropylene, vinyl, and Polyvinyl Chloride
(PVC) being the most common ones. The purpose of the types of
soft plastic walls is to insulate the cleanroom environment from
the intrusion of contaminants. They can be easily attached and
detached as required to fit the testing conditions.
Vinyl, which can be made in different colors to meet the needs
of a process, is lightweight and easy to install and clean. The
different types of vinyl strips are 40 mil with door panels
being heavier and sturdier. The vinyl panels are overlapped when
they are hung for extra protection of the cleanroom environment.
The thick vinyl strips of the walls are exceptionally thick to
prevent tearing and are attached to the frame with a grip track
Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC)
PVC is one of the most recommended materials for cleanrooms and
areas that are sensitive to contaminants. The properties and
characteristics of PVC make it easy to clean and capable of
being kept contaminate free.
PP is used when purity, strength, and rigidity are required. It
is resistant to chemical leaching and corrosion as well as being
resilient against impact and damage from freezing. The
versatility of PP makes it possible to fuse it to other
materials without needing to be glued. Its exceptional
resistance to heat makes it ideal for conditions where
autoclaves or heat tests are performed.
High density polyethylene is impact and abrasion resistant with
a low friction coefficient and is FDA approved. It is an ideal
fabric for softwall cleanrooms due to its high durability and
resilience. When woven as a fabric, polyethylene has exceptional
tensile strength and tear resistance with a Class 1 flammable
Vinyl Coated Polyester (VCP)
As with the other materials for use as softwalls, VCP has a very
high tear and abrasion resistance, making it ideal for a wide
variety of applications. It is 100% polyester with a smooth,
even polyvinyl chloride coating. The application of the coating
gives the polyester a fire retardant, anti-fungal, and UV
stabilizer. The resilience and strength of VCP make an ideal
material for the rigors of the work performed in a softwall
Vinyl, PVC, and PP make it possible to choose the exact material
to fit the conditions, applications, and work performed in a
Types of Entrances
As with hard rigid walled cleanrooms, softwall cleanrooms have a
selection of different types of entrances with overlap, plastic
strip curtains, sliding, automatic rolling doors, and hinged
swing doors being the most common. The style of the entrances
significantly affects the classification of a softwall cleanroom
since it determines the number of contaminants that enter the
room. It is for this reason that high classifications have pass
throughs or gowning rooms to limit the number of contaminants.
Vertical airflow softwall cleanrooms are the most common types
with a laminar flow system located in the ceiling of the
softwall cleanroom. The HVAC system pulls air from the
surrounding environment and forces it through the HEPA filters
down into the workspace where it exits underneath the softwalls
just above the floor.
Chapter Four – Softwall Cleanroom ISO Classifications
The most important criteria softwall cleanrooms have to meet are
the requirements for their ISO classification. The design of
softwall cleanrooms does not make it possible for them to meet
the highest ISO standards since they are not capable of the type
of tight seal found in rigid and hardwall cleanrooms.
Regardless of their disadvantages, softwall cleanrooms can meet
some of the stringent stipulations of the ISO and are classified
as ISO 5 up to ISO 8. This meets the needs of a wide range of
ISO Classifications of Softwall Cleanrooms
Cleanrooms are classified according to the cleanliness levels of
the air inside the room. The classifications are based on the
quantity and size of the particulate matter in one cubic meter
of air. There are two systems used to classify cleanrooms, which
are the United States Federal Standard 209E (FS 209E) and the
International Organization of Standardization (ISO). Both forms
of classification are widely used by manufacturers to designate
the cleanliness of their cleanrooms.
The classification systems run from ISO 1 to ISO 9 for the ISO
system, while the FS 209E system runs from Class 100,000 to
Class 1. There are further standards that are industry specific
as well as international standards such as EU GMP and USP.
The nature of softwall cleanrooms makes it impossible for them
to reach classifications below ISO 5 or FS 209E Class 100. For
the majority of industries, these classifications are sufficient
for their purposes. The more restrictive classifications are
required by exceptionally sensitive and highly technical
ISO 5 or Class 100
To reach ISO 5 cleanliness standards requires the use of an ISO
8 anteroom followed by an ISO 7, ISO 6 before entering an ISO 5
cleanroom. Though this is the theoretical model, it may not be
practical for an ISO 5 softwall cleanroom. To overcome the
rigorous requirements, two or three additional softwall
cleanrooms can be added to the ISO 5 cleanroom.
There are specific standards regarding the airflow for an ISO 5
softwall cleanroom, which is a major factor in accomplishing its
classification. The standard is that the airflow must be
unidirectional from a set of HEPA filters located in the ceiling
grid. This type of airflow requires the consumption of much more
air. If the size of the room is less than eight meters, then
horizontal airflow is permitted. The number of filters and air
handling units make the airflow required much more expensive.
The air exchange rate for an ISO 5 softwall cleanroom is 240 to
360 changes per hour.
ISO 6 or Class 1000
For a softwall cleanroom to be able to reach a classification of
ISO 6, it requires one or two airlocks prior to entry. The
number of airlocks depends on the room’s size, the types of
processes being completed, and the number of people in the room.
Though unidirectional airflow is recommended, it is not
necessary if the room is less than four to six meters wide. The
air exchange rate for an ISO 6 softwall cleanroom is between 90
to 180 changes per hour.
ISO 7 or Class 10,000
The ISO 7 is the most common class of cleanroom. They are widely
used in an assortment of industries including clinical
manufacturing, electronic components, and the nutraceutical
industry. An ISO 7 softwall cleanroom has an air exchange rate
of 30 to 60 per hour with 352,000 particles per cubic meter at
sizes of 0.5 μm.
ISO 8 or Class 100,000
An ISO 8 softwall cleanroom does not require the entering of an
airlock or previous chamber before entering the workspace. Some
ISO 8 softwall cleanrooms may have a gowning room depending on
the applications and type of work being completed. ISO 8
cleanrooms have an air exchange rate of 15 to 25 air changes per
hour. The less restrictive nature of ISO 8 cleanrooms makes them
flexible enough to be used for certain pharmaceutical
manufacturing, medical device manufacturing, and the automotive
The chart below shows the ISO standards for softwall cleanrooms
as well as their FS 209E equivalents.
Chapter Five – Industries that Use Softwall Cleanrooms
Softwall cleanrooms have become the norm for many industries due
to their low cost and the elimination of the need to restructure
the existing space. From pharmaceuticals to aerospace, softwall
cleanrooms are an essential part of assembling, testing,
examining, and certifying crucial components and systems.
Cleanrooms are a major part of the production and perfecting of
pharmaceuticals for general use. Pharmaceutical companies have
hardwall or modular cleanrooms for the testing and mixing of
ingredients. Under certain conditions, it is necessary to have a
special environment to act as mixing labs that do not
necessarily require a classification lower than ISO 7. The wall
consistencies of softwall cleanrooms are ideal to fit the
requirements with their easy to install filtration systems and
The demands of the plastic industry can change rapidly, whether
it is producing poly bags or manufacturing medical devices. The
flexibility of softwall cleanrooms makes it possible to quickly
shift the focus of production to meet the increased demand.
Softwall curtains make it possible to expand the workspace of a
softwall cleanroom and reconfigure it to meet the needs of a
The small footprint of softwall cleanrooms makes it possible to
fit them into a limited workspace and be streamlined to fit the
needs of the work to be completed.
With the legalization of cannabis use, the federal government
has established standards for the production and synthesizing of
cannabis in controlled conditions. A central aspect of the
process is the use of softwall cleanrooms that provide an
environment for the manufacture of medical grade cannabis. The
FDA has stipulated that softwall cleanrooms for the manufacture
of cannabis must meet an ISO 5 or ISO 7 classification. These
classifications ensure that manufacturing processes meet the
necessary quality and safety certification requirements
including the safety of workers.
E-liquid and e-cigarette manufacturing needs federal regulations
regarding their production processes. The American E-Liquid
Manufacturing Association has established a set of standards
regarding the manufacturing of e-liquids that specifies the use
of food preparation requirements. The FDA stipulates that
e-cigarettes be manufactured using cleanrooms.
Since the demand for e-liquids is rapidly changing, softwall
cleanrooms are an ideal environment for processing the raw
materials for the safety of workers and the quality of the
product. The fact that e-liquid production only necessitates an
ISO 7 or ISO 8 environment makes softwall cleanrooms the right
Semiconductor Industry Uses
The semiconductor industry requires flexible space for the
assembly and testing of its products. In many instances, the
necessary workspace can spread across the assembly floor to
provide the needed workstations and part storage. The many
processes require cleanrooms with an ISO 5 to ISO 7
classification to meet the particulate count needed to create
the exceptionally clean working environment.
As part of the special conditions for semiconductor
construction, special dark curtain areas are necessary for UV
inspections. The flexibility of softwall cleanrooms makes it
possible to turn any space into a UV examining area with the
addition of dark curtains.
Chapter Six – Benefits of Softwall Cleanrooms
The traditional image of a cleanroom is a secluded part of a
technical, medical, or pharmaceutical company that is restricted
to qualified and trained personnel. In most cases, this
conceptualization involves a sealed hardwall room with a single
entrance that is hygienically clean. Though this is a
traditional view, such cleanrooms are very expensive and require
detailed planning for their construction.
Many industrial operations would enjoy the convenience of such
well-constructed facilities, but their cost is prohibitive and
may not be necessary for a company’s operations. In the majority
of cases, a controlled workspace with specific standards is
sufficient to meet the demands of production.
Softwall cleanrooms are widely used and contaminant free
environments that have to be carefully chosen. During the
selection process, it is essential to check industry standards
and recommended practices for an application, practice, or
process to ensure the proper use and implementation of a
Softwall cleanrooms have rapidly become an essential part of
industrial operations that require a clean workspace but not one
that has exceptionally high particulate requirements.
Softwall Cleanroom Benefits
Softwall cleanrooms require fewer materials and tools to
construct. In a short time, a small crew of workers can have a
softwall cleanroom up and operable, which further lowers its
cost. Though softwall cleanrooms can be produced quickly and
assembled just as fast, they still have the capabilities to
provide a controlled environment without compromising quality or
As a company’s budget requirements change, softwall cleanrooms
can be maintained and configured to meet the shift in costs and
demands. Since softwall cleanrooms have the architectural design
and engineering completed in advance of installation, their
costs are substantially less.
Though softwall cleanrooms have softwalls and tube supports,
they still have the same durability that is required of heavy
equipment that is part of production. The alloyed aluminum or
steel supports are rugged and capable of withstanding the
demands of a highly efficient production operation. The clear
plastic walls are made of materials that resist contaminants and
are easily cleaned. The strength of the materials are not
damaged by temperature or humidity and meet the stringent
standards required of all cleanrooms.
This aspect of softwall cleanrooms is one of the reasons that
they are enjoying such popularity. A softwall cleanroom can be
configured to fit into any space regardless of the size of the
space. Softwall cleanrooms can be as small as 4x4x8 with all of
the necessary components to meet ISO requirements.
Additionally, as the demands of a company’s applications and
production changes, softwall cleanrooms can be expanded or
contracted to meet the changing conditions.
When space is limited, it is necessary to have a compact and
flexible cleanroom that can adapt and fit the conditions. A
softwall cleanroom is a fit anywhere and go anywhere type of
equipment that can easily accommodate any environment. As a
company grows, its softwall cleanrooms will grow with it.
When a hardwall cleanroom is being planned, it requires a team
of experts, technicians, designers, and construction workers to
install all of the elements to meet the room’s ISO
classification. In the case of softwall cleanrooms, a company
can provide a cleanroom manufacturer with the necessary
dimensions and configuration and have a softwall cleanroom
installed in a few hours. All of the planning and preparation
has been completed by the manufacturer. They simply take the
existing conditions and adapt the softwall cleanroom to fit
Quality and Consistency
Although there may be variations between softwall cleanrooms,
every softwall cleanroom is guaranteed to perform up to its
established standards regardless of the circumstances. The
factor of dependability is one of the major selling points for
softwall cleanrooms. Every manufacturer stands behind the
quality of their products and the ISO classifications of their
softwall cleanrooms designs.
A softwall cleanroom is a confined controlled space with a
metal frame, clear panel walls, an entrance, high efficiency
particulate air (HEPA) filters, and exceptional lighting that
is designed to provide a contaminant and particulate matter
The standard sizes of softwall cleanrooms range from 4 feet by
4 feet up to 24 feet by 36 feet. The flexibility of softwall
cleanrooms makes it possible to design and create multiple
configurations and sizes depending on customer needs.
Softwall cleanrooms have multiple uses due to their ability to
be portable, small size, and having the capability to fit into
confined or limited spaces.
Softwall cleanrooms have been increasing in popularity for
several years due to their lower cost and flexibility. They
are tent like, lightweight, and easy to assemble.
The most important criteria for softwall cleanrooms to meet
are the requirements for their ISO classification. The design
of softwall cleanrooms does not make it possible for them to
meet the highest ISO standards since they are not capable of
the type of tight seal found in rigid and hardwall cleanrooms.
