Wherever healthcare facilities are built or modernised, they create a challenge for clients, architects and planners. Strict hygiene regulations must be observed, while the building must be functional and aesthetically attractive.
The selection of the optimum ceiling system depends on the use of the room. Whilst hygiene is of paramount importance in operating theatres and intensive care units, sound protection and room acoustics are needed in corridors and foyers. In sanitary areas and kitchens, the ceiling also needs to withstand high humidity.
Clean Room - ISO Classification
Clean rooms are essential for medical research and treatment. They enable different parameters, such as bacteria, temperature, humidity and pressure to be exactly controlled. The air purity classification according to DIN EN ISO 14644 is the most well-known standard. It states the maximum number of particles in the ambient air and divides the cleanrooms into classes from ISO 1 to ISO 9, with class 1 being the highest specification for air purity.
