Cleanroom Talk-Throughs

A clean room is a sterile and/or controlled environment, so making sure that all of the equipment in use is up to scratch is vital. This setting should be free from dust and other airborne contaminants, or at least contain a low level of these particles. One way to protect your room from these negative additions is through clean room windows.

Human beings are typically the largest single source of contamination in a clean room, but as their presence is inevitable, it’s important to have procedures in place on entry and exit to ensure that the spread is kept as minimal as possible. These protocols allow the rooms to be kept constantly clean and prevents the spread of bacteria throughout the room in question. This is where you may want to consider how your cleanroom communications are set up, guaranteeing an effective strategy gives your confidence in your output.

Not only is a clean room intercom vital, but workers are also asked to wear special apparel to trap human hair, human skin flakes, pollen, mould etc. We know it might not sound too appealing of a process on the outside, but these protocols all have to be met to ensure that the people inside these facilities do not spread harmful aspects of the human body through a clean room communication system or otherwise.

In light of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of these dangers has become even more apparent. A greater emphasis than ever (and rightly so) has been placed on the importance of cleanrooms. By keeping conditions as clean and hygienic as possible with the help of a clean room window, you can practice the very best standards which makes any visitors or people inside at ease with the standards you are setting. Moreover, you will minimalise the risk of spreading disease and viruses via surfaces or through the air, which sounds like a win-win to us!

A clean room also presents challenges in communicating with the outside world, which is what our clean room window solutions look to tackle head-on. A device known as a melaphone is specifically designed to facilitate the mutual exchange of information between the interior and exterior of a clean room, without compromising the sterility of the area. Essentially, a melaphone is a method of cleanroom communications that consists of a circular, transparent diaphragm, made of a tough, versatile plastic called polycarbonate, which is then reinforced with a stainless-steel mesh.

The transparent diaphragm can be used as a clean room intercom that transmits sound freely and clearly. This is all without the need for a loudspeaker and/or power supply, but, because air does not flow through it, it cannot transmit airborne contaminants.

Clear communication into your cleanroom

Diaphragms are available in large and small diameters, so you can take your pick over which size suits your requirements best. These sizes can easily be accommodated in a range of clean room settings for your convenience. Even in smaller diameters, this clean room intercom system offers a high degree of vision, so that workers outside the clean room environment can see those inside, and vice versa, and work safely.
