Gerbig Engineering introduces beam extrusion


Addition to its modular hardwall and softwall cleanroom systems

Gerbig Engineering, a US specialist in cleanroom design, manufacturing and installation has introduced a beam extrusion that may be added to its modular hardwall and softwall cleanroom systems.

The new extrusion supports the 7.5in joist extrusion and also connects to the 10in extrusion. It allows softwall cleanrooms to be built up to 24ft clear span without an intermediate support post.

“This new beam allows manufacturers to use cleanroom space more efficiently,” said Tony Lema, sales director at Gerbig Engineering.

“Support posts can create significant space utilisation and workflow issues; now modular or softwall cleanrooms can be built with fewer support posts.”

Burnsville, Minnesota-based Gerbig Engineering will design and build high efficiency and economical cleanrooms that range from Class 10 to Class 100,000. The company supplies cleanrooms to the medical, microelectronics, pharmaceutical, semi-conductor, biotechnology and healthcare industries.
