Guardtech Cleanrooms is assisting firms to achieve the highest operating standards possible in controlled environments.
A recent report in the journal Science suggested ventilation in buildings should be treated as critically as clean water has been since the Chadwick Sanitary Report in 1842, suggesting more needs to be done to combat airborne pathogens like COVID-19.
Guardtech’s Operations Director Conor Barwise has been building cleanrooms and laboratories for 15 years, is using his experience and knowledge in the areas of control, ventilation and filtration to help businesses across the UK.
He said: “As a design team, we have to be pretty flexible, adaptable and creative to think of solutions to our clients’ various controlled environment needs – but that’s a part of the job I relish.
“The world is so different now than it was two years ago – critical environments are more crucial than at any point in my time at Guardtech, and the report in Science has shown how much air quality is taken for granted.
“It’s great to be able to do our bit to help firms achieve a level of control in these tough times that ensures not only the safety of staff at work, but that whatever it is that they’re working on isn’t compromised.
“I would recommend any business with cleanrooms or laboratories to consider taking up a Guardtech Service Agreement to give them the peace of mind that their production environment will continue to meet the highest standards for operations, quality and safety.”
The company offers service contracts alongside every project it undertakes, but these annual contracts are not just limited to existing customers – any business that requires such support can take on a plan.The range of services it offers includes air velocity and volumetric flow rate measurement, room differential pressure testing, airborne particle counting, temperature monitoring, humidity measurements, light level measurement and noise level checks.
The scope of services also encompasses decontamination deep cleans to filter integrity testing, HVAC service and maintenance to monitoring system maintenance and gauge calibration.
If staff or product can be compromised in some way, Guardtech says, the firm can help businesses stay on top of it.
Guardtech Service Engineer Chris McGinn said: “We have a very diverse portfolio of service agreements with some great businesses doing some amazing things. There are a series of tasks that I tend to do at every site, but each new job always provides something new and intriguing to test, check or service.”
