PortaFab has added a new lightweight framed wall system to its FabLine series. The Fabline Framed LT series offers similar functions to the firm’s current product line, but it weighs and costs less.

Designed for microelectronic and nanotechnology applications that require extensive bulkheading around tools, this system features vertical and horizontal members that are easily connected to each other. The design simplifies construction and provides airtight seals around equipment for minimum loss of room pressurisation. The US firm, based in Chesterfield, MO says the wall system offers several advantages, including high durability, design versatility and simplified installation.

The Fabline Framed LT features pre-engineered components that integrate with other FabLine cleanroom systems. The flexible design accommodates ¼in, ½in and 2in wall panels that typically consist of aluminum honeycomb core sandwiched between two aluminum sheets.

“The primary goal behind the development of the Fabline Framed LT wall system was to reduce the cost of our systems without sacrificing quality or functionality,” said Wayne McGee, President of PortaFab. “The new system costs less to manufacture than traditional systems and consequently allows us to design cleanrooms that are more cost effective.”
