ISOPOD is a revolutionary new concept in modular cleanroom design and build. ISOPODs are high-performance controlled environments, which can be self-assembled and are fully customisable to best utilise the host room they are installed within.
Guardtech delivers high-performance custom cleanrooms and controlled environments for a wide range of life science industries and specialises in providing compliant solutions for the rigorous demands of the pharmaceutical industry.
Implementing a complete turnkey solution from design and construction, mechanical & electrical implementation, process utility connections all the way through to commissioning and ISO14644 validation.
Guardtech offers customised solutions for clients who are looking to create, improve, upgrade or relocate a critical environment, designing and installing cleanrooms for all budgets and applications, with products ranging from standard modular cleanrooms to bespoke full-scale multi-million-pound construction projects.
No matter the scale or complexity, Guardtech’s philosophy behind each project remains the same: a client-centred attitude with regular and transparent communication coupled with a flexible yet focussed work ethic.
Guardtech has also developed an innovative range of smaller-scale standardised modular hardwall and softwall cleanrooms – ISOPODs. These units can are available from stock and can be shipped worldwide for self-assembly or can be accompanied by an installation team that can erect them in a very short time frame.
ISOPODs are constructed from the same robust component used for modular cleanrooms, they can be upgraded with a wide range of accessories and offer clients a long-lasting flexible solution that can be extended, reconfigured and relocated.
Furthering their range of offsite construction options is CleanCube, a range of mobile cleanroom solutions; ranging from modular buildings, cabins, shipping containers and Luton vans all fully kitted out as plug & play cleanrooms that can be installed onsite, fully equipped and ready to use within the hour.
The CleanCube range provides a popular solution for client requiring additional long or short term lab or cleanroom use, where facility space is tight but external space is available. They are available as multi-module units for larger installations, and clients benefit from quick and precise offsite construction, resulting in short lead times, cost efficiencies and minimal and short onsite disruption.
