Pneumatic seal APR doors provide the highest possible airtight containment in applications involving high traffic, wheeled equipment or large animals. The doorframe is flush with the floor eliminating the trip hazard inherent in mechanical seal doors.
The seal around the perimeter of the door is inflated by compressed air against a wrap-around doorframe and provides excellent resistance to leakage up to pressure differences of 8" w.g and can be operated using an existing medical-grade compressed air system.
These doors are available in polished stainless steel, powder-coated low carbon steel, aluminum or phenolic resin.
APPLICATIONS — PNEUMATIC SEAL APR DOORS AT WORK
Pneumatic seal doors are used primarily in high containment and high traffic situations where air leakage cannot be permitted, such as bio-hazard laboratories (BSL3, BSL4, BSL3-Ag and BSL4-Ag), pharmaceutical laboratories and medical clean rooms.
The seal allows high containment during decontamination and fumigation processes in clean room facilities and laboratories. The frame can be supplied to seal onto cast concrete walls, stud partition walls and block works walls.
