Cleanliness is a critical factor in the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical, hospital, and diagnostic sector, Inclusive of warehouse clean-rooms and at the loading dock.

Each clean-room has a controlled level of contamination determine by the number of particles per cubic meter at specified particle sizes. Standards differ in each application, but pharmaceutical clean-rooms generally range between ISO 5, 6, 7 or 8. Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMPs) begin deep within the facility. Individual rooms are pressurised in a manner to suit the manufacture of the company. As each chamber is pressurised, it forces particulates into the hallways and ultimately out to the non-white areas like the loading dock.

Contamination control on the loading dock requires all dock levellers, doors and curtain walls to have almost hermetic seals. Also, the industry demands easy wash down capabilities for critical control points, such as the door openings and fabric walls.
