Modular Controlled Environment Rooms 

Thermmax:  Modular Controlled Environment Rooms

Modular Environmental Rooms are constructed from a flexible system of foamed in-place polyurethane panels. Surfaces are lined with corrosion-free metal finishes that are attractive and durable. The panels are locked together with camlock fasteners providing a tight vapor seal. Each panel is made with tongue and groove edges and uses a soft vinyl gasket for the seal. The non-hygroscopic insulation is foamed with non-CFC Freon gas and provides an overall U factor of 0.029 and R factor of 32. 

The final room assembly offers a fire-safe construction that is UL listed. Entrance doors are flush with the outside front wall and are provide with a brushed or chrome hardware finish. The internal safety release prevents anyone from being trapped inside the room. Observation windows, ramps, ports, and special floor finishes are standard options.

  • Factory mutual approval available on steel based panels
  • 10-Year Panel Warranty 

Finishes - Many panel finishes are available on steel and aluminum base metal skins:

  • Natural: Embossed or smooth aluminum, galvanized steel, or Galvalume
  • Coated: Mill applied baked acrylic enamels; white is standard and recommended but other colors are available on request.
  • Stainless Steel: 304 type with high polish or 2B finishes

Sizes - Standard and custom from small step-ins to large warehouses; modular design allows customer to determine the best fit. 

Thermmax Scientific Products | Air UnitAir Flow - Ceiling mounted plenums allow maximum floor space but still provide low noise, well distributed air patterns. Wall mounted vertical plenums utilizing full-ceiling air distribution ceiling system provide maximum air temperature uniformity and minimal stratification within the modular environmental room.

Refrigeration -  Copeland semi-hermetic condensing units with true proportional contol uses minimum energy and maximum contol stabilities; only NON-CFC Refrigerants are used. Five-year warranties are available. 

Redundant backup refrigeration systems are available options.

LEED Compliant construction available on request.
