What are PBSC’s Cleanroom Tranfer Hatches?

Our hatches which are among the best on the market, also known as a pass box, pass chamber, or pass through, help reduce the risk of physical movement or transfer of harmful bacteria and pressure loss when transferring equipment between different classification areas within cleanrooms or controlled environments. It accomplishes this by interlocking the doors so that only one can be opened at a time, which maintains room pressure and facilitates a quick transfer of goods between different grades of rooms.

Made from durable materials like phenolic resin, powder-coated steel, or polished stainless steel. Our hatches are designed to be easy to clean and maintain. This makes it great for passing products, equipment, or even paperwork between sterile/clean areas and non-sterile/dirty areas.

How does the cleanroom transfer hatch help the end user?

Our innovative use of materials and construction techniques make PBSC’s transfer hatches cost-effective for all manner of projects. Having no internal protruding or recessed areas in the design, thus preventing bacterial growth, allowing for complete sterilization during clean-down.
