PBSC’s cleanroom escape panel is also commonly known as a breakout panel, a service access panel, a cleanroom door, an escape door, BOP, or a kick out panel. It provides a quick escape and safe exit from a cleanroom or containment-controlled environment. It is often used as a removable window that can be easily removed for equipment access routes during planned shutdowns.

Innovation. Design. Quality

The escape panel is quick to remove and clearly marked. It takes approximately 6 seconds to entirely remove the lightweight panel providing a fast means of personnel escape when needed, (the acrylic panel can be refitted after removal). With a stainless steel assembly and pull handles, and with the choice of a pull or push design and the option of escape from both sides.

Option 1 Rebate – This is a complete frame assembly that comes with a satin-finished flange and a 5mm clear acrylic panel. It’s designed to be installed in front of an existing fire door and the panel is held securely within the flange by a rubber extrusion. Additionally, the extrusion comes with a removable lead that can be used in emergencies.

Option 2 Wraparound – This is a split frame assembly that comes with a 5mm satin-finished flange. It is designed to be installed within an existing wall space and comes complete with a 5mm clear acrylic panel. The panel is secured within the flange with a rubber extrusion that has a removable lead for emergency use.

Instructions for both options are available on a sticker attached to the acrylic panel.

The standard application includes a rebate frame designed for installation in front of a fire door. Custom solutions are available for doors that open through the escape panel.

The BOP, like all of PBSC’s architectural range, is designed for cleanroom applications with minimal visible fixings, a flush design, and high scratch and wear resistance. Available in either 304 or 316L stainless steel with a satin finish or a powder-coated construction.
