Cleanroom Door Designs & Styles

Kwang’s broad portfolio of cleanroom door designs includes swing-out and sliding doors, automatic and manual doors, bi-parting double doors, high-speed roll-up doors, models pre-hung on rigid frames, fire-rated designs, and styles with full-length or partial windows.


Kwang Pharmaceutical Cleanroom Doors

Kwang’s BioSafe doors are medical-grade, USP-compliant, and compatible with all areas of the hospital, including operating rooms and surgical suites. The door is fabricated with continuous-seam welds to eliminate cracks and crevices where microbes colonize. The dual-pane window is mounted flush with the door for easy cleanroom wipe downs.


Cleanroom Door Assembly

Kwang’s door assembly includes an adjustable, heavy-duty aluminum closer that meets ANSI Grade-1 and ADA standards. The UL leak-rated design is equipped with a fully-concealed drop-down gasket that seals the bottom gap when the door closes, ensuring that room pressure is maintained on each side of the door.
