Mechanical Seal Doors for High Containment Facilities

PBSC's air pressure resistant mechanical seal doors offer high level containment for laboratories and cleanrooms. The doors create a reliable airtight barrier with a sturdy, but pliable seal, which is compressed against the doorframe.
Mechanical Seal Doors
The mechanical seal does not rely on compressed air to form a sealed closure. Therefore, the doors provide effective seals, even power loss.
The product features a user-friendly design using a steel arm to press the door into the seal. The mechanism is fixed onto the doorframe, to avoid adding extra weight to the door itself. The mechanical seal door requires a raised threshold to form an unbroken seal. Where a flush threshold is needed, PBSC's pneumatic sea doors can be used instead.
PBSC's mechanical seal doors are an effective solution for BSL3 or BSL4 laboratories, and other applications that necessitate a high level of containment. The raised threshold means that the mechanically sealed doors are best suited to low traffic areas, where wheeled carts are not required.
