Sanitary Appliances

The only types of sanitary appliances found in clean rooms are production sinks, usually located in ISO Class 8 or lower clean rooms; hand-wash stations are usually located in changing areas or air locks. Appliances must be of a suitable design with clean lines, no sharp angles, and no recessed corners.

The materials of construction should be either stainless steel or ceramic, and all support fixings, water supply and waste pipework should be minimized.

Alternatively, many installations will adopt the philosophy of exposed frame sink supports with no cupboards. This encourages the avoidance of hidden traps, and lessens the likelihood of poor housekeeping due to the high visibility of the area. The joint between the appliance and any floor or wall surfaces should be clean, straight and filled with silicone mastic.

If taps are used to control water flow in hand-wash sinks, they should be elbow-or foot-operated, rather than by hand. Alternatively they may be actuated by photocells or other noncontact means.

Traps should be of the pop-up waste type, and fittings minimized where possible by using hospital-type mixer taps; or, preferably, actuated by an electronic sensor.
