Containing Infectious Contaminants with Negative and Positive Airflow Systems

Industrial climate control systems comprise two main categories of airflow systems to consider when trying to combat and contain infectious airborne contaminants: positive air pressure and negative air pressure clean rooms.

Typically found in medical settings, positive and negative pressure cleanrooms prevent the spread of infectious diseases and keep contaminants out of restricted or sterile spaces. These rooms are an essential part of research laboratories and medical facilities.
