Metrology Laboratory Enclosures
Enclosed metrology lab rooms are specifically designed to protect CMM measuring machines and similar equipment from the altering effects of outside particles and debris. Since the equipment used within metrology labs is susceptible to damage, these machines must be only used within protected areas such as an enclosure or cleanroom specifically dedicated to metrology applications.
Modular lab enclosures from Cleanrooms By United comply with all metrology application specifications and ISO standards. Metrology lab considerations include calibration, mass, gauge, physical parameters, electrical processes, and customized specifications based on your project requirements.

Metrology Laboratory Enclosures for CMM & Critical Instrumentation Devices
A coordinate measuring machine (CMM) is a device used in manufacturing and assembly processes to test a part or assembly against the design intent by precisely recording the target's X, Y, and Z coordinates.
CMM equipment and similar devices are typically quite large and heavy and often cannot fit through standard doorways. Modular CMM rooms from Cleanrooms By United allow the enclosure to be 95% built before the CMM is put in place. Once the CMM is positioned, the final wall is installed to complete the CMM enclosure.
Modular Metrology Enclosure Advantages
At Cleanrooms By United, we manufacture state-of-the-art prefab metrology laboratory enclosures produced to your exact specifications. Our modular metrology enclosure design experts will work with you to create a facility that incorporates your company’s unique design needs. Additional benefits include:
- Sound dampening
- Fire protection
- Modular flexibility and versatility
- Quality assurance
Metrology Lab Enclosure Options
Depending on the environmental level of protection your processes require, we offer numerous options to customize your metrology enclosure. We provide complete design assistance to ensure that all temperature and humidity requirements are met and maintained. A dedicated HVAC unit is typically utilized to monitor and maintain temperature and relative humidity, if applicable.
Large Roll Up Doors
Large roll-up doors are available with commercial-grade steel or high-speed vinyl systems. High-speed vinyl roll-up doors are ideal for most applications, allowing a standard 10’ x 10’ door to be opened and closed in less than 10 seconds. Since metrology lab rooms typically require personnel access, all entry/exit doors are provided with Grade 2 lever locksets and hydraulic closures.
High-Quality Wall & Electrical Options
Our standard metrology enclosure walls feature a vinyl-clad finish; walls can be upgraded to high gloss painted aluminum. All vertical raceways are UL classified and provide a flush interior surface for electrical outlets, CAT5 phone and data wiring, or a service chase to house DI water, compressed air, or nitrogen.
Metrology Laboratory Industrial Applications
Metrology lab enclosures are designed to protect highly sophisticated equipment such as CMM equipment from the harmful effects of dirt, debris, and contaminants. Industries that utilize metrology enclosure rooms include:
- Medical device manufacturing
- Electronics manufacturing
- Pharmaceutical compounding
- Technological manufacturing
- Oil & gas production
Metrology Rooms Provide Advanced Protection
The primary purpose of metrology rooms is to protect your coordinate measuring machines and other sensitive devices. Our cleanrooms are temperature controlled, providing insulation for cooling and heating. They also prevent contamination, moisture, and other environmental conditions from damaging products or machinery.
Quick & Efficient Metrology Room Construction Process
Unlike traditionally built rooms, our modular metrology enclosures are constructed without the mess of drywall dust and the facility disruptions caused by continuous cutting, sawing, and hammering. Most metrology rooms are built onsite in about 7-10 days, allowing you to keep up your current operations and maintain production with limited downtime.
Metrology Laboratory Rooms Provide Convenient Mobility
When the time comes to update your CMM equipment or relocate it to another facility, our modular metrology rooms can be disassembled and reconstructed in the same layout, reconfigured, or expanded to a larger size. The versatility and extended life of our metrology enclosures provide additional ROI.
Other benefits of a modular metrology enclosure include:
- Sound dampening to quiet the noise from the machine
- Fire protection to protect expensive equipment
- Versatile and flexible with a modular design
- Demonstrates quality assurance for customers
- Customizable to meet your needs
Metrology Lab Design Options
Due to the sensitivity and stringent performance of CMMs and similar equipment, metrology rooms from Cleanrooms By United are built with 4” insulated UL-classified composite panels that function as a thermal barrier and provide effective sound dampening.
Tall walls are a common requirement for metrology rooms, as the “bridge” on large machines can be as high as 16’ and therefore need additional accessibility for maintenance. We’ve manufactured metrology rooms as tall as 30’ high, complete with temperature and humidity controls, viewing windows, and large roll-up doors for material access.
