RealWall and LiteBarrier reusable walls exceed ICRA Class IV requirements when they are installed properly.

Exceeds ICRA Class IV Requirements

ICRA Class IV temporary containment

ICRA (Infection Control Risk Assessment) guidelines are used to prevent environment-associated infections in healthcare facilities during any construction or renovation project within patient-occupied or sensitive spaces. Both STARC RealWall™ and LiteBarrier™ systems offer airtight containment barriers, including negative air capability, for infection control professionals and contractors, that exceed ICRA Class IV requirements.

Airtight Construction, Built-In

STARC’s panels exceed ICRA Class IV protocols, with no extra taping or tools required. The anodized aluminum frame has integrated tongue and groove seal elements that lock one panel into the next, eliminating the risk of contaminants exiting the construction zone. When installed using high-capacity negative air machines, our panels with closed-cell foam rubber gaskets maintain negative air pressure within acceptable requirements*.

STARC temporary wall systems can be easily disinfected using water or solvent-based cleaners and disinfectants. And our negative air panels filter out harmful dust particles and pathogens, making STARC the ideal choice for any area of a hospital including operating rooms, NICUs, isolation rooms, urgent care centers, lobbies, outpatient surgical centers, clinics, and doctors’ offices.

*Air flows in the desired direction when supported and connected to negative air machines.
