claire® xl - safety cabinet class II


claire® xl sets completely new standards for safety cabinets with the sum of all components and features – but especially due to the enormous size of the workspace. Although literally the “measure of all things” can still set limits in individual cases – these extra-large safety cabinets provide comfortable space and the necessary environment for most laboratory equipment and applications – with optimal protection for the experiment and for the user.

The claire® xl models have an extremely extended workspace for demanding applications. Total depth is 927 mm and the safe usable area has a depth of 745 mm. The workspace height is 824 mm at the front of the workspace and drops to 690 mm at the back wall. This means that laboratory equipment and most large-scale devices, used increasingly in the microbiological and pharmaceutical sector, can be operated under perfect aseptic conditions (product- and cross-contamination protection). With the 3-filter system this is especially possible in processes where an increased risk of exposition to hazards exists for the user. Combined personal, product and cross-contamination protection is e.g. required in handling of biological hazards (biological protection level 2–4) or of toxic or carcinogenic agents (e.g. cytostatics, antivirals and other highly active pharmaceuticals).


→ Premium Quality

The interior work space has a first-class and solid finish, is made entirely of stainless steel and safety glass, durable, resistant, virtually joint-free and easy to clean. All components, options or modifications of the safety cabinet are implemented by our qualified employees in the design and production department with the highest quality standards.

→ Size and weight

claire® xl offers plenty of space for your applications. As a result, the dimensions are correspondingly large. Therefore, weight and size should be kept in mind during planning and installation. The empty weight is between 550 and 650 kg, the width is 1185 mm and the height between 2.340 –2580 mm. Where possible, our partners’ service engineers will gladly assist you in assessing the installation options in some countries

→ Transport and installation

The dimensions become of great importance here as well. Transport and installation are organised by our autorised sales partner. An on-site control of the access course can be helpful. There are alternatives with claire® xl if direct access seems difficult. The safety cabinet is typically transported separated from the base stand. Additional disassembly up to the complete on-site build-up are also an option. Safety cabinets from Berner International meet the highest quality requirements and undergo a comprehensive test program before being delivered to the customer. We also offer intensive commissioning, maintenance and other services by our certified staff or our sales partners. From product development through production to commissioning in your laboratory and beyond - quality “Made in Germany”.
