Duets Direct™ Clean Room Manufacturing Ensures Consistent, Highest Quality ADA and Engraving Substrates
June 10, 2015
Cannon Falls, MN—June 10, 2015—Duets Direct™ by Gemini offers a superior manufacturing environment in its state-of-the-art Class 10,000 clean room plastic extrusion and lamination facility. With this specification standard in place, Duets Direct manufacturing operations maintains 1/100th or less airborne particulate than found in standard room air. This climate-controlled environment features automation-controlled temperature and humidity, practically eliminating any risk of dust, debris or other contaminants from entering the clean room—ensuring the highest quality of ADA and engraving signage substrate.
With constant, precise airflow, the virtually contaminant-free clean room guarantees Duets Direct ADA and engraving stock cools evenly and cleanly, maintaining a consistently stress-free and flat product. Regardless of outdoor weather conditions, the clean room remains at a constant temperature and humidity level. To ensure additional protection, all employees wear clean room suits, including properly fitted booties and a bouffant cap.
In addition to manufacturing in a clean room, Duets Direct stores all its finished substrates in temperature- and humidity-controlled distribution centers. This provides optimal environmental conditions to deliver a clean and flat product.
“Duets Direct maintains full control over the entire manufacturing process beginning with its clean room plastic extrusion and lamination facility and continues all the way through manufacturing to shipping to the end customer,” said Dave Schmitt, VP of Engineering, Gemini. “We ensure our substrate is manufactured to the highest level of quality and stays that way until it reaches our customers.”
In addition to clean room manufacturing, Duets Direct selects only the best raw material component and equipment suppliers who are recognized and known for their premium quality throughout the industry. All equipment is designed and engineered for a single specific purpose without compromise.
“We’ve selected best-in-class suppliers for our raw material components because we believe in providing our customers with only the best. We have pushed the manufacturing envelope in terms of material, equipment and process. Plus, our operators are committed to manufacturing a superior product,” added Schmitt.
