COMMENTS

The bubble room is pressurized which keeps much of the dust from intruding into our office space but you cant keep it all out I carry a fair amount in on my clothing, particularly when the router is running. After kicking around a couple of different solutions I settled on this enclosure. Filter cloth is glued to the interior of the frame and the ends are held on with hook & loop tape (helps seal the joints too.) The back frame is further split into two parts which makes gathering up all the cables at the back pretty simple they can feed through gaskets at the top and bottom depending on their destination. A tad SciFi channel it seems happy here in the bubble room and Im definitely glad dust is no longer building up in my new HP 4300 workstation.
