Hello Melvin

 

for temporary rooms there is no defined pressure differential. The airflow direction will be the most important consideration and this should be air balanced correctly.

 

From standards such as ASHRAE they define differential pressure of 2.5Pa from isolation rooms. local standards should be checked. 

 

We have an application guide available from considerations of isolation room design

 

Thanks
