Controlled Environment Rooms

Controlled environment rooms designed as a research tool based on the demand and acceptance for constant reproducible tests.

Can-Trol Environmental Systems specializes in controlled environment rooms that are safe, effective, reliable and stable.

We provide all-in-one turnkey solutions to the often complex problem of precisely controlling the environment in a room or chamber. We proudly design, manufacture, install, commission and service these specialized environmental chambers across North America.

Features of Controlled Environment Rooms

Controlled Environmental Rooms validate the results of the experimental research. We can customize the features of our controlled environment rooms to suit your specific needs, application and budget. Professional engineer shop drawings are stamped and provided with every chamber to define the specifications of the room. We also offer a variety of warranties as well as 24-hour emergency service across North America.


  • Microprocessor temperature and relative humidity control
  • 24 hour temperature recording/monitoring in a single controller
  • NIST certified RTD temperature and humidity sensors.
  • Temperature/humidity Uniformity Mapping
  • Independent high and low temperature failsafe limits
  • Spring or rubber isolation on the compressor to minimize noise transmission

All controlled environment chambers are constructed to allow passage through normal doorways and are made from pre-moulded, modular panels that allow for future expansion and easy disassembly for relocation.

Fully Customizable

A variety of floor finishes are available, including steel, stainless steel, vinyl and aluminum tread plate.

Our controlled environment chambers can also include the following features:

  • Programmable ramp and soak control
  • Time controlled lighting cycles
  • Custom finishes for harsh environments
  • Touchscreen controls
  • Data logging
  • Seamless flooring
  • Keypad entry or card readers
  • Door ajar alarms
  • Automatic sliding doors
  • Motion sensing lighting
  • And more

An onsite training session is provided to demonstrate the user friendly control system of our controlled environmental rooms and chambers.

Client Reviews


Glen P. Kenny (PhD)

Full Professor and University Research Chair (Environmental Medicine) Director, Human and Environmental Physiology Research Unit University of Ottawa

It is my pleasure to provide a letter of reference for Can-Trol Environmental Systems. Can-Trol Environmental Systems has fabricated and installed a number of environmental chambers for my research unit over the past 25 years. More recently they installed a state-of-the-art chamber that houses the world’s only fast response air calorimeter – a system for making very rapid and precise measurements of the heat emitted by the human body. The service we receive by Can-Trol Environmental Systems is outstanding. They provide dependable and rapid service when repairs are required. This is especially important for my research unit given the high volume of research activities undertaking in my research unit.

Many international scientists visit my laboratory and or inquire about my systems. Without hesitation, I have always recommended to my colleagues Can-Trol Environmental Systems to construct and install a chamber that meets for their specific scientific needs.

Associate Professor & NSERC Northern Research Chair Department of Natural Resource Sciences Macdonald Campus, McGill University

Can-Trol Environmental recently designed and installed a walk-in environmental room for use as an animal holding facility in a McGill research center. I am pleased to report that I found Can-Trol to be very competent, capable and helpful at all stages of the project, from initial design through to installation and service.

As a biological researcher, I knew what I needed the room to do, but nothing about the mechanics and construction required. Can-Trol staff were patient, flexible and innovative through the process, and, in the end, created the room I needed. I am pleased to recommend Can-Trol Environmental for similar projects.
