The Integration and Assembly Areas of the David Florida Laboratory (DFL) are situated within three temperature- and humidity-controlled, high bay clean rooms of which High Bay 3 is the largest measuring 1,080 sq m (11,600 sq ft). When required, Class 1,000 or better clean room conditions can readily be made available. Each of the high bays are independently traversed by travelling bridge cranes. Access to the high bays is through security-controlled, air showers for personnel. A large loading bay with an overhead crane serves as the access point for all equipment entering the DFL. Two freight elevators provide access to the workshop and storage areas which are located in the basement.
