This technology pertains to a two compartment de-containment system with multi-layered airlock system, in addition to a third layer of de-containment alignment system. The third layer is used to temporarily separate off the containment systems from the manufacturing area. This process is used to move the walls of the de-containment system to accommodate larger objects. This includes three different building structures, two that move in and out air locked to each other. This system ensures that there are multiple layers of interior airlocks as the outer building structures move to re-align to the incoming size payload. Then the interior walls move into alignment, interlock with the outer walls, airlock, and the interior airlocks seal to allow the third interior airlock layer to release. The interior walls and the interior building structures are on tracks that move, and the interior buildings store themselves together within the same space when the airlock area needs to be smaller to move smaller parts through the airlock system faster.
