Air Sanitization in Schools

UVC lights in schools

Schools have a duty to keep students and staff safe within their buildings, and the recent pandemic has proven that that includes their health. Sanitization measures have become a common procedure, and by installing supplementary air sanitization equipment inside of schools, schools can provide an additional level of protection against airborne viruses. 

Air Sniper offers a solution that is safe for 24/7 use, even as the schools are occupied by students and faculty. The Air Sniper solutions are flexible and easy to integrate into any facility, ensuring that your workspaces are safe. So, what can educational institutions do to ensure their air quality is sufficient, and that their air is safe? 

Supplemental Air Sanitization Equipment

One of the best ways for schools of all ages to deal with air quality concerns is supplemental air sanitization units. From small elementary schools to internationally recognized universities, equipment that utilizes UVC technology are making waves throughout the industry.

Why is Air Sanitization Growing in Popularity?

With the latest pandemic, governments, schools and individuals around the world have been forced to accept that unseen dangers do exist and can be as harmful as overt dangers. While efforts have been made across industries to reduce the risk of spreading diseases between customers and staff, some areas are harder to control. In particular, air filtration is woefully under-considered. 

Furthermore, the pandemic has brought increased awareness of other contaminants that linger in the air, and that the future could bring new or variant pandemics that we must be prepared for to avoid the complications that we’ve experienced the past year. As such, many industries have incorporated improving air quality as a part of their supplemental sanitization methods in order to protect against current and future viral and bacterial threats that may be present in the workspace.

What Are the Different Technologies of Air Sanitization

Traditionally, air filtration focused on trapping harmful, airborne microorganisms. This includes filtration standards like HEPA, which focuses on trapping all bacteria, above a certain size, in a random-fibre matting. This method has been successfully proven to work, but now it isn’t the only option available. 

UVC air sanitization is a relatively new technology. It was first discovered by NASA scientists near the end of the ‘80s and the beginning of the ’90s. As it was a result of experimentation and not a commercial improvement, it took a while to get off the ground as an established and effective air sanitization solution. UVC is recognized as an ASHRAE approved technology.

Which Supplemental Air Sanitization Method is Right for Your School?

While UVC may be a newer technology, independent testing results show that it is just as effective, if not more so, when fighting harmful airborne microorganisms like influenza. Plus, Air Sniper units, in particular, are sleek, well-designed and built to last.
