Improve air quality at school

Various studies have shown that poor air quality at school can adversely affect children’s learning performance. Unfortunately, in 80% of schools, the indoor environment is not healthy. It is therefore important to improve air quality at school.

Good air quality is especially important because of COVID-19
Now that all schools have started again, in view of the corona pandemic and the poor air quality in the school buildings, there is a lot of uncertainty among school staff, students and parents. This concerns, among other things, fear of spreading the virus in classrooms, teachers’ rooms and meeting rooms, with all the possible consequences.

Consequences of poor ventilation
Since at many schools, the ventilation systems are not in order and it is very expensive and time-consuming to adapt or expand them, all kinds of emergency measures are currently being taken. In many highschools and universities, physical lessons are being scrapped and / or partly moved to evenings and weekends. This increases the burden on teachers. Online lessons are often not enough to structurally convey the material in a good way. Students run the risk of incurring study delay.

A good air cleaner helps
From our many years of experience in combating bacteria, particulate matter and virus particles in schools in Scandinavia, we know that installing a good (mobile) air cleaner is a good and practical additional solution to improve air quality.

Our VisionAir Blue Line Microbe Free and the Pure Air Shield 3300 are a new generation of air cleaners that effectively tackle indoor air pollution.

  • The VisionAir Blue Line is tested by independent research institute VTT and validated by TNO
  • The VisionAir Blue Line can filter up to 99.95% of pollution, including the COVID-19 virus, from the air.
  • The Pure Air Shield is suitable for larger areas and due to its HEPA 14 filter, it can filter up to 99,995% of the pollution, including the COVID-19 virus from the air.
  • Air exchange at school provides a fresh and pleasant learning environment.
  • Air cleaning at school has a positive effect on productivity and absenteeism.
  • Reduces concentration problems, fatigue and headache, throat and nose complaints.
  • Energy efficient: heated and cooled air is well distributed in the room.

Causes of poor air quality at school

  • Noise (for example from busy traffic roads) is a reason to keep the window closed during the lessons.
  • Nasty, musty smells from the outside air but also from the students or poor ventilation.
  • Pupils are often sick and as a result they bring bacteria and viruses to school where they remain hanging in the air.
  • Air and heat loss can also be a reason to keep the window closed.
  • Schools, located along major traffic routes, suffer from (ultra) particulate matter due to an excess of exhaust gas emissions. You want to leave polluted air outside.

Obviously, sufficient fresh air and, particularly, healthy air are important for improving the air quality at school. This problem can be solved fairly easily through air cleaning.

Stale air at school

The air in school classrooms is often stale. This is caused by poor ventilation. When the air ‘stands still’ it becomes stale. Moreover, the pupils often bring all kinds of odours with them, such as sweat after gym and the scent of clothing that has been soaked in the rain. Most classrooms are overfull, which means there are plenty of potential ‘unpleasant odours’ that can pollute in the indoor air.
