School Air Filtration

School Air FiltrationSchool air filtration is essential, as school children are particularly vulnerable to air pollution. Their breathing rates are higher in relation to their body weight, and their lung development has been shown to be directly affected by exposure to air contamination. Cost effective and mobile school air filtration systems are the ideal solution for providing clean air in schools through out the UK.

Commercial Air Filtration is specialised in providing the right solution for schools and works with School Boards & Estate Managers to specify the optimum solution for each school air filtration requirement.

Air Pollution Control in Schools

top of page ^

More then 1'000 schools in London are within 150 metres of a major road, and thus are being exposed to over 10,000 vehicles each day. Standard ventilation systems, particularly in combination with open windows, expose children in London schools to excessive amounts of traffic pollution. An IQAir mobile school air filtration system is individulally tested and certified to capture traffic pollution as well as common allergens, bacteria, viruses and other airborne contaminants.

School Ventilation Systems Integration

top of page ^

With so many of the UK’s schools, often with inadequate or no ventilation systems at all, providing clean air to our children is more challenging than ever. School building managers can implement school air filtration in the form of mesh filters in the ventilation system, but the filtration efficiency of these filters is very poor, and the maintenance required to maintain them high.

The IQAir range of school air filtration units are standalone, mobile air cleaning units which can be implemented directly in to a classroom - providing completely clean air to every pupil regardless of existing ventilation. The IQAir school air filtration units are cost effective and easily implemented.

The stand alone, mobile school air filtration units are designed to be deployed in a typical classroom, regardless of the school’s ventilation or heating system. These compact units can achieve significant air changes in a classroom whilst still remaining extremely quiet.

The IQAir school filtration systems can filter out:

  • Bacteria
  • Viruses
  • Pollen
  • Traffic Pollution
  • Dust
  • Gases
  • Chemicals

Clean Air for School Children

top of page ^

Increasing reports of asthma, which is one of the leading causes of absenteeism among school age children, have been directly linked to elevated air pollution levels. Poor air quality in schools directly reduces concentration, calculation ability and memory.

Providing clean air quality in schools presents unique challenges, the complex mix of indoor and outdoor air pollutants, and the health and comfort of students and staff. Commercial Air Filtration has extensive experience in providing effective mobile school air filtration solutions to address a wide variety of air pollution issues.

Air Filtration Systems for Schools

Large classroom sizes and high occupancy density together with the need for quiet operation, means most air filtration options for schools provide either ineffective performance or present schools and staff with unacceptable drawbacks.

IQAir has extensive experience in working with schools and government agencies to provide school air filtration technologies that significantly improve air quality without the need for sacrifices. A recent clinical trial has demonstrated that IQAir school air filtration units are able to reduce the amount of air pollution exposure for children and staff in classrooms by up to 95%. Such results are achieved in close co-operation with school administration and maintenance staff and involve a three-step process of: problem analysis, solution design and solution implementation.

Relying on 50 years of air cleaning experience, IQAir combines proven methodologies and advanced school air filtration technologies to provide air quality improvements previously thought impossible.

Chemicals in School Science Labs

chemicals in school science labs Learning science, including chemistry, is an important part of primary and secondary education. However, practical chemistry involves chemicals, some of which may be hazardous, particularly in the hands of young children. So how do we protect children and young people from chemicals in school science labs, while not denying them the fun of experiments and the useful experience it gives them?

School Asthma Epidemic in September

top of page ^

school asthma epidemic Back to school can be a difficult time for children suffering with asthma. There are four times as many childhood hospital admissions for asthma in September as at the start of the school holidays - often referred to as a school asthma epidemic. It has been recorded for several years in England. There are likely four main reasons for the September school asthma epidemic...

Schools' Exposure to Traffic Pollution

School's exposure to traffic pollution The UK has one of the highest rates of children with asthma in the world, and London, as I often have to point out here, has a particularly bad air pollution problem, compared to other European cities.

So, is there a link between asthma in children and air pollution? We’re going to get some answers. Researchers at Guy’s and St Thomas' Hospital, and King’s College, London, are studying children in Tower Hamlets, East London, who go to school near busy main roads. Childhood asthma is particularly bad in East London, with as many as 18% of kids being affected.

Pollution in School Causes Asthma

pollution in school causes asthma Children’s risk of asthma increases through a combination of being exposed to high levels of traffic-related air pollution at home as well as in kindergartens and schools.

The Keck School of Medicine at the University of California conducted a longitudinal study on respiratory health among children in 13 communities of Southern California. Researchers followed 2,497 children with no history of respiratory problems over three years.

Cognitive Development in Children Affected by Air Pollutants

top of page ^

cognitive development in children affected by air pollutants A study conducted by the Columbia University’s Center for Children’s Environmental Health found that prenatal exposure to air pollutants can affect cognitive development during childhood. The study found that children who were exposed in the womb to high levels of air pollutants known as ‘polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons’ (PAHs) scored 6.3% lower on cognitive tests than the less exposed children. The risk of being developmentally delayed was 2.9 times greater in children exposed to PAHs, than that of children who had lower prenatal exposure.
