School Air Filtration
School 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
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
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.

Clean Air for School Children
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.
