SCHOOL LEARNS THE BENEFIT OF FRESH AIR

Camfil worked with a secondary school in northwestern England to help improve the indoor air quality for students during their critical exam period. The school got Camfil air purifiers to use in their gymnasiums where exams were given. 

THE ABC'S OF HVAC IN SCHOOL BUILDINGS

Schools and other educational facilities present unique problems to designers and HVAC practitioners. Most schools are diverse structures with different requirements for classrooms, gymnasiums, locker rooms, cafeterias and auditoriums. University campuses house many different types of buildings with varying air quality requirements on a larger scale. The quality of the air is measured by temperature and humidity, and by the concentration of particulates and gaseous contaminants. Adverse health effects from poor indoor air quality, documented in educational facilities, range from annoyance and respiratory irritation to acute or chronic illness. When classrooms are properly controlled for comfort, and are free of excessive contaminants, the learning environment is enhanced and becomes more productive.

BENEFITS OF BETTER AIR QUALITY IN EDUCATIONAL FACILITIES

  • Reduced absenteeism for students and staff
  • Reduced building deterioration and improved energy efficiency
  • Reduced outside air ventilation requirements
  • Reduced liabilities

And, most importantly, you can protect students -- one of the important investments in our future.

PT City range

City air purifiers make the grade

City is a range of patented air purifiers with the most efficient HEPA filters on the market.

These units are designed to supplement your existing ventilation system and give you reduced energy costs, more efficient production and a healthier work environment with less dust and fewer harmful particles. Camfil air purifiers can make the air feel easier to breathe. Poor air quality affects both the health of the personnel and their performance. Bacteria, dust, viruses and harmful particles in the air can cause itchy eyes, headaches and blocked nasal passages. And it can even give rise to asthma and irritation of the respiratory tract. Camfil air purifiers clean the air and effectively combat these problems. What you get is improved work performance, reduced absence due to illness and air that feel easy to breathe.
