As concerns about Air Quality in schools we are often asked about Pollution Air Filters and Pollution Reduction Solutions that can work in schools to reduce children’s exposure to air pollution.
We test air quality both outside and inside buildings including public spaces, offices, homes, and schools. Airclean’s basic Air Quality Tests measure levels of Particulate Matter (PM10 and PM2.5), Nitrogen Dioxide (NOx), and VOCs, which are all products of air pollution often caused by vehicles. As part of a basic air quality test we also measure Carbon Dioxide which gives an indication of fresh air supply in a building.
Outside of the school in areas such as playgrounds it is difficult to protect the children from vehicle pollutants. However we see opportunities and ideas that can be incorporated in playground design to improve the ingress of pollution via barriers / fences, enclosed areas and potentially filtered enclosures.
Inside the class room controlling pollution is much easier and Pollution Air Filter Technology can be used to reduce Particulate Matter and Harmful Gases to safe levels and Airclean offer a complete range of Pollution Filter Solutions that can work inside the classroom.
Airclean were approached by a South London Nursery School to help design a scheme to protect children and employees from the potential ingress of outdoor pollution being brought into the building. The Nursery School was located on a busy road with both NOx levels and Particulate Matter Levels that exceeded target limit concentrations from the local authority. Airclean helped achieve good air quality using recirculating and filtered supply air systems to achieve good levels of air quality within the school rooms.
