Get premium indoor air safety technology for schools.

Real-time protection for children, teachers, and staff from airborne viruses, pathogens, and allergens.

Protect Our Future Generation

The quality of air in the developed world is in crisis, and nowhere are the effects of poor indoor air more apparent than in the health and development of children in our schools, kindergartens, and creches. Even worse is that parents, staff, and children haven’t had any choice regarding the quality of the air inside the classroom — until now. VIRUSKILLER™ makes indoor air safety in schools as easy as A,B,C.

Schools 1

The air in our schools is nothing less than a public health crisis.

Increased understanding of the health risks, reduced mental performance, and related absenteeism linked to poor indoor air quality is drawing attention to the importance of providing  students and staff with clean, safe indoor air.

13.8m

There has been a steep rise in cases of asthma, which is exacerbated by indoor air pollutants and allergens. In 2013, US schoolchildren aged 5-17 missed 13.8 million days of school due to asthma 1,2, meaning missed learning opportunities and poorer academic outcomes than those of their peers.

85%

Approximately 85% of schoolchildren are exposed to particulate matter concentrations higher than those considered safe by the World Health Organization for the prevention of cardiovascular-respiratory diseases.3

1ppm

Only 1 part per million of additional carbon monoxide in a school can cause a 3.79% increase in absenteeism4. Schools in urban areas — in particular, those located near busy roads — are exposed to significantly higher levels of indoor air pollution.5
Schools 2

Healthy
students

Schoolchildren are more susceptible to illness and require higher volumes of air for growth, development, and physical activity6. VIRUSKILLER™ provides clean, healthy air to learners of all ages and the teachers and staff who support them.

Schools 3

Fresh air
everywhere

Many schools in urban areas face extreme levels of outdoor air pollution7, which means classrooms and facilities are riddled with toxic pollutants. VIRUSKILLER™ takes control of the airflow in school spaces, neutralizing harmful gases and VOCs.

Schools 4

Safer learning environments

Poor ventilation and indoor pollutants can impact learners’ academic outcomes8. VIRUSKILLER™ safely decontaminates the air, removing pathogens in a single air pass. Healthy kids means better performance and less illness-related absenteeism9.

Schools 5

Reduce cross-contamination

The COVID-19 pandemic has increased public awareness about indoor air safety. VIRUSKILLER™ deactivates airborne viruses that spread disease in real-time, helping to guard against cross-contamination between children, staff, and parents.

We Share Clean Air

Welcome to the family

We’re spending more time inside, but instead of being safe from pollutants, we’re more exposed than ever. Indoor air is on average two to five times more polluted than the air outside11 — yet despite greater awareness of airborne diseases, we continue to share the same contaminated air.

Embrace clean air technology and bring fresh air back inside and join the community that is committed to turning the tables on poor indoor air.
