Quinton House School combats Coronavirus with game changing UV-C LED sanitising units by British manufacturing company
Called AIR by Atmos-Clear, these compact, portable, and safe devices have been installed in classrooms throughout the school to effectively ‘clean the air’ and make the school environment as safe as possible students returning to face-to-face learning.
Quinton House School is a forward-thinking co-educational independent school that is focussed on bringing innovative products to its students. Based in Northamptonshire, it has 392 pupils who learn in a beautiful, listed building which dates back to the 12th century.
In preparation for re-opening after the latest coronavirus lock-down, Quinton House has purchased AIR by Atmos-Clear UCV-LED air sanitising units for its classrooms as an extra layer of safety to the coronavirus risk mitigation routines already in place – and in addition to making the school environment as comfortable and safe as possible for teachers, staff, pupils, and parents.
How AIR works
Small and portable, the AIR units are proven to destroy 99.999% of all airborne and surface bacteria and viruses (including SARS-CoV-2) and will be used in the school’s classrooms to create a completely sanitized room environment and bring confidence to its pupils and teachers.
Once plugged in via a wall socket the units work by silently pulling dirty air into the unit through side vents in its base.
The air is then treated with ultra-violet germicidal irradiation using proven UVC-LED technology which destroys the DNA of microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, mold and fungi, rendering them ‘disrupted’ and unable to reproduce.
The air that is then pushed out of the unit is not only clean air, but continually ‘cleaning’ air, as the disrupted DNA latches on to live DNA and continues the chain reaction - killing airborne and surface viruses, bacteria, mold and fungi to create a completely sanitized environment.
