Children Spend 80% of their time indoors
Students and faculty deserve a comfortable and healthy environment in which to learn and teach. Children spend 80% of their time indoors which includes up to 7 hours a day in school. A wide range of environmental contaminants can affect the health and safety of students and faculty in any school environment. Children are more susceptible to air pollution because they breathe a greater volume of air relative to their body weight. To make matters worse, schools tend to be at a higher risk of poor indoor air quality because they can have 4 times the occupants as a regular office building for the same amount of floor space and generally classrooms have inadequate fresh air make-up.
Prolonged exposure to poor indoor air quality will result in serious health conditions such as asthma, shortened attention span, tiredness and other physical symptoms such as nausea, rashes and headaches. In addition, poor indoor air quality in schools is associated with increased student absenteeism by both students and faculty and has been proven to reduce student performance.
There are several known contaminants common in schools across the US which are a cause for concern and which can be controlled by the installation of a CosaTron Unit.
CosaTron Controls Common Contaminants
Common Contaminants found in schools include viruses, asbestos, formaldehyde, cleaning agents, mold spores & allergens. A CosaTron System will control these dangerous contaminants and provide a steady flow of fresh, recirculated air in any school environment.
