Protecting our Children from Airborne Pathogens
Adding increased levels of fresh air and cleaning recirculated air not only benefits children, but provides a safer, healthier, and more productive indoor environment for teachers and staff.
School systems in all types of geographies trust Filtration Group Products to provide a clean, safe and productive environment for our next generation and those teaching them. Regardless of the local climate, we have products to achieve the Indoor Air Quality levels needed by the students and Total Cost of Ownership demanded by the school board.
Statistics state that at least 50% of our nation’s 115,000 schools have been indoor air quality issues. Proper ventilation and maintenance throughout the school year is critical for student and staff health concerns. Lack of proper air filtration is one of the leading causes for illness, lack of concentration and fatigue resulting in lower grades and a higher amount of missed days.
Make Indoor Air Quality in your school a priority today and keep students and teachers in the classroom by selecting the right filter and maintenance program.

DID YOU KNOW…
The average adult inhales the equivalent of 15,000 or more quarts of air each day. Children breathe more air relative to their body weight than adults and are therefore more susceptible to getting sick from breathing poor quality air.
According to a Berkeley Lab study, the aggregate health consequences of poor IAQ are as significant as those from all traffic accidents or infectious diseases in the U.S.
Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV), is a standard that rates the overall effectiveness of air filters. The higher the MERV rating the finer the filtration which equates to fewer dust particles and other airborne contaminants passing through the filter.
Air Hygiene plays a role in protecting student and faculty
By introducing increased levels of fresh outdoor air into the school, stale, potentially pathogen-laden air is exhausted out. By continually changing the air within the school, you can dramatically reduce the number of pathogens in the air.
