Creating a Safer Environment for Students, Faculty and Staff
COVID-19 has significantly impacted student learning across the nation. With face-to-face interactions spreading the virus, many educational institutions were forced to abruptly close their physical doors at the onset of the pandemic. Educators then launched remote learning curriculums in hopes of keeping their students, faculty and staff out of harm’s way.
As we learn more about the virus and how to better prevent spread, schools and universities are brainstorming inventive ways to get students back into the classroom. We recommend needlepoint bipolar ionization (NPBI®) technology, provided by Global Plasma Solutions which inactivates pathogens, in turn improving indoor air quality.
The patented NPBI technology creates ions like those found in nature and introduces them into a building’s airstream through existing heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. When the ions are pushed out into a room, they find and attach to particles in the air. Once particle clusters reach a certain size, they become more easily trapped by the HVAC system’s air filter.
The GPS-iMOD product, an example of NPBI technology suited to applications including schools and universities as well as health care and office buildings, helps reduce the number of particles and pathogens in the air. The system begins removing fumes and odors within 48 hours. It’s also energy-efficient: Customers report up to 30% in energy savings following installation, as the product reduces outdoor air intake and pressure loss by keeping HVAC coils clean.
