Clean the Air Students and Faculty Breathe.

The quality of the air we breathe is critical to our health. Historically, the focus on air quality centered around outdoor pollution and irritants. Today, the visibility on indoor air quality (IAQ) is far more intense.

The White House Office of Science and Technology (OSTP) recently launched the Clean Air in Buildings Challenge, a critical step towards improving the air we breathe indoors. The Challenge provides initial public guidance towards actively improving indoor air quality.

These recommendations are just the beginning of heightened awareness and future regulations surrounding the importance of Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) as it pertains to COVID and many other airborne pathogens, allergens and pollutants.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends in-room air cleaning as part of their action plan for IAQ connected to the Healthy Building’s Challenge and ESSER funding is available to help schools make this essential need a reality – talk to our team today if you need assistance making this happen!

At SBI we’ve partnered with Omni CleanAir, leaders in portable air filtration for over 30 years, to help support the schools and universities throughout the nation with indoor air purification.

Improving air quality in under-ventilated spaces and legacy buildings doesn’t have to be a massive undertaking. Louisiana State University deployed more than 550 portable OmniClean air filtration devices across campus in less than 12 weeks (including product selection, rigorous testing, through full installation). After testing multiple air purification solutions, the team selected portable OmniClean air purification systems featuring a True HEPA filter rated at 99.99% removal efficiency for 0.3 micron-sized particles.

OmniClean solutions are powerful, portable, and proven in K-12 and university spaces.

The Montessori Schools of Upper West Manhattan saw a decrease in the spread of viruses and illnesses, including COVID-19 cases, in the Fall of 2020 after working with OmniCleanAir to implement machines in each common area and classroom.

“Although, we did have our cleaning staff come and disinfect a couple times a week, we were relying on our ventilation system from Omni CleanAir to keep us safe, it was the most scientifically minded precaution then and remains to be.”

OmniClean’s design isn’t just sleek, quiet, and practical — it’s proven to work. Air quality is immediately improved through a tested four-stage system.

The process begins with a prefiltration of all untreated air in the room through the 360-degree air intake. The powerful MERV 11 prefilter catches large particles including pollen, dirt, hair, smoke, pet dander, and more.

The air then travels into a sealed UVC chamber where Safe Ultraviolet Radiation Exposure, or SureUVC, exposes all untreated air in the room to high intensity, close contact Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI). This inactivates viruses and bacteria, containing the energy so no person or material is ever exposed to dangerous UVC, allowing our machines to continually operate.

The IEST Certified True HEPA filter rated at 99.99% removal efficiency then removes bacteria, virus carriers, mold, and other ultrafine particles from the air as it passes through. Following this, an activated Carbon Filter captures odors.

The clean air is then delivered to the room. The machine is moving air through it at a rapid rate, supporting a full change of the air in the room every 10 minutes.  The CDC recommends at least six air changes per hour (ACH) which corresponds to an air change every 10 minutes.

With a variety of airflow capacity models, OmniClean is bringing maximum flexibility to all shapes and sizes of educational environments.  Each model available with or without SureUVC

Change is in the air. Get in touch with an indoor air quality expert today and see how OmniClean can transform your commercial space.
