We are pleased to announce that we have installed photocatalytic air purifiers in all our schools. Called ActivePure® Technology by Aerus, it was originally developed for NASA in 1990s for the Space Shuttle. In 2017, was inducted into the Space Technology Hall of Fame by The Space Foundation.
ActivePure “works by harnessing microscopic oxygen and water molecules in the air that then go through our purification units, which are equipped with an ActivePure honeycomb matrix. While inside the matrix, the molecules are transformed into friendly-yet-powerful oxidizers. As they’re released back into the air, these supercharged ActivePure molecules seek and rapidly destroy contaminants, fungi, mold and odor-causing bacteria – even ones that try to hide in hard-to-reach places.”
In independent third-party laboratory tests, ActivePure has been proven to destroy up to 99.99% of pathogens including SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that causes COVID-19), Avian influenza, E.Coli, MRSA, Norovirus, Staph bacteria, Candida, Swine Flu, Hepatitis, Legionella, HIV and more.
If you see this quiet little black box in your learning center, know that this Active Pure air unit is adding another layer of safety protection against the spread of COVID-19.
