International school in Mexico installs Swedish antiviral technology | New
STOCKHOLM, November 8, 2021 / PRNewswire / – As part of actively reducing the spread of infection, the Himalayas International School of Monterrey, Mexico, installed LightAir’s IonFlow antiviral technology in 120 classrooms.
The school is located in the well-located town of Monterrey in the northeast Mexico and is part of the Semper Altius network, with around 90 schools established in sixteen countries.
“Of course, we want to minimize the spread of infections, reduce sick days and allow our students and staff to do their best in our classrooms.” said Kevin egan, director of the Himalaya International School. “LightAir’s scientifically proven technology, which minimizes airborne viruses and harmful particles, was very appealing when we explored our possibilities. The pandemic has touched us all and evidence of how the technology neutralizes a variety of viruses, including sras-cov-2, were important to us when we chose to invest in this solution. “
A seven-year study at Karolinska Institute showed how IonFlow technology prevents contact and airborne transmission of viruses that cause influenza and winter vomiting, for example. Earlier this year, another study by the IrsiCaixa research institute in Barcelona has shown that the technology also neutralizes the sars-cov-1 and sars-cov-2 pseudoviruses.
“Our patented technologies form the basis of our tailor-made offering for schools and offices,” said Lars liljeholm, CEO of LightAir. “Our choice to focus on these target groups in the commercial segment is based precisely on the great competitive advantages we have in these types of organizations. In short, our technology cleans better, longer and quieter than competing more conventional solutions.
IonFlow is an important part of LightAir’s commercial offering for offices and schools, which in the Nordic region are mainly offered on subscription with clean air as a service. The importance of clean air cannot be overstated, and a well-known Spanish study showed how pollution and ultrafine particle levels affect the development of schoolchildren. The results clearly show that children who spend their school day in clean air areas have 50 percent better cognitive development over the course of a school year, compared to children in unclean air areas. and a lot of traffic.
“The commercial segment represents approximately fifty percent of the entire global air purification market. Our strategic development, where we continually and increasingly address this part of the market, continues with a strong emphasis on the Nordic domestic market, followed by a selection of key European products. markets “, said Roger Sogge, COO at LightAir. “Of course, we will also take every opportunity to cultivate progressive offices and schools in other markets, where the recent delivery to this Mexican school is a good example. “
