School ventilation systems

School Ventilation Systems

Recently, there has been many news articles and radio stations discussing whether schools in the UK should follow the same pattern as Germany and have ventilation systems installed in them as an added precaution towards COVID-19.

Why is this in question?

Firstly, closing schools due to COVID-19 infection rates has a massive impact on not only the educational impact of children but also their social development. As well as the children, parents are also affected due to having to stay at home and look after their child(ren) which further affects the economy.

Also, schools also carry many concerns about spreading coronavirus into family homes and to vulnerable/ high-risk relatives – many of which, by now, should have had their first, if not both of their vaccination doses. But this does not protect these individuals 100% and due to this, everything that can be put in place should be put in place to protect ourselves and everyone that we encounter from the virus.

The solution

We believe the solution to reducing the infection rates in schools is ventilation. This is because studies show that the risk of infection is significantly higher in poorly ventilated rooms.

There are things that can be done in schools to improve the ventilation of classrooms and of the school as a whole such as opening any windows and doors, but we also understand that this can be a safeguarding issue.

For that reason, MAC offers the installation of ventilation systems in schools to suit your requirements. All our engineers are DBS checked and hold a range of certifications of expertise.
