Protecting the health and well-being of your students, teachers and staff

Cleaner Air For Schools was designed to respond to the anxiety on the part of parents, students, teachers and staff caused by the reopening of schools during the COVID-19 pandemic. This program offers measures that protect building occupants from the highly contagious virus through proven REME-LED Active Purification and duct-sealing by:

  1. Improving air quality
  2. Improving airflow
  3. Offering a 3-foot sneeze shield*, unique in the marketplace
  4. Eliminating viruses from surfaces and aerosols.

REME-LED is proven to kill 99.9+% of viruses, bacteria, and mold by eliminating airborne and surface contaminants with Hydro-Peroxide Ions and Bi-Polar Ionization. It is designed to be installed directly into air-handling units and does not require additional in-room equipment.

REME-LED is not an experimental technology in the prototype phase. It is well-established and is patented and manufactured by a company with a wide range of air, water and food quality products, with a combined 4,000,000 systems installed in over 60 countries. This technology has recently been adopted by Grand Erie District School Board in Southwestern Ontario, and several colleges in the US, including Florida State College and Hillsborough Community College. Recent lab tests support its value with respect to combatting COVID-19.

In addition, this technology works in concert with patented Duct-Sealing technology and is a strategic part of the recovery investment for climate resilience and energy-efficient buildings. This comprehensive strategy for containing COVID-19 and enhancing the overall air quality of your buildings will keep students, teachers, and staff safe over the longer term – post-COVID.

REME-LED is exclusively available through Thomas Cole Inc. in Burlington, Ontario, and its partner, Nerva Energy.

Duct-sealing: A powerful tool to remove COVID-19 viral particles

REME-LED is optimally used with our Duct-sealing technology. Duct-sealing:

  • Improves ventilation by up to 35% while decreasing energy use;
  • Ensures that all of the air supplied and returned through the ventilation system is delivered to the spaces that people occupy in buildings (rather than leaking into ceilings and otherwise unoccupied mechanical spaces); and
  • Increases the effective air dilution rate within the building, which means that droplets with viral particles are more likely to be removed, filtered and dissipated, thereby reducing the risk of cross-contamination

As you consider how to mitigate airborne and surface-based transmission of COVID-19 to provide a safe, healthy learning and working environment, you will need additional information.

Mohawk College has developed expertise and an applied research focus relevant to these technologies: the college is now working with three school boards that are installing these new systems and assessing their effectiveness in schools. Mohawk and Nerva will provide a future educational webinars on the process, technology and test results of these breakthrough air-quality solutions.
