The respiratory system of children is not mature until they reach the age of 12. They are more exposed to viruses, bacteria or chemical particles, which makes them very sensitive to respiratory infections. Respiratory allergies are also the number one cause of chronic illness in young people, with an increased risk of developing asthma.
According to Santé Publique France, asthma affects 8% of children and teenagers, compared with 3% to 5% in adults.
Poor indoor air quality in schools and classrooms also affects pupils’ cognitive abilities and alters their concentration, which can result in a drop in academic performance. .
There can be many sources of indoor air pollution in your establishment:
The indoor air in educational institutions is 8 to 10 times more polluted than outdoor air. And yet, this is where students are required to spend 90% of their school time.

They must also take the necessary steps if the authorised thresholds in terms of CO2, formaldehyde and benzene are exceeded.

In addition, airinspace air purifiers for schools and classrooms help you improve the indoor air quality of your primary school, secondary school or university.
