Designing for Resiliency in Schools

Reassure students and staff with sustainable building products that improve indoor environmental quality.

Make The Grade With Your School Building

The health of your education facility directly impacts the performance of your students. Acoustics, air quality, light, temperature, aesthetics, sustainable materials, and other factors all play a role in how well students perform and feel in the classroom.

Studies show the need for optimal indoor environmental quality in the classroom. For instance, for every 10 dB noise increase, math test scores decrease by over 5 points. Other findings prove that poor lighting directly effects students sleep, concentration and well-being.

By creating healthy indoor environments, we can keep students and staff in schools. We’ve been helping to create the optimal learning environments for decades by offering healthy, sustainable building materials.

Explore products that can improve acoustics, clean the air and improve light reflectance.

Need For Cleaner Air

Students miss 14 million school days per year due to poor air quality and indoor pollutants

Improving Infrastructure**

54% of public school districts need to update or replace multiple building systems or features in their schools



“The staff simply didn’t realize how bad it was because they didn’t realize how good it could be.”

- Scott McLellan, Chief Operations Officer, Boys & Girls Club of Lancaster

Introducing the Armstrong + AWAIR Healthy Schools Program

Armstrong and AWAIR, a leader in indoor environmental quality (IEQ) monitoring solutions and services, have partnered to help schools identify IEQ issues and improve indoor educational environments and learning experiences.

We are working together to: 

  • Pilot and improve indoor environmental quality monitoring systems for schools
  • Make ceiling, wall and air purification recommendations to enhance IEQ and benefit student and staff well-being
  • Measure the positive impact Armstrong solutions have on core elements of IEQ

AWAIR’s sensors monitor and identify risks across seven key indoor environmental quality parameters including particulates and VOCs, acoustics and light, temperature and humidity and carbon dioxide. 

To find out how Armstrong and AWAIR can help you improve the IEQ of your school, contact Armstrong Healthy Spaces Segment Manager, Anne P. Jennings, P.E.
