Make The Grade With Your School Building
The health of your education facility directly impacts the performance of your students. Indoor air quality (IAQ), acoustics, 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.

Panther Valley Elementary School evaluated the indoor environmental quality (IEQ) with AWAIR sensors throughout the school – measuring temperature, humidity, CO2, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter (PM2.5), noise, and light. After identifying air quality, light and acoustic level concerns, the facility manager renovated the nurses station and a classroom to improve the IEQ with Armstrong Ceiling Solutions.
