Wildfires have been increasing in frequency and severity over recent years, and wildfire smoke exposes us all to harmful pollutants.
Children’s health & learning can be more adversely affected by exposure to wildfire pollutants, making indoor air quality much more important in the classroom. Armstrong’s STRATACLEAN IQ Air Filtration System uses proven MERV 13 filtration to clean the air by capturing airborne contaminants, allergens and particulates to create cleaner, healthier air.
Why Are Children More At Risk From Wildfire Smoke?
Children breathe more air relative to their size than adults and their organs are still in development.
Air pollution can increase chances of severe respiratory illness.
Children are more active and can inhale air pollution deeper into developing lungs.*
