'Game-changing' air sanitisers developed in response to the coronavirus pandemic with support from two former Saints players are helping to keep a Northampton school clean.

Quinton House School has bought a number of AIR by Atmos-Clear UCV-LED units as an extra layer of safety following its reopening last week.

Coincidentally, ex-Northampton Saints and England rugby stars Matt Dawson and Ian Hunter are share-holders in the Exeter-based business.

Quinton House School

Principal Jo Storey said: “At Quinton House School, the health and safety of our children is our top priority and during this pandemic, the needs are even greater.

"We are delighted to be partnering with Atmos-Clear and piloting its ‘confidence boosting’ innovative AIR UVC-LED sanitisers in several areas within the school.

"Our science department, including students, will be working with Atmos-Clear to conduct fun experiments involving the sanitisers so that the students can get involved in the reality of engineering and see first-hand how it comes into place.”

The AIR units are proven to destroy 99.9 per cent of all airborne and surface bacteria and viruses including Covid-19, by silently pulling dirty air into the unit through side vents in its base.

The air is then treated with ultra-violet germicidal irradiation using proven UVC-LED technology which destroys the DNA of microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria, mould and fungi, rendering them ‘disrupted’ and unable to reproduce.

This creates not only clean air, but continually ‘cleaning’ air, as the disrupted DNA latches on and remains killing viruses and bacteria to create a completely sanitised environment.

They will be plugged into a wall socket in Quinton House's classrooms to create a completely sanitised room environment and bring confidence to its pupils and teachers.

Matt said: “Unlike other air products on the market, AIR has no filters, no extras and you get five years of safe, silent, confident protection certified to kill 99.9 per cent of viruses, bacteria and fungi. You just plug it in, push a button and done.”

Ian added: “I’m super-proud to be involved with a company like Atmos-Clear who responded to the government’s cry to manufacturing businesses to help fight this dreadful pandemic.

"And within 10 months they had delivered this game-changing product which is a great demonstration of British engineering at its best.”
