The COVID-19 pandemic has introduced new safety and cleaning protocols for restaurants, office buildings, and other businesses throughout the United States. When summer hit its peak and the look-ahead to fall began, it was time to start thinking about welcoming faculty, students and staff back to campus.
While no one knows for certain what campus life will be like for the upcoming academic year, we do know it will be different. When people begin to return to campus, the No. 1 priority will be keeping them safe. Global Plasma Solutions (GPS) is an experienced, technology-focused provider of solutions that clean the air of pathogens and other particles that contribute to the spread of viruses – including the novel coronavirus.
Classrooms, campus buildings, and other school settings regularly feature a large number of people in a confined area. In order to reduce the spread of disease and limit a virus’s infectivity, you need solutions that are up for a challenge. GPS products are installed at over 250,000 locations including colleges and universities, where GPS technology safely and effectively improves the quality of indoor air.
GPS’ ionization technology, through the process of needlepoint bipolar ionization (NPBI)™️, makes a significant impact on air quality. GPS technology delivers ionization through the HVAC system, reducing the volume of infectious pathogens in the air. Independent laboratory studies have shown reduced infectivity of certain viruses by 90% or more.*
In addition to the safety benefits of GPS technology, these products are also cost-efficient. There’s no recurring cost after installation, and with low current draw, this technology uses less energy and keeps utility costs down. No complex wiring, no messy installation.
