TORONTO — Canadian business duo, Blade Air and Air Sniper, are providing indoor air quality (IAQ) solutions for the Ontario Public sector.

Blade Air, selected by the Peel District School Board (257 schools) to provide a turnkey air sanitization solution, has now been engaged by Superior North Catholic District School Board. Blade Air will be installing Air Sniper’s advanced UV-C technology into central air systems and unit ventilators in preparation for the upcoming school year this fall. This initiative is a key tool in protecting students and faculty from airborne transmission of COVID-19 and other pathogens. UV-C air sanitization is among the few technologies recognized and approved by ASHRAE and the CDC for COVID-19 risk mitigation.

In April 2021, the Ontario and Federal governments created a budget for funding infrastructure projects to improve ventilation systems and social distancing measures in public buildings, with an emphasis on schools. This budget was established to create healthier, cleaner, and safer environments in public spaces. As a result of this available funding, school boards are turning to Blade Air, a partner of the Ontario Education Collaborative Marketplace and Ontario Together, to supply them with inline and standalone air purification technologies. Blade Air is currently working with the Peel District, Ottawa Carleton, Hamilton-Wentworth, Waterloo Region, Dufferin-Peel Catholic, Grand Erie District School Boards, and numerous other organizations.
