Their units will be rolled out to the region's 257 schools through the remainder of 2021.

CALGARY — A Canadian manufacturer of air purification systems, Air Sniper, has partnered with Blade Air, Blade Filters’ air purification division, to engage the Peel District School Board (PDSB) in Southern Ontario to help protect faculty and students from COVID-19 and other airborne contaminants. UVC is one of the few technologies approved and recommended by ASHRAE to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Air Sniper, based in Calgary, AB, develops and manufactures air sanitization solutions. Their units will be rolled out to the region’s 257 schools through the remainder of 2021. Air Sniper’s advanced air purification solution properly applies UV-C technology and is installed within existing heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The equipment also has BAS/BAC net compatibility for monitoring and control.

All Air Sniper solutions are independently tested by third-party labs and have been proven effective at removing airborne contaminants such as Escherichia virus MS2 (Covid-19), staphylococcus epidermidis, influenza A (H1N1), and Aspergillus Niger (Mold). The system leverages Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) light at a spectrum of 253.7 nanometers to produce its germicidal effect.

“Air Sniper is excited to work on the Peel project in partnership with Blade Air. They are an exceptional team to work with. We are proud to be providing solutions for the school district to protect faculty and students against COVID-19 and other airborne viruses.,” says Stuart Henley, President of Air Sniper. “For us to be able to provide safe and effective air purification solutions to the Peel school district is a great honour.”


Blade Filters is a company located in Toronto, Ontario, focused on providing Canadian-made industrial air quality solutions.
