A typical school classroom is home to one of the highest concentrations of young people in ever-changing and moving environments. They change classrooms, work collaboratively with friends, study and eat on surfaces that are touched often by hundreds of different people per day. With the emergence of the new current environment, the wellness and safety of students and staff has become a top priority for schools.
Standard cleaning procedures leave high traffic and high-touch areas, such as classrooms. vulnerable to germs and bacteria. Although protocols are being updated, schools are looking for ways to keep the learning environments positive and healthy. Circadian lighting solutions with air sanitization operating in the background becomes an attractive option to promote alertness, focus and overall wellness.
Healthe’s patented GoodDay® static circadian lighting systems are ideal for daytime intensive applications like classrooms to enhance alertness and boost energy, similar to the effects of natural sunlight. While GoodDay illuminates the classrooms, Healthe’s Cleanse® Troffer can work in the background to sanitize the air with its multi-stage filtration process. Combining GoodDay lighting with Cleanse sanitization solutions can help promote a healthy and engaging school environment for both students and faculty.
Bishop O'Connell High School, located in Arlington, Virginia, retrofitted their old fluorescent lighting with a more efficient LED solution that could also bring circadian-blue rich lighting into the classrooms for an improved environment in classrooms without windows. The study demonstrated enhanced mood, focus, productivity, and alertness for students exposed to the GoodDay® troffers.
