Clean air for our kids.

Reduce school illness & absenteeism while improving students’ cognitive function

Protect|ED is proud to offer the WellAir Protect 900W with NanoStrike™ Technology, a medical-grade portable air disinfection system that provides drastic air quality improvement in schools and classrooms across the U.S.

Using an innovative dual-speed fan, the NanoStrike™ remains quiet during operation, ensuring students and faculty can maintain focus in the classroom environment.

NanoStrike™ is efficient on school budgets and on electricity. The device requires less energy than a 14-watt light bulb and offers the lowest cost of ownership of any air purification technology.

Weighing in at just 10lbs, NanoStrike™ is slim, lightweight, and highly portable. The unit can be easily stand or wall-mounted requiring minimal installation.

Nanostrike™ Technology enables the unit to disinfect and purify classroom air rapidly by physically destroying airborne pathogens at the DNA level.

Both Elementary and Secondary School Energy Relief (ESSER) funds and School Safety and Security Grants (SSSG) can be used by school districts to offset costs for classroom safety devices like NanoStrike™.

What Schools Are Saying

NanoStrike™ provides vital peace of mind. The medical-grade technology it uses helps to safely clean the air by reducing contaminants and viruses 24 hours a day. The decision was obvious once we reviewed the NanoStrike testing and scientific data – specifically its effectiveness on the SARS CoV-2 virus.

Riverside Unified School District, California

We are excited to install NanoStrike™ devices in every shared space in the Noble Local School District. Nothing is more important to us than the safety and well-being of our students and staff. We are pleased to have found a device that wasn’t developed in response to COVID19, but rather, has been in existence in many high-profile medical spaces, schools and other buildings throughout the country for more than 12 years.

The pandemic sort of was that catalyst to really get people thinking about indoor air quality a little harder. Our district aims to be proactive as we think of creative solutions to keep kids and staff safe and in the classroom.

Frequently Asked Questions

By improving air quality, schools are better able to keep kids learning in the classroom. By reducing the risk for illness, absenteeism will diminish, having a positive impact on academic performance. Further, additional ventilation in the classroom led to a direct increase of 11 points on math tests as well as an increase in word recognition by 15 percent. (Park, 2016/Bako ‘Biro’ et al, 2011.) Researchers also observed a 5 percent decrement in the “power of attention” in poorly ventilated classrooms.

The WellAir Protect 900W with NanoStrike™ Technology eliminates germs commonly found in school buildings including influenza, norovirus, cold viruses, strep, SARS-CoV-2 and more. In addition, the system eliminates dust, soot, pollen and other contaminants known to exacerbate asthma and allergies, which is a significant issue for many school-aged children.

Developed by a team of scientists and engineers over a decade ago, NanoStrike™ utilizes multiple concurrent processes that rapidly kill and deactivate harmful airborne microorganisms. NanoStrike™ destroys the DNA and protein that make up nanosized viruses, bacteria and fungi. This stops viruses from spreading and bacterial and fungal spores from reproducing.

The unit is slim and lightweight at only 10 pounds and can be easily mounted on a wall. It’s portable, requiring no installation costs. NanoStrike™ uses a small amount of energy, less than a standard household lightbulb, and requires no maintenance. While it comes with a seven-year warranty, its effectiveness does not degrade over time. It also is extremely quiet and will not disrupt the learning environment. 

One NanoStrike™ unit will easily cover 1,300 square feet, circulating the air in its entirety every 45 minutes. Large spaces such as cafeterias and libraries will require additional units depending on the overall square footage.

Student athletic facilities are often a breeding ground for MRSA and other staph infections and are often plagued with lingering odors. The NanoStrike™ units eradicate these foul smells by killing harmful microorganisms in addition to ensuring extracurricular activities are able to continue while keeping student athletes and spectators safe.

Filters help, but they do not do enough to protect the wellbeing of our young people. MERV filters and other HVAC filters only trap micro-organisms such as allergens. The pathogens are still alive and harmful to humans. They do not destroy hazardous air particles. NanoStrike™ is the perfect complement to HVAC filters.

While there are several technologies that capture pathogens, such as allergens, on the market, there are very few that actually eliminate harmful micro-organisms. NanoStrike™ does not emit anything into the air like other products. Rather, it kills airborne pathogens and is trusted by world-renowned medical institutions such as the Mayo Clinic and Cleveland Clinic.

While the pandemic may wane, the need for better air quality in our schools remains. The NanoStrike™ system defends against highly dangerous mold spores along with other germs commonly found in school buildings including influenza, norovirus, cold viruses, strep and more. More than 60 clinical and lab studies show NanoStrike™ reduces certain viruses and pathogens up to 99.99 percent after 45 minutes.

Schools can tap into the federal Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ESSER.) This new funding was put in place to help school districts safely reopen and to address significant learning loss as a result of the pandemic. With indoor air quality improvements as an allowable expense, this is the ideal time for schools to take a proactive approach to protecting the health and wellbeing of students.

The unit is slim, lightweight and can be easily mounted on a wall with just two screws. It’s portable, requiring no installation costs. Click here to download the NanoStrike™ instruction manual.

NanoStrike™ comes with a seven-year warranty, although its effectiveness does not degrade over time.
