Under this partnership, ProtectED gains exclusive rights to distribute Novaerus portable air disinfection solutions to K-12 institutions, early childhood education centers, and higher education establishments. Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, ProtectED is dedicated to empowering leaders to cultivate safe and healthy environments conducive to learning, working, and playing. Recognizing the critical role of clean indoor air in supporting academic success, ProtectED champions the deployment of WellAir's Novaerus medical-grade solutions tailored for educational settings.

Lindsey Wagner, Chief Development Officer for ProtectED, emphasizes, "Clean air isn't just a nice-to-have; it's a fundamental requirement for learning. The link between air quality and cognitive function is well-established. Our partnership with WellAir underscores our commitment to ensuring that students have access to the best learning environments to support their academic success."

Throughout a child's K-12 education, they will spend over 15,000 hours in school facilities. Despite diligent cleaning efforts, classrooms, cafeterias, libraries, and gyms can harbor biological and chemical contaminants, leading to illness and increased absenteeism. Research shows that chronically absent students face significant academic hurdles, with implications for long-term educational attainment.

WellAir's portable air cleaning devices, deployed in thousands of school buildings nationwide, offer a low-maintenance, easy-to-install and safe solution that effectively reduces airborne pathogens and pollutants. These devices not only help to reduce the risk of infection but also contribute to a healthier indoor environment, ultimately helping to curb absenteeism and foster academic success.

Kevin Devlin, CEO of WellAir, expresses confidence in the partnership, stating, "ProtectED has established itself as a trusted and valued air quality partner to schools. We are excited to deepen our relationship with the team and are confident that this collaboration will lead to healthier and safer educational environments throughout the country."

As ProtectED assumes representation of Novaerus' complete product line in all 50 states, it solidifies its position as a national leader in air purification technology grounded in scientific principles. Together, WellAir and ProtectED are poised to revolutionize indoor air quality in educational settings, ensuring that every student has the opportunity to thrive in a safe and healthy learning environment.
