New Orders from OEM Customers
Delta, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - September 29, 2020) - AirTest Technologies (TSXV: AAT) (OTC: AATGF) ("AirTest" or the "Company") President George Graham is very pleased to announce that AirTest has received new orders from existing OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturers). The Company has also had RFP's (Requests for Proposals) from a number of OEM customers for carbon dioxide (CO2) sensors in school classrooms to verify ventilation requirements of COVID-19 protocols.
"You can't manage what you don't measure" is a mantra that has great application in relation to COVID-19. Elevating the outside air ventilation levels going to indoor spaces is crucial in limiting this airborne virus. Measurement of CO2 levels can indicate the amount of fresh air delivery to a space like a store, classroom or office. CO2 can be used to assess ventilation levels in occupied spaces because people are the source of exhaled CO2, and the actual level measured can be indicative of how much fresh air is entering the space to dilute the CO2 levels and other contaminants including the COVID-19 airborne virus. By measuring CO2 levels, elevated levels of ventilation to enhance COVID-19 safety protocols can be properly verified and continuously monitored. AirTest manufactures a wide range of CO2 sensors that can provide real time measurement of CO2 allowing building managers to properly provide adequate ventilation.
George Graham, President of the Company, commented, "We have had RFP's for a large number of CO2 sensors to provide measurement in school classrooms. AirTest has successfully installed CO2 sensors over the last number of years in hundreds of school systems in north America including Belleview and Seattle WA, Coquitlam and Burnaby BC, as well as Garland and Dallas TX. The application of CO2 sensors in classrooms allows the facilities managers in school systems to monitor CO2 levels in real time, and the system provides the tools to properly monitor and manage the ventilation systems, ensuring adequate ventilation at all times. When COVID-19 concerns have passed, the CO2 sensors can be used to save energy by modulating outside air ventilation based on actual occupancy in the space. This will ensure that target code required ventilation rates for good air quality are maintained." Graham added: "The Company has also seen new orders come from other OEM customers as businesses start to reopen. After the anticipated lull in sales activity during the 2nd Quarter, sales have picked up briskly in the 3rd Quarter."
AirTest also makes wireless battery powered and ambient light powered CO2 sensors that can quickly and easily be retrofitted into buildings and be immediately integrated into existing control systems. The system can also provide cloud-based monitoring interfaces reporting on a number of indoor air parameters with email and text alerts available.
