BUCKINGHAM, Va., Feb. 9, 2023 /​PRNewswire/​ — Buck­ing­ham Coun­ty Pub­lic Schools today announced a roll­out of UV‑C dis­in­fec­tion tech­nol­o­gy to keep stu­dents and fac­ul­ty safer and health­i­er in part­ner­ship with biosafe­ty tech­nol­o­gy com­pa­ny, R‑Zero. The roll­out is part of Buck­ing­ham’s con­tin­ued com­mit­ment to improv­ing stu­dent engage­ment and enabling a high­er stan­dard of pro­tec­tion in its school buildings.

Buck­ing­ham is deploy­ing two R‑Zero Arc sys­tems, which use UV light to neu­tral­ize 99.99% of harm­ful microor­gan­isms in the air and on sur­faces in min­utes, to pro­tect over 2,000 stu­dents and staff. The tech­nol­o­gy, which increas­es effec­tive air changes per hour with low­er ener­gy con­sump­tion than HVAC and min­i­mizes the need for chem­i­cal dis­in­fec­tion, is cur­rent­ly being used by more than 1,000 schools across the coun­try. Buck­ing­ham is the sec­ond school dis­trict in Vir­ginia to add R‑Zero’s tech­nol­o­gy to health and safe­ty protocols.
