Project Abstract

AtmosAir™ systems were installed at the University of Southern California’s John McKay Center. USC’s new $70 million, 110,000-square-foot athletic and academic facility is a powerful symbol of the rich USC history. Third party indoor air quality testing was completed to test the effects of the AtmosAir bipolar ionization technology.

Testing

USC chose 5 areas within the training facility for testing. They included the football training center, the weight room, the locker room, and two open spaces on the first and second floors.

Results

AtmosAir™ improved indoor air quality significantly, and the reduction of particulate matter and TVOC was substantial.

PM10 particles are small enough to breathed in and enter the throat. PM2.5 particles are small enough to be breathed in and enter the lungs. These particles can cause illness and discomfort. TVOCs are gaseous elements that can cause odors and irritations.

• VOC Reduction: 90%
• PM2.5 Reduction: 50%
• PM10 Reduction: 95%

AtmosAir™ is currently installed in multiple USC Athletic Facility buildings, including the entire John McKay Center and Heritage Hall. USC and AtmosAir™ believe that athletic performance is tied to overall indoor air quality.
