Every Glasgow school classroom to get CO2 monitor

Every Glasgow school classroom is set to have a carbon dioxide monitor installed to improve air quality for pupils and staff. The monitor is produced by Latvian company SAF Tehnika.

Glasgow council is buying 5,000 monitors at a cost of £797,395 to boost ventilation in schools across the city. The devices would alert teachers if air quality dips so they can open windows or doors.

A council officer told the Glasgow City Council contracts and property committee: “Every single teaching space in every educational establishment in the city will have a bespoke Co2 (carbon dioxide) monitor in it.”

He said there are about 4,600 “teaching spaces” in the city and spare monitors have also been ordered to replace any that get damaged.

The move comes after the UK Government last year made it a requirement for all classrooms to measure and monitor the levels of carbon dioxide in schools according to a council paper.

Letting fresh air into a room is said to help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
