AIRE LIMPIO IN EDUCATION CENTERS
The new RITE (Regulation of Thermal Installations in Buildings, Royal Decree 1027/2007) Forces the classrooms meet minimum requirements for ventilation and IAQ. (Art. 11). TECHNICAL INSTRUCTIONS establish mandatory filtering. (IT18.104.22.168.2.) (I.T22.214.171.124.3.)
The RITE requires classrooms to have a ventilation system to ensure quality levels and to provide the required air quality and a sufficient supply of outside air flow, to prevent the formation of high concentrations of contaminants. According to the new RITE, simple manual ventilation by opening windows and is not allowed when it could not guarantee adequate levels of indoor air quality. (UNE-EN 13779)
RITE is applied to schools and new buildings and reforms of thermal installations in existing buildings.
ECONOMIC IMPLICATIONS FOR SCHOOLS
Compliance of the RITE has a very significant economic impact on the renovation and construction at schools. Traditional ventilation systems would be required to comply with regulations in a rising anti-economic cost of these works and reforms.
RITE also promotes the introduction of new technologies and innovative concepts compared to traditional restrictive approaches that prevent the use of new products and more effective and efficient techniques.
