Paving the way to safer schools
This year school looks different.
As schools work to reopen and stay open amidst the ongoing pandemic, superintendents and directors of facilities are challenged with implementing effective and innovative infection prevention solutions to protect the health of those in their care.
Hospital-grade disinfection for schools
R-Zero’s touchless, germicidal UV device, Arc, is the first hospital-grade UV-C disinfection system designed for dynamic education environments. Arc is proven to destroy 99.99% of surface and airborne pathogens - including coronavirus, seasonal flu, and norovirus - in a 1000 ft.2 classroom in less than 7 minutes.
Now, schools can employ the same technology that hospitals have relied on for decades, for a fraction of the cost.
Arc’s UV technology provides a critical layer of added protection to classrooms, cafeterias, locker rooms, computer labs, faculty break rooms, and more, making them safer for students and staff.
An ideal solution for schools, Arc is:
- Proven to destroy 99.99% of pathogens in the average classroom in under 7 minutes
- Extremely labor-efficient, saving 20-30% of time needed to disinfect a classroom compared with alternative methods
- Chemical-free and safe to use around food, plants, furniture and equipment

Minimal day-to-day disruption.
Unlike electrostatic spraying and manual disinfection, Arc is extremely labor-efficient and designed to fit seamlessly into existing workflows. Each cycle requires less than two minutes of touch time, allowing custodial teams to maintain optimum levels of productivity - running a UV cycle in one classroom, while moving on to the next.
Visibility into the disinfection process
Disinfection has traditionally been an invisible process, relying on manual checklists to confirm what was done. Alternatively, Arc - enabled with LTE-M and GPS connectivity - shares usage data in real-time, showing when, where, and for how long each cycle was run. This data, along with communication tools from R-Zero about the efficacy and benefits of hospital-grade UV-C, can be shared with parents and teachers to build trust and confidence.
The health and safety of our students, staff and community remains paramount, and incorporating Arc has allowed us to add a critical layer of protection and accountability across our district facilities. Implementation of R-Zero’s UV-C technology has been "Hassle-free" for our custodial teams, and the short cycle times reduce labor costs associated with increased disinfection protocols.

Our partnership with R-Zero and the return on our investment is immeasurable. This simple and highly effective machine helped solve one of the most complex problems we have ever faced in public education, and will continue to benefit our entire school system even after the immediate threat of the pandemic is over.
