American Air Filter Co. Inc. has created the MEGApleat M8 premium pleated filter, intended for sustainable building design and operation.
MEGApleat M8 filters promote maximum dust holding capacity (DHC) and can last up to six months or longer in most operating environments. This reduces the need to change filters every three to four months, saving both labor and material costs and reducing waste. The MEGApleat M8 filter is rated MERV 8.
The filter includes a heavy-duty, galvanized expanded metal support grid combined with high-strength wet beverage board. The pattern of the grid minimizes blockage to airflow. The metal cross-sectional area is 40% larger than other wire-backed designs. The strength of the grid combined with the moisture-resistant glue formulation helps prevent blowouts and failures under high-moisture applications.
