The MEGApleat™ M8 premium pleated filter’s patent-pending design is the ideal choice for sustainable building design and operation, standing up to the most challenging environments and applications, said the company. The 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 patent-pending design of the filter includes a heavy-duty, galvanized, expanded, metal support grid combined with high-strength wet beverage board. The optimized pattern of the grid minimizes blockage to airflow. The strength of the grid, combined with the proprietary moisture-resistant glue formulation, helps prevent blowouts and failures under the toughest environments, including high-moisture applications, the company said.
