Reduction Air Filter with Intersept
Antimicrobial. Premium Residential / Commercial
PerfectPleat Ultra will give you the performance our competitors promise but can't deliver.
Compare to 3M Filtrete, Farr, Purolater, AirGuard, Koch, and Precisionair.
• Providing Greater Than 70% Efficiency on 3-10 Micron Particles!
Rated MERV 8. Lasts 90 days.
• The Industry's Premier Extended Surface Pleated Panel Air Filter.
The Benefits of
The higher efficiency of the
PerfectPleat Ultra means improved Indoor Air
Quality (IAQ) in your facility. In addition, when you use it as a
prefilter, you not only improve the air, you dramatically extend
the service life of higher efficiency final filters. Use it as a
primary filter in place of other less efficient pleated panel
filters, and you will significantly reduce the accumulation of
dirt in your air conditioning system. In any configuration, the
PerfectPleat Ultra improves protection of the critical, and expensive,
components in your air conditioning system.
PerfectPleat Ultra maintains its high efficiency throughout the
life of the filter and becomes much more efficient after the first
dust loading. It is not enhanced by an electrostatic
charge that dissipates over time reducing filter efficiency, in
some instances significantly.

All PerfectPleat Ultra
filters incorporates Intersept®
antimicrobial which is engineered specifically to improve IAQ. All filters are
incubators of microorganisms.
Intersept® acts as preservative to ensure the integrity of the
media throughout the useful life of the filter. EPA registered and
environmentally safe, Intersept® inhibits the growth of
microorganisms (mildew, bacteria, fungi) documented to affect IAQ.
This is important because the higher efficiency of the
PerfectPleat Ultra means the filter removes significantly more microorganisms from

Ultra - Heavy Duty Frame
The 4" depth series
places a DuraFlex media pack inside of a two piece frame. Straps
are added to the air entering side of the filter to help
maintain pleat spacing, while specially designed pleat spacers
are inserted onto multiple rows on the air leaving side. The
pleat spacers also assist in keeping the pleats open during use,
maximizing filter life. The two piece frame is then
assembled around the rigid media pack and is bonded at all
contact points with adhesives that ensure resistance to
moisture. The result is unlike anything available in a 4"
pleat coupled with strength and durability. All frame
components, straps and pleat spacers are made with 28 pt.
beverage containerboard with the highest wet-strength available.
Ultra - Heavy Duty Frame
A perimeter frame
of 28 pt. beverage board is securely glued to the media pack to
create a solid cellside. The 28 pt. clay-coated board improves
filter strength and helps resist damage. Newly designed
pleat stabilizers, bonded to the media to ensure pleat spacing
uniformity, provide additional strength. Three sets of pleat
stabilizers are positioned on the air-leaving side of the filter.
On the air-entering side, three support straps add to the
PerfectPleat's strength. The support straps and pleat stabilizers
ensure integrity against turbulent airflow and provide excellent
lateral stability for installation in side-access systems. The
PerfectPleat is ideal for any application where pleated filters
are currently in use and higher efficiency is required or desired.
It offers superior durability and performance in the most

PerfectPleat Ultra has the same durability and performance as the

patented die cut pattern on the air leaving side.

and spaced pleats. Uniform size virgin
fibers are assembled in closely controlled blends to create a
media that is both self-supporting and remarkably consistent in
performance. The self-supporting characteristics allow a pleating
pattern that promotes excellent dust holding and resistance
characteristics. The PerfectPleat meets or exceeds all current
expectations for service life and required airflow and has a
guaranteed Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) of 8.
unique construction makes it self-supporting. When pleated,
DuraFlex will hold its shape without the need for wire support
characteristic of conventional pleated filters. That means no
potential for the formation of rust and safer handling no nicks or
cuts for the installer. With the superior resiliency of DuraFlex
media and no need for wire support, the PerfectPleat can sustain
significant abuse and maintain its shape and pleat spacing. The
absence of the wire also makes the filter totally incinerable,
which simplifies disposal.
Under ASHRAE standard 52.2,
PerfectPleat Ultra filters are classified
with a Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value of MERV 8, providing
greater than 70% efficiency on 3um particles. Insist upon
documented performance. With the AAF

classification is documented with test results from an independent

Nominal Size (Depth)
In general, all
standard filter sizes are stated according to their nominal size
and not their actual size. This information can be found on
the side of your filter. For example, our standard
PerfectPleat Ultra (nominal) 20x20x1 measures (actual) 19-1/2 x
19-1/2 x 3/4.
The nominal size represents the size of your filter rack.
The actual size represents the size your filter needs to be to fit
inside your filter rack. If your filter rack is an odd size,
a standard sized filter may not fit properly. In this case,
you would need to order a custom made filter.
When ordering custom
made filters please note that these filters will be made to your exact specifications ± 1/8 inch. Therefore, please provide
us with the exact width and length of the filter you are needing.
Please be sure to measure exactly for a snug fit to allow the
filter to fit within the rack but without air seepage around the

We can build filters larger then 24.5" x 35" but they are
considered a double size (please call us for pricing at

may consider putting two filters together to achieve the size
desired, i.e. 18" x 40" you would need two 18" x
