Superior Performance

PerfectPleat M8 is a filter with form and fit unlike any pleated filter in the marketplace today - and with the filtering efficiency you need and expect. MERV 8.

Drawing on its years of experience in manufacturing quality air filters, AAF has created a state-of-the-art process for producing pleated filters. The extremely high quality of these filters is a result of three unique, patent-pending innovations: a new automated manufacturing process; a unique, self-supporting media; and a filter construction that provides incredible strength without wire support.

 

Increasing Efficiency — Throughout Life of the Filter

The PerfectPleat filter is designed to consistently increase its efficiency throughout the service life of the filter. Competitive pleated panel filters, manufactured using an electret charge to obtain the MERV 8 rating, perform with declining efficiency over time. PerfectPleat M8 has an initial MERV 8 rating, but the efficiency increases significantly when dust loading begins.

Strength and Durability

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 demanding applications.

DuraFlex Media
Patented Design

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.

The PerfectPleat filter product line is totally incinerable and the absence of support wire simplifies disposal.

DuraFlex™ Media is Self-Supporting

DuraFlex media's 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.

PerfectPleat with DuraFlex media produces a filter with excellent form and fit As a result of its unique design, PerfectPleat can withstand significant damage DuraFlex media has memory which allows it to remain functional, even when the frame has been compromised.
