Air Guard PowerGuard filters offer better particulate capture than a MERV 8, without adding as much air obstruction as the higher-MERV filters, which can cause fan stress and system failure.
- MERV 11 (Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value) based on ASHRAE Test Standard 52.2-2012.
- Synthetic media made up of continuous hydrophobic fibers which do not absorb moisture and can withstand turbulent, high velocity conditions.
- Improved overall particle size efficiency due to continuous fiber structure and dual-stage electrostatic enhancement which captures an increased amount of smaller particulate than conventional glass media.
- Media support: Continuously bonded to a corrosion resistant, expanded metal grid allowing a 96% open face area.
