The New Standard in Premium Pleated Filters

Introducing the longest-lasting MERV 9 pleated panel filter on the market—the MEGApleat M9. Manufactured with a heavy-duty, galvanized expanded metal support grid and moisture-resistant adhesive, the MEGApleat M9 filter is the strongest MERV 9 pleated filter available. The MEGApleat M9 filter’s low initial resistance requires less energy consumption, resulting
in lower operating costs and energy savings.


Certified Performance—Insist on Independent Testing

With the MEGApleat M9 filter, MERV 9 classification is documented with test results from an independent, third-party test laboratory. The MEGApleat M9 filter gives you the performance our competitors promise but don’t deliver.


Premium Construction and Performance

Designed to meet the demands of the toughest applications, the MEGApleat M9 filter offers a totally unitized, die-cut box, beverage board frame with double thickness in the perimeter wall. The MEGApleat M9 filter is extremely strong and durable under difficult operating conditions, including high-moisture applications. A heavy-duty, galvanized expanded metal pleatsupport grid laminated to the media pack increases rigidity and helps maintain proper spacing between pleats. Proper pleat spacing ensures maximum efficiency, low resistance, and maximizes DHC. The media pack is bonded to the frame at all points of contact, using moisture-resistant adhesive. This bonding prevents dirty air bypass and promotes even airflow through the media pack. The MEGApleat M9 filter construction process results in a filter which is very stable, with no racking or vibration of the pleats under normal airflow. Pleat stability minimizes the chances of captured particulate shaking loose and re-entering the airstream.


Total System Savings

Looking at each stage of filtration is critical to optimizing the efficiency of a HVAC system. When employing a 3-stage system, a MEGApleat M9 filter, combined with a VariCel® VXL filter and a MEGAcel® I HEPA filter, will minimize energy usage and cost. When combined with these filters, the MEGApleat M9 filter offers an environmentally sustainable solution that can help you qualify for LEED® Energy and Atmosphere credits, by reducing the fan energy usage associated with HVAC systems. When a MEGApleat M9 filter is used in combination with other AAF Flanders filters, your total cost of ownership is less than competitive systems, as seen in the graph below.
