Looking for the best custom air filters? Well, you've come to the right place. When it comes to high-quality pleated air filters, The "Practical Pleat" media is up to 28 times more effective at capturing particles than standard fiberglass panel filters.

In general, the more efficient a filter is at removing particles, the greater it's resistance to airflow, and the greater the pressure drop it creates. One way to overcome this problem is to increase the surface area of the filter media. The "Practical Pleat" contains over 500% greater surface area than a MERV 11 one-inch pleat.

  • 28X Increased Efficiency
  • This is designed to fit into 1" Return Air Grilles
  • These are long lasting 5 inch MERV 11 high performance custom air filters
  • Eliminates Filter Bypass

Even though these custom air filters are provided in depths of 5 inches they are designed to fit in and take the place of standard 1 inch filters. Because of the greater surface are provided by Practical Pleat units they allow better air flow helping you to reduce energy costs by as much as 300% as compared to one-inch pleated units.

These custom air filters also have a working life span that is 6 times longer than a MERV 10 1 inch standard capacity pleat. That means you get 180 days or great air quality and low operating cost from one of these units as compared to only 30 days with the 1 inch MERV 10.

Spaces and gaps between the filter and its frame allow air to pass by without being filtered, this is known as bypass. Over a period of time this partial bypass can build up in ducts and on evaporating coils reducing efficiency and adding in mold and mildew growth. Our custom air filters eliminate bypass with a self-sealing gasket that conforms to imperfections in the frame.
