    The Airguard® DP® MAX Pleat – standard size 2-in. filter is an extended-service, synthetic, pleated filter that provides low pressure drop and high-dust holding. The DP MAX Pleat is designed with a consistent pleat shape on predetermined centers, causing dirt to collect evenly over the entire surface of the media. This technology results in a slow, steady rise in resistance for maximum dust-holding capacity. 
    • Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value (MERV) 8 and MERV-A 8-A efficiency rating
    • Low initial resistance for energy savings; DP MAX Pleat = 0.21-in. water gauge
    • Extremely high dust-loading
    • Exceeds American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers Standard 52.2 air cleaning specifications for filters installed upstream of cooling coils
    • 100-percent thermally bonded, synthetic, proprietary media to resist moisture, delaminating, excessive buckling, collapsing, warping, and bending
    • Mechanical efficiency – achieves MERV 8 rating before and after a conditioning step
    • Die-cut pattern providing 50 percent more contact points between media pack and frame
    • Integral die-cut cross members for strength and rigidity
    • Galvanized steel metal grid to resist rust, maintain pleat shape, and prevent fluttering
    • 2-in. depth
    • 10 pleats per foot
    • Any application or air handling system
    • Built-up filter banks, central station air handlers, rooftop units, side access housings
    • Final filters for MERV 8 requirements
    • Pre-filters in multistage systems
