Lysol Air Filters
Lysol® Air Filter Triple Protection filters are engineered to trap more of what you do not want to breathe. Built with the asthma and allergy sufferer in mind, these filters are the first air filters ever CERTIFIED asthma & allergy friendly by The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America.
In addition to trapping high levels of allergens, the filters include an antimicrobial agent to protect the filter from the growth of harmful bacteria, mold and mildew. Also included is an odor nuetralizer which captures unwanted odors, VOCs and fumes that can trigger allergy symptoms. The air filters were also tested at an accredited, third-party laboratory under ASHRAE 52.2-2007 test standards and reported to be MERV 11.
Commercial, two-piece frame construction (top and bottom frames) provide sturdiness to prevent bowing and a snug fit in your holding frame to improve dust trapping ability.
The lofted, wire-backed media (pleated fiber fabric) holds a high amount of dust while allowing air to flow through easily. Furthermore, the manufacturer has put a lot more media in the frame than standard wireback media 1-inch filters. Most residential pleated filters have 14 pleats per foot; these 1-inch filters are built with 22 pleats per foot meaning that there is about 50% more surface area to work better and last longer than most. Pleat counts on thicker air cleaning cartridges vary based on OEM specs.
