The Flanders NaturalAire Standard air filter is made of a pleated material reinforced with metal on one side. This filter is tested as a MERV (Minimum Efficiency Report Value) 8 rating through ASHRAE 52, 2 test methods. The combined company offers comprehensive and innovative air filtration solutions designed to remove and control airborne particles and gaseous pollutants in residential, commercial, industrial, cleanroom, transportation and nuclear energy applications. A pleated filter is an air filter that is made of a flexible material (polyester, cotton or paper) that is folded to look like an accordion and is housed in a cardboard frame.
During the early years of the new decade, Flanders focused its development efforts on creating air filtration systems designed to keep air clean in residential and commercial environments. Organizations such as NASA and hospitals use AAF Flanders air filters because they require as clean air as possible. Flanders's prestige, both physically and financially, did not begin to grow substantially until the company broke away from its niche and diversified into other areas of the filter industry. Diversification in the design and manufacture of lower efficient HEPA filters significantly increased Flanders's growth potential.
This high-quality synthetic plastic-based material allows filters to trap particles as small as lint, dust mites, mold spores, pollen, pet dander, fine dust, smoke, viruses and bacteria. Allan created the company to manufacture technologically advanced filters that were used for specific industrial applications. AAF Flanders, the world's largest manufacturer of air filtration solutions, operates production, storage and distribution facilities in 22 countries on four continents. To help you protect your environment, improve your health, reduce risk and optimize your expenses related to clean air.
The company also designs and manufactures most of its own production equipment, as well as glass-based air filters for most of its products. You should also keep in mind that, since they don't have much surface area and don't filter out smaller particles, they can eventually cause accumulation and weaken the HVAC system and lower its efficiency, which can lead to higher energy costs. The corporate maneuvers marked the beginning of Amerson's diversification campaign, a campaign that will be carried out mainly through the acquisition of other companies involved in the filter industry.
