  • Ultra-low air resistance: >18” w.c. (>54 Pa) at rated airflow
  • Ultra-long filter life: 3 years based on 50% use
  • Easy installation: Requires no electrical connections
  • Low maintenance
  • Rugged steel cabinet: Can be easily hung (with optional hanging kit)
  • Medical grade finish: Powder coated galvanized steel
  • Fully insulated for installation in unconditioned environments
  • Swiss made quality: 10 year warranty

The IQAir Perfect 16 is the highest performance air filter for fitting into existing building HVAC systems.

Conventional whole-building air filters can impede the air flow of your central heating and air conditioning system by up to 50%. This air resistance forces your system to work harder forcing air through to heat or cool your building.

The IQAir Perfect 16 is engineered for ultra-low air resistance and actually improves the performance efficiency of your heating and cooling system, whilst delivering proven and certified filtration of ultrafine particles.

The V2 Difference: Perfect Airflow

Most air filters have a single flat surface that fits squarely in the housing of the system. The Perfect 16’s filters are placed in a double “V” shape. The V2 design allows the Perfect 16 to use over 170 square feet of filter media. This

is 50 times more filtration material than that of an ordinary HVAC filter. The additional surface area allows more air to pass through the system. This innovative concept makes a big difference in how much air the Perfect 16 can clean.

Advanced Micro-Fiber Filtration Technology

The IQAir Perfect 16 utilizes Advanced Micro-Fiber Filtration Technology. The Perfect16‘s filter fibers are 10 times thinner than those used in standard air filters. This allows air to easily pass through the fibers, while the ultra-fine threads create an almost impenetrable barrier for pollution particles. The result is an air filter that sets a new standard for air cleaning efficiency and airflow.
