Replaces & Supersedes similar filters from: Clean Comfort CCG Resideo Honeywell Home FC40 Return Grille Filters Zephyr Filtration PracticalPleat Media Air Filters and More



The Practical Pleat is a 5” high performance filter designed to replace inferior 1” filters. Its unique gasket fits into one-inch filter grilles with the excess depth of the filter protruding into the duct system.

Available in 2″ and 5″, the 5” Practical Pleat’s surface area is 433% greater than a comparable 1” extended surface pleat. The effective lifetime is up to four times greater than comparable one-inch filters. Don’t let the competitors fool you! The Practical Pleat is the only retro-fitting filter that has its’ unique gasket to prevent air bypass. Gaps between the filter and filter frame allow particles to be pulled around the filter, entering the duct system and ultimately, inhabited spaces. The “Practical Pleat’s” unique patented gasket conforms to imperfections in the filter track, eliminating air by-pass, and preserving the integrity of the MERV 8 or MERV 11 rating.
