UAF'S New Vent Panel Air Filters Meet Thermal Management, Industrial Design and Outdoor Enclosure Demands

Satisfy thermal management needs in harsh outdoor applications and also meet aesthetic requirements for proper industrial design with attractive, one-piece, low-cost Vent Panel Air Filters from Universal Air Filter (

Industrial design specifications can become costly and can reduce thermal management of critical cooling when additional components/material are used to create an electronics chassis with a desired aesthetic "look." UAF's creative Vent Panel filters combine the functional diffuser, decorative bezel and Telcordia NEBS GR-63-CORE compliant air filter into one integrated, low-cost assembly. Free airflow is maximized with approximately 85% open, square or hex pattern perforated vent panels. The louvered design vent panels can handle specialized HVAC air moving and diffuse airflow in specific directions.

Used as part of many outdoor Vent Panel Air Filters is the environmentally-engineered line of Quadrafoam and Quadrafoam II filter media that complies with requirements of Telcordia GR-487-CORE for flame, fungus and corrosion resistance. This combination will meet stringent flame safety requirements of UL 94 with a zero fungus growth rating. Metal components can be treated with special chromate or irridite finishes for corrosion protection. Quadrafoam and Quadrafoam II are rated UL 94 HF-1, cleanable and reusable, and available in black, gray or green colors. Both feature deep loading, increased dust holding capacity and low air resistance. Quadrafoam II is ideal for prolonged exposure to high temperature, high moisture environments, and other harmful elements. Products with Quadrafoam II air filters have been environmentally tested to withstand dust intrusion and wind driven rain as detailed in GR-487-CORE.

A free, round-the-clock prototype service is available to design engineers worldwide at The Internet-submitted prototype request form, or a quick phone call, fax or e-mail, is generally all it takes to get the necessary information so the custom prototype can be produced and shipped within five working days.

Universal Air Filter products meet the following standards and classifications: UL 94 HF-1; UL 900 Class 2, CE; Telcordia NEBS GR-63-CORE and GR-78-CORE.
