New Uni-Grid Support from UAF Fits in Thinnest Filter Assemblies

Flattened grid maintains sleek filter design and maximizes media protection

SAUGET, Ill. - The new, ultra-thin Uni-grid support from Universal Air Filter® is the perfect solution for design engineers looking for a support grid that will complement any thin, low-profile air filter assembly while maintaining the sleek filter design throughout the entire cross-section.

Other expanded metal grids contain louvers that can get caught on chassis edges during installation and removal, but the Uni-grid support's smooth surface will slide in and out of equipment easily. Once installed, the Uni-grid will reduce bowing and bulging commonly found in the center of filter assemblies.

"The Uni-grid support prevents the filter media from sagging beyond the frame, keeping the media within the overall filter assembly thickness profile and offering great protection for it as well," said Mike Miano, engineering and sales manager at UAF. "This is extremely beneficial for applications where the filter is installed near the fan intake area."

The support adds durability and ruggedness to the filter assembly and has been designed to a high open-area percentage in order to maximize the allowable airflow through the filter.

A design engineer looking to evaluate a filter or any other UAF product can access UAF's complimentary, round-the-clock prototype service available worldwide via The prototype service provides design engineers with assistance in meeting critical design, testing and evaluation deadlines for air filter media. To receive a prototype, the engineer can submit a request on the Internet or via telephone, fax or e-mail. Once the prototype is submitted, it is produced and shipped within five working days.

Universal Air Filter products are RoHS Compliant and meet the following standards and classifications: UL 94 HF-1, ATCA, UL 900 Class 2, CE, Telcordia, NEBS GR-78-CORE and GR-63-CORE, micro TCA and ETSI.
