Commercial Air Filtration Products for the Hospitality Industry
3M Announces Brand Change To Commercial Air Filters
In January, 2014, 3M Purification Inc. initiated a brand change of its Commercial HVAC filters from Filtrete™ to the 3M™ brand.
The decision was based on third party research 3M conducted within the commercial building facilities market segment. The research showed that 3M™ and Filtrete™ ranked first and second as most recognized brands and both had strong trust and innovation connotation. However, the 3M brand was perceived to be more related to commercial and industrial uses, while Filtrete™ related more to residential use.
The new branding was formally announced at the 2014 AHR show in New York City, the largest international HVAC industry tradeshow, and supported by formal press release to national media. Attached you will find a copy of the press release.
Sharing the 3M brand will allow Commercial HVAC filters to join other 3M products offered into the commercial building facility market under one singular trusted brand, making it easier for customers to identify our filters with the quality and innovative design they’ve come to expect from this brand.
3M Commercial Air Filtration Products Benefits Roof Top HVAC Units
Many quick serve restaurants have HVAC systems located on the roof top. This requires manual change out of filters, often as frequently as once per month, depending on the filter. In 2012, a franchise owner of a major quick serve restaurant, searching for fewer change-outs and better energy efficiency, approached 3M about a solution. Impressed by the design and technology that give 3M filters low pressure drop and long life, he decided to trial the filters.
The franchise owner tested the 3M™ solution for 15 months and discovered that the benefits exceeded his expectations. As he'd hoped, the 3M solution required up to 24 fewer trips to the rooftop each year. In addition, the 3M technology delivered lower energy consumption, as well as a more robust design that stood up to rigorous environmental conditions. Plus, because the filters last longer, change-out is greatly diminished along with a significant reduction in CO2 footprint and waste — without any capital expense.
3M Filter Solutions for In-room Heating and Air Conditioning PTAC Units
3M also offers filter solutions for your in-room heating and air conditioning units. To help capture airborne dust that can deposit on these units, while at the same time, maintaining good airflow through the unit, we recommend using 3M™ High Air Flow Air Filters. They are electrostatically charged for enhanced particle capture and retention. They are constructed from an array of open flow channels and due to their self-supporting design, 3M High Air Flow filters are easily installed and replaced.
