Comfort Tech Product Showcase Award

At Mechanical Systems Week 2012, 13 products were recognized as Product Showcase Award winners. Judges took into consideration the ease with which HVAC contractors can apply the technology, and the technical value of the product or service to the HVAC industry. We’ll feature these products each month in upcoming issues of Contracting Business. This month, we’re featuring Permatron’s PreVent air intake filters, the winner in the Miscellaneous category. For additional information on any of the products listed here, circle the appropriate number(s) on the reader service card at the back of this issue or visit

PreVent Air Intake Filtration Takes Top Prize

Permatron’s PreVent air intake filters provide the first line of defense in preventing debris from entering HVAC systems. PreVent filters are made of permanent, washable polypropylene with UV protection that withstands environmental moisture, fluctuating weather conditions or corrosive areas. Installation of the filter requires no system modifications because it’s custom made to the air intake dimensions and finished with either a flexible vinyl or rigid steel frame and affixed with grommets, hook/loop or magnetic strip attachment. The filter can be quickly cleaned with a broom or shop-vac, allowing for more service calls per day.
