About Noveko(TM) Filtration Solutions
The filters incorporating Noveko's patented technologies consist of multiple layers of synthetic fibre built into a rigid aluminum framework, making them perfectly leak-proof and resistant to variations in temperature and humidity. Their superior filtration effectiveness enables users to achieve energy savings related to their ventilation systems. Their increased durability, combined with the fact that they are cleanable and recyclable, significantly reduces the number of filters used and the costs associated with their replacement and the elimination of waste, making them an ideal eco-friendly solution. It is notably the incorporation of antimicrobial agents into the filter fibres, thanks to Noveko's patented antimicrobial filtration technology, that protects the filters against deterioration due to the action of microorganisms and accounts for their cleanability and durability.
