Bungee cord

On smaller external condensers we use our Wrap Around RABScreen  which is then secured with a bungee cord.  This makes the RABScreen  air intake filter screen easy to fit and remove for maintenance. No specialist skills required. Perfect for smaller condenser units.

The RABScreen  air intake screens can be mounted in a metal frame to aid installation into filter banks and air handling units.  Pressed steel, folded steel, aluminium and profiled sections are available but we normally recommend galvanised steel or stainless steel. Just ask the question if you want something different for your filter screen. Great for cooling coil protection
