Pollen / Cabin Filters
What You Need To Know About Pollen Filters
Pollen filters protect from not only pollen but dust, debris and other airborne material. The cabin filter acts as prevention from such material entering the vehicle. The material entering the vehicle can clog up the heating and air-conditioning systems, so we recommend regular replacement to ensure these unwanted materials are filtered from entering the vehicle. Recommendation for pollen filter replacement would be around once a year to ensure protection from build-up of unwanted smells and materials in the vehicle.
What are the different pollen filters available?
Pollen filters are also known as cabin filters will reduce the overall chance of pollen and contaminants entering the cabin of the vehicle. There are carbon and non-carbon types. The specification of the products will state the type of carbon filter. If it does not state carbon these will normally be non-carbon. Non-carbon filters are manufactured from paper. Whereas carbon will be a combination of paper and carbon for maximum prevention from pollen and other materials entering the vehicle.
If the product states that there is 2 per carton this means that your vehicle will require 2 filters per vehicle. One carton will contain 2 filters to suit the vehicle filter.
