The cabin filter purifies the air which passengers and the driver breathe in the cabin of the car. This filter is extremely important, because polluted air significantly affects our health and our concentration while driving. Polluted air is a very serious threat. According to official data from the European Environment Agency:
- Due to polluted air, over 460,000 people die prematurely in Europe alone.
- The problem of over-polluted air concerns 80% of the residents of all urban areas in Europe.
WHAT DISTINGUISHES FILTRON CABIN FILTERS?
Effective filter media
In FILTRON cabin air filters, we use high-quality filtration media which have electrostatic properties, and thus are able to stop even microscopic particles of harmful pollutants (several dozen times smaller than the diameter of a human hair).
Innovative Antibacterial Protection
The BIOKNIGHT antibacterial system is used in all FILTRON cabin filters. It effectively removes bacteria and allergens which are harmful to our health. This system is based on the use of an odourless, non-toxic, coating on the filter medium, invisible to the human eye. Learn more about the BIOKNIGHT system
Installation manual included in the packaging
FILTRON's sophisticated fuel filters come with an accurate, illustrated installation manual for replacing filters. All instructions can also be found on our website.
Appropriately selected amount of activated carbon
Cabin filters with active carbon not only stop particulate matter, but also harmful gases and odours. The amount of carbon used in a given filter is selected so that the filter can effectively purify the air from harmful volatile organic compounds for a long period of time.

HOW THE CABIN FILTER WORKSWATCH THE VIDEO
TYPES OF CABIN FILTERS
Cabin filters have a filter barrier made of fully synthetic non-woven fabric. The ability to filter particles as small as a few microns is achieved through attracting pollutants by electrostatically charged fibres. Synthetic fibres are not hygroscopic, which means water does not cause cabin filters to deform.
Activated carbon filters
Activated carbon filters stop not only solid particles, but also harmful gases. Activated carbon has a porous structure which is similar to graphite. It attracts harmful gases by means of adsorption. Activated carbon also absorbs unpleasant odours entering the passenger cabin from the outside.
