A Better Solution for Hospitality
and Multi-Family Suites

Friedrich's Vert-I-Pak® is a quiet, energy efficient option for extended stay properties, suites, assisted living, student housing and commercial spaces.

Ducted and closet-mounted, Vert-I-Pak eliminates the need for multiple thru-the-wall units. The packaged Vert-I-Pak unit is installed out of sight, so guests enjoy a more attractive, more homelike appearance.

Vert-I-Pak® is a Superior Product

What you’ll find on Friedrich Vert-I-Pak® What you'll find on many competitor's products
  1. Floating chassis design slides into a wall plenum and is held firmly in place by a sealing gasket, reducing noise from vibration transfer.
  2. ½ inch foil-backed insulation added on the inside of the chassis to reduce sound transmission into the guest room.
  3. Efficiencies above industry standards with EERs up to 10.7.
  4. Condensate removal system uses slinger ring technology to cool the coil and increase efficiency.
  5. Dynamically balanced blower with large, vibration-absorbing motor mounts for smooth and quiet operation.
  6. Patented telescoping plenums (accessory) easily adapt to more installations.
  7. 5 year limited warranty* (on the sealed system) includes labor.
  1. Chassis is screwed into the wall plenum. Metal-on-metal contact transfers vibration, increasing operating noise under typical conditions. Noise is transferred through the walls and into the room.
  2. No insulation on the unit to reduce noise transmission into the guest room.
  3. Hard plastic feet on the unit base which are less durable and transfer harsh vibration noise.
  4. Different plenums needed based on varying wall depths.
  5. No labor warranty.
