What makes our Vert-I-Pak different?

Our ultra-quiet operation is possible because of design and installation advantages competitors’ systems don’t have:

Superior to whole building systems

Friedrich Vert-I-Pak is the flexible, attractive way to heat and cool, with a number of important cost and maintenance advantages over whole-building systems:

  • Lower installed cost
  • Independent metering (no need to prorate for multi-tenant applications)
  • Individual temperature set point (one unit can heat and others can cool)
  • Less risk: If one unit needs replacing or repairs, the remaining rooms remain habitable
  • Easy access for maintenance, repair and replacement

Vert-I-Pak also can be ducted to multiple rooms, which is ideal for suites, extended-stay properties and offices.

More attractive building interiors and exteriors

Vert-I-Pak units have a small 23"Wx23 "Dx32 "H footprint, install in a typical mechanical closet, and are completely self-contained. The concealed installation contributes to a more upscale, homelike interior. Unit access panels are less obtrusive and are 40% smaller than many competitors’.

Building exteriors show only an attractive, extruded aluminum grille that attaches to the outdoor section of the wall plenum. The VPSC2 can be ordered in custom colors for additional design options. And building exteriors are free from refrigerant lines that can run between floors on other types of product installations. There’s no clutter or risk of unsightly rust stains from exterior condensing units, and no need for vandalism barriers.

3-way slide-out chassis

Installation flexibility is critical on construction sites. Unlike its competition, Vert-I-Pak can be installed from any interior side. Slide Vert-I-Pak in from the right, left or front.
