VERT-I-PAK IS A SUPERIOR PRODUCT
Advanced features 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.
1.
2.
½ inch foil-backed insulation added on the inside of the
chassis to reduce sound transmission into the guest room.
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.
3.
Efficiencies above industry standards with EERs up to 10.4.
4.
Condensate removal system uses slinger ring technology to
cool the coil and increase efficiency.
5.
Dynamically balanced blower with large, vibrationabsorbing motor mounts for smooth and quiet operation.
6.
Patented telescoping plenums (accessory) easily adapt to
more installations.
7.
5 year limited warranty*; 1 year labor warranty.
* See warranty documentation for details.

Friedrich engineered for quieter performance
Friedrich’s ‘Free Floating’ chassis design and superior insulation
help to eliminate vibration noise
The chassis slides into the wall plenum and a gasket firmly seals the chassis to the patented telescoping plenum. This eliminates vibration noises that are transmitted into the room in competitor’s metal-on-metal fixed installations. Extra thick, vibration-absorbing rubber grommets mounted on durable
base that is engineered for structural and acoustic integrity.
Foil-backed, 1/2” insulation
blanket inside the cabinet
reduces sound transmitted into

Save big on energy without
compromising guest comfort
FriedrichLink® thermostats, the energy
management solution for Friedrich Vert-I-Pak®
REAL TIME MOTION AND THERMAL OCCUPANCY SENSOR
Integrated Occupancy Sensor uses a combination of motion and thermal
sensing technologies for accurate occupancy detection at all times - no need
to install additional devices such as door switches or sensors.
WIRED OR WIRELESS INSTALLATION
Wired or wireless connectivity with extensive configuration options deliver
full compatibility and easy integration with virtually any packaged HVAC
system.
Friedrich’s EMRT1 and EMWRT1
thermostats use real-time motion
and thermal occupancy detection to
save energy.
When the room is unoccupied, the
thermostat automatically adjusts the
temperature to eliminate unnecessary heating and cooling.
5 ENERGY SAVINGS PRESETS
5 distinct energy saving modes make it easy to choose
the optimal energy saving settings for any property.
REMOTE MANAGEMENT*
Web-based remote management provides expansive
solutions for remote monitoring and configuration from
any computer connected to the Internet.
Built-in Wireless Networking enables remote management without using
or interfering with property’s existing wireless infrastructure. True mesh
networking eliminates the need for additional networking equipment such as
signal repeaters or multiple data collection boxes.
Monitor room status and see the
operation, occupancy and energy
efficiency status of each room.
*Requires an optional “Online Connection Kit” and a one-time license fee. Optional Humidity Control Feature available through
Remote Management. See accessories page 6.
Advanced Energy Saving Features
Fully configurable energy
saving modes maximize
energy savings without
compromising guest
comfort.
Setback optimization continuously monitors temperature
recovery rate in the room and
adjusts setback temperature
to maximize energy savings.
Temperature setback
automatically adjusts the
temperature when the room
is unoccupied in order to
save energy.
Setback limits allow
maximum and minimum
room temperature to be
set when the room is
unoccupied.
Temperature recovery
calculates the setback
temperature so that the
desired temperature can
be restored within specified
time.
Set point limits prevent
guests from setting room
temperature to extreme,
energy-wasting levels.
