Hella, a leading original equipment (OE) manufacturer and system supplier to the global automotive industry, has recently added antibacterial carbon activated cabin filters to its Hella Hengst range of OE quality filters.
The 38 new-to-range (NTR) references are available for a variety of vehicles, including Ford Focus C-Max, Mercedes Benz A and C class, and Sprinter, as well as Audi A3, A4 and A5. The range also extends to the majority of VW and SEAT models. These additions, which will be available from early 2018, can be easily identified with the letters ‘LB’ marked on the end of the Hella Hengst part numbers.
The main difference between the Hella Hengst carbon activated cabin filter and the new antibacterial version is that while both have excellent odour reduction properties, the latter can also reduce allergy problems caused by contaminants such as bacteria and mould fungi, which enter the passenger compartment through the ventilation system, thus tackling one of the growing issues facing road users by directly addressing the health concerns of vehicle occupants.
Today, modern vehicles have cabin filters located in a variety of places and that are sometimes challenging to fit, making it difficult for installers to service or replace them. To further assist technicians, Hella Hengst provides easy-to-follow installation instructions for all cabin filter types, including their locations, in every product pack.
As these additions demonstrate, the Hella Hengst range is consistently growing and with a complete range of 1,500 premium quality filters across 90,000 applications for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles, the company is showing its commitment to deliver the very best in terms of quality and availability to support the independent aftermarket.
