SuperSleeve Expedites Mini-Split AC Installations

The SuperSleeve saves time, money and labor when retrofitting any brand or model of wall-mounted ductless mini-split evaporators in residential and commercial buildings.
Designed and developed by Marketair’s engineering department, the patent-pending, SuperSleeve eliminates the need for a second jobsite technician or a temporary support bracket to hold the evaporator in place during a retrofit installation. The 3-inch-diameter (I.D.) (7.5-cm) SuperSleeve is flanged on both ends for a tight, secure fit and telescopes from 6 to 12-inches (15 to 30-cm) to accommodate most wall thicknesses. 

The SuperSleeve design goes beyond conventional wall sleeves and features an innovative integral positive slope guide for the condensate drain hose. Although the sleeve is installed level, the drain hose guide sill ensures a 3/8-inch (9.5-mm) downward pitch away from the evaporator to promote correct drainage. The hose compartment at the bottom of the sleeve holds standard insulated 5/8-inch (16-mm) condensate hose securely in place to ensure the pitch.   <<continue>>
