Ahead in hoods for every kitchen design
Through extensive research and sophisticated dynamic simulations, Franke, the world’s largest decorative
hoods manufacturer, has developed a streamlined, market-leading portfolio which is second-to-none for both the kitchen installer and designer.
The collection has been designed to cover all kitchen designs, sizes and budgets and each product illustrates the company’s prowess as a kitchen solution innovator.
There are sizes, capacities, designs and prices to suit all requirements and so the process of choosing the best hood for a specific kitchen design has been made easy.
One example is the Decorative Brick Sil-K range. Franke identified the major cause of noise in hoods and has launched this range to beat it – the Decorative Brick Sil-K 90 and Decorative Brick Sil-K Island. Perfect for open plan living, soundproofing partitions in the hoods, which increase sound absorbing surfaces, eliminate noise flow in favour of silent air flow. Sil-K technology therefore cancels out sound emissions coming from the diffuser and filters, thereby reducing hood sound power by 12DB (A). 16 hoods equipped with Silk-K technology make the same amount of noise as one standard hood.
Another is the cutting-edge Swing cooker hood in a white glass finish (pictured) in addition to the black glass finish. Offering a bold statement which embraces monochrome colour, t he Swing hood provides a stylish and sophisticated fashion statement. The novel hood features a stainless steel exterior façade that swings open in the middle to reveal bold, inset lighting. Its eight-speed – plus the ‘intensive’ setting option – touch control extractor features quality technology, including optional remote-controlled operation (making it perfect for open-plan kitchen-diners and those with special needs). In addition, its 24-hour continuous ventilation provides a constant flow of fresh air in the kitchen all day long.
Franke also offers aluminium cassette grease filters, with the convenience of an indicator when they need to be removed and conveniently put in the dishwasher.
