Extractor systems - the most important types.
To help you find the right one for you and your kitchen from the multitude of options, here is an overview. What unites all the variants: at Naber you’ll find the matching air duct systems and all the necessary accessories.
Chimney hood: the decorative classic
It is mounted freely or between wall units. Equipped with surface or edge extraction, common widths are 60, 90 and 120 cm. The exhaust air can be routed inside the ceiling, through the wall behind it or through a lateral exhaust duct.
Island hood: powerful eye-catcher
The island hood is equipped with surface or edge extraction. The free positioning in the room makes high demands on successful design and high suction power, so that the vapour does not spread in the room. The exhaust air guidance through the ceiling has to be planned in good time. However, a retrofitted duct guided laterally below the ceiling is also possible.
Wall hood /overhead hood: creatively and functionally exciting
If the hob is next to the wall, these variants offer plenty of headroom and an airy ambiance even in smaller kitchens. The almost vertical or oblique suction with covered or openly-visible filter elements also requires perfect "background technology" so that the vapour is extracted as completely as possible.
Hob extraction / downdraft: integrated into the hob
Headroom and design options are very good for this type of hood. The reliable downward extraction of the rising vapours requires a very high suction capacity. As standard, the wet cooking vapours are often blown into the base area via an activated carbon and grease filter. Here, an exhaust air solution from Naber or the particularly quiet recirculating air filter system COMPAIR® GREENflow are more effective.
Retractable range hood: integrated, but separate
Available in widths of 60 or 90 cm, the system is installed behind the hob and can be lowered into the worktop. The vapour is sucked back and down. The fan and air guidance are located in the base cabinet. The retractable hood is also suitable for cooking islands and has a particularly high suction capacity. The same conditions apply to the air routing as for downdraft systems.
Built-in hoods: with flat visor or intermediate built-in hood
These variants with a pull-out filter or a fold-out furniture door are fully housed in a wall cupboard and barely visible. For flat visor hoods, the vapour visor is pulled out to the front. Thanks to the low space requirement, a small part of the wall cupboard can, for example, be used as a spice cabinet. Intermediate built-in hoods completely fill the wall cupboard. Both variants are available in widths of 60 and 90 cm.
Built-under hoods: good performance also for small appliances
These hoods, which are in the lower power range, are mounted under a shorter wall unit or completely freely above the hob. They are offered in 50 and 60 cm width. Although often used as a recirculation model, exhaust air ventilation is also possible with most devices.
Fan components: for cooks with great expectations
Here, the extraction of the vapour via a visor and the powerful fan are separated. The motor unit is mounted, for example, in the attic. The high air capacity requires a very high-performant duct system. Care should be taken to extract the resulting condensate if the exhaust duct leads through unheated parts of the building. Here too, Naber has the right components in its programme.
Ceiling fan: built-in efficiency with a clear view
A ceiling fan is a remote-controlled flat extractor hood, preferably installed directly above the hob in the suspended ceiling, where applicable. This variant is particularly suitable for cooking islands, as the view in the living/dining area is not restricted. The mostly 90 centimetre-wide devices have edge extraction. The recommended distance to the hob is up to 150 cm.
