Installation information for cooktops with an integrated hood
Discover the right installation option for your kitchen
Cooktops with an integrated hood are the perfect solution for an island bench setting without the obstruction of an overhead rangehood. Downdraft ventilation also allows for the cooktop to be installed in other non-traditional areas, such as under a window or slanted ceiling.
Ducted or recirculated extraction?
In a ducted extraction configuration, a standard flat duct system discharges the cooking steam and vapours through an opening in the wall in order to eliminate the cooking odours.
In a recirculation configuration, the cooking steam is additionally filtered through powerful and durable active filters. One set of filters eliminate odours and can be accessed comfortably and conveniently, as they are integrated into the appliance itself. The recirculation filters can be installed behind the drawers or at the base cabinet area. Which further facilitates planning and expands your design options. Recirculation configurations are possible as ductless, partly ducted or fully ducted configurations to meet any design requirements or preferences
Countertop sizeBe aware a vented cooktop weight combined with a full load of cookware and their contents can weigh as much as 60kg! Therefore your worktop must be able to provide a level of stability. Ideally, the workbench is more than 16mm thick.
If your countertop is thinner than 16mm, a vented cooktop can still be installed, simply ensure that an installation depth of ≥ 16mm is achieved in the installation area – for example, by doubling the material.
How to maximise storage space?Flexible adapter parts are available for different drawer and countertop depths.
Thanks to flat duct elements, you're free to decide on the depth of your kitchen drawers. Because of the flat duct elements being installed behind the furniture in all configurations, there are no restrictions on drawer depths.
AccessoriesAll 2-in-1 cooktops with ventilation must be combined with respective installation accessories and where applicable ducting elements in order to ensure the safety and operation of your appliance. Accessories must be purchased separately based on the installation situation.
