Planning the position of your cooker hood is absolutely crucial as to the effectiveness and performance of the cooker hoods lifespan.
First decide with your kitchen planner the position of your cooker, always if possible plan your built in cooker or range cooker on a outside wall, this will be the shortest route for ducting and most effective as to the performance of your cooker hood, “basically the shorter the run of ducting the better the performance of your cooker hood”.
Our choice as to the design and colour of our Island cooker hoods is one of the largest, we now supply 70cm Island cooker hoods up to 180cm Island cooker hoods, all with a full seven years free parts and labour warranty. (subject to registration)
Ceiling cooker hoods are now very desirable and all our new range of ceiling extractors are some of the best rated in performance in the UK.
The general rules when planning for a ceiling mounted cooker hood are: Whenever possible give your kitchen designer plenty of scope as and where your island units are to be place, the ceiling cooker hood must be directly above your cooker or hob and the maximum ducting run on any ceiling cooker hood is 6 meters to the outside wall. Some of our ceiling extractors have a detachable motor and it can be installed in a loft space away from the unit, this will allow for two things, low ceiling joists and a very quiet cooker hood, all of our ceiling cooker hoods are remote control operated and carry a full seven years warranty free of charge.
We now offer a variety of ceiling hoods with external motors. These motors have 1200m³/hr extraction rates and are all weather proof. Simply duct from your hood to the motor on either an outside wall or roof.
Luxair also offer ceiling hoods that can be recirculated if ducting is not possible. These use charcoal filters to purify the air. Hoods that use charcoal filters must have ducting vents available within close proximity of the so that the air can be returned to the room. If the hood is boxed in, the vents must be in the box otherwise the air will not be able to recirculate back in to the room.
Our brand new LA-90-DWN and LA-90-Turbo rise 500mm high, this allows for bigger pans and steaming pans, downdrafts that only rise 380mm are quite simply not as efficient in performance. All our downdraft and ceiling cooker hoods have a minimum extraction rate of 950m³/hr motor and come with all the kit you will need. We do not make the extractor look cheaper by adding the motor separately, quality extraction at its best is how our customers describe our products.
