New innovative extractor hoods from Blanco by Gutmann are show stoppers
Show-stopping cooker hoods are increasingly in demand, featuring the ever-developing technology in this area. All Blanco by Gutmann hoods are handcrafted to the highest standards and all offer the highest levels of air movement and a host of innovative but practical features.
The Blanco by Gutmann Silla features a new and powerful state-of-the-art design for external, internal or recirculating extraction options. Hand-made, with no rivets or bolts, the tower unit in high quality stainless steel has an edgeless body, superbly framing an illuminated glass central panel, which lights up the whole chimney. LED lighting is used for the filter panels, while the ingenious option for removing the filters retains the perfect simplicity and lines of this beautiful hood. Air movement is a very high 1200 cu3/ph for the internal and recirculating models - and higher still with a more powerful motor for the external model.
The Blanco by Gutmann iHood is a new innovation in hood technology, introducing an integrated playing station for the iPod or iPhone. The clear-cut lines and high-quality materials, including glass and aluminium, produce a beautiful, contemporary design to enhance any kitchen. The edge extraction between the frame and the glass offers superb functionality.The iHood has exceptionally high air movement at 1200 m3/ph for the internal and recirculating models; even higher if an external motor is used. The hood has a two-part light concept composed of ambient light and LED function. The inclusion of the iStation adds a modern living dimension to the hood making this a stunning looking appliance.
Blanco by Gutmann also offers a range of 'invisible' extractor hoods, including the new Invisible, which literally has an invisible ventilation system solution that extracts to an external motor and frees valuable living space in the kitchen. Operated by a touch control panel on the worktop, which is wired to a 600W control box positioned within the Island unit, the control box is then wired to the external motor. The air is sucked across the ceiling into an air chamber, through metal grease filters and along a ducting run towards the motor. It has variable fitting positions...however, there is a maximum distance of 1.5m between the island unit and the chamber and a maximum ceiling height of 3m. There is no compromise on functionality or highest performance extraction, just an experience of visual freedom in the kitchen.
