Elica has launched three new WiFi-connected extractors that can be controlled via the Elica App on a smartphone or tablet or using “voice assistants” like Alexa and Google Home.
The new facility enables homeowners to remotely control extraction speeds and lighting functions, whilst the extractors themselves can advise homeowners when grease filters need cleaning or high-performance charcoal filters needs regenerating.
The new connected models include Super Plat, an ultra slim wall-mounted cooker hood with multi-directional fume capture. Designed in keeping with the trend for minimalism and clean lines Super Plat perfectly fits the linear kitchen style. It is available in two distinctive material finishes: cast iron and grey glass, and black glass.
Its Multi-d Capture function ensures extraction takes place from all round the hood’s perimeter and gives it a maximum airflow of 730 m3/h. Super Plat is also equipped with a dimmer to adjust the lighting to create the optimum environment in the cooking area. Lullaby@ is a range of ceiling hoods from Elica that is ideal for islands or peninsulas in contemporary in kitchens and, unusually for a ceiling hood, that can also be installed in duct-out or recirculating mode without additional outlets.
With its natural oak or soft white finish, it works especially well in kitchens featuring materials such as wood, brick or natural stone. Those who prefer their cooker hoods built-in to a cabinet should consider new SLEEK2.0@. The latest version of Elica’s Sleek models is now Energy Efficiency Class A but has an increased maximum airflow of 700 m³/h.
