Overhead Cabinet Rangehood Installation Position

It is also important to consider the bench-top and overhead cabinetry depth before installing the rangehood.
The information below is to be used as a guide only, drawings are not to scale and do not account for all circumstances.
The cooktop is centrally installed in the bench-top in the diagrams below.

When the overhead cabinetry is constructed and installed deeper than standard, ensure the rangehood is installed as close to the front as possible. This will increase the rangehood extraction results as there is a greater coverage of the cooktop surface area.

Step 2 - Choose the right IsoDrive Motor Size

The type of motor a Schweigen Silent Rangehood will require depends on the level of suction the user demands from the rangehood. This all depends on the type of food you cook and the amount of cooking you undertake. A rangehood with sufficient power will ensure that all smoke, steam and odours are removed from your kitchen. The guide below will help you choose the right motor configuration.
