  • - drill;
  • - tape measure;
  • - dowels;
  • - socket;

1. Guarantee of safe and effective work of extract is its correct mounting made taking into account all necessary requirements. Depending on type of extract it can be attached to wall, to arrange separately in the center of kitchen or to build in cabinet.

2. Height at which it is necessary to install the device depends on type of kitchen stove. If the kitchen is equipped with cooking surface or the electric stove, the extract has to hang not below, than on 0.5 m from it. If in your kitchen – gas-fire, this distance, in connection with ignition hazard of the filter of extract from naked flame, has to exceed 0.65 m.

3. Maximum height of arrangement of extract is from 0.7 to 0.85 m. If you wish to hang up the device even above, choose more powerful model. At increase in the specified distance the product four times exceeding average extract on power will be required twice.

4. Width of the device depends on the plate sizes. The extract has to be equal to width of cooking surface or exceed it, but not to be already at all. Than more extract, that with bigger efficiency it will take away air and to purify it. Also filter density has great influence on operation of the device. For example, smaller filter which purifies air better will require the engine more powerfully.

Pay attention to diameter of exhaust outlet of the extract: the it is more, the bigger amount of air will be banished. The air duct has to have minimum of bends. You fix it to ceiling or wall by means of decorative holders or collars.
