Q9G1LB0043 The difference is Gaggenau. The new ventilation 200 series. Gaggenau Hausgeräte GmbH P.O. Box 830101 81701 Munich Germany www.gaggenau.com The AI 230 island hood and the AW 240 wall-mounted hood differ in their design. The island hood (shown on the left with a stepped design) occupies a central position in the kitchen. The wall-mounted hood (shown on the right with a box design) is a classic eye-catcher above the cooking area. Each model is available in both designs and naturally operates effectively while producing very little noise. The AW 250 angled canopy hood is a special variant that makes cooking even more enjoyable by providing extra space above the cooking area. The harmonious view of its underside accentuates the cooktop. The AI 280 Coanda hood features the exclusive Coanda ventilation technology. It effectively catches vapours and guides them directly into the exhaust channel, thus achieving effortlessly what others can only manage when running at maximum speed. The VL 041 downdraft ventilation fits harmoniously next to or between appliances of the Vario cooktops 200 series and effectively extracts steam. An ideal solution for open kitchens or kitchen islands. The AH 900 flat kitchen hood, mounted in the upper cabinet, is extremely space-saving as it is only pulled out when needed. Invented by Gaggenau, this design continues to be very popular. The rim extraction filter is uniquely effective. Behind the stainless steel cover is a full-width mesh filter that quietly and efficiently removes grease from cooking vapours. The recirculation module is as effective as it is efficient. The activated charcoal filter absorbs odour particles immediately so that only clean air is returned to the kitchen. An odour reduction of 95 percent is thus achieved. Remarkably effective and offering compelling design and functionality, the ventilation 200 series provides clean air in any kitchen. Whether discreet like the downdraft ventilation or making a strong architectural statement like the island hoods, the 200 series models have three things in common: they are powerful, individual and efficient. The 200 series thus offers a model to suit every taste. New to this series is the recirculation module, which allows island and wall-mounted hoods to be run in air extraction and recirculation mode. Alongside aesthetic design, functionality plays a key role. Simple operation with automatic function is the primary winning feature: The fan adjusts its speed automatically to the amount of steam entering the hood, allowing you to devote all your attention to cooking. More details can be found on our website. The Coanda effect takes advantage of an aerodynamic principle. The unique shape of the ventilation hood leads to the emergence of an additional air current along its front edge. This air current traps rising condensation before it can escape over the edge of the appliance, and drives it straight into the outlet.
