berbel: Living in a limited space

The little kitchen

Mini-apartments and tiny houses are the topics that are discussed in the media today. A social phenomenon that is the result of demographic facts.

The number of single households is increasing steadily and many couples and young families limit themselves to smaller living quarters with high real estate and rental prices in the city centers.

Urban Living is also characterized by professional nomads who work in a city during the week and are with their families at the weekend.

Built-in hoods from berbel: the solution for small kitchens

This has an impact on the construction and furnishing sectors. Mini-apartments become micro-apartments, primarily in student cities. Small prefabricated houses are designed so that they can be placed on roofs of apartment blocks.

As a result, optimized installation equipment and detailed planning of the functional rooms is required. The smaller the kitchen, the more carefully it has to be thought out so that it still looks spacious and light.

The limited space requires an organized and ergonomic use of the kitchen furniture. Kitchen technology has to meet these requirements and also have to achieve the best performance with a compact size.

Four models for clean air and maximum flexibility

With the product family of built-in hoods, berbel offers four models that ensure clean air with optimal odor control.

The Firstline, Firstline Touch, Firstline Unseen and Glassline require little space, are optically discreet and, thanks to the berbel principle, work highly efficiently.

The patented berbel technology frees the kitchen quietly, reliably and permanently from fumes and unpleasant smells.

This happens only with the power of the centrifuge. The vapor plumes, which consist of air, water and fat, are drawn through a narrow and effective gap into the interior of the extractor hood.

The power gets a partner at the hood entrance: speed. Inside the hood, everything is deflected in a double arc. This creates centrifugal force, better known as centrifugal force, as you know it from the salad spinner.

Fats and oils are separated almost silently according to the same principle and the air can move on unhindered. The result: permanent, consistently high fat separation without performance-reducing fat filter technology.

Invisible helpers

The features of the powerful and quiet built-in hood models from berbel leave room for individual kitchen design. If you like it offensive, the Glassline or Firstline Touch built-in hood is the right choice.

The Firstline built-in hood also offers strong performance in the smallest of spaces. And the Firstline Unseen disappears almost invisibly into flat wall units. The built-in hoods from berbel show their strengths particularly in compact kitchens.

Depending on the model, you can choose between recirculation and exhaust air modes. With berbel EcoSwitch you even benefit from the advantages of both operating modes and can choose one depending on the weather or cooking situation.

In winter, the energy-saving recirculation mode is recommended. Here, the air is freed of odors by the hybrid filter and returned to the room.

This keeps the warm air inside and valuable energy is not wasted. This is an energy-saving and at the same time efficient air cleaning, especially in low-energy houses.

As an alternative to the conventional circulating air filter, berbel has developed a closed filter system as a cabinet installation. This leads the fumes from the hood directly out of the furniture and the interior of the cabinet does not come into contact with moist air.

Exhaust air operation comes into play when something burns or if there is a lot of moisture. At the push of a button, the smoke or moisture generated is banished from the kitchen outside.

berbel built-in hoods offer maximum flexibility. Thanks to their flat shape, they fit into the wall unit like a missing piece of the puzzle.

Because of the space-saving installation method, there is even room for a spice rack. The LED lighting ensures pleasant light on the hob.

In the kitchen industry, berbel has made a name for itself with its patented berbel principle. The berbel principle uses fat separation centrifugal force, so that no grease filter is needed.

As a result, this is highly efficient and, compared to conventional systems with grease filters, enables a permanently high level of grease separation.

Innovative technology, high quality materials, in house research, extensive quality controls and creative design meet the company’s own claim “Made in Germany”.
