Franke has introduced a new Greenline energy-efficiency standard for its brushless motor extractor hoods, emphasising its credentials as a brand that uses innovation to make everyday life less ordinary. The Greenline standard provides a quick and easy visual guide for retailers and consumers to identify Franke’s most energy-efficient models.
Four existing and five new Franke kitchen extractor hoods launched on April 1st feature brushless motors and LED lighting, earning them Franke’s Greenline status.
The innovative brushless motors of Franke’s Greenline hoods provide an 85% energy saving compared to a standard motor. The Greenline extractor hoods include the new Maris Plus 60, 80 and 90 hoods which are all rated ‘A+’, the new Maris T-Shape Anti-Condensation wall and island hoods and the existing Sinos all of which are rated ‘A’, and the iconic Swing hood.
The hoods are also packed with many other features expected of a premium extractor. The Maris T-Shape uses unique anti-condensation technology developed by Franke. All of the models feature multiple operating speeds with an intensive setting, cut off timers, digital displays and filter saturation indicators.
Says Jeanette Ward, communications manager at Franke:
“Consumers looking to reduce their carbon footprint as well as saving money are now prioritising energy efficiency. We have responded by introducing brushless motor technology into our extractor hoods and we will continue to increase our portfolio of A+ and A rated models. By introducing our Greenline standard, we are giving retailers and consumers an immediate benchmark to judge and decide on the brands they have confidence in for energy efficiency, as well as for quality.”
