Isodrive® Motors

Schweigen develops silent rangehoods that are unique. By removing the motor from the rangehood and placing it on the outside through the roof, wall or eave - noise, smoke and odours are completely removed from the kitchen.

The innovative German-made Isodrive® motor is recognised as the quietest, most energy-efficient and highest-powered domestic extraction unit available today. It pulls steam, smoke and odours outside, rather than pushing like conventional rangehoods. Any external noise is absorbed by ambient sounds, allowing your kitchen to reclaim its rightful place as the hub of the home.

Best of all, there's one for almost any cooking style and requirement.

First, decide where you’d like the rangehood to be. Discreetly mounted as an undermount, the classic option of a wallmount, modern entertaining with an island hood above a central benchtop, or sleek and dynamic ceiling cassette. For outdoor rooms and patio dining areas, we have the BBQ alfresco hoods, and for every other room in the house, our multi-purpose exhaust fan has you covered.

Whichever you choose, we have the right motor to best suit your cooking needs. Dishes high in spice ingredients or with intense smoke generated from a wok or grill, require much stronger extraction power through the filters to perform effectively.

Installing your new Schweigen rangehood

To maximise the performance of your rangehood, it’s important to select a motor power option that suits the cooking technique you use the most.

Now that you’ve chosen where your rangehood will be in your kitchen, and which motor best suits your cooking needs - it’s time for the exciting install. For a new kitchen, your architect or builder will be best-placed to recommend the right hood placement for your home layout. For an existing kitchen area, motors are most commonly installed in the roof or wall.
