Finally, a range hood that makes no noise.
You have probably heard of decibels for measuring sound but when it comes to assessing the whirring noise of kitchen cooker fans, you might start hearing about “sones”. Sones are quite interesting. They are subjective units of measurement, based on the psychological perception of how intense sound is. To give you an idea, one sone is roughly equal to the sound of a refrigerator running. Normal conversations take place at about four sones, and light traffic can get up to a sone reading of eight. Leading Italian range manufacturer, Falmec, have mastered a Noise Reduction System (NRS®) which has effectively halved the perceived sound, or sones, of their range hoods when you compare them to the standard fans on the market. NRS® is a new technology designed by scientists who specialize in fluid dynamics and, as a result, the Falmec Silence collection of seven range hoods are some of the quietest in the world.
