Vario Retractable Downdraft Ventilation with LED Lighting - 400 Series
AL 400
The AL 400 is an extendable table ventilation system which disappears completely into the work area when not in use. Vapors and odors are extracted directly where they arise quietly and effectively - an ideal solution for kitchen islands and open areas. Three power levels plus an intensive mode ensure fresh air while a dimmable LED array bathes the work area in bright light. Both flush-mounted and conventional installation are possible.

The new Vario 400 Series can be surface or flush mounted thanks to the precision crafting of 1/8" stainless steel.

Overhead hood, retractable AL 400 or VL 414 downdraft ventilation may be used with the Vario 400 Series.
