Since 2007, BORA Lüftungstechnik GmbH, headquartered in Raubling, Upper Bavaria, has successfully developed and sold cooktop extractor systems that draw vapours downwards thanks to the use of patented technology. The innovative BORA Basic, BORA Classic and BORA Professional product ranges are sold in 58 countries worldwide.
BORA founder Willi Bruckbauer has a vision: the end of the extractor hood. The patent he developed has multiple advantages: the premium-quality systems are more effective than conventional hoods, extremely quiet, energy efficient and easy to clean. They enable maximum design freedom for kitchens and a clear view.
The New BORA Professional
Milestone and symbiosis of innovation, aesthetics and effectiveness
Raubling. BORA Lüftungstechnik GmbH, the manufacturer of innovative cooktop extractor systems, was presenting another product innovation at the Cologne International Interiors Show 2017 to coincide with the Bavarian company’s tenth birthday. The new BORA Professional boasts an electric cooktop extractor, intelligent operator guidance and is a true modular high-end system consisting of six components.
Innovation and development are part of the BORA company philosophy. BORA Professional, which was the company’s first product and laid the foundations for the BORA principle in 2007, has now been perfected in terms of innovation, functionality, simplicity and the highest level of performance. The result is a genuinely self-contained system – a machine consisting of a cooktop, extractor, motor, duct (BORA Ecotube), filter and wall sleeve (BORA 3box). In this system, the cooktop and cooktop extractor communicate with each other.
BORA Professional is their latest generation extractor knob with intelligent operator guidance and electrical hood system cover flaps in the typical BORA design.
A fundamental innovation is the change from what was previously a mechanical system to the
electrical BORA system. When a cooking zone is switched on, the cover flaps open automatically and virtually silently. At the end of the cooking process, it closes again so it is completely flush and with no visible joint gap. Beneath the filter in the cooktop extractor is a drip pan for fats.
The knobs with the user interface on the front of the cooking surface form the heart of the system and enable smart operator guidance: For the first time, the operating elements incorporate the system’s intelligence, making BORA Professional the most innovative development to date. The temperature is displayed on the knob where it can be adjusted with a combined touch and rotation movement. More functions and programmes, including the cooktop extractor controls, are also executed from here. The cooking surface available and the cooking zone can be utilised to the full. This makes the BORA Professional cooking surfaces and cooking zones one of the largest available on the market. The new product enables really easy cleaning thanks to its wider extractor opening and easily removable elements.
