Schweigen silent range

This Schweigen rangehood is not part of Schweigen’s “silent” range. The silent range doesn’t have the motor in the hood; instead it is installed through the roof and sits under the eaves or on an outside wall. Our lab can’t test “silent” rangehoods with an externally mounted motor.
