The “Red Dot“ is the coveted seal of quality for products with high design quality. 

“Especially the Red Dot award “innovative product“ for our Downline Performance with the maintenance-free filter system permalyt® makes us very proud. With the Downline family, we not only offer significant design objects for the kitchen, but also the highest vapour capture and best air purification with the patented berbel principle. Our trough fans with the berbel separator unit provide consistently strong grease separation while at the same time requiring less energy,“ emphasises berbel Managing Director Karl von Bodelschwingh, who is delighted along with the entire berbel team.

The recipe for best air
The self-regenerating and maintenance-free berbel permalyt® filter has been new to the Downline family range since January 2021. The filter system reliably and permanently transforms unpleasant odours in the kitchen into clean air. The filter mats of the berbel permalyt® filters are made of a special type of active carbon that allows two modes of operation. In normal operation, the air flows through the filter mats and captures the odorous substances. The odour binding capacity is up to 97 percent. After a certain duration of use, the regeneration process starts in the closed filter system. A thermocatalytic process neutralises the odours with the help of a catalyst. The first recirculating air filter system that regenerates itself – industrial technology for the home – maintenance-free - from berbel, the specialist for extractor hoods.
