From the Bavarian town of Raubling, BORA Lüftungstechnik GmbH is revolutionising the design and function of kitchens with their effective cooktop extractor systems BORA Professional, BORA Classic, BORA Basic and BORA Pure. The vision of “the end of the extractor hood” is what makes the founder Willi Bruckbauer an absolute pioneer.
The BORA principle is applied physics and no magic: Vapours and odours are suctioned away precisely where they arise - directly at the cooktop, straight from pots, roasters, pans or grills. BORA uses a cross flow which is greater than the rising speed of the cooking vapours - both simple and effective.
BORA stands for the highest quality standards for its products and services. The fact that the production sites are based in Germany and Austria ensures that these commitments are fulfilled. Only high-quality materials such as stainless steel and glass are used. BORA product lines are globally sold only by trained specialist suppliers to ensure first-class service.
All BORA cooktop extractors are making it possible for you to enjoy new freedom in the kitchen. The perfect combination of a highly effective cooktop extractor and a powerful cooktop draws attention with attractive aesthetics without compromising the clear view. BORA is the perfect solution for every room. The cooktops can be selected according to individual cooking preferences. Be it ceran, induction, surface induction, gas or tepan.
The success of the company and its products is also reflected by the numerous awards and acknowledgements such as the “365 Orte im Land der Ideen”, the German Entrepreneur Award, the red dot award, the Plus X Award, the German Design Award, the Iconic Award as well as the German Brand Award of the Good Design Award Chicago Athenaeum.
The BORA principle
BORA is synonymous with innovation and creativity in the kitchen. We have revolutionised the design and function of kitchens. The BORA principle is gaining increasing ground. We believe in our vision of ‘the end of the extractor hood’. We offer more freedom, enhanced functions and extraordinary design options. We set the highest quality standards for our products and services. The fact that our production sites are based in Germany and Austria ensures that we fulfil these commitments. We only use high-quality materials, such as stainless steel and glass, and avoid substances that are hazardous to the environment. We work with excellent preliminary suppliers including Schott, E.G.O. and ebm-papst for our motor technology. This enables us to guarantee that we only bring top-quality products onto the market which are good for our customers and environmentally sustainable.
The BORA principle is catching on
More and more manufacturers are realising that our vision of the end of the extractor hood offers new kitchen design options and outstanding customer benefits. We remain focused. Cooking vapours and odours are no match for BORA – we suction them away precisely where they arise, i.e. directly at the cooktop. We extract vapours straight from pots, roasters, pans or grills by means of physics, not by magic! We simply use a cross flow which is greater than the speed at which the cooking vapours rise. We work with patents. Our cooktop extractor systems are so effective and energy efficient that their performance goes far beyond that of conventional extractor hoods and modern interpretations.
BORA – the cooktop extractor
We are extremely active in research and development with 55 international patent applications currently pending. Extractor hoods are assessed according to DIN EN 61591, which measures the fan power, volume and grease filtering. BORA devised the cleanrate procedure in order to compare the performance of different systems objectively in terms of their ability to eliminate the unwanted side-effects of cooking. The cleanrate refers to the air purity level while cooking. The higher the odour particles rise, the more they contaminate the air in the kitchen. Conventional extractor hoods only extract some of the vapours generated. In tests, BORA achieves a cleanrate of almost 100% directly at head height – a level that traditional extractor hoods can only dream of. Cooking with BORA is like cooking in the fresh air.
Constantly improving – constantly progressing
BORA is now offering its customers an extended warranty for every BORA cooktop extractor system. To benefit, simply go to www.mybora.com and enter the code on the sticker on the cooktop extractor. This will automatically extend your warranty by another year, free of charge.
Our Planning department helps our specialist suppliers to implement your system in the best possible way. BORA’s very own international service team deals with any problems that can only be resolved effectively on site, such as a cracked glass cooktop or a filter replacement.
