NRS System

Falmec has always striven to find a responsible and respectful approach to manage the relationship between their way of working and the effects on the environment.
GREEN DEAL is Falmec’s commitment to the environment that can be realistically maintained and developed for future generations. It has also been introduced to encourage everyone, from large businesses to the final consumers, to combine their efforts and work together in achieving a greener world.
Part of this commitment includes the new project NRS® Noise Reduction System which has obtained unbelievable results in noise level reduction, and therefore noise pollution, for Falmec extractors. The optimisation of air flow throughout the extractor eliminates any resistance - the principal cause of noise when extractors are operating.


86% less noisy* with the new Falmec NRS®

  • More efficiency;
  • better use of power;
  • less noise;
  • lower fuel consumption;


These are the four main positive results achieved thanks to Falmec NRS®.


The new NRS® project has been developed by Falmec in collaboration with laboratories specialised in the study of airflow dynamics. This collaboration, alongside the use of sound absorbing materials, has achieved incredible results.
The dynamics of the airflow being drawn through the extractor was studied using innovative computer software; this allowed Falmec to develop the products so that airflow is optimised, eliminating any resistance, the principal cause of noise in extraction.
Falmec also invested time and resources in the development of new materials that would best suit to this particular application because of their sound absorbing qualities. These materials have been designed to contain any noise produced by the movement of air, further increasing the reductions in noise already achieved by the optimisation of airflow.


That is why Falmec can say they have the QUIETEST COOKER HOODS IN THE WORLD.



Finally, a cookerhood that cannot be heard

In order to reach the best performances in terms of noise reduction and to maximise the results of our NRS® technology, Falmec suggest that the product is installed correctly according to the mounting instructions supplied. For maximum efficiency and performance, it is important to ensure that the extractor, in ducted mode, is connected to the outside using the special sound-absorbing piping and curve that are supplied with the extractor.


New high performance charcoal filter

The new Noise Reduction System reaches the best performance when connected to the outside. For this reason, we strongly suggest the exhausting version and the use of the NRS® elements.
Anyway it is possible to use the extractor in recirculation mode, but in this case the new optional charcoal filter for air purification is required. For NRS® extractors it is also avaible a new kind of filter with a high purification capacity and efficiency.



  • Washable and reusable charcoal filter;
  • 75% filtration capacity;
  • With normal use, the filters need to be ‘reactivated’ every three months;
  • Filter lifespan is approximately three years, after this time replacement is recommended;
  • Metallic handle;
  • Aluminium frame and inner layers;


  • Wash the new high performance filter in the dishwasher with a gentle cleaning soap and temperatures no higher than 65C.  We strongly recommend washing the filter alone;
  • After the washing reactivate the filter by warming it in the oven at 100C for ten minutes.
