Hello, what is the dB rating of the SL906L850 please - the onboard motor model
the dB rating is 58db on boost. However, individual installations will vary the dB rating, depending on acoustics and size of the room it may be slightly quieter or louder.
Is there a minimum distance the fan motor needs to be away from the hood when installing? We have a 2metre run to external mount site. Is that sufficient?
Please contact our Technical Team on 1300 762 219 to confirm if the 2 meters is sufficient.
Hi, we have the SL906EXCEL850 range hood, which we installed in Aug 2015 and after reading all these lovely reviews I have to say we are nothing but disappointed with our purchase. It doesn't seem to extract a great deal and is very noisy. Have even been considering looking at an alternative. Would appreciate some advice. Regards Lisa
if the range hood is noisy and has poor extraction. have a look at where and how the ducting has been installed ( bear in mind less bends the better). does the ducting have an exit point? avoid using flexible foil ducting, they vibrate causing it to be noisy
what size/typeof ducting is needed with Sirius units? Our builder says he can't fit the Quasair ducting in our ceiling space (there is a second floor above the kitchen) so we are back in the market looking for a different exhaust system for the kitchen. We have a 900 mm combined ASKO induction/wok burner cooktop, does the serial numberon the Sirius indicate the width? We may need to redesign the kitchen cabinetry to accommodate a different size.
Hi, I can't seem to find where to buy the SL906 EML 850 either in store in Perth or online. I can easily find the SL906 L 850 though. Any ideas where to look? Thanks
Hi Jarryd. Please visit our store locator: http://siriusbrand.com/store-locator/ a store near you is bound to have one in stock. You could also purchase one online. Kind Regards - Sirius Team
Hi Sirius Official team,
I am currently trying to decide between the Sirius SL906-L EXCEL 850 (onboard motor) and SL906 EM-L 850 (offboard motor) to be mounted above a 90cm induction cooktop.
I am having difficulty choosing between the two as there are no showrooms in Tasmania where I can see (hear) either unit operating. Sirius official, can you please advise which would be a better option for my kitchen/house set-up, I have a flat roof that is at most 3m above the cooktop - is this too short a distance for the offboard option?
Thanks in advance!
Dear Dizzy renovator, we have showrooms at Harvey Norman Cambridge park they have an undermount off board and then you can also try Elite Appliances. Three metres to the off board motor is ideal so you can manage both configurations. Thank you Sirius Brand.
Thanks Sirius Official. Unfortunately neither Harvey Norman nor Elite Appliances in TAS have fully installed units to listen to.
Can you tell me your RRP for both the SL906-L EXCEL 850 and the SL906 EM-L 850?
What is the difference between SL906-L EXCEL 850 and SL906 EM-L 850?
I don't know Rose. Perhaps you should ask the manufacturer or supplier.
Hi thanks for your question the details are as follows. The Model Number: SL906-L EXCEL 850 has a twin motor in the unit, while the Model Number: SL906 EML 850 has an offboard motor the motor is not in the rangehood but separate and you can choose Motors: SEM 1,2 or 5, for your house. Thank you Sirius brand. see further information online -http://siriusbrand.com
