Don’t be afraid of the dark… Industry-First Black Stainless Steel Hoods With Titanium Coating

Zephyr’s Black Stainless Steel hoods have a military-grade built-in layer of protection with an anti-smudge coating for easing cleaning. In addition, this material does not oxidize and resists fingerprints better than stainless steel, which for families with young kids (or messy cooks!) is an added bonus. Solid Titanium is transported on the stainless steel through a Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) process that makes it more uniform and durable than a traditional coating process. The PVD process is also an eco-friendly technology (in contrast to chemical and galvanic surface treatments) that is clean and dry with no hazardous materials involved, and does not generate chemical waste or water pollution.

While design remains at the forefront for the new Black Stainless Steel hoods, power and performance are equally important. The Anzio, Ravenna, and Savona all feature Zephyr’s new BriteStrip™ LED lighting and ICON Touch® Controls that seamlessly integrate into the hood’s canopy. Users can easily control the 5-speeds, delay-off function, auto reminders, and Airflow Control Technology (ACT™: an exclusive technology that gives builders and developers the freedom to install range hoods with maximum blower CFM, without having to compromise power or design).

The Black Stainless Steel option is available on the following models: Anzio Wall (30-, 36-inches with 600 CFM), Ravenna Wall with Smoke-Gray Glass (30-, 36-inches with 600 CFM), and Savona Wall (30-, 36-inches with 685 CFM). All models feature ACT™ (Airflow Control Technology), ICON Touch® Controls, BriteStrip™ LED Light, Extension Duct Cover and Recirculating options. MSRP: $1,099 – $1,299.
