Zephyr Expands Collection of Black Stainless Steel Hoods
Breeze II and Cyclone Under-Cabinet Ventilation Hoods Offer Sleek Alternative To Stainless Steel
SAN FRANCISCO, September 13th, 2017 — Zephyr, the industry leader in ventilation hood design, innovation and technology, is expanding its collection of Black Stainless Steel hoods with the introduction of the Breeze II and Cyclone Under-Cabinet. The industry’s first under-cabinet Black Stainless Steel hoods feature a sleek timeless design, powerful performance, and anti-smudge coating for easy cleaning.
The hoods are designed with laminated black stainless, which is achieved by fusing a black laminated material onto stainless steel sheets. This gives designers and homeowners a bold alternative to traditional under-cabinet hoods at an affordable price. Breeze II and Cyclone are part of Zephyr’s Essentials Collection, and an extension of the popular black stainless steel wall models, which also include the Anzio, Ravenna, and Savona.
“We had such a great response to the black stainless steel wall models that it was a natural step for us to introduce under-cabinet hoods in this sleek new material,” says Luke Siow, Zephyr President. “Designers and consumers want options when it comes to styles, colors, and features; we’re proud to offer a ventilation solution for every kitchen.”
The Breeze II is available in 30- and 36-inches and features Zephyr’s new BriteStrip™ LED lighting. The energy-efficient BriteStrip™ outputs an even 3,000K (Kelvin temperature scale) warm white color to ensure the cooking surface is properly illuminated. The Cyclone, also available in 30- and 36-inches, has the optional Bloom™ GU10 LED lights that are the only dimmable GU10 LEDs using standard 120V AC power approved for use in a range hood. The energy efficient, 6-watt LEDs last up to 20,000 hours, which equate to approximately 30 years, and provide near-halogen light warmth.
Since 1997, San Francisco-based Zephyr has continued to bring design, innovation and technology to the forefront of the kitchen ventilation hood industry. The company has challenged the perception of what ventilation means in kitchen design and created a new awareness of the importance of a high performing ventilation system. With acclaimed talent such as artistic visionary, Fu-Tung Cheng, and industrial designer, Robert Brunner, Zephyr is able to create cutting-edge residential range hoods unlike any other company. In addition, Zephyr has pioneered ventilation hood technology with the industry’s first DCBL Suppression System®; an exclusive innovation that delivers the most silent, energy efficient and performance-driven range hoods available today. As a direct result of its commitment to elevating range hood design and technology, Zephyr is the recipient of several prestigious awards including Consumer Report Buy Rating, Consumer Digest Best Buy Rating, Chicago Athenaeum Good Design, ADEX (Awards for Design Excellence), Appliance Design ‘Excellence In Design’, Spark Award and the Architectural Products ‘Product Innovation Award.’ To learn more, visit zephyronline.com.
