Zephyr Introduces First Black Stainless Steel Island Hood

Ravenna Island Features Delicate Curves, Innovative Technology, and Powerful Performance

SAN FRANCISCO, April, 2018 – Zephyr, the company that has transformed the kitchen through design, discovery and care, introduces its first Black Stainless Steel island hood. Ravenna Island combines a sleek aesthetic with innovative features and technology, and a smoke-gray glass canopy that delicately curves over the island cooktop. Zephyr now has the most diverse Black Stainless Steel hood offering on the market with a selection of wall, under-cabinet, and island hoods.

Ravenna Island is designed with an anti-smudge titanium coating for extra durability and easy cleaning.  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.

“We’re excited to add Ravenna Island in Black Stainless Steel to our Core Collection of hoods that add an elegance to everyday cooking,” says Sarah Wahl, Zephyr director of marketing. “In addition to its good looks and performance-driven technology, Ravenna Island is loaded with features that set this hood apart from the competition.”

Ravenna Island’s energy-efficient BriteStrip™ LED light outputs an even 3,000K (Kelvin temperature scale) warm white color to ensure the cooking surface is properly illuminated. ICON Touch® Controls seamlessly integrate into the hood’s canopy and controls the hood’s powerful, yet quiet 600 CFM blower. Ravenna Island also includes Zephyr’s Airflow Control Technology™ (ACT™);  an exclusive technology that gives the installer freedom to set the maximum CFM to accommodate local make-up air codes without compromising design. Additional features include an Optional Recirculating Kit, Optional Duct Cover Extension Kit, Optional Make-Up Air Kit, and Aluminum Mesh Filters.

Zephyr’s additional Black Stainless Steel products include Anzio, Ravenna and Savona wall hoods, and Breeze II and Cyclone under-cabinet hoods. For more information visit zephyronline.com.
