Zephyr Introduces Spruce Outdoor Insert Ventilation Hood

From Wall to Island Applications, Zephyr’s Spruce Completes the Ultimate Outdoor Kitchen

SAN FRANCISCO, May 24, 2018 – Zephyr, the company that has transformed the kitchen through design, discovery, and care, introduces its newest outdoor vent hood – Spruce Outdoor Insert.

Spruce can be installed in wall or island applications, includes 304-grade corrosion-resistant stainless steel, and powerful blowers to handle the most intense outdoor grilling.

According to the AIA (American Institute of Architects), there is an increase in demand for outdoor kitchens, which add value to the home and create a more functional space. The outdoor grill vent hood is an integral player in the outdoor kitchen that protects furniture, countertops and siding from grease, smoke, and odors. If the outdoor grill is located under a combustible covered structure, a powerful range hood is necessary and often times building codes may require a hood be installed.

Spruce features three-speed metallic knob controls that withstand extreme heat and moisture, and professional baffle filters to enhance airflow. Four directional halogen lights fully illuminate the grilling surface for dinner after the sun goes down, and can be adjusted by the user to better direct the light.

Available in four sizes from 36- up to 60-inches, Spruce one-piece liner features powerful 1,200 CFM blowers and is the ultimate high-performance insert for custom outdoor enclosures.

“The backyard has really evolved over the years into a social hub and extension of the indoor kitchen,” says Luke Siow, Zephyr President. “Homeowners are investing in quality outdoor furniture, lighting, and appliances, and the outdoor ventilation hood is an integral part of the outdoor kitchen, just like it is inside the home.”
