SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - June 10, 2014) - Zephyr, the leader in ventilation hood design, innovation and technology, today announced the launch of the Pisa under-cabinet and Tornado Mini power pack kitchen ventilation hoods. Ideal for the builder or consumer looking for versatile and cost effective hoods, the Pisa and Tornado Mini combine minimalist design with quality performance.
The Pisa is a contemporary alternative to the standard and outdated, under-cabinet range hoods that lack design and performance. With a quick pull of the sleek glass visor, the user can automatically turn on the hood's 290 CFM motor and dual level halogen lights. Its slim, rectangular body tucks discreetly under the cabinetry; a perfect fit for modern or traditional kitchen styles. Available in 30-inches, the Pisa quietly vents the air at 1.3 - 3.2 sones and includes an aluminum mesh filter for easy cleaning. The Pisa also features an optional recirculating kit and has a mounting height of 24- to 32-inches.
With its small footprint, ultra-quiet blower and recirculating options for ductless installations, the Tornado Mini power pack is ideal for smaller, custom applications. The Tornado Mini can fit into a standard 12-inch depth cabinet and an optional adjustable-depth stainless steel liner is available to accommodate larger custom hood enclosures. Features include dual level halogen lights, Mechanical Slide controls, three speed levels and an aluminum mesh filter. The Tornado Mini is available in a 20-inch width, which is the smallest power pack in the collection and a testament to Zephyr truly having an option for every kitchen hood installation.
"At Zephyr, we understand every kitchen is different and therefore, we need to provide options for consumers and builders that will make their jobs easier," says Luke Show, Zephyr president. "Even though the hood may not be visible in a canopy installation or hidden beneath cabinetry, the product should still make an impact with its sleek design or quiet performance; our new Pisa and Tornado Mini do just that."
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' and the Architectural Products 'Product Innovation Award.'
