Zephyr Launches New Verona Island Kitchen Ventilation Hood

Article Zephyr Launches Verona Island Kitchen Ventilation Hood; Modern Design Meets Green Technology
SAN FRANCISCO⎯Zephyr, the industry leader in ventilation hood design, innovation and technology, today announced the launch of its Verona Island kitchen range hood with the groundbreaking new DCBL Suppression System™. The Verona Island is part of Zephyr’s Europa Collection and offers the quietest, most powerful and energy efficient technology on the market today.
A perfect blend of modern simplicity and timeless design, the Verona Island makes a bold statement over the cooktop with its straight glass canopy and LED light display. The user can select Cloud White, Deep Blue and Amber color settings to best match the kitchen décor; or a demo mode shows all three color options in 10 second intervals.
With its technological breakthroughs, the Verona Island is equipped with the industry-first DCBL Suppression technology that combines a Direct Current (DC) motor and on-board computer, which reduces the hood’s noise by 77 percent. This whisper-quiet performance keeps the focus on the conversation at the dinner table instead of a loud humming noise.
In addition to more power and less noise, the Verona Island’s smart technology has reduced energy consumption by almost 80 percent. Zephyr has exceeded Energy Star™ standards by offering 17 CFM per watt compared to Energy Star's current standard of 2.8 CFM per watt.
The Verona Island is constructed of stainless steel and glass and is available in 36- and 42-inches with 250 - 715 internal minimum-maximum blower CFM. The hood’s Bloom™ HD LED light bulbs were designed in partnership with commercial camera lens designers and have a life cycle of 25,000 hours. They are the only range hood LED light bulbs on the market that are dimmable with near-halogen light warmth, yet remain cool to the touch regardless of how long they are in use.
“The Verona Island completes our Europa Collection, which includes a combination of wall, island and under cabinet styles. The breadth of product designs combined with first-to-market technology are synonymous with our commitment to challenging the perception of what ventilation means in kitchen design,” says Luke Siow, Zephyr president. “The Verona Island features a perfect combination of architecture and performance. It maintains the classic design that we’re known for, but is elevated to a new level with our DCBL technology.”
