Lux Island was created for homeowners that want an unobtrusive view of the kitchen and features an integrated design that discreetly mounts into the ceiling above the island cooktop. Lux Island is for open kitchen layouts and homeowners that entertain around built-in islands, yet do not want a traditional “island” hood. The “out of sight, out of mind” Lux won’t block sightlines in the kitchen, nor does it compromise on power or performance.
Lux is equipped with Perimeter Aspiration, a technique that moves airflow away from the central area of the hood and evenly distributes it through narrow openings around the perimeter. This ventilation method increases air velocity and improves the capture of cooking contaminates. Perimeter Aspiration ensures the hood will keep the kitchen free of smoke and debris and can handle powerful cooking jobs over European- or professional-style ranges.
Lux features a Wireless Remote Control that lets the user easily control the hood’s functions with a push of a button. Given the hood’s integrated design, this is a convenient feature that controls the 3-speed levels, and tri-level lighting. In addition, Lux features LED light strips (3, tri-level) that are not available on similar products. The capacitive touch remote control and our ability to offer multiple blower options is also a competitive advantage and not found on other range hoods. Zephyr also offers a Dual Internal Blower (1,100 CFM) and Clean Air function that is exclusive to Zephyr.
While design remains a top priority for consumers, it is also important that appliances include features that increase functionality and the overall user experience. The Lux Island includes a Clean Air Function that turns your hood on once every four hours for 10 minutes on speed one. This allows the hood to continuously recirculate the air throughout the day to ensure the kitchen air is clean and fresh.
