XtremeAir island mount range hoods are crafted from 19 gauge stainless steel in satin finish; they also come equipped with dishwasher safe stainless steel baffle filters. The stainless steel used in the hoods construction is austenitic; this means that the steel is non-magnetic, which prevents the attraction of dust particles to its surface and as a result it prevents the buildup of gunk overtime. Another feature of the austenitic steel that is worth mentioning is its high rust resistance; this is a welcome characteristic especially since the range hoods are exposed to extremely moist conditions in kitchen environments.
The motor used in XtremeAir range hoods is ultra-quiet and capable of moving up to 900 cubic feet of air per minute. There are 4 preset blower speeds that are controlled by touch sensitive buttons; the current blower speed setting is displayed on the LCD panel. The noise levels produced by the blower range from 35 dB to 67 dB; this can be compared to a noise ranging from a quiet conversation (35 dB) to a normal conversation (60 - 65 dB).
