How long is a ZONO™ cycle?
A ZONO™ disinfecting and sanitizing cycle lasts only 38 minutes and items are immediately ready for use. The heat cycle takes 90 minutes. The drying cycle takes up to 90 minutes.
Does the ZONO™ remove dirt or soil from items?
No, it does not. The ZONO™ does not clean, it simply disinfects and sanitizes with ozone. We recommend you continue to wash soiled items before placing them in the ZONO™.
How long will it take to receive my machine after I purchase?
The ZONO™ Ozone Disinfecting and Sanitizing Cabinets are American made and manufactured in Detroit. Lead times can vary depending on the backlog at the facility. On average, lead times are 3-4 weeks plus delivery time, but subject to change due to uncertainties of Covid-19.
How does ZONO™ disinfect and sanitize?
The ZONO™ uses ozone to disinfect and sanitize by converting the oxygen in the cabinet to ozone. Ozone is just oxygen with an extra molecule. Ozone is commonly used to purify drinking water and it eradicates germs on food processing equipment.
How do I know which ZONO™ is right for me?
ZONO™ Technologies customizes a product quotation based upon your requirements. Ask yourself: How much cargo do I have? How often do I need to sanitize and disinfect? What sizes are my items that need sanitizing? There are numerous options and accessories that optimize the ZONO™ for you. When considering your options, it is important to plan for expansion so your ZONO™ can support your growth. Obtain a quotation from one of our experts by contacting Brianna Lien at briannalien@zonotechnologies.
What is the cost and what are my buying options?
You can purchase your ZONO™through a one-time payment or finance with one of our top ZONO™ Solution lending partners for as little $455 for our (SC 1 Cabinet) or $515 for our (SC 2 Cabinet) per month for 60 months, $0 down, and no payments for the first 90 days. We have several clients buying with CARES Act funding. Taxable customers should consider the benefits of IRS Section 179, which can offset a considerable amount of taxes the year the machine is placed in service. For example: Amy in Virginia ordered a ZONO™ to take delivery before the end of the year and reduced her tax bill for the year. www.section179.org. You can buy directly from one of our nationwide ZONO™ distributors at www.zonotechnologies.com/contact/ or through a certified ZONO™ Technologist by inquiring through email at email@example.com or phone at 770-212-9201.
What size models do you offer and what are the dimensions?

How many ZONO™ Cabinets do I need to buy and which model should I buy?
You should buy the ZONO™ model and quantity that best fits the needs of your facility. To get the most out of your ZONO™, we recommend that child care centers of 90 students or more consider the SC 2 model. For sports and fitness, considering the SC 2 DD will allow you to maximize the space in your ZONO™ and sanitize large quantities of equipment. One benefit of the ZONO™ design is the rolling carts that tier objects to be sanitized and stacked on shelves. You can sanitize a considerable volume in one 38-minute cycle while you prepare to roll in another item-filled cart. Dispersing several carts at various locations throughout your business can help you queue items in need of sanitization, quickly and roll sanitized items right back. Purchase a machine and optimize its utilization with carts that keep it busy.
Does the ZONO™ require a water hookup or ventilation?
No water hookups or additional venting are required. The ZONO™ receives water through a removable water tray that should be refilled with distilled water as needed.
Will you ship ZONO™ Ozone Disinfecting and Sanitizing Cabinets outside of the U.S?
Yes, we are currently shipping orders to Canada. However, ZONO™ does not have Canadian Standards Association (CSA) approval. Check to determine if CSA is required for your application. Our post-sales service network does not cover Canada, though we can suggest remedies via phone very often since the digital screen reveals most issues that need mitigation. Currency for payments are always US dollars. Contact us for quotations and freight costs to pass border transit.
