How long is a ZONO cycle?
A ZONO disinfecting and sanitizing cycle lasts only 30 minutes and items are immediately ready for use. Units utilizing the heat or drying addition cycles are separate from sanitizing cycles and will extend cycle time by 60 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?
ZONO’s 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 kill germs? 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 Sarina McCranie at email@example.com.
What is the cost and what are my buying options?
You can purchase your ZONO through a one-time payment or lease the machine at around $400(SC 1) or $450(SC 2) per month for 60 months. 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 is ordering this week to take delivery before the end of the year and reduce her tax bill for 2020. www.section179.org.
You can buy directly from any of ZONO’s distributors at www.zonotechnologies.com/contact/ or through a certified ZONO Technologist by inquiring through email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 770-212-9201.
What size models do you offer and what are the dimensions?
ZONO machines are upright like refrigerators. They easily fit into an eight-foot-high room. ZONO offers multiple model sizes. Our most popular models include:
ZONO SC 1 Single Door* (76 3/16” H x 26 ½” W x 31 3/16” D), the ZONO SC 2 Double Door* (76 3/16” H x 52 5/8” W x 31 1/16” D) and the ZONO SC 2 DD Double Door Double Deep** (80” H x 52 5/8” W x 58 9/16” D).

What comes with the ZONO?
The ZONO comes with a standard 3-year warranty. Optionally we can include carts that are appropriate for your items to be disinfected. They can be itemized separately or with the ZONO’s cost. As part of your marketing package, ZONO includes a 9”x12” Wall Sign for your machine, Parent Letters (child care), and a social media shout-out post.
Is delivery an additional cost?
Yes, delivery is an additional cost. We offer multiple delivery options to choose from.
How many ZONO’s 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’s design is the rolling carts that tier objects to be sanitized and stacked on shelves. You can sanitize a considerable volume in one 30-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 cannister that should be refilled with tap water as needed.
Will you ship ZONO’s 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.
