Any well-run sports program needs an effective, efficient way to disinfect and sanitize equipment—whether it’s bulky items like helmets and pads or high-touch electronics. Equipment managers understand that properly caring for gear, including a process to disinfect and sanitize, helps protect the health of athletes and personnel, acting as a strong defense against viruses and bacteria.
The ZONO Ozone Disinfecting and Sanitizing Cabinet is an essential component of a comprehensive disinfecting and sanitizing plan for sports teams of all levels. The ZONO takes care of it all, safely killing 99.99% of common viruses+ like Norovirus (disinfecting level) and 99.9% of common bacteria* like MRSA and E. Coli (sanitizing level), plus drastically reducing odors.
How does the ZONO work?
After a hard practice or game, sports equipment is often drenched with sweat. Even when it’s given time to dry, chances are, the gear is still damp the next time players put it on. Unfortunately, bacteria thrive in moist conditions. MRSA loves salt, and odors tend to build in a humid environment. All it takes is a single outbreak of MRSA, Staph, or Norovirus to decimate a team.
The ZONO disinfects and sanitizes gear by safely generating ozone in a controlled and safe environment, allowing multiple objects to simultaneously be disinfected and sanitized in a single 30-minute cycle. Once the cycle is complete, items are ready for immediate use. The ZONO is eco-friendly, with no emissions or waste, and plugs into a standard 120-volt outlet. As part of a comprehensive disinfecting and sanitizing regimen, the ZONO helps athletic programs meet their needs at any capacity, with single-door, double-door, or double-door double-deep machines.
What can be placed in the ZONO?
The ZONO makes it easy to disinfect and sanitize helmets, shoulder pads, footwear, braces, gloves, and electronics. It’s safe for plastics, metals, and vinyl, and it can permeate multiple layers of fabric.
When the ZONO cycle is complete, items are ready for use without wiping or rinsing. A drying cycle for wet gear adds convenience, ensuring athletes never have to practice in damp equipment.
Because many sports items are bulky, the ZONO’s Integrated Mobile Cart System makes loading and unloading as simple as possible. The Integrated Mobile Cart types include:
- A shoe and glove dryer with a capacity for 32 shoes or 32 gloves
- A bin cart for loose materials and smaller gear
- A utility cart able to hold up to 32 helmets
- A shoulder pad cart designed to hold 22 shoulder pads
- A helmet cart to hold 48 helmets
The flexibility of the Integrated Mobile Cart System means that the ZONO system works for all types of teams, covering everything from High School, Collegiate, and Pro Sports Teams to small and large athletic programs. And because the ZONO is made in the U.S., regulated by the EPA, and validated by independent testing, equipment managers have the peace-of-mind knowing they’re supporting their team’s health and wellbeing in a proven manner.
