Dependable Error Reduction

thing, but at ZEN we consider
our draftsmen accomplished at their art.
"We take the blueprints," explained draftsman Stephen Dantone, "and section out
the work, detailing what kind of fitting it is, the joint, the gauge- everything

Direct to Coil Line and Plasma Tables
After duct drawings come back, a second drawing pass provides an exact
AutoCAD visualization- different spools, an isometric view of duct elements
going up and coming down, complete with duct numbers and tags that label length
and diameter. Drafting figures can be sent instantly to fabrication and
estimating, even transmitting digital information directly to ZEN's coil line and
Vulcan plasma tables.
The Last Word in Duct Drawings
EastCoast's CAD/CAM software delivers
accurate detailing and reporting along with a clear visualization of how the
final ductwork will be installed. This ensures HVAC implementation is correct,
down to the finest details of the design.
