From Shop Drawings to Kitting and Carting

Your Full-Service Ductwork Partner

Ductwork Kitting for DeliveryZEN Industries supplies a wide range of HVAC duct to commercial construction projects, nationwide. Why do architects, owners, and project managers consistently choose ZEN to make their projects run smoothly and less expensively?

It’s because we do more than fabricate high quality duct. We look at the big picture and deliver a set of coordinated services that make your acquisition and installation of duct as affordable and trouble free as possible. We call it The ZEN Way.

Two factors we don’t often talk about are kitting and carting.

Kitting is the art of delivering duct in a way that’s organized to your specific project and sure to save you time and trouble. For example, when delivering a duct order for the construction of an assisted living facility, there may be several suites being built. ZEN palletizes the duct and fittings according to which materials are to be installed in which suite. On-site confusion and sorting time is virtually eliminated.

Carting refers to our ability to deliver customized material handling cart solutions. On-site, our deliveries of duct are going to have to be hoisted to upper floors, moved by elevator, or maneuvered through tight spaces to reach the installation site. Our material handling carts make it easy.

Labeled duct for deliveryAt ZEN Industries, we work with customers to provide specialized carting solutions engineered to meet your job site requirements.

We have a long history of custom industrial fabrication that provides for any carting need, and our fabrication expertise extends to heavy duty industrial ductwork, as well as custom roof curbs and welded ductwork. (Industrial fabrication is handled by our American Mine Door division, which recently launched a new website.)

Regardless of what we’re delivering to your job site, it is delivered with exceptional planning and cost savings considerations. Our organizational services include delivery labeling so that your duct order becomes less like a box of blank puzzle pieces and more like an intuitive Lego set, ready to go.

A Comprehensive Menu of Services

ZEN is ready to assist your project from the very start. Our ZEN M.E.P. division is comprised of a team of experienced, high-tech draftsman able to take you from design, to fabrication, and installation more efficiently than ever before.

We start with duct drawings, developed with error reduction and cost-effectiveness in mind.

  • Improved efficiency and turnaround in shop drawings (up to 50% faster).
  • Improved accuracy, making drafting errors a thing of the past.
  • Improved precision, meeting SMACNA standards with ease.
  • Improved overall project profitability for our clients (real cost savings measured in dollars).

Palleted Duct MaterialsZEN can help you with HVAC estimating too. When doing traditional takeoffs, the estimating process is often duplicated at least once and often twice, with the duplication costing significant dollars while adding opportunities for error introduction.

Why pay more to introduce errors?

We can help you eliminate extra estimating steps, save money, and improve accuracy. We even work with select contractors to create a hand-in-glove relationship, integrating ZEN’s HVAC fabrication pricing with their own computer estimating software. In one step, the mechanical contractor can generate a reliable quote as well as work with data which can be fed seamless into production, direct to Zen Industries’ coil lines and plasma tables or a fabrication facility of your own.
