Save up to 35% on HVAC Duct and Installation

ZEN Industries Brings New Coil Line into Operation

HVAC Duct Coil LineZEN Industries saves new construction projects up to 35% on HVAC duct acquisition and installation, compared to traditional approaches. We call our method The ZEN Way.

How does ZEN consistently save architects, owners, and project managers so much while also helping their projects run smoothly and less expensively?

It’s simple, 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.

HVAC Coil Line, ZEN IndustriesConsider these three factors:

  • Eliminate Field Measuring and Sketching Labor (FMSL) by utilizing ZEN’s 3D Coordination Drawing and Shop Drawing capabilities. Save on experienced labor that otherwise would cost $40 to $60/hour.
  • Save on Installation Labor. ZEN delivers duct and fittings so precisely measured, numbered, and labeled that your least expensive labor can get the shakeout done. Save up to half on installation labor.
  • Save on Duct Fabrication. ZEN’s fabrication facilities are state-of-the-art, with advanced workflow processes and new coil lines, plasma tables, and an experienced ductwork team, we can produce duct for any need, on time and at a budget that saves you money.

More Than a Duct Fabricator

Finding an experienced fabricator of HVAC duct is not hard. Finding a project partner able to optimize the workflow for HVAC duct installation from estimating through delivery is a rare prize.

At ZEN, we can 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.

Benefit from 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).

As an experienced fabricator of HVAC duct for over 22 years, ZEN Industries supplies traditional Rectangular Ductwork as well as Spiral Ductwork, Double Wall Spiral, , PCD Ductwork, and Specialty Ductwork.
