Custom Mechanical Centers

Custom-designed and crafted by specialists from concept to cooling, every Zero Zone Mechanical Center is manufactured from the ground up to provide a weatherproof, structurally sound enclosure for your custom refrigeration system. Our Custom Centers can incorporate refrigeration racks, electrical distribution, stand-by generators, hot-water reclaim systems or whatever our customer needs may require. Skilled engineers design, size and oversee every stage of the manufacturing process. Thorough testing and final inspection of all systems are your assurance of reduced maintenance and “fail-safe” performance. Our Centers are ready to install and easy to service for less downtime. Eight to ten weeks lead time required from receipt of purchase order.
