The Zone One Modulating Control Damper

Zone One is a control damper assembly designed to solve over-heating and over-cooling problems. It can be used to control a single room, or by using multiple dampers to zone multiple rooms. Zone One is available as two-position or modulating and with a damper or diffuser.

Commercial Zone Control Systems

The SC-Z20 is a commercial zone control system that allows a single HVAC unit to have up to 20 individual zones. Each zone is controlled by its own space thermostat and a modulating zone damper or diffuser. The SC-Z20 works with single-stage, multi-stage, or heat pump systems and has an auxiliary heat control option for each zone. The SC-Z20 is an affordable alternative to higher cost VAV systems and there is no programming required.
