Zip-Trench™ Now Available in 6” Size

MONTGOMERY, AL—July 9, 2017—Jay R. Smith Mfg. Co.® has added a 6” wide option to the Zip-Trench™ product line.

The 6” Zip-Trench™ is a polypropylene trench drain that is suitable for a wide variety of surface drainage applications. It comes with a choice of painted steel, galvanized steel, or stainless steel frame, which is directly supported by the surrounding concrete when installed, offering added stability. Each rail has alignment clips that keeps your trench drain installation straighter.


The product offers a less expensive, labor saving alternative to cast-in-place trench drains. The pre-assembled, 9’ 10” length of the channels and built-in rebar anchors make installation fast and simple. The polypropylene material is lightweight, recyclable, break-resistant and offers better chemical resistance than polyethylene. It can handle temperatures of 180 degrees.

A variety of grate choices are available for the 6” Zip-Trench™, including Class A, B, C and E load rating options.

The 6” Zip-Trench™ is the second product in the Zip-Trench™ product family, joining the 12” wide Zip-Trench™ released in 2017.
