The Zip Trench™ trench drain system owes its impermeability to its polypropylene composition. Polypropylene, known for its excellent chemical resistance, allows the trench drain to withstand aggressive chemicals without degrading — making it a preferred option for industrial sites where chemical spills are a common concern.

This material not only provides better chemical resistance compared to alternatives like cast iron but also contributes to the trench drain’s overall durability, ensuring that it remains effective in a variety of applications, from police stations to pedestrian walkways

High Storage Capacity

The high storage capacity of the Zip Trench™ trench drain is a direct result of its design, which optimizes for high flow volume. This feature is particularly beneficial in areas prone to heavy rainfall or significant water runoff, as it can accommodate larger amounts of water, reducing the risk of overflow.

The trench drain system’s ability to handle high flow volumes makes it an ideal solution for industrial driveway entrances and other areas where water accumulation can pose significant challenges. Additionally, the Zip Trench™ ‘s design considerations for load class and its extra heavy-duty grate option ensure that it can withstand the demands of heavy traffic, making it suitable for a wide range of settings that require efficient water management.

Easy to Install

Easy to Install

Ease of installation is another hallmark of the Zip Trench™ trench drain, attributed to its pre-assembled runs and lighter-weight system. These features make it a labor-saving alternative to traditional trench drains, reducing the time and effort required for installation. The lightweight nature of polypropylene, in comparison to heavier materials like polymer concrete or cast iron, facilitates quicker and more efficient installation processes. 

This not only speeds up project timelines but also reduces the overall labor costs associated with installing trench drain systems. As a result, the Zip Trench™ drain system is particularly advantageous for projects where quick turnaround times are critical, such as in commercial renovations or new construction at industrial sites.


Cost-effectiveness is a significant advantage of the Zip Trench™ over other trench drain options. The initial investment in a polypropylene trench drain system may be more economical when compared to options like polymer concrete or cast iron due to the inherent material and manufacturing efficiencies. Additionally, the durability and better chemical resistance of polypropylene reduce the need for frequent replacements or repairs, thereby saving money today and in the long term.

Further, being a more lightweight system not only cuts down on installation costs but also translates to lower shipping fees, further enhancing the overall cost-effectiveness of the Zip Trench system for a wide array of applications, from industrial plants to commercial settings and public infrastructure projects.
