For those times where you have to race to the finish, the Jay R. Smith Mfg. Co.® Zip Trench™ is the answer. Go zero to 60 in six sections with three-meter (10 ft.) channels that have easy to connect male/female lap joints. Speed is matched with durability from a one-piece galvanized or stainless steel frame that transfers weight to the surrounding concrete and a selection of heavy-duty and extra heavy-duty grates.
