Greenhouse Benching

Height 853mm, Depth 887mm or 734mm, Custom Length

£800 per linear metre*

Designed to maintain the traditional feel of the greenhouse, this solid benching combines strength and flexibility with elegant looks.

We can maximise your benching options according to your greenhouse design. Our benches have been ergonomically designed to be no deeper than an average arm length, and to be an average waist height.

The attractive framework is manufactured using heavy cast aluminium legs and extruded aluminium sides which are powder coated in the same or a contrasting colour as your greenhouse.


The deep sides allow the bench to be filled with Hydroleca; a moisture-retaining material which we provide to aid with moisture retention, drainage through the bench, as well as a stable surface to place pots.

To fully utilise the space within the glasshouse, we have manufactured a strong and durable lower shelf to fit beneath the bench. A moulded aluminium extrusion supports the shelf, which is nominally 350 mm above finished floor level and 315mm wide and is finished with slats made from sustainable bamboo and recycled plastic, offering additional storage. The shelf is fitted to the maximum area possible although its size is ultimately governed by the configuration of the bench.

Materials

The framework of the bench is manufactured in aluminium, and polyester powder coated to either match or contrast with your greenhouse. The bench itself is made up of 2 levels, the top level has a galvanised corrugated sheet base, while the lower shelf is comprised of slats made from sustainable bamboo and recycled plastic, sitting within the aluminium framework.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Hydroleca?
Hydroleca is produced by exposing tiny clay granules to extreme high temperatures. They are lightweight, hard ceramic pebbles that have a smooth exterior and a honeycomb core. Their cellular structure also has outstanding properties which help safeguard plants from extreme variances in temperature. Hydroleca pebbles are used to absorb water and then slowly release it. We provide it on our benching to aid with moisture retention, drainage through the bench, as well as a stable surface to place pots.

Do I have to have Hydroleca?
We provide Hydroleca on our benching to aid with moisture retention and drainage through the bench, as well as a stable surface to place pots, however you may prefer to source an alternative yourself. This might be shingle, sand or decorative stone.

Does my benching colour have to match my greenhouse colour?
No, this can be decided with your Sales Designer or Project Manager. Although matching benching looks very smart, a contrasting colour can look striking. Black benching in an off white greenhouse looks great!

What should my benching layout be?
This can be decided with your Sales Designer or Project Manager based on your greenhouse shape and size, as well as considering how you want to use your greenhouse and what you want to grow.

Will water drip through my benching?
Yes, and it is designed to purposefully, as this means there will not be a build-up of stagnant water beneath your Hydroleca.

Where can I store larger items?
The slats are removable to allow flexibility in your under-bench storage. While they provide ample space for tools, seed trays and bags of soil, you may wish to remove a couple to allow room for taller pots or materials.
