Ebb & Flow Bench Systems
An ebb & flow bench includes plastic “ebb-flow” trays that rest on top of the bench. The original purpose of an ebb flow bench was for irrigating purposes. Water would flow through the tray and irrigate the plants. That is still a purpose, but another purpose is to simply catch water from other forms of irrigation and drain it off rather than going on the floor.
Our Ebb and Flow rolling benches are designed with the grower in mind. With available width options of 4′, 4.5′, 5′, 5.5′ and 6′, we can maximize the efficiency of your growing space. Benches are designed to accommodate our molded polystyrene Ebb and Flow trays. Welded bench frames are built from 1″ square galvanized steel tubing. Cross support ribs are spaced every 18″ to support even the heaviest crops. Threaded height adjustment allows approximately 4″ of leveling. Extruded aluminum side-rails are designed to accept optional trellis support arms. Trellis arms are a great option for providing additional canopy support for your crop.
We manufacture additional bench designs that include expanded metal and wire mesh bench decking. On expanded metal or wire benches, plants simply sit on the bench and any water or soil would fall through to the ground. We offer rolling, palletized and stationary benches in both expanded metal and ebb & flow.
