    DURA-BENCH Plastic Greenhouse Bench Tops

    DURA-BENCH Plastic Greenhouse Bench Top is a smoother and longer lasting growing surface for your plants. Designed to replace traditional wood, wire, and expanded metal bench top, DURA-BENCH panels are made from durable, non-porous polypropylene plastic. The DURA-BENCH Plastic Greenhouse Bench Top eliminates problems like corrosion, rust, and sharp edges typically seen from expanded metal or wire tops. The panels will not crack, rot, or splinter like traditional wood products. In addition, the smooth panel allows trays, flats, and pots to slide across the surface with ease. DURA-BENCH Plastic Greenhouse Bench Top products are available in many different sizes and styles to fit your specific need.
