One of the most important fittings within the glasshouse is the benching.   Sometimes it is called staging, tables or plant supports.  Its key is to ensure pots are easy to work on and are held in a position where they can get maximum light.

Staging takes many forms and growers have many different favourites!

Most frequently, Harrier GD recommends a framework of aluminium.  Heavy cast legs with deep extruded sides ensure that any number of growing surfaces can be fitted.   The bench is strong, easy to clean and has few areas that allow pests and diseases to harbour.

Variations on the bench can be:

Most installations demand a lower shelf which prevents storage on the ground, which invariably looks untidy and can be an area that can harbour rodents.

As part of restoration projects Harrier GD has undertaken, we have repaired original bench legs , rewelded staging supports and refitted timber sides.

On some occasions, we have been commissioned to create wonderful oak staging which can be stacked to provide different display levels

The majority of growers ask for corrugated iron support for the heavier pots topped with hydroleca – an expanded clay pellet which holds the pot firm and absorbs water.  However, some orchid growers favour open seed mesh trays.

The above examples, just illustrate that Harrier GD is able to accommodate most customers requirements for Benching and Shelves!
