Pine Grove, PA, April 01, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Solar Innovations®, a custom manufacturer of residential and commercial greenhouses, conservatories, sunrooms, folding glass walls, and more; offers custom designed and manufactured greenhouse potting benches for everyone from the home gardener to the professional horticulturalist.
Solar Innovations® released a new potting bench design which allows customers to more effectively use space in their greenhouses for potting, transplanting, and seeding new plants. These benches have been designed to be versatile and work well in a greenhouse, potting shed, basement, garage, or virtually any space where plants may be cared for.
The framework is manufactured from sturdy aluminum which will not warp, rot, or rust. It can easily withstand the moist environment required for greenhouse growing and is capable of supporting heavy bags of potting soil and large plants. Customizable bench tops can be constructed from several materials including a recycled black polyethylene grid, metal mesh, solid polycarbonate, or Mahogany wood. Solar Innovations, Inc. recommends that customers make their bench top and shelf selection based on expected use (transplanting water, etc.), where it will be located (indoor, outdoor, porch), and the desired visual appearance. For added convenience, Solar’s newly designed potting benches have additional counter space to provide an area for repotting and watering. Potting soil bins can also be added to the bench top to reduce bending and back strain. Solar Innovations, Inc. can integrate a sink at the desired location along the bench top. Under bench area can also be installed with as many shelves as space permits. These shelves can be custom designed allowing them to be as big or small as the customer needs for storage.
Like Solar’s, most potting benches on the market today include a bench top, storage below, and sink; but, Solar Innovations, Inc.’s new potting bench offers these standards and so much more. Space for electrical outlets can be designed into the bench for tools, radios, and grow lights. Hanging space for tools is another desirable feature of a potting bench, as it greatly increases gardening productivity. Another exciting feature is accessible, rolling, under bench top shelves. These units allow for deeper storage and easy access to stored items.
If your space allows, shelving can be added above the bench top, minimizing time spent looking for tools, pots, and other gardening items; they are all in one convenient location. Multiple tiers of shelves are added to create the most growing space possible. Top shelves can be used for new seedlings to receive sunlight and increase their growth. A backsplash for the shelves can be added to prevent water and dirt from “messing” the greenhouse walls. If this is not a concern, the shelving can be open to the back, allowing additional airflow. Each of the shelves can be constructed of polyethylene, metal, or wood to match the existing bench top. These features make gardening easier than it ever has been before.
As with all of Solar’s products, each potting bench is custom designed to your exact size and layout requirements; there are no standard dimensions you must maintain. Solar Innovations, Inc.’s corporate headquarters in Pine Grove, Pennsylvania has a floor model greenhouse which includes the newly designed potting bench. Visitors can use this model to explore the world of horticulture during their visits.
