Zwart Systems Glider Series benching will maximize your greenhouse growing space and can be designed as a multi-level system for the cannabis industry.
Glider Series Benching
Zwart Systems prides itself on being responsive to an ever-changing industry. Our new Glider Series of benching is a direct result of cannabis growers asking us for something a little different than what we already manufacture and sell.
The rolling bench is a standard table system and has been used in the greenhouse industry for decades. Very little has changed from its original concept. In fact, many of our first benches have been in operation through several generations of growers!
Our Glider Series Benching system is constructed using a reinforced galvanized steel framework and stands on a wheel and track system. Centre legs are fitted with solid smooth wheels, and end legs are fitted with special V-grooved wheels that ride over a floor-mounted aluminum inverted V-track.
Glider Series Overview
Glider Series Benching can be topped using Trough, Ebb and Flood or Expanded Metal, and can also be designed as a multi-level system for any industry. This is a new product that was designed for the cannabis industry.
History & Specifications
- Traditional Rolling Benches
With traditional rolling benches, the table legs are fixed to the floor and the top rolls side to side to expose a walkway. Using the rolling bench structure, tabletop movement is restricted to 1/3 of the table width. This works very well with 72" (or wider) tables, but many indoor farming projects prefer a 48" or 60” table width.
In order to achieve a minimum path width of 24" while also maximizing growing area, a traditional rolling bench system will create wasted production space when using a 48" or 60" table.
- Glider Bench Series
Glider Bench lengths are customizable from 8ft up to 45ft, and glide smoothly side-to-side to expose a 24" walkway. Rooms can be designed with a wider walk to meet specific building code requirements. No more wasted space!
