Zwart Systems' Multi-Level Benching is unique to the greenhouse industry. We manufacture custom benching systems designed to match your space.
Zwart Systems is constantly looking at the grower industry from all angles. Now we are looking at it from all levels!
Multi-level benches and indoor farming have come a long way. The evolution of LED lighting has opened up opportunities to grow on multiple levels.
Zwart Systems was involved with early multi-level growing projects in the lettuce farming sector, and now we are working to implement this technology with growers of herbs, cannabis, plug production and other microgreens.
The evolution continues. Where multi-level growing started using static two-level benches, the door has been opened to racks that glide across the floor with as many as three levels. These gliding racks allow for wide path access to maintain crops from lifts and capitalize on efficient use of space when vertical farming.
Multi-Level Benching Overview
Zwart Systems multi-level benching is unique to the industry. We manufacture one solid poly-styrene tray from the front to the back of the rack. This allows for easier cleaning, simple irrigation adaptation, greater rigidity, and higher yields.
Provide Zwart Systems with a CAD drawing of your growing area and we will illustrate a system that fits perfectly in the space!
- Process & Materials
Parts for this system are laser cut, producing clean and precise cuts that are easy to assemble.
The entire multi-level bench structure is made from pre-galvanized materials.
The bench deck is manufactured using the same parts and pieces as all our other tables systems.
Each tabletop is finished with an aluminum side profile and rounded HDPE corners.
Multi-level benches move smoothly from position to position by manually pushing the rack.

The multi-level benching has allowed the team to utilize limited space and maximize the potential of the vegetative plant growth cycle. Not only the benching, but the success of implementing multiple irrigation methods on the benching has allowed us to do more with less while focusing on what matters most: plant health. This wouldn’t have been possible if we didn’t have a multi-level benching system with our project/building limitations. The team at Zwart didn’t simply supply us equipment and walk away, but helped us understand how to be successful with vertical growing.
