Dura-Bench Original assembly overview

Dura-Bench Original specifications and packaging charts

Most greenhouse bench manufacturers and those in current use have outside dimensions, for example, of 2, 4, 5, 6 ft and have raised edges such as welded wire and expanded metal are sized smaller to fit inside the bench. THE DURA BENCH PRODUCTS ARE EXACTLY 2 FT X 4 FT SECTIONS. We offer ready made benches designed for the Dura Bench, meaning that the bench holds the 2 x 4 ft insert and is slightly larger to accommodate the product.
