The new DURA-BENCH ULTRA plastic bench top is engineered to replace wood, wire, and expanded metal on greenhouse benches. The 2’x4’ non-porous, polypropylene plastic panel is designed with 1.1” x 2.1” rectangular holes for easy cleaning, and is engineered to interconnect with other DURA-BENCH ULTRA panels with nylon clips (sold separately) to create a smooth, flat bench surface.
The DURA-BENCH ULTRA is durable, smooth, non-porous, and allows trays, flats, and pots to slide across the surface without snagging. The panels will not rot, crack, or splinter like wood products; and it will not corrode, rust or have sharp edges like expanded metal or wire tops.
Attaching the DURA-BENCH ULTRA to metal, wood, or a pipe substructure is fast, and easy using stainless steel screws. With (2) pre-molded plastic rails the length of the part, the part can easily be screwed to supports where needed to fasten the top securely to its frame.
*Note: This is a bench top only - bench frame and legs not included.
Excellent for metal stationary and rolling benches
Weight: 4.5 lbs. (2.04kg)
Size: 24" x 48" Nominal (60.96 cm x 121.92 cm)
Each 2' x 4' panel weighs a mere 4.5 pounds and is designed with 1.1" x 2.1" rectangular holes.
Durable plastic will not warp, corrode or rot. Connects on all four (4) sides of the panel allowing any combination of bench sizes to be designed and fabricated.
The DURA-BENCH ULTRA design is 2' wide by 4' long with (4) nylon clips (sold separately) along the 4' side allowing parts to be connected, and uses a (4) tab system that inserts into the opposite end along the 2' side of the panel. This design allows panels to be inserted into each other to get any length bench needed regardless of where the supports are located.

Excellent Greenhouse Bench
These panels have worked very well in my geeenhouse. Lightweight, durable and strong. I recommend them highly. I plan to buy 12 more.
Great for the price
This is a very economical way to put in a nice quality benchtop. Only advice is to support it on 12 centers if you are planning on heavy pots/etc. on them. I framed my bench with 2x4s on 24 centers to match the major ribbing on the tops. I'm thinking it would be better with a frame on 12 centers to reduce flex. Otherwise, SUPER happy for the price, and USA origin. The tabs on the ends to link them to each other are a nice plus. Would definitely buy them again.
Top notch bench top!
Not as strong as other brands but does the job.
Dura-Bench Ultra Benchtop
Ordered 8 sections for a greenhouse table. They were loosely pallet-wrapped, but survived the shipping without damage. Very sturdy ..exactly as described.
I used this product for floor of beagle kennel. Seems to be working good so far waste falls Thur onto the ground.only down side so far is it had to be supported in the center but other than that works well
pretty good product...thought it would be thicker material
Not as heavy duty as I had hoped but meets requirements. Must be supported on 2 ft centers or it sags under the weight of 1 gal plants. Price is right and delivery great.
I just purchased 6 additional units to be used as a 2nd shelf on my greenhouse benches. They are perfect for my use. Excellent Quality!
Arrived as stated. I wish they were a bit more sturdy. I had to support them from underneath with metal rods. I thought they were a bit heavier. However they worked out well. I should have know by the pictures that they need support all around. I'm a Happy camper now.
This is an excellent product, easily shaped to the size you need. Very sturdy
Built an 8' x 32 tall potting bench for our greenhouse, attached to redwood 4x4's with galvanized drywall screws. Could not make in redwood for the price and weight; have 50 four and six inch potted orchids on the bench.
Nice B enchtop, need to mount properly
I've used these for five 4x8 propagation tables and I'll be ordering more. These panels give you a variety of sizes they can be cut to so a variety of table sizes can be accommodated. Best to go to the Southwest Agri-Plastics website and check out their usage information. Never designed to be used across two sawhorses, so that review is from an uninformed customer.
Not ready for high temperatures at this time
I bought 4 tops 4' long intending to install in my hobby greenhouse after building frame. Before I got this assembled I needed a temporary bench for some tomato starts. I put one of the tops on 2 saw horses each set 18 from end in a partially shaded W side of house. When this top was in direct sun it sagged and warped returning to shape with cooling. I can not imagine this will be suitable for a permanent greenhouse installation. I would not recommend this product in temperatures above 95 F.
The Dura-Bench Benchtop is a great product. It is much better than the wire mesh shelf we were using in our greenhouse. It has larger holes and will not rust like the metal wire shelf. It should be a good product to use as new shelving or to replace existing shelving. We will be buying more for the other side of the greenhouse.
I have a small orchid collection in one of my spare bedrooms. Using 2 4x2 feet folding tables and this dure-bench ultra benchtop is working great. Fits the tables perfectly and allows for air to circulate all around the plants. Definitely recommend. Heavy duty and well priced.
Great product. Easy to cut and durable. Perfect for my hobby greenhouse
Benchtop for home greenhouse
We have a small 6x8 greenhouse and home made benches. Found these Benchtops to be solid but easy to fit using a pair of garden clippers.
dura-bench ultra benchtop
I am using these benchtops in my 12x12 greenhouse. They work great, we had to cut several down and it was very easy to do. The benchtops allow drainage and air movement so my plants stay healthier.
I have used these bench tops for a year. I would rate them as good.With gallon pots, they need support at least every 24.
I am opening a greenhouse in the spring and buying the greenhouse, equipment and all the supplies is challenging and expensive. I was very happy to find bench tops so inexpensive, can't wait to start using them.
Very easy to install and absolutely a great price too.
Great for pond transition
Transitioned pond over to large bubbling fountain pot. After using clips to connect several panels, it worked just great to lay over the existing pond. Very happy with purchase!
best choice I ever made
I looked through many books but chose the dura-bench for my small greenhouse. I bought 6 first but after I put them up I knew that was the bench tops for me. I am now building a 12 x 32 and will use only the dura-bench system '
Built a two tier garden shelf, 16 feet long for my green house. Enabled me to start 100 tomato plants, 100 pepper plants, and 75 annual flowers. still had room left over. Sturdy construction. Along each edge and in the middle of each panel is designed a narrow channel. This allows you to place a screw into the frame of your bench and keeps the benchtop from sliding. Highly recommend.
I ordered a couple of panels of these panels and they made great shelves/benches within my greenhouse - they are perfect for various sizes pots to keep them off the ground and provide more growing room in a greenhouse.
Greenhouse Bench Surface
Strong, flexible, lightweight surface for greenhouse benches that can be attached with screws. No sharp edges.
