We got the chance to setup and review the Botanicare Slide Bench, one of the latest additions to the commercial hydroponics industry. This bench offers a substantial increase in efficiency, flexibility, and profitability for commercial growers.
If you aren’t familiar with the Botanicare Slide Bench, it is a premium hydroponics bench that helps commercial growers get the most out of their floor space. It completely eliminates the need for aisles in a commercial warehouse or grow room, maximizing the use of expensive, limited floor space. To create an aisle, simply slide the bench out of your way and walk through. In our opinion, this alone makes it a must have for serious commercial facilities.
Review of the Botanicare Slide Bench System
Overall, the Botanicare Slide Bench is great commercial system. There isn't really any other system we can compare it to, because there is nothing quite like it.
While the Active Aqua Rolling Bench is another great hydroponics bench, it wouldn't be fair to compare the two, as Botanicare is the first to introduce a complete, all in one system. Here are a few reasons we love the Botanicare Slide Bench:
Flexibility For Commercial Growers
The Botanicare Slide Bench allows unprecedented flexibility in the grow room, with a seemingly endless number of configurations. You can choose between 4' or 5' tray widths, and lengths ranging from 10.5 feet all the way to 100.5 feet! You can tailor this system to meet your exact needs.
Maximum Efficiency and Profitability Of Your Commercial Grow
The main reason we love this bench is because it allows you to squeeze out every last square foot of your grow room possible. The premise Botanicare operated on when designing this bench is simple: Less aisles means more plants, which means more profit!
Made from premium Components and Construction
From the top down, this bench is built from high quality materials and will stand the test of time. From the premium ABS grow trays, all the way to the strength of the frame itself. The Botanicare Slide Bench is a quality piece of equipment.
The Botanicare Slide Bench Drainage System
Whether you are using an ebb and flow system or a hydroponic drip system, you can fine tune your drainage system to allow for quick and automated draining of your runoff. Using the included Loctite sealant ensures your nutrient solution stays in the trays, and drains back into your reservoir leak-free.
Integrated Trellis Support System Within The Slide Bench
Another really cool part of the Botanicare Slide Bench is the trellis inserts, which allow you to easily train your plants with trellis netting across the bench. The supports are built into the bench, and simultaneously work to hold your grow trays in place and prevent movement.
How to set up the Botanicare Slide Bench
This bench can take some time to set up, as there are a lot of components. The longer your bench is, the longer it will take to assemble. Here is a quick video guide on setting up the Botanicare Slide Bench, but you can click here for a full in-depth text guide on installation.
