Greenhouse Staging Strength Test

The greenhouse can easily get cluttered, disorganised and generally become a untidy without the provision of greenhouse staging and that kind of chaos is bad news for gardeners but good news for greenhouse pests.

We’ve spent a great deal of time researching the greenhouse staging market, and about the same duration in thoroughly testing our design. Our greenhouse staging has been put through its paces at Stephanie’s Kitchen Garden and although our customers were more than satisfied with the build quality and strength of our staging units, there was one outstanding question we still hadn’t answered – what weight will it hold?

Perhaps it’s not key to a successful unit – our customers would probably place strength, value for money, rigidity and ease of assembly above load-bearing on any staging attribute tick list – we thought we’d find out, and the result of our testing was amazing!

We used one of our two-tier, 173cm (5’8”) greenhouse staging units and started to load it up with bags of compost. Two bags per module (the 173cm long unit consists of three modules) became three, then the lower tier came into play until finally...we ran out of compost! But that’s not before we calculated that each module was supporting a heavyweight 77kg of compost, far in excess of any ‘normal’ greenhouse load.

When you admire this impressive feat of staging strength, and throw in the other high specification details below, it’s not hard to understand that we’re justifiably proud of our greenhouse staging – and as we said, if you want an incredibly strong yet lightweight, durable, anti-corrosive, reassuringly rigid, top quality staging unit for your greenhouse, then you’ve come to the right place!
