Strawberry Board Shelving


Alitex high level shelving, also known as strawberry boards, are the perfect place to start early spring seedlings and for plants that prefer direct sunlight. The concept of the strawberry board dates back to the heyday of growing in a Victorian glasshouse. Nowadays these boards are more than just about growing strawberries. Having your plants closer to the glass can increase the light intensity up to 50%, which in return can affect the plants’ growth rate.

The shelves are made from molded aluminum extrusions and are fitted using cast aluminum supports. They are available in a variety of sizes and can be custom-made to fit your greenhouse space.

You can choose to mount the shelves along the eaves, the gable or the rear wall of your structure. Each option adds valuable extra space during the busy growing season. The shelving places the plants closer to the glass, providing a higher impact from the sun’s rays. This is particularly useful on cloudy days.
