The propagation bed is manufactured to provide a bottom heat source for your chosen plants, where you can control the exact environment best conducive for your chosen species and their development.
1850mm x 840mm inside dimensions.
The propagation bed is manufactured from treated pine, making it sturdy and resilient to warping, moisture rot and pest damage. There is a layer of white spun polypropylene on the timber side of the propagation bed to assist with retaining the chosen medium from escaping through gaps between the planks placed on the underside of the unit.
On top of the polypropylene is the heating cable clipped to mesh. The cable is spaced specifically according to the size of the bed to provide an even heat source to all the plants that are placed in the bed. The mesh is used to assist with the heat exchange from the cable to the medium, to ensure the heat radiation is spread evenly across the bed. Also clipped to the mesh is the temperature sensor that reads the temperature and reports it back to the thermostat via the silver wire clipped to the mesh.
On the outside of the treated pine bed is the thermostat control for the heated cable. Extending out from the thermostat is a lead and 240VAC plug. This plug can either be plugged directly into a power supply socket or be lengthened by extension lead to reach the desired power source.
These propagation beds are used continuously in Small Production Nurseries, T.A.F.E. Colleges, Universities, Government Research Facilities, Council Horticultural Departments and by Hobby Gardeners.
