Aqua Gardening Suggests These are Best For

This flood and drain tray frame is best for indoor and outdoor gardeners who need to elevate their flood and drain trays off the ground. It is ideal for those using Duralastics trays, Xtrays, and other generic 100mm deep trays. It provides superior support and stability for your plants while also minimising sway and accommodating extra weight.

Notes from Aqua Gardening

  • The Garland range of poly trays is not strong enough for use with these frames. Use Duralastics, Xtrays, or other generic 100mm deep trays instead.
  • This product listing includes the frame only; trays can be purchased separately in the recommended extras section.
  • When out of stock, frames can usually be made on the same or next business day.

Flood & Drain Tray Frame [108 x 108 x 54cm]

Suits the Duralastics 108cm square tray measuring 108cm around the edges. This frame comes with 4 legs as pictured above. The tray itself is supported slightly below the top rim, so the top rim sticks up approx 4cm. Looks a little ugly, but it feels stronger in support going around this part of the tray's wall.
