Product Description

The RaftMaster™ is a modular framing system for quickly building aquaponic media grow beds, deepwater culture tanks, sump tanks and even traditional raised beds. The engineered design and precision manufacturing allow for sizing flexibility from small backyard systems to large commercial deep water troughs and media beds. It is carefully designed to utilize only a few different components so that the frames can be quickly assembled. No more wasting your time building wooden rafts that eventually rot and becomes infested with termites, fire ants, carpenter ants etc. 

Easy construction

The frame bolts together quickly, snap on a liner and you are done. Why waste your time trying to build a frame out of wood? (Media bed requires a plywood liner inside the frame.)

Light weight and durable 

  • Most frames are constructed from wood.  Usually this lumber is treated with nasty chemicals to prevent rotting or is painted.  The RaftMaster™ is fabricated from galvanized steel - the same type of material used to construct many commercial greenhouse.  This will provide you with years of dependable use.
  • The tubular design is strong, but light. Most of the smaller beds can be assembled and then moved into their final location.

Flexible

  • from 2' to 8' widths , to any length in 2' increments.  
  • Standard Sizing: The frame is designed to hold standard 2'x4' rafts (or any raft in a multiple of 2' sizes).  The RaftMaster™ bed is slightly larger in length and width to accommodate a little wiggle room for the liner and raft movements.
  • Flexible Sizing: Designed to be expandable by 2' sections, the RaftMaster™ will accommodate almost any growing space. 
  • Easy Assembly:  There are only a few unique parts and with the simple instructions, you'll probably just ignore the instructions once you start assembling!
  • Strong:  Although you shouldn't do this, we have walked along the edges of our frames and they didn't buckle under the weight of an adult.

Includes

  • Detailed step-by-step assembly manual that contains accurate and concise diagrams.
  • Frame components, screws, bolts, and liner clips.

  • Liner
  • Styrofoam Rafts

 

Limitations

  • As with any galvanized product, we don't recommend using this in areas with excessively high moisture and salt levels.
  • The liner clips are made from UV resistant ABS plastic.  Depending on the amount of UV light they receive, they should last 3-5 years before being replaced as needed.
  • The RaftMaster™ bed is designed to be installed on a clean and level surface. The liner that you install will be resting directly on the surface. Therefore, the entire area should be completely clear of any debris that may puncture the liner.
  • When filled with water, the total weight will be roughly 60 pounds per square foot.  Please make sure your area is capable of supporting heavy weights. In other words if you want your beds to be raised the supporting understructure must be able to support this much weight.
