Wide slats are 1.2m long x 55mm x 21mm and narrow slats are 1.2m long x 35mm x 21mm. Please check the hole centres on own your bench end to see which one you need.

The Straps, Bolts and Braces

Included in our assembly kit are all the straps, bolts and braces needed to restore your bench. The supplied 2 angle braces are pre-bent and drilled.

Please note: due to the various types of benches, and for shipping convenience, the centre strap is sent flat and undrilled. It requires bending and drilling by yourself.

You also get a set of 26 M6 x 40mm BZP bolts, nuts and washers, and a set of 14 A20 x 20mm stainless screws.

End-Fix Slats

PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF the location of the holes on the Standard Bench kit's slats. It is rare, but some 12-slat benches may require "end-fixed" slats, where the holes are drilled into the end of the slat instead. If your bench ends need slats like the below, please see our end-fix slats kit.
