Steel or Extruded Aluminum Stand for DIY Wood Wrap
Our steel stands are built with 1.5"x1.5", 2"x2" and 2"x4", 1/8" wall tube depending on size of aquarium. All steel stands are coated with a submersion-grade epoxy primer that provides better rust protection than powder coating.
Our aluminum stands are built with clear anodize-coated aluminum extrusions sized 1.5"x1.5", 1.5"x3", or 3"x3" depending on size of aquarium.
The price for aluminum vs. steel stands is the same; however, in most cases the lead time for the steel stands will be longer.
Aquariums used with all our metal stands qualify for the extended 5-year warranty.
Stands are shipped fully assembled. Price includes delivery to freight terminal or a business location with fork lift. Upgrade to residential curbside delivery available.
Panel Mounting Tabs: Add tabs to mount panels to the outside of the metal frame, or add shelves inside the frame. ($6 per tab.)
Top and Bottom Deck: Cut and fit your own top and bottom deck for the stand, or have us do it for you using super-sturdy, 13-ply Baltic birch. (Top deck included for stands purchased with our tanks.)
Electric Panel: Add a plywood electric panel on one of the short sides of your stand which you can use to mount equipment away from the sump compartment. The plywood is easily drilled should you need mounting points or holes for routing your wires.
Leveling Feet: Add leveling feet to the vertical supports to help account for uneven surfaces. Otherwise, simply shim your metal stand. ($12 per foot.)
Additional Height: Our default stand height is 36". The price indicated is for stands 30"-36" tall. Taller stands available at an upcharge.
Additional Design Elements: Add aluminum or plywood shelves, sliding rails, cord management channels, and other features.
