What are Bolted Butt-Joined Modular Planters?
Identical in size and shape according to your specifications, Bolted Butt-Joined Modular Planters are individual modular planters but are bolted together rather than just placed next to each other.
When complete, Bolted Butt-Joined Planters look like one long planter from a side view. However, because the planter tops are visible, it will be apparent that the planter is made up of several individual planters.
These planters have pre-cut holes in the side, near the top, of the planter. The hole placement aligns with the joints and helps installers level and align the planters through the project location. We can provide rubber feet and shims (if requested) to help with the leveling process.
At PureModern, we typically pre-cut holes to help with leveling and add stability about two inches from the top. The holes are evenly spaced widthwise depending on the planter size and your specifications. Holes are generally created prior to powder-coating.
When to use Bolted Butt-Joined Modular Planters?
- Semi-permanent planter installation
- Desire the look of individual planters
- Looking for a watertight modular planter system for interior applications
- There are budget constraints
What Planter material is used for Bolted Butt-Joined Modular Planters?
- Powder-coated marine-grade aluminum
- COR-TEN weathering steel

What types of planter materials do you offer?
Do your planters have drainage systems?
Yes! We offer a number of irrigation and installation solutions.
For irrigation purposes, consider Ollie Plant Sippers, which capitalize on a plant’s own natural capillary action. With this system, plants require 80% less water, and the water holding tank only needs to be filled every six weeks – conserving resources and saving you time and money.
EZ Fill-Ter Bags provide a natural filtration system and are also an effective way to fill your planter that doesn't involve heavy soil or stones.
If you’re planning to hook up to an irrigation system, we can custom-cut drainage holes that fit your unique system.
If you’ve still got questions about how to choose a planter that will provide the right drainage solution for your design plan, find more information here or contact us today.
