In recent years we have seen a steady increase in the number of people choosing to get commemorative benches as a reminder of a special event in their life. At Wealden Benches, we can help you by creating a high quality commemorative bench, allowing you to remember weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, retirement and much more. Each commemorative bench can be fitted with your choice of a traditional brass or contemporary stainless steel plaque, which can be personalised with your choice of engraving. We also are able to engrave your words directly into the wood for an everlasting reminder. Commemorative benches can be used as a comfortable place to sit and enjoy a beautiful view, while also allowing others to share in a special part of your history. Read More...
We pride ourselves on making our customers happy, and prioritise your satisfaction above all else. If you are not sure exactly what you want yet, our experienced team would be happy to discuss your requirements with you, to ensure that your commemorative bench is perfectly suited to your needs. As with all our benches, we only use the highest quality teak wood, which is quality checked before it is handed to our trained carpenters. Our plaques are incredibly durable and will not deteriorate over time. We can also provide hard and soft ground fixing anchors to add an extra element of security to your commemorative bench.
All of our Teak is Green Leaf certified. This is the equivalent to the FSC and guarantees that the Bench you are buying is sourced responsibly and ethically. The Green Leaf Certificate reduces illegal logging by providing evidence that the Teak is from verified legal sources and by providing specific information on the original source of the Teak.
IMPORTANT NOTICE - To achieve 25 years + of use, all Commemorative Benches should be Polyurethane (expanding foam) glued, Teak dowelled then clamped for 24hrs to ensure that there is no movement in the construction. Although this is an expensive and time consuming process, it is what we do with everyone of our Benches before we deliver. Be aware of buying flat packed Commemorative Benches or those made with cheap glues as wood naturally expands and contracts when left outside so if they are not joined securely they will, after a few seasons, wobble and fail.
