What Are Our Commemorative Memorial Benches Made Of?

All of our memorial benches for sale are made of recycled plastic lumber that comes from high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Recycled plastic HDPE is an environmentally friendly alternative to traditional wood because it is highly durable and fade-resistant, creating heavy-duty park and memorial benches that last. Because it's non-porous, it doesn't rot, splinter or crack like natural wood. This makes it an ideal choice for outdoor memorial benches and other furniture. Recycled plastic memorial benches are also mildew resistant and impervious to graffiti.

Unlike wood and metal tribute benches, HDPE products do not require regular maintenance like scraping and painting. Only recycled lumber outdoor memorial benches offer long-lasting beauty without any upkeep.

How To Clean Outdoor Memorial Benches

Memorial benches made from recycled plastic lumber are incredibly easy to clean. Just spray with a hose or scrub with a soft-bristled brush once a year or as needed to keep your memorial bench looking as good as new.

Painted graffiti can be removed with a solvent cleaner, and carvings can be smoothed over using common tools to buff away the gouges.

How Can I Customize a Memorial Bench?

  • Memorial Benches With Plaques
