Firefighters Memorial Benches Design Process

Below are the steps taken to create the memorial bench.

Send Memorial Bench Ideas

To get started on the Firefighter Bench, be sure to email us any and all ideas you have. This can include photographs, inscriptions, clipart, notes on a word document, etc. For the Draper City Fire Department Bench, we were sent their logo, a photograph, and an inscription to include.

Memorial Bench Proof

Our team takes the design ideas and turns them into a proof of the bench. The proof provides a realistic look of how the finished bench will look. It is emailed to you for final approval before being sent to laser cutting. This gives you a chance to review the design and have any changes made if needed.

Finished Firefighter Bench

The metal bench is laser cut from a metal sheet and bent into shape. Arms and legs are welded onto the bench. Our three-step powder coating process is applied to the memorial bench. Lastly, the finished bench is is packaged up and shipped directly to your location.

Firefighter Memorial Benches Features

Powder Coated Finish

Each memorial bench is sandblasted, primed, and powder coated. Powder coat is applied in a a three-step process that helps protect the bench from chips, scratches, and peeling. Powder coat is also resistant to rust and corrosion. Choose from a large variety of of vibrant powder coating colors. View our color options here.

Laser Cut Designs

Memorial benches are cut using a laser cutter. This method allows for small, precise cuts. This gives our designers the capability to create very detailed portraits, lettering, logos, etc. There truly is no limit to our creative abilities.

Long-lasting Firefighter Bench

At Smith Steelworks, we design Firefighter Memorial Benches that will last for years to come. The benches are cut from a single sheet of metal and bent into shape. Using one sheet of metal cuts down on the number of welds needed; yielding a stronger bench with fewer points of weakness. All welds are fully closed to keep moisture out. The bench is also powder coated (as stated above) to prevent weathering.

Firefighter Memorial Benches Honor Our Local Heroes

Memorial benches pay tribute to local heroes who have given their lives to protect our community, country, and our safety. This Firefighter Bench was created in memory of Matthew Burchett, who lost his life fighting the Mendocino Complex Fire in 2018. We hope this bench will help his family, friends, colleagues, and community heal and continue to remember his life and service.
