Graveyard Benches Design Process
Get started on a graveyard bench today. Below is a step by step guide of how the design process works.
1. Email Bench Ideas
To begin, call or email your ideas for the bench. Choose from our three bench styles, sizes, and powder coat finishes. Likewise, include wording, photos, etc. that you would like included on the bench back.
2. Approve Bench Proof
Next, your bench ideas are compiled by our team. We create a bench proof that provides a realistic look at the finished bench. The proof is emailed to you for approval before manufacturing.
Manufacturing Graveyard Benches
At Smith Steelworks, we strive to provide the heaviest-duty memorial bench on the market.
Laser Cut and Welded
The graveyard bench is laser cut to allow for precise, small cuts. The bench parts are then welded together. All welds are fully closed to prevent moisture buildup. Welds are also ground down and smoothed over for a clean finish.
Sandblast White Metal Finish
Immediately after the bench is sent to be powder coated. First, the bench is sandblasted to a white finish. (As shown in picture to the left) Sandblasting removes impurities from the metal including: old paint, rust, oil spots, etc. It also creates a textured profile that is needed for the primer and powder to adhere to the metal surface.
Prime and Powder Coat Finish
Next, the graveyard bench is primed and powder coated. Epoxy primer is 1/10th the size of powder coat top coat and is first applied to the metal and then baked. After, the graveyard bench is powder coated using an electrostatic spray gun. It is once again baked, leaving a durable finished bench. You can view the color options here.
