Thin Blue Line Police Bench

Has your community recently mourned the loss of a local hero? A ‘Thin Blue Line’ police bench stands as a fitting tribute to honor the brave officers who have made the ultimate sacrifice. This particular bench was crafted in memory of Sergeant Alex Hamzy, who tragically lost his life in the line of duty on October 12, 2022. Smith Steelworks has added a unique touch to this bench with a distinctive blend of three powder coating colors, creating a truly remarkable piece without the need for a backing plate.

  1. To start, we primed the entire bench.
  2. Next, we applied a vibrant Bengal Blue powder coating to the flag stripe, followed by curing in an oven.
  3. After precisely taping over the stripe, we added a sleek Glossy Black coating to the remaining flag area.
  4. Once the black coating had cured, we again carefully taped over the entire flag and completed the look with a stunning Cobalt Blue finish.
