IMPORTANT NOTICE To achieve 25 years + of use, all memorial benches should be Polyurethane (expanding foam) glued, Teak doweled 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 Memorial 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.
