Consider a bench to Memorialize a fallen hero on Memorial Day (May 30, 2022)
May 30th of 2022 will mark Memorial Day – a day of remembrance for those who have fought in the American Armed Forces on the people’s behalf. A tribute to fallen heroes that pays respect to the sacrifice made by those men and women who died in the line of duty in the military.
The quote says it succinctly: “All gave some, Some gave all.” A powerful reminder to those still here of the importance of the choices made by those we remember.
Premier Polysteel is proud to honor those that reside as the group of fallen soldiers in patriotic duty to their country.
Many of our customers find us while searching for ways to pay tribute to brave souls who died in military service. This article will highlight our offering for Memorial Benches, which while historically not exclusive to Fallen veterans, are a special way to remember those who did fall. We think it is important given the timing of this holiday, that this is a focal point on our blog to some extent.
Memorial Benches are lasting tributes to important people, ideas and organizations
Our memorial benches have been placed in humble, important places to memorialize people of all walks of life, organizations, donors, contributors, activists, and other people who should be remembered for their contribution to societies of all types. A rare glimpse into the inner workings of the lives of those we may never come in contact with. As we view a memorial bench, we may get that insight and it may compel us to do something in reaction.
We start with a solid foundation.
The long lasting build quality of our benches is a perfect testament to the longstanding traditions, feelings and contributions that are tied to those we wish to help establish a legacy for. The Memorial Benches offer weatherproofing, stability and durability and are made from premium materials including plastisol coated steel. They are built to far outlast just the initial placement.
In fact, our memorial benches have a 20 year warranty – a best in the industry warranty. A majority of our products including memorial benches that have been in place for long periods of time, are specifically designed to outlast all other types of outdoor furniture. Under normal use considerations, our memorial and other outdoor benches and furniture will last far beyond their 20 year warranty.
A premium plaque is included to ensure the legacy you want to showcase is part of the permanent fixture that is the memorial bench.
How can you use a bench from one of America’s premier outdoor furniture makers to help curate a legacy?
It starts with engineering and design. We build our products to be legacy products. The premium steel is crafted and welded to be a stable, balanced inner structure. It is then coated in polyvinyl to seal the envelope around the prepped steel and cured in an oven to ensure complete adhesion and sealing.
Polyvinyl, which is also known as plastisol, is UV, mold, mildew and rot resistant, it is also waterproof in its unbroken state.
The polyvinyl is incredibly durable and has vandalism resistant qualities. It is generally hard to accidentally penetrate the outer coating in order to expose the inner steel to moisture or other environmental elements.
Because these benches are made out of heavy steel they are theft resistant and impervious to normal wear and capacity issues.
The mounting options make them essentially a permanent structure if desired. The premium build quality makes them last more than 20 years – up until which time Premier Polysteel will warranty the bench.
These are easy to maintain benches with easy to clean surfaces that don’t hold water, or excessive heat or cold, and don’t deform or bend. They don’t splinter like wood or fiberglass. They don’t rust or oxidize like bare steel or aluminum, and they don’t have issues with color fade or UV problems.
Honoring the fallen: the importance of memorialization
While we don’t need to take a political stance to support the fallen heroes of our armed forces, we do believe that it is important to honor those who gave their lives in service of their country and who are recognized through this holiday.
This is part of the fabric of what we are as a nation, and we honor our heroes. We are proud to produce memorial benches for this use.

Let us help you to tell a story with a memorial Bench
Memorial furniture is typically best suited for memory gardens, cemeteries, hospitals, assisted living facilities, VFW halls, and other places that were special to the person you are memorializing or to you as the person making the bench design.
Swings should generally be installed by a contractor because the mount is an in-ground only mount.
A small bit of pre-planning can help to ensure this beautiful testament to your hero’s life can stand for a long time and tell the story of this individual and their contributions.
