Can a Teak Memorial Bench Be Left by the Sea?
By Adam Thain

Recently i was asked by a customer whether a Teak Memorial Bench could be left on a an exposed coastal path facing the sea for fellow walkers to rest their legs and remember a friend. Quite simply, indeed they can.

The harsh and exposed conditions that you will experience along a coastal path will erode and eat away at a standard concrete bench. Metal benches also suffer from the salty conditions and will overtime oxidise and rust away. Unlike concrete and metal benches, the high levels of natural Silica and Rubber found in high quality Teak Memorial Benches will withstand the wet and salty conditions for many a year to come. In Asia they still construct traditional boats from Teak for this exact reason.

I would also offer this advice: Opt for a Stainless Steel commemorative plaque over Brass plaque for a maintenance free Bench in these harsh and exposed conditions. For the same reasons, buy the heaviest duty stainless steel brackets within your budget to fix your bench securely down - this way the fixtures and fittings will last just as long as the bench.

I am also often asked whether you need to fix additional 'risers' to the bottom of each leg when a Teak Bench is placed on grass or in a damp environment. Just as outlined earlier, the high levels of natural Silica and Rubber found in Teak prevent water seeping up the legs and rotting the wood so you would not need any additional protection.
