From our FAQ section below
How strong are your benches?
Our Red Flagstone is known as one of the strongest red rocks available in the World. The silica and sand consistency is what petrifies it to an incredibly durable compound. Unlike stone from other parts of the country, this red flagstone maintains its integrity and strength in all types of climates. The structural strength of this particular stone makes it suitable for use in a residential setting as well as at public parks and cemeteries. Most of our benches are used in private memorial gardens however if placing in a public area, you will need to check with the local rules and guidelines for parks and cemeteries as some have strict guidelines as to the type of stone being used and size of the bench and how it is installed. We cannot be responsible for orders placed prior to a customer getting approval for the bench to be placed in the intended environment, this is why it is important for the customer to have all the approvals prior to ordering the bench from us, as all sales are final.
