Our Bronze plaques are manufactured from the finest material adding to our extensive range of cemetery products. Bronze is a traditional plaque with usage dating back to Egypt 1570BC, therefore proving its age and resistance to corrosion. Create a beautiful bronze plaque that is a permanent and lasting memorial for your loved one. Giving a sacred place for many to visit and reflect on the life of the deceased.
Our bronze plaques are cast and painted and then the top surface of the inscription, motifs and border is machined to highlight the natural bronze colour. The background is painted with a high quality paint of a colour selected by our customer. When the manufacturing operation is complete, the whole plaque is sealed with a high quality clear lacquer that helps to preserve the bright shiny colour of the natural bronze.
Top Tip: Choose a dark coloured background they are more durable in the sun
