Flat Wall Insert

 

A flat wall insert columbarium slides into a wall. The wall is custom built by the client or builder. The columbarium attaches to the wall mechanically with hardware that we provide. Trim can be mortar or decorative.

This style is most suited to organizations which want the columbarium to architecturally integrate with the surroundings. It is less complex, therefore less expensive, than other styles.

  • Designed and fabricated by degreed engineers
  • Flat, stepped, double-sided, etc.
  • Construction drawings
