Architarium Columbarium System

Made to last generations

Columbarium products tend to look alike. There – we said it. However, the similarity ends at the faceplate. An engineered columbarium is higher quality. It takes engineering to design a system that works for creative architectures. In addition, it takes engineering to manufacture a system that lasts for many years. It takes engineers to create an engineered system. Our degreed engineers started by creating the industry’s first 100% stainless steel columbarium. And we haven’t stopped. In a nutshell, your organization will decide whether to make an investment as opposed to a purchase. How do you place a value on a columbarium? By the impact that it will have on generations on your community.

Operation

It helps to see a product in action. Be sure to watch the video below. As you can see, the niche is easy to operate. And our engineers continuously work to enhance the operation. At the same time, they also work to ensure maximum security. No niche should be easy for someone else to access. (Note: The video shows operation for a funeral service. As a result, the video does not show the inner door in use.)
