We believe that cremation niches are more than just a place to put an urn. Our design philosophy is embodied in the statement: The Last Home
A modular niche system that allows for variations in design while keeping the basic structure and construction technique clear and easily deployable.
Our system allows for not only variation in the horizontal pattern (moving away from the stacked and essentially boring patterns of columns or silos) but in the vertical pattern as well.
The design allows for pattern variations and sizes within the same column or row making the unit work for your particular needs and design desires: making your installation architecturally beautiful and interesting.
Our solution also offers the ability to build incrementally and add to your niches (either vertically or horizontally) while maintaining the appearance of ONE unit – one structure, one design.
In addition, our niches are adaptable: if you have a design that doesn’t meet your customers’ expectations, it can be changed: no harm, no foul… as the saying goes.
At Biondan North America, we took this development to heart
How do we give the cemetery (our customer) options for their customers?
What can we design that meets this varied need?
Strength: Our unique box-on-box technology makes each niche a self-contained, cellular unit – like a honeycomb, adding to the overall strength of our unit – there are two walls between each opening.
Our patented junction (connector) system locks each box to its neighbour making a rigid structure while allowing for that infinite variation in design. Our sealed fenestration system – in either anodized Aluminum or high-finish Bronze – completes the structure, allowing you to use bevelled glass, marble, granite… or any shutter you choose – completing the beautiful structure that directly meets the design choices and options you seek for your mausoleum or cremation space.
Our lighting was designed – again “from the ground up” – not just adapted from some other use or cheap application.
We thought through HOW your niches will be constructed, installed, managed and maintained – taking care to have a lighting system that will provide years of use and ease of maintenance.
No lighting system – no light – will work forever, it must be maintained with ease of installing replacement parts and maintaining systems that deteriorate over time.
We thought all this through to make a system that was not only robust with an extremely long life but could be maintained continually with easily replaceable parts.
All these elements add up to the best niche system on the market… a system that gives you full control over your design needs while providing you the best and ultimately most affordable system available. You want the best, we provide it.
Flexibility, durability, quality, ease of installation and ease return on investment.
Available with bronze or aluminium fenestration, our Modular Niche System is constructed if zinc-coated, powder painted, steel boxes assembled double-walled to give you the strongest metal niche system you can find on the market.
Each part has been designed for strength and ease of assembly – all while providing that flexibility for your unique installation.
Even if you change your mind after installation, our niche can be reconfigured to change a layout. Expand your unit as your need change, while maintaining the original look and feel of the primary installation. You can grow at your own pace and in your own budget.
We offer 6 mm thick, beveled glass fronts for all our niches, including our curves.
Our see-through niches come with 6mm tempered glass backs that match the clarity and dur
ability of the whole system. Our selection of opaque shutters includes beveled bronze, beveled aluminium, marble, granite, or speciality Kosmolux; all to suit your particular installation or artistic need.
Each niche is a unique individual space… The Last Home. They are designed to give your customers that comfort of knowing that their loves ones are being placed in the best crafted, designed, and manufactured space that maintains the durability and dignity required in your cemetery.
