7 Key Considerations

When Purchasing A Memorial or Columbarium

When purchasing a columbarium, there are a number of important factors that should be carefully considered prior to making a final decision. The following points may serve as a guideline to help you better plan for your project and stay on budget.

Step One
Avoid purchasing too many niches at once. Empty niches represent your organization’s cash tied up in inventory. If at all possible, try to size your unit to be completely filled within 3 to 4 years. Use Sunset’s Columbarium Calculator as a useful tool to help you with this decision.
Step Two

The columbarium can add significant artistic value to your property and your community. The objective is to wherever possible create a beautiful park and columbaria that encourages people to pay money for their loved ones to be there and to not simply scatter their ashes. Your money is well spent investing in style.

Step Three
The two most expensive components of the columbarium are typically the roof and base. Thus the more niches you can fit between these two components, the lower your per niche cost will be. This implies that:
  • Two-sided niches are more cost efficient than a single-sided unit.
  • Higher columbaria with more rows of niches have a lower per niche cost than a smaller version with less rows.
  • Cylindrical-shaped columbaria without decorative domes and/or moldings can help reduce the cost per niche.
Step Four

The hardest to sell niches are the bottom rows because of both a perceived sense of lower status and the inscription is not at eye level. An investment in Sunset’s Ascension niches for the bottom row is an excellent way to turn the least popular product to sell into the fastest selling niches.

Step Five

Niche sales are proven to be higher in beautifully landscaped areas with benches near the columbaria. Often these are the last items people think of, but they are an essential aspect to your profitability.

Step Six

Make sure you adequately cover the cost of a foundation for the columbarium. Manufacturers do not typically include the foundation in their columbarium quote because the ground conditions vary considerably from region to region. The foundation can be a significant part of your overall columbarium investment and you should account for these costs up front.

Step Seven

Urn manufacturers are making larger urns as part of their portfolio for their own reasons and consequently older style columbaria niches that were dimensioned 9” x 9” x 9” are no longer adequate to suit most family’s needs. Cemeterians are finding it even harder to properly fit 2 urns into a standard 12” x 12” x 12” niche. Sunset can generally custom size your niche to meet your specific needs, but we are finding that for most cemeteries, a 12” x 12” x 16” design is perfectly adequate.

Sunset is the first to introduce new Nylene materials as part of our interior niche cores. Nylene was first developed by the military for use in the M1 Abrams tank and is now used in the fabrication of Predator Drones. Inert to the environment, lighter in weight and pound for pound stronger than steel in compression, Nylene is proving to be a winner in the latest columbarium design and technology. As a cost savings alternative to aluminum, Sunset has employed Nylene in thousands of niches across the country—savings we gladly pass onto our customers.

Locking Inner Door​

Sunset’s aluminum interior locking door system is greatly appreciated by cemetery management for its ease of operation and second level of security, especially when the granite face plate is removed for inscription. Our Aluminum door locking system is corrosion resistant and the perfect choice for our North American climate.

Our interior aluminum locking door system is a standard feature in all of our commercial models.

Aluminum Frame

Sunset’s interior aluminum frame is designed to withstand extreme temperature fluctuations while providing the strength and flexibility to create innovative columbaria forms.

All of Sunset’s Interior aluminum cores are powder coated to ensure a beautiful look and to prevent metal urns from fusing to a non-coated aluminum niche.
