At Sunset, our engineering advantages are what sets us apart. 

  1. We don’t depend on the wall for rigidity. Sunset glass niches are designed to be free standing with periodic safety connections to the wall.  This design enables lower cost island configurations.
  2. We have the engineering skillset to address seismic conditions.
  3. We can provide more load bearing capacity within our interstitial niche space. This design feature allows us to create an all-glass corner niche without a support post creating a slick more modern “floating” appearance. 
  4. Our strip lighting location is set in a more central location of the niche to better highlight the urn.
  5. For cemeteries and churches that already have existing mausoleum niches or interior rooms, we have the “in-house” manufacturing and design flexibility to compliment any existing style.

Open the corner space for more marketability.

Our angled corner glass niches are becoming a feature niche where two right angled walls can meet. 

This niche application is used to open up corner spaces to become more marketable. These niches are employed at the intersection of 2 perpendicular cremation niche walls. Traditionally, inner corner niches were considered an undesirable location for viewing due to the close proximity of surrounding niches.

The 45° corner glass front niche solves this problem, therefore becoming a premium space that is more marketable and preferred by families.

90° Corner Glass Niches

Enhance the view with a second sightline.

These glass niches are designed as a feature niche on the end of a flat wall or island niche unit. The corner glass front niches allow for greater visibility of the urns from 2 directions.  The corner glass niches allow more natural light to enter the niche and illuminate the urns. It is a desirable niche for showcasing personal memorabilia.  This is a highly marketable interior niche feature.

Frequently Asked Questions

At Sunset, our engineering focus is based on the concept that the columbarium must not rely on the wall’s rigidity. Our interior glass niches are designed to be a free-standing structure that is periodically connected with safety connections to the wall. The frames’ core strength takes advantage of the interstitial niche space which allows us to add sleek corner glass features that do not require a corner support post. A Sunset glass niche columbarium can also be engineered to address seismic conditions. We have an innovative strip lighting that can illuminate: the front, centre, or back of the glass niche. This allows us to either compliment an existing lighting layout or provide beautiful illumination of an urn.

 

Before we can begin providing you with an interior niche price, there are a few things that our designers and engineers require. First, we require either architectural drawings­­­­­­­­ (if available) or hand drawn measurements of the room. We will need to know the size of the room, the walls’ length, width, height, and depth of space in front available. We will also need to know: the measurements of the doorway entrance, the access sizes of stairways and elevators. Secondly, we appreciate receiving photography of the room, entrance, and existing glass niche walls as this help us to better imagine the space and provide you with complimentary design options. Once we have received these documents, measurements or images, our engineers can then begin the drawing process to create glass niche layout options for your review. Once you have approved a design concept, we will then be able to provide you with an interior niche quote that will include both shipping and installation.

However, we understand that some families prefer a taller, more elaborate urn for their loved one. For these situations, we have the capability to make custom indoor columbarium niches that can be larger or smaller if desired. Don’t hesitate to ask about incorporating a custom niche size into your next interior niche design.

At Sunset Memorial & Stone, we understand that some of our clients may have older versions of interior cremation niche products or mausoleum niches. Our columbarium glass niche models can be designed to make a connection with the existing product.
