Price Guide: POA

Battery Electric Mausoleum Shutter

The removable vacuum attachment is designed to handle all sizes of shutters from singles to large couch units. It has eight vacuum cups fitted with all eight adjustable to be able to be placed onto the shutter no matter where the inscriptions are. The four outside width cups are completely removable so that the unit can get into the tight spaces that the single shutters sometimes occupy.

Each vacuum cup is fitted with a vacuum locking system to trap in the air with the four inner cups monitored to ensure that there is vacuum pressure at all times. The unique vacuum system set up has dual compressors that feed into an air storage tank that is fitted to a air gauge and light tower so that the operator is fully aware of what the vacuum system is doing at all times.

The vacuum carriage is fitted with side shift as well as level swivel to ensure that the shutter is always in the right position for removal and replacement. There is also an electric tilt mechanism to tilt the shutter as required during the removal/replacement stage which is designed to remove both the roset and lip shutters.

The vacuum on is controlled by a wireless remote which  operates the tilt function, vacuum on, mast shift forward and back, slow raise and lower. To disengage the vacuum there is a two button set up which requires two hands to disengage the vacuum.

The vacuum attachment is designed to be removable and placed into a special storage trolley whilst not in use.
Coffin Transfer Attachment

The coffin transfer attachment is also fully removable ad has in built wheels fitted to it so that when it is removed from the unit it can be wheeled away for storage.

The transfer bed is fitted with multi directional Rotacasters which a powered in the longitudinal direction to facilitate the transfer of coffins into the crypts. This is controlled by the wireless remote control so that there are no interfering wires leading up to the transfer bed.

The transfer of coffins into the couch set up is done manually by pushing the coffin across the multi directional rollers.
As the rollers are driven this also acts as a brake to hold the coffin in place until the transfer is required.

The unit can come in a manual push and power drive with step-less speed control, this allows the unit to be operated on sloping surfacers.


Coffin Handling Systems
Coffin handling is an occupational health and safety issue that sometimes get ignored. Total Lifting Solutions has come up with some solution options to eliminate some of the issues associated with the moving of coffins.
Inserts for Vans
When transporting coffins around a handling system is needed so that at least four coffins can be transported without the problem of lifting a coffin to a second level in the rear of the transport van. A system has been designed that allows the upper level to be raised above the lower level use the battery system fitted to the vehicle. The system uses linear actuators to raise and lower the upper level into position. This system gives the unit a smooth and safe operation as the linear actuators drive the system in both directions.

The lower section is fitted with small polyurethane rollers which give the coffins a resistance free access to the vehicle and is fitted with an adjustable locking system to secure the coffins in place.
The system operates via a corded raise and lower control as well as a fixed button raise and lower control.
Mobile Coffin Lift

In conjunction with a leading funeral director a unit has been devised that enables coffins to be raised and lowered so that they can be placed in a van with fixed multiple levels and also for storage of coffins prior to requirement. The unit is a stand alone system with a narrow inbuilt scissor system which is battery powered and uses a low noise linear actuator to achieve the height required. A low height of 630mm to a full height of 1650mm gives great flexibility and precise placement as required. The scissor system lowers between the support frame so that the coffin can rest on rubber stoppers that stop the coffin from moving whilst in transit.
Mausoleum Transfer System

  • A transfer system that allows coffins to be placed into crypts with minimal force using either a powered transfer or manual transfer system.
  • The powered transfer system is fitted with a very low noise chain driven roller system that drives the coffin across rollers fitted into the flat bed.
  • The manual system is fitted with 600mm wide rubber conveyor rollers that allow a person to roll a coffin into position.
