Coffin information:

Chipboard:

Chipboard is approved for coffin and casket manufacturing by the South African Bureau of Standards.

Chipboard (Particleboard) is wood particles bonded with resin adhesive under heat and pressure. If chipboard is used correctly in the manufacturing process, you will never have a problem with bottoms falling out. Most people are surprised to find out that 75% of coffins sold daily are made out of chipboard.

Wood:

Coffins that are made out of wood is usually made out of pine. Pine is fairly cheap in comparison to Hardwood. Coffins are deemed to be cheaper than Caskets. Caskets on the other hand, especially Dome Caskets are considered to be top of the range and is usually made from Hardwood. Hardwood is expensive and limited in availability.

Pine coffins and caskets are in demand due to it being less pricy than its counterpart hardwood product.

Cold Storage

  • Facilities for 30 deceased
  • Back up Generator
  • Coroner services for embalmments and post mortems

Not all funeral arrangements can be made immediately, family members need to be contacted and arrangements made. Total Funeral Logistics understand these problems and offers our clients an affordable solution.

Why we use Cold Storage

  • Without cold storage decomposition advances rapidly.
  • Within 12 to 48 hours in hot climates, decomposition will be too advanced to allow facial recognition.
  • Cold storage slows the rate of decomposition and preserves the body for identification.

Business Offering

  • Highly Competitive Pricing
  • One stop service
  • Well equipped vehicles and drivers
  • Efficient turnaround time
  • Ethical business practises
  • Small enough to adjust quickly to market changes, big enough to handle increasing demands

Losing a loved one is hard enough. Trust Total Funeral Logistics to assist you every part of the way.
