Treske are the leading UK Crematorium furniture suppliers with expertise in the design and manufacture of furniture and furnishings required for new or refurbished, modern and traditional crematoria, chapels and funeral parlours.
Each Crematoria or Funeral Parlour requires an individual approach to developing their designs and proposal. Concepts for different crematoria furniture items are discussed and finalised. Within the committal area Treske have designed and made catafalques to rise and fall, as well as those that are fixed or moveable. Lecterns or readers that are adjustable and wheelchair friendly are designed to order, often incorporating full audio visual and curtain control. Similarly, seating frontals, console tables and flower pedestal stands can be designed to coordinate with seating and committal areas. Console tables can also function as a small catafalque for child services.
Treske help plan the seating, allowing for bariatric coffins access or for where to place a coffin stand. Modern or traditional seating options including upholstered chairs, rush or wood seats, benches, pews or sofas. Book holders and chair linkages are available as part of developing modern seating solutions.
Treske design around how the Crematorium works, from busy reception areas catering for funeral directors and staff, to the many different rooms and furniture needs of a modern crematoria. From family rooms offering comfortable chairs or sofa seating, tables, to display cabinets designed to show potential memorials. Flower rooms with access to water and flower preparation flower preparation requirements, and with tiered shelving for flower gifts and displays. Memorial bookcase rooms are frequently required by crematoria, with purpose made memorial bookcases displays.
