Side-Loading Mortuary Cabinet

The side-loading mortuary cabinet is a 2-tier or 3-tier cabinet and is often used in areas where limited space is available. This cabinet will allow for coffins and/or trays to be loaded into the coldroom through a sidewall rather than through the end.

An insulated roller shutter door is installed on the sidewall with manual operation as standard, but an option is available for the door to be operated electronically via push button or pull cord if required.
