Grave elements

Grave elements for individual memorials

Most cemetery regulations allow corten steel and stainless steel   as grave enclosures or tombstones. This is a pleasant fact, because the earthy colours of the stylish rust-red Corten steel fit well into a cemetery ambience. 

There is certainly no off-the-peg solution for tombstones. But our offer already includes a whole range of grave enclosures, tombstones, memorial plaques, crosses made of metal as well as Grave lights made of corten steel, stainless steel or colour-coated stainless steel. We have also designed larger memorial stelae, e.g. for central memorial sites, such as our CERA element.

Depending on the type of grave (normal grave or urn grave) or the size of the grave (single or family grave)  standing tombstones or lying boards are suitable. Lying tombstones may be placed by the relatives themselves. If necessary, standing gravestones must be anchored securely in the ground by a specialist company.

Be inspired by our examples and send us your ideas and sketches. We realise these metal objects for your memorial together with you, so in the end a very individual memorial object for your loved one is created.

Things to know about gravesites - legal requirements

Graveyards are public spaces where bereaved families privately “lease” graves for a set period of time. The use of a gravesite is regulated in the respective cemetery regulations. Before erecting a tombstone, a permit must therefore always be submitted to the cemetery administration with details of the material and appearance of the desired tombstone as well as the intended inscription in the form of a construction drawing. We will be happy to provide you with these documents on request.

Stricter rules apply to the erection of standing tombstones or grave crosses than to lying ones, because these could fall over and injure cemetery visitors. The stability of the standing tombstones is examined annually by means of a shaking test.
