SLINGS

 

Kernco Custom Slings
Kernco carries a complete line of slings for the cemetery industry. Their many uses vary from vault movement and placement, material handling to monument handling and placement. We will be happy to guide you through the selection process and insure that your sling is the right tool for your specific need.
Roundsling styles
- Endless (ENR) and Eye & Eye (EER)

Roundslings
Roundslings offer the user the ultimate in lifting security and rigging ease. Roundslings are constructed from a continuous loop of 100% polyester fiber, with the actual number of winds determining the capacity of the sling. Each roundsling is covered with a double polyester woven jacket to protect the load-bearing windings from damage. Because the load-bearing windings never come in contact with the load, they are protected from cuts, abrasions and ultraviolet degradation provided the jacket remains intact. Each sling is tagged for quick and easy identification.

Flatslings
Same as above but with flat windings for those who prefer a wide profile for more surface contact.

Braided slings
Braided slings provide greater security in handling high-capacity loads, while maintaining the qualities our other slings offer. Braided slings are constructed using 3 (6 Part) or 4 (8 Part) endless roundslings. Braid slings offer superior performance in a vertical, choker or basket hitch.

Kernco sling advantages
Lightweight - Reduce cost with less total rigging weight * Easy handling and storage * Reduce risk of back and hand injuries * Safety - Cover abrasion will not reduce capacity * Provides a strong grip on loads * Low stretch = approx. 3% at rated load * Capacities are color-coded * Red core-warning fibers alert user to damage * Provides a tighter choke with an easier release.

BALLISTIC - NYLON TARPS

If you've been using plywood and/or canvas under the dirt to be backfilled into each new grave,k you may have noticed how expensive 3/4" plywood and even medium-weight canvas have become. Since plywood tends to crack and splinter, and even heavy-duty canvas is vulnerable to backhoes and shovels - especially during frequent and hurried use - you may be replacing one or both of these materials quite regularly.

Here's why KERNCO'S ballistic-nylon tarps can more than just cut your dirthandling cost: so tough that, under the same conditions, it can outlast equalweight canvas 20 times! *** Nylon handles at each corner enable the remaining dirt (even when six or eight inches deep) to be rolled toward the grave if the tarp's other two handles have been staked next to the grave. *** Will not tear when pulled away from ice or frost. *** Ballistic tarps are porous - purposely not waterproof - and thus less likely to damage or even kill the grass if the dirt isn't removed right away during hot weather; the grass can "breathe"!! *** When large enough, can be draped against or over an adjacent upright monument, which eliminates spillage and keeps the gravesite cleaner. *** Can't rot or mildew - or splinter *** All seams are triple-sewn *** Grommets aren't needed for using under a dirt pile but will be furnished as desired, at no extra charge.

As an example of how durable these tarps can be: Pine Grove Cemetery in Lynn, Mass. - which has at least 600 burials per year - has replaced them only twice in 15 years!!

EACH TARP IS CUSTOM - MADE TO YOUR INDIVIDUAL REQUIREMENTS

STERIL TENTS

Steril originated the idea of supporting canvas by means of a folding framework, combining the strength and rigidity of aluminum tubing with the toughness and flexibility of hickory. This eliminates the need of interior poles and makes every square foot of coverage useful. Steril Mfg. Co. has been serving the cemetery trade since 1910.

Back Wall is standardly made in one straight section and if used alone may be securely fastened to corner poles.

Side Walls are made in one straight section. Either one or both can be used with or without back or front walls.

Front Wall is standardly made in one piece but may be made in 2 straight sections and therefore being divided at center can be draped back to provide desired size of entrance. Each section may be used individually or in connection with any other wall.

NORVELL HILLSIDE TENTS

     

Norvell's original "one man" set-up frame with patented hinged self-leveling construction. Each piece of frame is interchangeable and will fit any place. Frames are available in galvanized high carbon steel tubing or heavy wall aluminum. All frames have cast steel fixtures, which are guaranteed. Norvell Hillside Tents (10' x 10', 15' x 15' and 15' x 20', 20' x 20') are all built on a hinged-construction basis. This gives many advantages no other metal frame tent offers.

REASONS TO CHOOSE NORVELL
#1 Ease of erection. One man can erect a Norvell Hillside Tent anywhere he can stand or drive a stake.
#2 More wind resistance than any metal frame tent. The hinged construction gives them a slight play which diverts the wind.
#3 Easily erected over monuments and shrubs without having to assemble the tent and then carry it to position.
#4 Corner posts will swing in a three foot circle allowing avoidance of obstacles.
#5 Automatically levels itself. No set screws. No tools required to erect.

NORVELL HILLSIDE TENT WALLS AND MOUND COVERS
STRAIGHT WALL
Our straight side wall is made to shield one side of the tent from blowing rain, snow, wind, or glaring sun rays. Its principal function is protection, although it also provides privacy. Straight walls cannot be converted to awnings.
WINDOW WALL
The window wall is designed to let light into a tent even though side walls are needed for weather protection.  The 15’ wall contains 32 panels of transparent polyethylene, each panel approximately 10” x 12”. The 20-foot wall contains 40 panels. With reasonable care, walls of this type have remained in good condition through five years of use, with only normal wear being in evidence.
WALL COMPLETE TO FORM AWNING
This wall serves the purpose of protection but, in addition, it is made with rope sewn completely around its edges to reinforce all points of strain so that it can be pulled outward and upward to form an awning.  Each wall, when extended, adds 105 square feet of sheltered area to the tent.
NORTHERN STYLE WALL
Northern Style walls and mound covers are made with an extra foot of material on each end which laps around the corner post and fastens to the outside of the connecting wall or mound cover.
SUN EXTENSION
The Sun Extension is made to fit the 15’ side of all Norvell tents.  It is 8’ x 15’ and protects and additional 120 square feet with dignity and beauty.  Scalloped and bound with the same care as the valance of the tent.  Unlike the awning wall (which has no valance), the frame of the Sun Extension is a continuation of the tent. Two corner posts with hinged arms fasten to the tent and to themselves. Two lateral braces which run from the side rail of the tent to the outside rail of the Sun Extension support the canopy top.  The Sun Extension is much stronger than the awning wall and more suited to winter weather.  Walls for the Sun Extension can be up to 23’ long on 15’ x 15’ tents and 28’ long on 15’ x 20’ tents.

MOUND COVERS
These big, roomy mound covers are made in three stock styles.  Each may be used on any side of either style 15’ x 15’ tent or on the ends of either style 15’ x 20’ tent. All covers are seven feet deep and fifteen feet long, the difference being in the back walls.  (See below.) All Norvell mound covers are complete with guy lines spliced to the cover and steel stakes.
STRAIGHT STYLE
The straight, or regular style, mound cover is designed primarily to protect your flowers, grass, lowering device, etc. from exposure to sun and rain.  It has no back wall, but has more than ample space to take care of dirt, grass, and equipment.
BOX STYLE
The box mound cover is designed as an extension to the tent. Due to the fact that the back wall is three feet high, it will accommodate two rows of chairs quite comfortably.
ALCOVE STYLE
The alcove mound cover is designed primarily as an addition to the tent to be used as a family room. This addition, which can be attached in minutes, solves a pressing need for a larger tent. The addition of the alcove enlarges the tent by 105 square feet. Because the back wall is four and one-half feet high, it will accommodate three rows of chairs and will give protection from four sides with one piece of cloth.

NORVELL TENTS


Ridge Pole Style Tent - Ridge Pole tents have no center poles. The inside of the tent is clear. They are light, easy to handle, always straight and do not warp or break under normal use. To further increase the ease of handling and carrying, the ridge pole and support poles are telescoped. The ridge pole and the support poles are made from tubing. All other poles are straight 7' wood poles. Stakes are steel. All-metal poles are also available. All tents include a name panel at no additional charge. Call today for sizes, colors and choice of materials.
Push Pole Style Tent - The push-pole tent utilizes a telescoping center push pole. To prevent wear by the center push pole, the center of the top is thoroughly reinforced with metal plates. The center push pole is made from tubing. All other poles are straight 7' wood poles. Stakes are steel. All-metal poles are also available. All tents include a name panel at no additional charge. Call today for sizes, colors and choice.

Materials for all Tents

13oz. Cotton Duck - Standard colors are made from the highest-quality, 13oz. cotton duck. This is the material normally referred to as canvas duck, it is mildew-resistant and water-repellent. The tops are made slightly large because the material will shrink to fit after used two or three times in wet weather. Don't be fooled by imitations or cheap brands, many use 11oz. duck rather than 13oz. to cut prices. Standard Colors - Pearl Grey, British Tan, and Desert Sand.

Norvell Acrylic Material - Norvell special acrylic material are man made fibers. Acrylic neither shrinks nor fades like cotton. Colors will look new longer, and a top will be lighter in weight, yet slightly stronger than cotton duck.

Acrylic Colors - Norvell Blue, Carolina Blue, Navy, Grey, White, *Norvell Gold, Chocolate, Mocha, Royal Burgundy, *Burgundy, Spruce Green, Hunter Green, Emerald Green, Sea Mist, *Apple Red. (*extra charge)

Three-year color guarantee on all acrylic materials.

STAINLESS STEEL LOT MARKERS

KERNCO introduces their new cemetery lot marker. After years of customers explaining to us how they would "love to use stainless markers, but they rust where the strike lines are", we have come up with the answer. Other "stainless steel" markers are constructed of stainless steel and "gray iron" or inferior 400 series stainless steel. KERNCO's markers are made of 100% 18-80 stainless steel. KERNCO markers will not rust even on the "strike marks".
EASY INSTALLATION - The anchor pin is your layout point. This eliminates setting preliminary stakes which reduces the cost of laying out lot corners to a minimum.

We will number KERNCO markers from your written plot plans or you may Fax them to us. You may purchase markers plain and strike them yourself or use a waterproof ink pen. Whether you decide on striking them yourself or purchasing them "ready to go", KERNCO markers will give your cemetery years of quality service.
Markers are shipped with 8" zinc plated carriage pins unless otherwise stated.

Hand Numbering Machine

You can save money and have total flexibility by hand numbering blank KERNCO stainless steel markers. The kit includes everything you need: Numbering machine, 2 pound fiberglass shaft mallet with rubber handle, carrying case, and heavy duty number (0-9) and strike die made in U.S.A.
