FlexCoSeal® containers (also called elsewhere “body seal”) are air, odour and moisture tight. With a correct usage of the FlexCoSeal® system, the container is hermetically sealed.
There is no need to use a zinc coffin anymore for international funeral transport, leading to an elimination of the risks of injury associated with zinc coffins. With FlexCoSeal® you only use what you need. It is also far more flexible and can be used in any coffin, no matter what size. Zinc coffins are rigid and can only be used in dedicated coffins.
FlexCoSeal® is not limited to international funeral transport, it can also be used for the resting period before the funeral for people who were suffering from an infectious disease. FlexCoSeal® is also the ultimate solution for nasty odours allowing for an appropriate funeral.
FlexCoSeal® is for these reasons interesting for funeral companies, mortuaries, hospitals, laboratoria (pathological and forensic) and emergency services. Especially when a deceased person must be contained for longer periods.
The cost of a FlexCoSeal® container is less than the cost of a zinc coffin. Due to its low weight, the costs of transport by air are also significantly lower.
In day to day use, FlexCoSeal® reduces handling, storage and disposal costs. One roll of 75 meter/246 ft replaces approximately 32 zinc coffins!
For funerals with unpleasant odour issues, family, friends and others paying their last respects may notice the odour. Can you imagine the thoughts these people will leave the funeral with? FlexCoSeal® helps to avoid reputation damage.
FlexCoSeal® can be easily closed within 5 minutes. Sealing the container is done by using a heat sealer that can be simply operated by hand. Opening the container can be done by a pair of scissors. Closing of the same container can be done again with the heat sealer.
The container can be disposed as normal waste. As a result FlexCoSeal® contributes to a lower environmental burden. It can also be burned during a cremation (authorised within the Netherlands by the “Landelijke Vereniging van Crematoria” and included in their list of authorised materials.
FlexCoSeal® protects against the contamination risk from dangerous diseases. Think of ebola. 100% airtight and waterproof. It also reduces the risk of injuries associated with opening traditional containers such as zinc coffins.
