Caskets

We offer a variety of materials and types.

Gasketed vs Non gasketed Caskets

Gasketed vs Non gasketed Caskets

A gasketed casket has a protective, air-tight seal between the lid and the body of the casket. These types of caskets may also be called sealer or protective casket. If the casket doesn’t include this airtight seal, it will be labeled as a non-gasketed casket.

Casket Materials

The two most common materials caskets are made of are wood and metal.

Metal Caskets

Metal Caskets

Standard Steel: Least expensive type of metal casket available. Available in 20-gauge, 18-gauge, and 16-gauge. Gauge refers to the thickness of the metal. The lower the gauge, the thicker the metal.

Stainless Steel: While it is more durable than standard steel it is more expensive. Stainless Steel is available in the same gauges as standard steel caskets.

Copper and Bronze: These materials have rust-resistant properties that steel does not. While they do not rust, they are still prone to oxidization. They are both resilient, superior metals for caskets but far more expensive than steel. These materials are measured in weight rather than gauge.
