Metal Caskets


Metal caskets are commonly manufactured in 20, 18 and 16 gauge metals. Interiors are tastefully coordinated in a variety of materials form crepe to velvet allowing for a range of pricing to meet a wide variety of budget concerns.

The majority of metal caskets available on the market today are known as "protective" caskets. This terminology reflects that they are manufactured with a one-piece rubber gasket that runs around the inner lid of the casket.  Once closed, a locking mechanism draws the lids onto the base and the gasket forms a seal. This protective seal protects the deceased from the entrance of air and other gravesite elements.

Metal caskets offer unique finishes and protective features. Bronze and copper caskets are known for their durability and beauty. These caskets are non-rusting and have a air and watertight seal for lasting protection. Stainless and carbon steel caskets come in a variety of grades and gauges and are available with or without a protective seal.

For your convenience, our metal caskets are divided into premier, standard, and basic categories.  To see these images and the specific details of our selections, please click on a category below.
