Cremation caskets are commonly used today when a loved one is to be cremated but the family wants to conduct a traditional funeral service or visitation prior to the cremation. Cremation caskets are available in a wide variety of styles and prices, and differ from standard caskets only in that they are often made up of lighter weight materials.
Cloth Covered Caskets
A cloth covered casket is beautiful, yet modestly priced as a result of the construction methods and materials used in their manufacturing process. This makes them an affordable casket choice for many families.
Metal caskets are offered in a variety of metals including bronze, copper, and stainless steel. Metal caskets are known for their renowned durability and protective seal. Metal caskets typically have a sealed enclosure making it difficult for outside elements to penetrate the interior. Families can have peace of mind knowing that their loved one is protected.
The cost of metal caskets varies depending on the type of metal used and thickness of the metal. Bronze and copper metal caskets are often made from 32-ounce metal, and steel metal caskets can come in 16, 18, or 20-gauge metal.
Bronze and Copper are metals that have been used for centuries by sculptors and artists. Copper and Bronze caskets are made from permanent non-rusting materials. They are considered to be the highest quality metal casket available.
Stainless steel metal caskets are also an excellent and more economical choice. These caskets are constructed from strong and durable metal. Stainless steel is most commonly used in beautiful watches. Stainless steel caskets are made with rust resistant properties. They are available at a more budget friendly price and offer exceptional value in comparison to bronze or copper caskets.
No matter what type of material you choose, a metal casket will serve as a beautiful and durable final vessel for your loved one. If you have questions about our selection of metal caskets, please call us for more information
