Hand crafted like fine furniture, each wooden casket has it's own unique graining pattern. The natural warmth and beauty of wood is available in a variety of types and species. The interior material of a wood casket is typically either velvet or crepe. The classification "hardwood" simply means that the wood comes from a leaf-bearing tree. "Softwood" comes from the needle or cone-bearing trees. Therefore, designation as a hardwood is not determined solely by the consistency or surface hardness of the wood.
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. Many higher quality metal caskets utilize a sophisticated magnesium rust inhibitor process. Me
The discovery of Chromium in the mountains of Russia in the late 1700's led to the development of the alloy we now know as Stainless Steel. Stainless Steel is a rust resistant material and is available today in the manufacturing process of high quality metal caskets. Most Stainless Steel caskets features high quality velvet interiors and beautiful paint and brushed finishes.
Bronze & Copper
Semi-Precious metal caskets are largely manufactured out of elements such as Solid Copper and Solid Bronze ranging form 32 oz to 48 oz grades. These caskets represent the finest of tributes available and are meticulous in their finish, design and quality interiors.
