Bronze, a semi-precious material and an alloy of copper and either zinc or tin, is the strongest and longest lasting of any casket construction material. Bronze is resistant to corrosive elements, an important consideration in selecting a casket.
A natural, environmentally sound choice for caskets, hardwood is strong, beautiful, and shock-resistant. When families choose a hardwood casket, they are leaving a legacy for the next generation because wood is a renewable resource.
Today, stainless steel continues to provide the greatest value to families and funeral homes. Not only does it offer the quality and durability of copper and bronze for the price of standard steel, but it’s a product that families understand and value in their everyday life.
The long-lasting nature of metal combined with its affordability and performance make steel caskets one of the most popular selections. The range of colorsmakes each selection unique. Two major classifications are 18-gauge steel and 20-gauge steel.
Copper is considered a precious metal, and evidence of its longevity rests in the original copper roofs and pipes which survive in the world’s greatest architectural gems. It is one-third stronger than stainless steel and available in 32-ounce weight.
These eco-friendly caskets are handcrafted by skilled weavers as a small cottage industry, not in factories. They are created from sustainable materials, giving them a small carbon footprint. They are lined with a natural, un-bleached cotton interior.
