Caskets

We provide a wide selection of caskets to meet the personalized needs of all families

 

Wooden Caskets                                                                 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 itself, but the species of the tree from which it came. Cost can vary depending on whether the sides of the casket are constructed from solid wood or a veneering process has been utilized.

 
Metal Caskets
    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 grave site elements. Many higher quality metal caskets utilize a sophisticated magnesium rust inhibitor process. Metal caskets are commonly manufactured in 20, 18 and 16 gauge metals, Stainless Steel, Copper and Bronze.  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.

 

 

Cloth Covered Caskets                                                        
    An economical choice for families, cloth covered caskets are modestly priced as a result of the construction methods and materials used in their manufacturing process.  Builders do not have to concern themselves with precise joinery or solid wood products because the exterior is wrapped in a fabric cloth covering.The choice of modest quality materials is further used in interior fabric, bedding and pillow treatments in an effort to further reduce the cost.

 

 

Rental Caskets

    Families are increasingly requesting to rent a casket. To facilitate this request we offer caskets designed to allow for this service. The casket is a specially crafted unit that facilitates an inner simple container to hold the person. The casket itself acts as a "shell" around this container making it suitable for public visitation and viewing. After the funeral service, the funeral director removes the inner container from the outer casket shell. The inner container holding the person is then transported to the place of final disposition, usually a crematorium. The outer casket is reused for a number of services. Eventually the casket reaches a point of wear and it is destroyed. Because its usage is limited, the rental casket is replaced after a relatively small number of uses. However, due to the reusable nature of these units they can be also appreciated by families with environmental concerns.
