Bronze, a semi-precious material alloy, is the strongest and longest-lasting of any casket construction material. Bronze is resistant to corrosive elements, and makes an elegant, exquisite remembrance.

Copper, a precious metal, is known for its longevity, beauty and resistance to corrosion. Copper is one-third stronger than stainless steel, and its combination of strength and beauty helps memorialize a remarkable life.

Stainless steel, an alloy of carbon steel and chromium, provides strength and resistance to corrosion at an economical price.

Steel, known for its affordability and long-lasting performance, is one of the most popular of casket materials. From the highest quality 16-gauge to a minimum quality 20-gauge, thickness determines the general quality and price.

Wood, a natural and environmentally sound choice, is selected for its warmth, beauty, and uniqueness. A variety of different woods offer an array of personalized choices.

Similar in design to the traditional casket, wood cremation caskets are constructed specifically for cremation.

Natural wood, and steel caskets made of the highest quality, 18 and 20 gauge steel thickness, constructed with four to six extra inches of room for comfort.
