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.
Many wood caskets are now constructed with veneer. These caskets are often more affordable than "solid" hardwood caskets. Many times, you cannot tell the difference between a solid hardwood and a veneer casket.
The majority of metal caskets available on the market today are known as "sealer" 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 seal helps reduce the entrance of water, dirt and other gravesite elements into the casket interior.
Additionally, some metal caskets utilize a sophisticated magnesium rust inhibitor process. Metal caskets are commonly manufactured in 20 and 18 gauge thickness. Interiors are tastefully coordinated in crepe to velvet allowing for a range of pricing to meet a wide variety of budget concerns.
Non-sealing type caskets are also available.
