Metal Caskets - DeVito Funeral Homes

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 gasket protects (but does not fully prevent) the deceased from the entrance of air and other gravesite 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.  The gauge refers to how many sheets of each respective metal required to obtain one inch of metal.  An 18 gauge metal would require 18 sheets of metal to reach one inch, while a 16 gauge metal would only require 16 sheets of metal to reach one inch.  The lower the gauge the stronger and more durable the metal is.  

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.
