Each bronze casket is equipped with a one-piece rubber gasket, helping to resist the entry of air, water or soil into the casket.
A wide variety of styles, colors and features in bronze are available, allowing you to select a casket that is suited to individual preferences.
Metal - Stainless Steel and Carbon Steel
Stainless steel is known for its quality and longevity, making it a valued material for casket construction. The grade of stainless steel is determined by the amount of chromium and nickel content — the higher the content, the
higher the quality of the steel. Premium stainless steel, also known as 18/8, contains 18% chromium and 8% nickel and is known for its strength and corrosion-resistant qualities. Basic stainless steel contains 12% chromium with no nickel.
Batesville’s carbon steel caskets are available in three grades (from thickest to thinnest): 16 gauge, 18 gauge and 20 gauge. While not as durable or resistant to corrosion as stainless steel, a wide selection of colors, finishes and personalization features make these caskets an attractive choice. They feature a one-piece top, formed from a single sheet of steel, for added strength. A continuous seam weld secures the casket bottom to ensure its structural integrity.
Wood caskets are the choice of families who appreciate and cherish the qualities of natural wood. The warmth, beauty and personality it brings to fine furniture makes this material ideally suited for caskets as well.
Utilizing the finest materials and expert craftsmanship, Batesville ensures that each casket is a masterpiece. Models are offered in a variety of wood species including mahogany, walnut, cherry, maple, oak, pecan, pine, and poplar. With a wood casket, you’ll find there is no substitute for quality, craftsmanship and attention to detail.
