20-Gauge Metal Choices in Chicagoland
100% MADE IN THE USA… unlike our online competitors
Steel caskets are affordable and durable. While they are not as strong or long-lasting as semi-precious metal caskets such as bronze, copper or stainless steel, the steel caskets are a reliable option. Steel caskets are available in 16- (thickest), 18- (Medium) or 20-Gauge (thinnest) in a large range of colors.
For example, 18-Gauge Caskets are .83 millimeters thicker (about a sheet of paper) than a 20-gauge. 16- & 18-Gauge are more expensive due to a larger shell casket, swing handles, higher quality fabric and brushed top/sides.
20-Gauge Caskets are the most economical metal caskets on the market. If you are cost conscious or just trying to watch your budget, consider these instead of the 18-gauge casket. Please Note: Some head panels and hardware may vary from photos base on what is available at the time of purchase.
