Exterior Material: 16 Gauge Steel
Exterior Color: N/A
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.
16 gauge caskets are enhanced with Batesville’s™ exclusive Cathodic Protection System, a scientific method that inhibits the formation of rust on outer surfaces to extend corrosion resistance by 2.5 times. In addition, a one-piece rubber gasket helps resist the entry of outside elements into the casket.
