18 gauge caskets are very durable and considered to be more durable than wooden caskets. Because they are more durable, they decompose a lot slower than wooden caskets as well. Wooden caskets are slightly less durable than 18 gauge metal caskets because they do not have the protective seal of a gasket, which wraps the casket lid and box to ensure the casket seals against the elements. Gaskets are incredibly useful on our 18 gauge caskets because they also protect the casket interior.
