Northern Environmental Caskets

In order to perfect the Enviro-CasketTM, a number of elements contained in conventional caskets had to be eliminated while ensuring that functional properties of the casket were maintained. The elimination of metal was the most obvious of our challenges. Metal used for handles in conventional caskets is a ferrous metal stamp or cast to shape and finished with conventional lacquers and varnishes which contain a number of petrochemicals. Producing a wood equivalent was relatively easy, but creating a wood handle that met the same functionality was most difficult. Northern Casket's patent pending "Non-Lift" 100% wood swing bar handle is a triumph within the industry. Secondary metals, such as hinges, nails, catches, brackets, staples, all presented us with unique challenges, all of which were solved... some using traditional methods, others using new ingenuities.
