Astral Offers Oversize Caskets

From a press release. 

It’s a known fact that the number of overweight and obese people in the United States is increasing daily. In an effort to help funeral directors serve families with loved ones of size, Astral offers a selection of oversize caskets that not only are affordable, but also give the family options for personalization. The caskets are offered in two sizes: 32” inside width (with a 32.5” outside width which fits into the first oversize vault and standard grave plot) and a 28” inside width (with a 28.5” outside width which fits into a 29” vault and grave plot). Both sizes of caskets are available in five attractive colors, 20 gauge steel, gasketed or non-gasketed, swing bar hardware, personal ID capsule, and a full warranty. Personalization options are available since every Astral panel fits almost all Astral manufactured caskets, including the oversize.

Located in Lynn, Indiana, Astral manufactures 20 gauge, 18 gauge and stainless steel caskets, as well as supplies cremation and wood products.
