3.) 18 gauge steel is a slightly thicker grade steel than 20 gauge steel.
4.) Gasketed caskets, also called a "sealed" or "sealer" casket have a thick rubber gasket surrounding the entire lid. This creates a sealed enclosure similar to a refrigerator or car door rubber. Non-Gasketed caskets do not have a sealed enclosure, instead are closed and are latched without the use of a gasket, making it easier for outside elements to penetrate the interior of the casket.
5.) A vault is used to prevent the ground from caving in over a casket due to the eventual sinking of a grave. Vaults are not required by law however, most cemeteries require a vault to keep the ground level. Basic vaults are made of concrete where as more elaborate models are made of precious metals such as bronze.
