Burial Vaults

 

Burial Vaults help protect the deceased and the casket or urn against the entrance of any environmental elements such as water or insects.

A broad selection of vaults are available, ranging in levels of protection from a basic concrete product to highly protective lined vaults, manufactured with a combination of concrete cores and ABS Plastic liners, while Copper and Bronze linings provide the greatest amount of protection available.

In many areas, cemeteries require the use of some form of burial vault be used with any interment to help protect the stability of the grave.

 
What Is The Purpose Of A Vault
The weight of the earth above a grave can exert tremendous pressure. Mechanical equipment, backhoes and delivery trucks can exceed 25,000 pounds as they pass over the grave. Brial vaults weigh between 2,300 and 2,700 pounds. They are designed to support these tremendous forces from above.

Some of the most important reinforcement in burial vaults lies in the vault cover. The covers of burial Vaults employ primary and secondary reinforcement to help support the loads from above. In addition, the design of the burial vault cover and carapace distributes pressure from above evenly over the vault surface. Additional reinforcement is placed in the concrete itself.

The use of lining and sealing materials places the most efficient resources available between the outside forces of weight and water and the casket that has been placed inside. Linings and butyl seals merge the cover and base of the vault into a water-resistant unit. They work together to keep the effects of outside elements from damaging the casket and its contents.
