A burial vault is a protective outer container for a casket that provides long-lasting protection from the weight of the earth. For many families, a burial vault can also offer peace of mind that their loved one's final resting place is protected and safe. A burial vault also helps resist water and preserve the beauty of the cemetery by preventing the ground from settling. Many cemeteries require having a vault because it's a vital part in keeping your loved ones remains safe.

Why is a Burial Vault Important?

Maintaining the beauty and landscape of a cemetery requires the movement of heavy maintenance equipment over burial plots. The weight of these machines can cause a casket to collapse and the earth above and beside it to settle. A vault provides the strong and durable outer layer needed to protect the integrity of the casket.

Types of Burial Vaults

Burial vaults are typically made of concrete and are lined with a metal or composite material for additional protection from weather and elements like groundwater. In addition to concrete, vaults can be made of metal, plastic or composite material. Families can also choose to personalize a vault with emblems, words, and images.
