What is a Burial Vault?
A burial vault is a lined and sealed outer receptacle that houses the
casket. It protects the casket from the weight of the earth and heavy
maintenance equipment that will pass over the grave. It also helps
resist water and preserves the beauty of the cemetery or memorial park
by preventing the ground from settling. To understand more about why
burial vaults are used, Watch video to below.
Burial vaults offered through the extensive Wilbert licensee network
are fabricated with a minimum 5,000 psi concrete and are combined with
various lining materials including bronze, copper, stainless steel, and
high-impact plastics for strength, water resistance and elegance.
Wilbert offers three categories of burial vaults, with differences in
the level of protection, warrantees, beauty, and personalization
options. To learn more about the differences among Wilbert burial
