A burial or urn vault is a protective outer container for the casket or urn. It provides the casket or urn with superior, long-lasting protection against subsoil elements and the weight of heavy cemetery maintenance equipment. Burial vaults protect the casket from ground elements and immense weight after interment. We offer the very well known and respected Wilbert Burial Vault line. All Wilbert burial vaults employ high-strength structural concrete and Unidex®-bonded interior liners of high-impact thermoformed plastics. Several also offer durable interior linings of bronze, copper, or stainless steel.
Wilbert burial vaults are available in three strength categories:
- Premium Protection - Triple Reinforcement
- Standard Protection - Double Reinforcement
- Basic Protection - Single Reinforcement
If you plan on ground burial for the urn, many cemeteries may require it be placed in an urn vault. Lined urn vaults provide varying levels of protection against subsoil elements and weight of the earth. A lined urn vault is made of high-strength concrete and reinforced with durable plastic or a combination of durable plastic and metal (copper, bronze, or stainless steel).
