Burial Vaults

Designed to protect caskets and urns once interred or buried, vaults are lined and sealed to be water and mildew resistant. 

Due to their solid construction, they also support the ground around the grave and keep it from subsiding. Vault prices depend largely on the features offered, from lined and sealed vaults to single-reinforced, plastic lined models.
Whether or a casket or urn, our vaults can all be personalized to your taste. There are many reasons to purchase a burial vault, some of them include: Providing family with a sense of security, protection for the casket after burial, warranty, peace of mind, and to exceed the expectations of family and what they deserve.

How Concrete Vault Protection Withstands Different Types of Loads 

Burial vaults are created to protect their contents after being buried or interred.  Due to their solid construction, they also support the ground around the grave and keep it from subsiding. Below is some information about typical stressors burial vaults may encounter after burial.

  • Static Load

    Static or stationary load is the weight of earth pushing directly on the casket or burial vault.  This can be as much as 4,000 pounds (or two tons).

  • Dynamic Load

    Dynamic loads vary in intensity.  In a cemetery, this type of load is transferred to the casket or burial vault, as heavy cemetery equipment passes over a grave.  Most cemeteries use a backhoe to prepare for burials.  These machines weigh on average, close to 25,000 pounds.

  • Impact Load

    Impact or Shock Load is a very concentrated force that permeates through the soil.  In a cemetery setting, this is often produced when mechanically tamping (or compacting)  the soil covering a casket or burial vault.  Lowering the backhoe bucket while preparing adjacent graves is another common way impact loads are experienced. This can have an extreme effect on even a small area of the burial vaults cover.
