Burial Vaults

dirtstrength

Outer Burial Containers are not required by law. But to facilitate the beautification and maintenance of graves and cemetery grounds, many cemeteries require that the casket be placed in an outer burial receptacle capable of withstanding the weight and pressures of earth above and surrounding the receptacle. This requirement is met by a burial vault. A burial vault receives the casket and protects it against the penetration of moisture, the weight of the earth and the elements in a subsoil situation.

Why is a burial vault is better than an outer burial container?
In most areas of the United States and Canada, a cemetery requires the casket to be enclosed within a burial vault or grave liner.
By definition a burial vault is a lined and sealed unit that is specifically engineered to support the weight of the earth above the grave as well as the heavy equipment that passes over it.
The weight of the earth and heavy equipment used to dig graves far exceeds what an unprotected casket can withstand. A burial vault made of specially formulated, reinforced concrete is designed to support these elements and more.
Doric water-resistant, lined burial vaults are made to place protection from impact and moisture between the earth and the casketed remains of a loved one. All Doric vaults are made to exceed cemetery requirements for strength and rigidity.
