What Are Burial Vaults Made Of

What is a Burial Vault?

A burial vault is a lined and sealed concrete receptacle designed to protect the casket from outside elements such as water, and downward soil pressure caused by backhoes or other heavy maintenance equipment at the gravesite.

This also helps preserve the cemetery or memorial park by preventing the ground from collapsing or settling.

Why choose a Burial Vault?

While you probably understand the need of a casket, you may not know the important role of a burial vault.

Trigard lined vaults are designed to hold the weight of the earth, and more importantly, to protect your loved one and casket investment after burial.

Trigard’s cover, the thickest in the industry, helps the vault withstand the stresses each vault incurs from delivery to the interment.

Our “down and out” cover design helps distribute the weight of the soil to the vault’s perimeter for a better seal.

Learn why burial vaults are more effective, safe and secure for families and cemeteries than standard concrete vaults.

Frequently Asked Questions

Yes, our burial vaults are watertight to secure the casket and your loved one from water damage. Not only is the seal watertight, but the vault is durable enough to withstand immense pressure from the heavy machinery that digs the grave. You can rest assured knowing that your Trigard Vault is sealed, secured and comes with a warranty.

The prices of burial vaults depend on several factors: ‘tier’ of protection, personal photos, backgrounds, emblems, military honors, interior lining, base, cap and cover type, nameplates, etc. Work with your local Trigard Vault dealer to get the vault of your dreams, peace of mind and an excellent price.

Every state is different when it comes to burial laws, and some cemeteries require the use of a burial vault or grave liner. Contact your local funeral home to find out the laws in your area, as well as the cemetery for your planned burial.

The big difference between a grave liner and a vault is that the vault is lined, sealed and often warrantied, while the grave liner is not sealed or warrantied, and provides little protection from the outside elements.

 What you need to know…

  • A backhoe is the preferred choice for the opening of the grave.

  • An outer burial container protects the casket from the downward soil pressure caused by the backhoe to and from the gravesite.

  • Trigard’s cover design adds strength to protect the vault and loved one’s remains from continuous downward force of the soil.
