Concrete Box vs. Trigard Lined, Sealed & Warranted Burial Vault

What you need to know…

  • A backhoe is the preferred choice for the opening of the grave.
  • A vault 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 casket from continuous downward force of the soil.

Premium Casket Protection

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


Trigard lined burial 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. 


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