Outer Interment Receptacles

Burial vaults are an accepted means of enclosing the casketed remains of a loved one within a grave. The purpose of a burial vault is to maintain the grave from the effects of settling and protect against outside forces of water or excess weight. At Halvey Funeral Home, we represent Wilbert Burial Vaults, providing only Wilbert's quality vaults to our families.

Wilbert Burial Vaults are manufactured of strong reinforced concrete lined with a variety of carefully selected plastics and metals to assure the utmost durability and peace of mind.

In most areas of the United States and Canada, a cemetery requires the casket to be enclosed within a burial vault or grave liner. There are vast differences in these two products. 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.
Concrete becomes stronger as it continues to cure after being placed in the ground; so a vault properly buried years ago could actually be stronger today.

Wilbert 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 Wilbert vaults are made to exceed cemetery requirements for strength and rigidity.
