Concrete Burial Vaults
A concrete burial vault is a lined and sealed outer receptacle for the casket. The vault protects the casket in the grave from the weight of the earth and heavy maintenance equipment. The concrete helps resist water and preserves the beauty of the cemetery by preventing the ground from settling. Concrete vaults for caskets have multiple levels of protection, warrantees, beauty and personalization options to best fit the needs of the deceased’s family.
Joseph A. Lucchese Funeral Home exclusively uses concrete burial vaults manufactured by Wilbert. These vaults are fabricated with a minimum 5,000 psi concrete and are combined with various lining materials including bronze, copper, stainless steel, and high-impact plastics for strength, water resistance and elegance.
Wilbert offers three categories of burial vaults, with differences in the level of protection, warrantees, beauty, and personalization options:
Wilbert’s premium burial vaults provide excellent durability with superior long-lasting protection against subsoil elements and the weight of heavy cemetery maintenance equipment.
