What is a Burial Vault?

Visit a cemetery today and you are apt to see a number of different methods people have used to pay respect to someone loved who has died. The most common form of interment today remains underground burial with a casket. Many cemeteries require the use of an outer burial receptacle designed to receive the casket and capable of withstanding the weight and pressures of the earth above and around it. This requirement is essential for the beautification and continued maintenance of the grave and the cemetery.

The burial vault is a sealed outer burial receptacle which protects against moisture, the weight of the earth, and the elements, in a subsoil situation. WILBERT brand name burial vaults provide complete, hermetically-sealed protection for the casketed body. They are recommended and furnished by leading funeral directors nationwide including the FRANK E. HILL FUNERAL HOME. Inc..

For their unparalleled, enduring protection, WILBERT burial vaults are selected by more families than any other brand.

WILBERT vaults serve several important functions: they receive the casket and protect it from all sides. By completely encasing the casket with hermetically-sealed protection, the WILBERT burial vault gives more assurance than other type vaults.

The burial vault is employed exclusively for underground interments. WILBERT brand name burial vaults provide the very finest in enduring underground protection. They are constructed of durable, high-strength concrete, with a seamless, uniform liner epoxy-bonded to the inner concrete surface of the burial vault through WILBERT's exclusive Unidex System. WILBERT's proven tongue and groove sealing design coupled with a specially-formulated sealing compound merges the cover and the base of each burial vault to form a water-proof, airtight unit.

There are six WILBERT burial vaults: the Wilbert Bronze, the Triune, SST/Triune, Venetian, Continental and Monticello. They are designed with numerous quality feature differences from which each family can make a satisfactory selection. Listed below are our prices for the Wilbert line in the Columbus, Ohio area, complete with a description and picture of each unit.
