Caskets & Alternative Containers
Our showroom has a wide assortment of wood and metal caskets for you to view in person. We also have several casket catalogs for you to view. It is permissible for the family to make a container, provided it is delivered to the funeral home, and a waiver of liability is signed.
Burial vaults and grave liners are used to support the soil around the casket and ensure that the soil above and around the casket will not collapse, which ultimately serves to minimize cemetery maintenance and keep the cemetery grounds looking nice.
Basic Features of Burial Vaults and Grave Liners
Both burial vaults and grave liners are outer containers that contain a casket if it is buried in the ground. A burial vault completely encloses the casket, and functions almost like a casket for the casket. A grave liner only covers the top and sides of the coffin and allows the bottom of it to be in contact with the earth.
Burial Vault Materials
Burial vaults and grave liners are often made of concrete and lined with plastic or metal, though they are also available in steel, bronze, and copper.
The air tray is used in air travel to support the casket.
