A burial vault is used to protect the casket and body that is put inside it. It helps prevent the casket from sinking in under the weight of the earth above it as well as protects it from organisms and weather. It can also help slow down the decomposition process, although it can not fully prevent this.
Burial vaults can be made from plastic, concrete or metal – and it is largely a matter of personal preference and budget. A burial vault differs from a burial liner in that it completely surrounds the coffin inside it. A burial liner only provides protection from three sides – and not from the top. It provides no protection from outside elements, but does prevent the crushing of a coffin or casket from the weight of the soil above it and from cemetery equipment that is used in the burial process and maintenance.
