Burial and Urn Vaults
A vault is a lined and sealed outer receptacle that houses the casket or urn when it is buried. It protects the casket from the varying levels of subsoil elements, the weight of the earth and heavy maintenance equipment that will pass over the grave. It also helps resist water and preserves the beauty of the cemetery by preventing the ground from settling. The difference between the burial and urn vault are their sizes. The first being larger and used for caskets while the second is much smaller to house an urn. At San Tan Mountain View we use Wilbert Vaults, the finest and most dependable vault made. They are also highly customizable.
