What is a Burial Vault?
A burial vault is a lined and sealed outer receptacle that houses the casket. A reinforced burial vault provides the casket with long-lasting protection against the elements and physical conditions such as ground water, heavy equipment and stacked burial sites. The burial vault also keeps the ground intact, preserving the beauty of the memorial park. Most cemeteries in British Columbia now require a burial vault.
Why Select a Reinforced Burial Vault?
There are three types of burial receptacles: the dome container, the grave box and the reinforced burial vault. A Wilbert lined burial vault will provide the best protection available for your loved ones. Years after you select a reinforced burial vault the integrity of the casket and the grave site will be intact. The Wilbert reinforced burial vault is made of the same concrete used for buildings. They are reinforced with a durable plastic or a combination of plastic and metal.
A columbarium is an above-ground structure designed for small vaults to accommodate cremation urns. Niches are the compartments in columbaria that hold interments. It is a cost effective and space saving product to maximize cemetery real-estate.
Hyland Precast have two styles of Columbarium Units. A 48 niche unit with each individual space measuring 13.5” x 13.5” x 11.5” and a 60 niche unit with spaces that measure 10” x 10” x 10”. The roof and sides are available in granite, exposed aggregate, and finished concrete. Each niche is lined with A.B.S. plastic for strength and durability.

An ossuary is a communal scattering place. A sealed concrete container or vault is buried underground and a tube connects it to the granite monument at the surface. Ashes are poured down the tube into the container and a bronze memorial can be placed on the monument.
We have many different sizes and styles of ossuary. Call our office today for more details.
