Burial vaults are lined with plastic, fiberglass, stainless steel, copper or bronze. Stainless steel and bronze lined burial vaults are the strongest and can withstand the most static weight. Plastic and fiberglass lined burial vaults may be more economical.
Today, burial vaults can be personalized with various emblems (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, Knights of Columbus, Masonic, etc.), symbols (Crucifix, Cross, Star of David, American Flag, etc.) or even customized with photographs or meaningful scenes from the deceased’s life. They also can be painted a variety of colors.
