Choosing A Burial Urn Ð What You Need To Know
Not all urns are decorative keepsakes. In some cases, a family may want to bury a loved oneÕs cremated remains. In that case, normal urns wonÕt be sufficient to protect the cremains from the elements; being buried underground, the urn chosen for burial has to withstand high pressure and the elements Ð especially moisture.Burial urns
are also called burial vaults by some, but a burial vault is typically an enclosure designed to protect a coffin. Like a burial urn, it is sturdy enough to prevent damage from pressure or the elements Ð without a vault, a coffin would be crushed by the weight of the ground around it and the ground above it would be subject to potentially dangerous subsidences.
Burial urns at Urns.com are made from polypropylene, a tough and rigid plastic. Our burial urns
can withstand about 2,950 psi, or pounds of pressure per square inch.
Before burying an urn, be sure to consult local or state ordinances regarding burial to make sure that the burial urn you have chosen meets standards and that you have all the necessary permits.
