Clark Burial Vaults utilize a dome-shaped design which allows air pressure inside the vault to keep water below casket level.
Clark burial vaults are available in three non-porous metal thicknesses; 7 gauge, 10 Gauge, and 12 Gauge. (7 being the thickest and 12 being the thinnest).
The Clark enhanced series offers an extra measure of protection to the steel vaults through an exclusive galvanization process with Zinc which doubles the life of the vault.
The Clark Metal Protection Index (MPI) allows you to compare the amount of time the vault will protect its contents underground.
Each MPI index of 1 is equal to 33 years of protection.
A Clark vault will withstand the earth's load after 90% of the metal has been lost.
The MPI indicates years before the metal undergoes a 50% metal loss.
High-strength concrete, 26 GA stainless steel liners, and high-impact ABS TrilonÂ® thermoplastic combine for durable inner protection in our middle of the line, double-reinforced products.
Double-reinforcement provides the casket with superior long-lasting protection against subsoil elements and the weight of heavy cemetery maintenance equipment.
