I’ve seen several caskets built here on LJs. Is there any regulations to the construction of these things or is it anything goes as long as it will fit in the vault?

Just curious, who did you make this one for?

The only regulations that I know of is that they will fit in a vault or grave liner. Funeral homes are not allowed to refuse whatever ‘container’ you choose to be buried in. They will say that they cannot be held liable for any issues with a container that they do not provide – which is understandable.

This was made for inventory and is currently for sale.

If you would like more info on the regulations I can dig some up (no pun intended) and send it over.

Thanks for looking.

How long will something like this last inside a vault. Any idea?

Cruiszr: don’t really know how long it would last in a vault. I did some quick research and found that it really depends on things like soil type, humidity, temperature. One figure I found suggested 10-12 years for decomp without embalming.
