The risers are available in 6” (15 cm) lifts and can be stacked to fit any application. 12”, 20”, and 24” (30 cm, 51 cm, and 61 cm) diameter risers and covers are available. 24” (61 cm) diameter riser pans and adapter rings are also available. The 24” (61 cm) riser pan fits anywhere in the riser stack. A handle is included with the riser pan kit, so it can be cast into a concrete lid.
