UTILITY ACCESS ADJUSTMENT RING BY MARCO

 

The MARCO universal utility access ring riser is a system of interlocking cast-iron sections that bolt together to form an adjustable-size ring. The ring fits into the original casting to raise the cover to the proper height after AC resurfacing. Ring risers are fully assembled.

 

MARCO (Manhole Adjustable Ring Company) formally known as UMAR, is an Oskaloosa, Iowa-based company that manufactures a segmented, insert-type ring that effectively raises the height of the utility access frame to accommodate for the asphalt overlay thickness.
