Years ago, Tuf-Tite invented the first “Riser Safety Pan,” allowing a concrete safety lid to be cast into a plastic riser system that could be placed anywhere in the column of risers. It’s a design so innovative, it remains an industry standard. 

Now the company is innovating once again. Tuf-Tite took the next step to make the first plastic internal safety lid for protection.

Tuf-Tite engineers knew that the original web design was extremely strong in the riser, but what about out of the riser? What if the internal safety lid was damaged in the field? Could it be reused? Others were using a similar web design, but Tuf-Tite moved in a new direction.

Tuf-Tite’s new internal safety lids sit in the riser on four ledges. The solid safety lid features an inspection port, screw or bolt holes to fasten the lid to the riser and concrete keepers that can hold 40 pounds of concrete. This design has proved to be one of the strongest safety lids on the market, in the riser or out of the riser, according to a company spokesperson.

Tuf-Tite requires that the internal safety lid be screwed or bolted down to the ledges on the riser below. For added safety, the Tuf-Tite safety lid can be filled with concrete, adding an additional feature unique to Tuf-Tite.

Every Tuf-Tite Riser Lid and Safety Lid comes with all the screws, including the horizontal safety screws for domed and flat lids.

Tuf-Tite manufactures a full line of patented septic and drainage products, which are among the best in their respective industries. From the innovative distribution boxes that have become an industry standard, to the patented effluent filters that prolong the life of septic fields significantly, each of Tuf-Tite’s products are engineered and manufactured to exceed expectations in both performance and longevity.

Tuf-Tite produced its first product in 1984. Years of polymer formulation experience and field testing have strengthened the full line of products the company produces today. Tuf-Tite is an American-owned and -operated company and all polymer products are manufactured in Lake Zurich, Illinois, where the modern and highly automated manufacturing, warehouse and shipping areas are all contained under one roof in a 165,000-square-foot facility.
