Heights and diameters are measured per 1/16 inches. Read More

Heights and diameters are measured per 1/16 inches. For example, our 401 can means 4 and 1/16 inches in diameter. This is because our measurements rely on metal end sizing. The diameter is measured based on the ID (inner diameter) of a can and is always given first.

Short

Our shorter containers range from 2 11/16" through 3 14/16" (or 65mm through 98mm).

Medium

Heights typically range from 4" through 5 8/16" (or 102mm through 140mm).

Tall

Tall containers range from 5 10/16" through 18" (or 143mm through 457mm). Height caps will vary by plant.
