An electricity meter box provides a secure waterproof container for your electrical equipment. There are different styles of meter boxes depending on your preferences. If you’re having work carried out by us then one of our surveyors will talk to you about the meter box position and any questions you have. Meter boxes are the responsibility of the home owner.
A built-in or flush mounted meter box is commonly used for new house builds, it fits flush against the outside wall. To fit this a cavity needs to be created in your property wall then the box fits into the cavity.
A surface mounted meter box is the easiest type of box to install and can be screwed directly to your property wall.
Your electrician will be able to recommend suppliers. You will need to install the meter box yourself. It must be lockable and made from glass reinforced plastic with a baseboard fitted inside to mount the meter and electrical equipment. Please make sure you purchase a meter box that is the correct size to fit electricity equipment inside, slim fit boxes do not comply with our standards because they aren’t big enough.
