The meter cover can be used for gas or electricity meter box installations with a vent position above / below the meter door, and is suitable for all kinds of weather due its durability.
The difficulty and cost of fixing a damaged box can be huge, but don’t be duped into purchasing a cheaper alternative that will end up being a nightmare to fit and likely to fall apart in days. This box cover is made from high impact engineering grade Thermoplastic polymer material, making it strong and resistant to damage.
