Over the past few months, Britain has suffered countless times in the face of severe weather including high winds and excess rain causing masses of flooding and damage across the country. Many people have been left without power for extend periods of time, roads have been left un-driveable and many possessions have been ruined in the aftermath. As the great British weather becomes more and more uncertain, it is important to take extra precaution to ensure the likes of external utility meters are protected against these adverse conditions.
External meters can be protected with boxes made from glass reinforced plastic – better known as fibreglass. These external gas meter boxes offer added protection against poor weather, improving the longevity of such equipment. External gas meter boxes can offer a shield for as long as twenty five years making them a worthwhile investment – especially with the unpredictability of the weather.
They are often designed with ample ventilation slots which can improve airflow during the changing seasons. These boxes are usually coated with a compound with can help to delay and even subdue flames, adding to the boxes protective properties.
The meter boxes can be purchased in a variety of colours which can be tailored to your requirements including green and red. Some companies are also able to offer a stone or brick finish to the boxes which could help the box blend with its surroundings – thus making it less attractive to thief’s.
Gas meter boxes can be floor standing or affixed to external walls depending on your specific needs. External gas meter boxes usually offer ease of access for maintenance with the help of lockable, hinged entry doors. These locks can also help deter vandals from destroying the expensive pieces of equipment stored within.
