Protect your Equipment with External Gas Meter Boxes

With the cold weather of the British winter quickly closing in, leaving external meter equipment – like gas meters - uncovered could cause masses of damage. From cracked pipes and display screens to completely dysfunctional meters, the damaged caused could become costly. One solution to guard this equipment could be by using a protective covering. This cover or box could offer a shield from not only the weather – including rainfall, frost and ice - but could also act as a security deterrent to keep the equipment safe.External Gas Meter Boxes

External gas meter boxes will offer the protection needed against the bad weather. Many boxes are made with glass enforced plastic, also known as fibreglass, which helps to improve its rigidity and offers greater protection. Fibreglass can be easily moulded into shape depending on design requirements, making it a flexible yet strong material to cover gas meters. The majority of companies will offer the addition of vents to comply with regulated standards and can usually offer a life expectancy of the boxes of over 20 years – a small investment at the start could reap many protective advantages over a long period of time.Without a box covering, meter readers could become irreparably damaged – due to the weather or even vandalism – which without a doubt, would be far more costly.

External gas meter boxes should also offer protection against possible fire damage. All good meter boxes will offer this protection using non-flammable materials or resins. This barrier against fire adds to the functionality of these boxes, again, making them a worthwhile investment. Gas meter boxes can also add security protection against unauthorised hands. With optional extras including key lockable security panels, gas meter equipment can be securely fixed externally without the high risk of the equipment being tampered with.

With various sizes and designs available from a height of 74cm through to large industrial boxes with a height of 180cm, all requirements can be met. Some companies will also offer installation of the box and delivery – making it a very easy investment product purchase.
