Electric Meter Box Repair

External electricity meters on domestic properties are usually installed in glass reinforced plastic (GRP) enclosures. However, these meter boxes are susceptible to damage from vandalism, the wind catching loose doors and general wear and tear.  These units are a quick and robust method for electric meter box repair.

Designed to repair a damaged meter box in minutes, covering all the accessible GRP with powder-coated steel, without having to disconnect the meter.  Ritherdon Door and Frame units provide a cost-effective and very durable solution to this problem.

Use the production selection table to help you choose the correct door and frame unit to repair your model of meter box.  Find all available sizes of electric meter box repair replacement door and frames below.
