Electric Meter Box R16 Surface Mounted – Stainless Steel

The R16 in stainless steel is the meter box to choose when a surface mounted installation with extra strength and durability, is required. Manufactured from stainless steel, this is a particularly strong unit which will last even longer in harsh environments.

Available in two sizes, Medium and Large. Internally, the Large R16 is our largest standard meter box. Precisely because of its larger size, it is suitable for housing a three-phase meter.

The R16 meter boxes are supplied with a meter board and an earthing point. The door is fitted with weather resistant neoprene gasket and a slam cam lock complete with key. Cable entry facilities are provided in the back of the box and in the base.
