Cover the existing damaged GRP units with durable, powder-coated steel meter box repair units, painted brown to match. Read more for all options and sizes available and a how-to video.
Due to a planned shutdown of our paint shop, lead times for our products will be extended. We are installing specialist safety systems and are therefore having to work to 7-10 working days if in the item is in stock and 4 weeks for out of stock items, to cover the closure. We will aim to return to our usual delivery times as soon as we can. Apologies in advance for any inconveniences caused.
Ritherdon started designing door and frame units nearly 40 years ago. At that time the answer to this question was clear. The electricity and gas boards owned the meter box and were responsible for them. Then came deregulation, and these organisations were no longer necessarily the billing company, so they no longer had this responsibility so it appears that the consumer (usually the property owner) is responsible for its maintenance.

If you are repairing a Electric Meter Box (Left), these units are unvented for extra protection from the elements. If you are repairing a Gas Meter Box (Right), these units are are vented so any possible leaks would be vented out of the box to eliminate any dangerous gas build ups. Gary Ravetta March 2018
