How To Measure My Damaged Meter Box?

FAQs Meter Box Repair

Measure your existing, damaged Meter Box by taking the 3  external measurements as indicated below.

Note whether it is gas or electric - (Gas need louvred doors for ventilation)

When measuring a damaged meter box, it is very important that you measure carefully, without adding any extra to the height, width and depth. 

Please note the depth is only what is protruding from the wall.


Once you have those measurements have a look through our Meter Box Repair Units and find a unit that will fit over your existing damaged frame. Your new repair unit should be slightly bigger than your existing, damaged meter box.

Floor-Mounted or Ground Gas Meter Boxes

For Semi-concealed or semi-submerged gas meter box, please measure the external frame without the lid, like in the images below:
