We designed the Fire Rated R5 meter box back in the 1970s for the electricity boards who needed a more vandal-resistant and sometimes fire resistant alternative to the plastic meter box.  The design matching most closely in appearance the standard Small GRP box.

Supplied in two halves allowing fitting of the box during building work and hanging of the door later when there is less chance of site damage. Designed so that the door can be hung on the left or right hand side of the pre-installed box to best suit local conditions.

Meter board and earthing stud fitted to the box as standard. Cable entry holes fitted with blind grommets to allow choice of positioning. All boxes fitted with slam lock and supplied with easy to handle triangular plastic key. Available in ESI Small, Medium and Large sizes.

Fire Rated Version

In 1979 the standard R5 was tested to the BS476 Part 8 standard and gave 38 minutes fire resistance.  In 2013 we re-tested an upgraded version of the R5 to the latest, European fire resistance test method (BS EN1363 and 1366) and this model achieved >60 min fire resistance. We also have the standard R5 meterbox.
