Stay on top of your meter boxes with PE Pipeline Specialists

Posted: 28 June 2024

If you are a contractor working on residential or commercial projects requiring gas or electric meter installations, you know how critical it is to have the proper meter boxes on hand. Running out can bring your job to a standstill.

Thankfully, at PE Pipeline Specialists, we stock a full range of meter boxes from leading UK manufacturer Tricel to ensure your projects keep on moving. From the popular UK Standard Mark 2 surface and recessed gas meter boxes to large 3-phase electric boxes, we have what you need in stock and ready for pickup or delivery.

Gas meter boxes

UK Standard Mark 2 Recessed Gas Meter Box (GB0001)

The recessed version of the Mark 2 gas box meets BS 8499:2017 standards and features GRP construction. It comes with a spigot, hinges, lock and key, and is suitable for all meters including prepay and smart. The product will not corrode thanks to its weather resistant manufacture, and it can easily be cleaned and painted.

UK Standard Mark 2 Surface Gas Meter Box (GB0002)

This surface-mounted gas meter box also meets BS 8499:2017 standards and has the same GRP construction. Constructed from durable, fire-retardant GRP, it includes MK2 backplates, hinges, lock and key. The door opens right-to-left and the three-part design allows removing the backplate for easy installation at the recommended 500-1500mm height. Like the GB0001, this product will also not corrode and can be cleaned and painted.

Electric meter boxes

UK Standard Recessed (EB0011)

Constructed from GRP, the EB0011 is suitable for all meters including prepay and smart. For electric meter installations, this recessed box complies with BS 8567:2012 and ESI 12-3. Cable entry and meter tail positions are pre-drilled with in-fill caps. The product also comes complete with timber backboard, hinges, lock and key, with its hinges on the left of the box.

Large 3-Phase Surface Electric Meter Box (EBP0032)

The 3-phase surface mounted box (EBP0032) is increasingly in demand for large residential and commercial installations. As 3-phase residential and commercial installations grow, PE Pipeline Specialists has you covered with this sizeable surface-mounted electric box. Compliant with BS 8567:2012, it offers ample cable entry knockouts and an easy-open left-to-right door.

Large 3-Phase Recessed Meter Box / Large Permali Recessed Box (EB0013)

Designed for larger 3-phase electric meter applications, the EB0013 is suitable for all meters including prepay and smart. Constructed from durable, weather-resistant GRP that won’t corrode, this meter box is also easy to clean and can be painted if desired. It features multiple cable entry knockout positions and comes complete with a timber backboard, hinges, lock and key – with the hinges conveniently located on the right side of the box.
