Meter Box Switch

Simple and safe de-energisation, the new meter box switch is ideal for the convenient and safe de-energisation of a domestic property’s electrical supply. Supplied complete with a double pole switch disconnector isolator it is the perfect way to isolate the electricity supply before the consumer unit.

Simple and safe de-energisation

The Hager Meter Box Switch has been designed with safety as standard. There would usually be a number of safety points to consider when specifying such isolating switches, the Hager Meter Box Switch will help you to overcome these issues.

You really don't want to mess about with electrical power, especially when is comes to de-energising the entire supply to a property.

So what makes the Hager Meter Box Switch better than the rest?

  • Secures and holds cables
Cable clamps secure the meter tails to prevent them working loose and potentially causing a fire. These have undergone extra rigorous tests to ensure that they cannot be pulled out or work loose under normal installation conditions.
  • Prevent access to supply
The anti-tamper screw cap and wire seal prevents unauthorised access. There is no need or temptation for anyone to access the meter or, if already installed, the cut out fuse.
  • Fully tested to BS EN 60947-3
Safety first is our maxim, which is why our meter box switch has been conditionally short circuit tested to 16kA.

The Case for Providing a Means of Isolation in Smart Meters

The Smart Meter programme presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to address a longstanding electrical safety issue across Great Britain. This issue concerns the temporary de-energisation of electricity supplies to domestic and similar premises to enable electricians to safely carry out certain electrical installation work, including the replacement of consumer units.
