With the increased cost of today’s sophisticated electric meters, it is more important than ever to protect that investment from vandalism, tampering and severe storms. Brooks protective covers are constructed with heavy gauge galvanized steel and powder coated with an oven-baked enamel to withstand abuses that would normally destroy the meter. Protective meter covers greatly reduce current surge during electrical storms. Brooks round protective covers are available with or without a tough Lexan window, in a variety of lengths to fit almost any size meter. The hinged face plate opens to allow full access to demand reset meters. All units are easily secured with seals or padlocks.Mounting ears are provided for installation on Ringless meter sockets. For ring-type meter sockets, the mounting ears are snapped off, and mounting screws provided are used to install the cover.
