Although it is said that "distant relatives are not as good as close neighbors, and close neighbors are not as good as opposite doors", this is not the case for meter boxes and fire hydrant boxes! They are not suitable to be neighbors. Why do you say so? Let's see what the meter box manufacturer says below!


Electricity meter box is a power supply and metering equipment, which is required by every household. The fire hydrant box is used to place fire-fighting tools, which is divided into indoor and outdoor. It can be seen everywhere in public places, office buildings, workshops, schools and hospitals; Fire hydrants shall be placed in public shared spaces such as corridors or halls, and obstacles shall not be set in front of them to avoid affecting the opening of fire hydrant doors.


Outdoor fire hydrant is a water supply facility set on the fire water supply pipe network outside the building. It is mainly used for fire engines to take water from the municipal water supply pipe network or outdoor fire water supply pipe network to extinguish the fire, or directly connect the water hose and water gun to extinguish the fire.


With the advent of winter, the temperature drops, people have more opportunities to use large-function electrical appliances, and fire accidents also increase. There are many fires in the meter box due to various reasons. The installation of electricity meter box is the beginning of users' power consumption. The source of fire accidents due to improper power consumption and other reasons, and the fire hydrant is the end of the fire. Can you fit the meter box closer to the fire hydrant?


The safe distance between the meter box and the fire hydrant is not specified, but the fire protection law stipulates that it is strictly prohibited to install the water source and the power supply in the same position. For fear of power leakage caused by water leakage, keep away from 5m as far as possible, so the meter box and the fire hydrant box cannot be neighbors.
