Possibly another silly question. But what are electrical meter cabinets made from?
The one I have is the type outside the house on the wall, recessed into the wall.
Trouble is, this is looking quite old & tatty, with a number of chips to it. I was considering getting it changed, but a friend said it could be asbestos (sigh, I hear you all say :-) ), so possibly best left where it is.
Gut feel is that it is actually fibre-glass or similar.
Any ideas what these are usually made off. The house was built approx. 1972/3, so this has probably been there since then.
