They are commonly used for gas, water, electricity, and other utility metre installations.
- What are the different types of metres used in utility systems?Utility systems utilise various types of metres, including gas metres, water metres, electricity metres, heat metres, and smart metres. These metres measure the consumption or flow of the specific utility to track usage and enable accurate billing.
- What are metre mounts used for?Metre mounts are structures designed to securely hold and support utility metres. They provide a stable platform for metre installations, ensuring accurate readings and protection against tampering or damage.
- What materials are commonly used for metre mounts and chambers?Metre mounts and chambers are typically made from durable materials such as plastic, concrete, or metal. The choice of material depends on factors such as the utility being measured, environmental conditions, and regulatory requirements.
- What is the purpose of metering chambers?Metering chambers serve as protective enclosures for utility metres. They provide a secure housing to safeguard metres from unauthorised access, weather conditions, and potential damage. Metering chambers also facilitate easy access for metre readings and maintenance.
- Are there regulations or standards for metering, mounts, and chambers?Utility metering, mounts, and chambers must adhere to specific regulations and standards set by relevant authorities or industry organisations.
