The 5300 MC and MCDD weatherproof metering cabinets are specially designed for outdoor installation of metering transformers to protect against rain, sleet and snow. The 5300 MC/MCDD are made of high quality 14 GA and 16 GA galvanized steel, with tack welded corner seems. The integrated drip shield allows water to easily flow off of both ends of the enclosure, thus limiting the intrusion of water. The opening has a curled lip around all sides to increase rigidity and prevent dripping water from entering the enclosure when the door is open. A high quality, robotically poured in-place, seamless gasket ensures a complete and durable weathertight seal. The captive stainless steel pins of the concealed hinges can be pulled to remove the door. The doors are closed with a 3 point pad lockable handle. Internal mounting holes are provided. Each enclosure comes complete with a galvanized inner panel, which mounts on welded M8 studs. Enclosures 30 inch and wider have double doors, whereas smaller enclosures have single doors. Enclosures are finished with heat fused exterior powder polyester paint, electrostatically applied on a pretreated base. Box is ANSI/ASA 61 smooth gray.
