Link boxes are used throughout the electrical distribution network for interconnectivity between different points of supply. Access to the Link Boxes is vital during fault situations and pre planned network operations. Link boxes are concealed below surface level and access is gained by way of a substantial concrete lid. The lids are designed in such a way that prevents tampering. After long periods of inactivity, the lids themselves often become stuck with detritus, and the metallic elements are prone to rust, making lifting difficult.
