space required to front of metering and distribution cabinets

(OP)
Hi all, Would anyone be able to advise how much space needs to be left in front of electricity metering and distribution cabinets in apartment buildings – the particular cabinet will serve 6 no apartments and a land lords supply. From recollection there is a minimum clearance distance needed but it is proving difficult to find the details, Thank you and regards,

RE: space required to front of metering and distribution cabinets

This is a code issue.
The requirement may vary from one jurisdiction to another.
Check your local codes.

RE: space required to front of metering and distribution cabinets

For starters see NEC 110.34 Working Spaces.

C. Please tell us a little more details:
a) the location i.e. in which "country" is the installation located,
b) the Regulation/Law (i.e. US NEC; Europe/Asia IEC or national regulation etc ...) that is applicable to the installation.
These information are vital as the regulation/law varies from state to state and some having their own or supply authority regulation or guidelines etc.
