Terminal and Tap Boxes

Milbank’s tap box was originally designed to help a utility prevent power theft. From the long blank trough with laid-in wires, people were able to tap in and steal power before it reached the meters. The tap box solution made the wires fed into and out of the box secure. 

Now, tap boxes have been adapted for use beyond the initial design. A great option for multi-tenant applications, the tap box takes power from the utilities and then distributes that power to multiple end users. A three-point latching system and padlockable cabinet make the enclosure secure.
