What is a technical cabinet?

A technical cabinet is the ideal enclosure to hide unattractive technical installations behind stylish cabinet doors. This custom cabinet is also known as an casing, meter cabinet, or fuse box.

It consists of a wooden frame placed in front of the 'cabinet contents.' 1 or 2 cabinet doors are attached to this frame.

Unlike a storage cabinet, a technical cabinet has no back wall, no side walls, and no shelves. So, it’s not a real cabinet but rather an enclosure around your technical systems. What exactly is a technical cabinet? A custom enclosure made by the most affordable carpenter in the country.
