Frequently Asked Questions
If you have a question which we have not answered here, please contact us and ask away!
Q: Where can I find the make and model number of my electrical panel?
A: The majority of electrical panels have the make and model number displayed on a sticker located on the inside door of the panel itself. Simply open the door of your electrical panel to locate the sticker. Look for the number immediately following the words Front Cat No., Load Center Cover or Series. Below you will find examples from the following manufacturers (in order from left to right) Eaton, Cutler-Hammer, SquareD, General Electric. If you are struggling to locate your make or model number, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out through the ‘Get in Touch’ section of our website, and we will be pleased to assist you in your search.
Q: What if I can’t find my electrical panel make and model number in the inventory listing of the ‘Shop Online’ section?
A: We have done our very best to include as many make and models as possible. There are several different companies who manufacture electrical panels, each company selling a wide range of anywhere from 100-700 different models. The process of constructing a database which includes them all is a daunting task, but we are working on it!
We custom measure each make and model to ensure that the Fuse-In Designs™ cover fits perfectly. If you do not see your make/model in our inventory, please contact us via e-mail at email@example.com , or reach out through the ‘Get in Touch’ section of our website and we will be happy to walk you through taking the necessary measurements to create a cover that will fit your make and model.
Q: How can I customize my Fuse-In Designs™ electrical panel cover with a personal image, design or quote?
A: We will be pleased to create a one of a kind panel cover for you. Eventually we will have a personalized upload portal, in the meantime however, send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or reach out through the ‘Get in Touch’ section of our website, requesting a custom made Fuse-In Designs™ cover.
Q: I see a design that I like and I wish to order it in certain size, but this size does not seem to be available as an option, is there a reason for this?
A: Not all designs are capable of being altered to fit the dimensions of some of the longer electrical panels, as a result, only the designs that are able to fit within the precise dimensions of the make and model #’s within our database, as well as the dimensions of our S, M and L guidelines are listed as options for selection.
Q: I would like to order an adhesive cover from the customizable frames and whiteboards collection, but this does not seem to be available as an option, is there a reason for this?
A: Designs from our customizable frames and whiteboards collections are not available for selection as adhesive covers, given the DIY nature of the product requires sizing the cover to fit your electrical panel, which requires cutting away a portion of the frame of the design. Thus, our customizable frames and whiteboards are only available as magnetic coverings, where they are ordered to fit the precise measurements of the specific make/model of the electrical panel.
Q: Will I be violating any residential electric and or fire codes by covering my electric panel with a Fuse-In Designs™ decorative cover?
A: Covering your electric panel with a Fuse-In Designs™ covering DOES NOT violate any standards of the National Electric Code, the Ontario Electrical Safety Code, the Canadian Electrical Code OR any Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations.
Fuse-In Designs™ covers ensure that electrical panels are readily accessible while remaining easily and obviously recognizable. Covering your panel with a picture, a mirror, a book shelf, or any other object that hides or makes it unrecognizable as an electric panel constitutes a violation of the "readily accessible" standard and IS a fire hazard.
Q: I have an electrical panel in my place of business, can I cover a commercial electrical panel?
A: Most commercial electrical panels are required to be locked when placed in a location accessible to the general public. Locked panels are still considered readily accessible, as long as the keys can be quickly accessed by qualified persons. Fuse-In Designs™ can create a custom decorative panel cover featuring your company logo, tag line or advertisement to meet your business needs.
