This was my original question to Doug via a private message. I have heard that the panels used in Canada are designed with a cover arrangement that permits access to the load side breakers and bus without exposing you to the line side terminals on service equipment. If this is true I think that it is a great safety idea and would like to start the process of making such a requirement in the NEC. I guess I have two questions. Is your service equipment designed as I stated above? If so what code or standard requires this?
Doug, thanks for helping out with this question.
