    Walk in outdoor metal clad fused switchgear

    Dumb question- but does such a beast exist? Or is all fused outdoor gear external access doors?
    I'm in over my head...

    It is not a dumb question; strange, unusual, and possibly bizarre but not dumb.

    You do get some interesting ideas popping into that mind of yours.

    I know about the draw out breakers- but not everything 100% fuse. My plan is to mount the transformer protection (DTT and such) on the other side of the enclosure.

    The supply transformer's 34.5kv primary which is outside the 13.8kv gear. I want to avoid a separate control hut. Figure I might cram everything into one.

    Unless the transformer primary gets fused also
