My comment on this is that the way the housing is fastened on by  
screws on the side will present a problem and more or less remove  
most of the advantage of having a removable cover. If the module is  
mounted in the spacecraft and you need to remove the cover for a test  
or adjustment, You have to remove the module first since access to  
the screws on the side is blocked by adjacent boxes.
It would be better if you could remove the cover by accessing from  
the top some way. Perhaps a top hat profile would be better.
