No. Our service area covers donít just cover the face of the panel, they also come with dividers attached so you can not run wiring from the service area to the rest of the panel.

I guess sometimes you're forced to use MLO panels fed by a main breaker?

All our panels come with the barrier if they are service rated. Some have the barrier as a second cover underneath the main cover, some split like in the picture. Only required for residential and only for the service conductors as they can not be turned off. The only wiring allowed in the service area are the service conductors and the main ground. That is why we have to mount our panels sideways sometimes.

Our code refers to a "service box" which is a separate disconnecting means. Our panels are essentially considered two units, one for service conductors and one for branch circuits.

Yep, and because MB panels are so common it is sometimes cheaper to buy a MB panel than a MLO panel.

It's essentially a main disconnect and a sub panel all in one.

Holy smokes...i just looked up what the circuit breakers cost for the Leviton
panels.

What exactly do they think their selling point is here? Fast install?
My azz.

$10.00 + for a standard SP breaker
$100.00 + a 20 amp AFCI

Leviton should concentrate on getting their s**t together on
their crappy devices before they even think about this.

I think some people at Leviton are gonna be in the soup line soon
