Commercial Products - In Front/Out Front Vertical

 Perfect for small corridors, narrow walkways or fire exits where space is limited as the unit does not protrude far from the wall (135mm or less).

These units can also be recessed into the wall but are unsuitable for a space where large quantities are needed and surface area is limited.

Because this product is tall and slim there is an automatic preferred limit of three to the number of units that can be comfortably used vertically. As a rule of thumb the top of the top box should not exceed 1750mm from FFL, and the bottom of the bottom box should be no lower than 500mm.  

Commercial Products - In Front/Out Front Vertical

The working height then will be 1250mm, therefore a full sized product will only allow 3 units in the height, equalling equivalent to 9 units per m².

This range is devoted to a variety of mailboxes where the mail is delivered and retrieved through the front face. Where mail is delivered into a mailbox which holds the mail vertically i.e tall and slim.

Commercial Products - In Front/Out Front Horizontal

Where mail is delivered into a mailbox which holds the mail horizontally i.e. short and deep.

An ideal solution when a large number of units are required in a small surface area, but not suitable for narrow walkways or corridors as the units will protrude from the wall, unless they are recessed.

Commercial Products - In Front/Out Front Horizontal

Example solution

If the top of the box was at 1750mm above FFL, and the bottom of the bottom was fixed at 500mm above FFL, the working height of 1250mm could accommodate upto 12 units vertically depending on the product selected from this range. Equalling equivalent to 36 units per metre squared.

Wall Mounted Mailboxes, Postboxes and Letterboxes

Here at the Safety Letterbox Company we offer a comprehensive range of Wall Mounted Postboxes, Letterboxes and Mailboxes....

Fire Rated Mailboxes

The Safety Letterbox Company in association with the Fire Research Laboratory worked together to create a range of 1 hour fire rated (integrity only) mailboxes.

Particularly suitable when mailboxes can only be positioned within a designated fire escape route or banked in a post room which must be fire rated.

The products in this section were required to satisfy the integrity criteria given in BS476 Part 22 1987 Clause 8 for a period of 60 minutes.

In addition to the above, the mailboxes can be further enhanced by applying a finish which would conform to London Underground surface spread of flame requirement BS476 Part 6 & 7

Fire Rated Mailboxes

Letter Boxes - Flap Lock

According to the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO) there are three distinct crime risks associated with letterflaps in doors.

Fishing (theft via a letterflap), Lock manipulation (the ability to open the lock via the letterflap), and Arson (a firework or flammable liquid poured through the letterflap).

There are continually shocking stories in the news of people living in fear of these crimes.

We were approached by an Arson task force in the UK to produce a solution. We now have 3 options – FlapLock™ 1, for domestic/ private use, FlapLock™ 2, a heavier duty tested Secured by Design approved product, and Homeguard, a long established product of ours used to fit at the rear of a front door to contain mail and fire. All manufactured in the UK.
