Secure letterboxes from Post Boxes UK give complete confidence your mail is safe and out of harm’s way. We stock an extensive range of communal high security mailboxes for apartments and flats, all conforming to the highest industry standards. Our aim is to design crime out of mail collection in our homes and work spaces, as detailed in Secured by Design’s Homes Guide. This is in line with Police initiatives to curb increasing incidents of mail and identity theft.
A secure mailbox supplied by us must meet strict construction and design requirements. There are also various upgrades and size options to consider.
A secure external post box should be made from strong, weather resistant materials. Our mailboxes are manufactured using high grade, European standard aluminium, steel or stainless-steel. Casing, doors and structure must be impervious to vandalism and attempts of opportunist theft.
Making sure secure letterboxes is are fitted with high quality locks is absolutely vital. Our mailboxes are all fitted with reliable industry approved locks. For extra security, certain models are fitted with a BS:EN1303 lock; a superior anti-theft lock to security class 6 with over 5 million usable differs. This is a premium cylinder lock and is used in our high-security / anti-theft post boxes; RV292, RH300-1 and RH300-2.
We prioritize design features that minimise vulnerability to theft. ‘Fishing’ for mail through letterbox apertures is unfortunately commonplace. To counter this we fit anti-theft baffles; a un-bendable steel lip fitted to the inside of the opening, making it virtually impossible for thieves to use their hands to ‘fish’ for mail. Another excellent way to prevent this type of crime is to opt for a larger capacity post box. The resulting height will make it much more difficult to retrieve post that has fallen to the bottom. A reduced aperture height is also a worthwhile consideration.
A Secure Wall Mounted Post Box
Professional installation is very important. A secure external post box should be correctly fitted, in line with your builder or joiner’s recommendation. Our secure mailboxes can be wall mounted, recessed or free-standing. We also advise you to think about where you will be putting your post box. Highly visibility and frequent footfall will help deter would-be thieves.
