The HR260-1c chuted rear access letterbox is the most commonly specified door entrance mailbox for developers looking for an integrated mail delivery system. Offering a generous capacity of just over 8.5 litres despite its compact dimensions of 260 x 110 x 300mm (width, height, rigid depth), it can be installed into any cavity wall or double-glazed door entrance panel. It is both EN13724 and Secured by Design Homes Guide 2016 compliant and recommended for specifiers looking for a postal delivery system that restricts entry by personnel into an apartment building. Available with either a solid 2mm aluminium panel (for through-wall application) or a 24mm thermally broken one-piece front plate (for glazed door entrances).

    The HR260-1c front entry rear retrieval mailbox is designed to be banked together with other units in the range to create a post box bank. Typical bank sizes are between 6 to 30 units but can go up to 60+ units if required.

    Post Boxes UK offers an integrated service for mailbox installations of any size, which includes everything from the initial planning and schematic drawings through to delivery. Please contact us to discuss your project requirements.


    The HR260-1c multiple-occupancy postbox can be specified for through-wall installations, whereby it is installed through a cavity wall or double-glazed applications such as door entrances and glazed shop fronts.

    The 24mm thick front panel for glazed-in applications is thermally broken and designed to fit into and be held in place by the double glazed profile, effectively replacing the piece of glass, as you would a blanking panel. Once fitted into the double glazed profile, the whole bank of mailboxes is self-supporting – with no need for internal support. As such, installation into double glazed profiles should always be carried out by a qualified glazing contractor.


    To complement the internal lobby area in which it is situated, the HR260-1c chuted mailbox is offered in a choice of standard and non-standard RAL colours.


    Our standard lead-time for the HR260-1c communal mailbox is 4 weeks for bespoke projects, however, larger mail bank installations may require additional lead time. We will advise you of this during the design process. Please contact us for up-to-date information.
