The Safety Letterbox Company releases new mailbox meeting Secured by Design standards

South Wales based manufacturer, The Safety Letterbox Company, has released a new mailbox that complies with the TS009 standard required by Secured by Design (SBD), the official police security initiative, to meet its Police Preferred Specification.

For more than 35 years, The Safety Letterbox Company has been designing, manufacturing, and supplying mailboxes and parcel boxes from their UK factory in South Wales.

Since its inception, The Safety Letterbox Company has been passionate about home security and producing specification driven mail and parcel solutions. These core values has led the business to work closely with SBD and testing bodies such as Warrington Fire Research Laboratory.

For the past 18 months, The Safety Letterbox Company has been developing a mailbox that is certified to the Door and Hardware Federation’s Technical Specification 009 (TS009) – the security standard required by SBD to deter and reduce crime – to provide the market with a commercially viable solution.

The result is a stylish vertical mailbox which is light in weight, aesthetically attractive, smaller than similar products available and affordable.

The mailbox is 110mm deep and can be banked, ensuring that any desired configuration is achievable. An additional layer of safety has been added to the mailbox through its performance to meet Class 0, the use of London Underground powder coatings, which is available in a variety of colours. The inclusion of this paint ensures that flames cannot spread across the surface of the mailbox, nor fuel a fire should a fire occur.

Regarding the launch of the new TS009-compliant mailbox, Alison Orrells, Managing Director of The Safety Letterbox Company, said: 
“TS009 is an example of a product developed to suit the very real needs of the market coupled with compliance to the standard.

“We did not want to produce a mailbox that merely ticked the standard, but one which was lighter in weight, more attractive in aesthetic quality, more affordable and with maximum security, through very clever design and detail.

“We are delighted that we have successfully achieved all of these elements. This once again demonstrates that we are innovators, designers and manufacturers at the forefront in our field, supplying direct to the market and fully committed and responsible as a British manufacturer, ensuring the best solution is available for use on projects.”
Hazel Goss, Development Officer, SBD, said: 
“This is an excellent product that provides a secure solution and can be used on its own for individual homes or banked to meet the needs of apartments, student facilities and major corporate organisations. Congratulations to Alison and her team for this innovative and stylish product and their commitment to creating a safer home and work environment.”
