A UK company has developed and patented a line of secure letter and mail box products under its own brand. Focusing on prevention, this product can eliminate all letter/mail box related risks of arson, fire, burglary, mail theft, heat loss and flooding. Letter and mail boxes are essential for mail deliveries but the publicly accessible products are subject to crime, vandalism attacks and mail theft. Many doors in existing buildings, although marketed as ‘eco', ‘secure' or ‘fire rated' are not fit for purpose. This is because they incorporate an unprotected /under protected letterplate which exposes the premises and the occupants to all four main risks defined by the insurance: fire, water damage, malicious damage and weather-related damage. The products developed by the UK company are secure by design, maintenance-free and rely on the force of gravity to banish all liquids (including inflammables) from letter and mail boxes. Introduction of solid hazards is also hindered at the letterplate point. Product's strong steel body provides further protection. The company's products also feature enhanced security against thieves, who target letter and mail boxes for pulling out checks, cash, identifying information, or other valuables. Installing the new product does not compromise the door structure or its external appearance. The products are already on the market – a number of products were manufactured, sold and fitted at customer's premises. The company is looking for business partners to sell their products under a license or distribution agreement. The business partner sought should be able to provide evidence of successfully supplying similar products for at least one year.
Innovations and advantages
The product is suitable for fitting at high or low level to nearly any door and easy to install without compromising the door structure. The product banishes all liquids (including inflammables) from letter/mail box and stops solid hazards' introduction at the letterplate point. Hence, it secures houses against all letter plate related risks: fire, water damage, malicious damage and weather-related damage. The product reduces energy consumption and brings an average annual savings of 6% on energy bills. The product is environmentally-friendly and brings an average annual reduction in CO2 emissions of approx. 300Kg. Extended applications allow convergence between physical and electronic security solutions and more.
